Dior just introduced the Diorskin Forever Undercover Foundation (C$64 for 40 ml) that comes in 24 shades to discover. This is a full coverage water-based foundation that delivers natural finish for up to 24 hours. The texture is light yet with the highest level of pigment in the entire range from Dior foundations, and twice as much of the original fluid foundation. The idea behind this foundation is to deliver the most natural and even out looking skin without feeling or seeing it on your skin. The foundation offer a fresh looking skin with a semi matte finish that you don’t need to set with powder. The formula has a soft focus effect that erases imperfections while diffuses light at the skin’s surface for a more blurring effect. It smooths out fine lines and hides pores and spots on complexion.
The Ultra fluid, water based foundation blends beautifully on skin without setting it with any kind of powder. The lasting power is amazing, it definitely takes you from day-to-night without any touch-ups. It is designed to give that full coverage, fresh looking skin to all textures (oily, combination and dry), although I did find this foundation to be more suitable to oily and combination skin. I have a very dry skin and my long time readers know – oils are the only moisturizer that keeps my skin hydrated. For me I found the foundation to be a little on dryer side during this dry and harsh winter time, but I think it’s going to be amazing during summer time.
I have been testing this foundation in different ways – alone, with primer, with oil, and with setting spray, as well as with different application method, just to experiment how it would work best on skin. I found the best application way is to use your finger tips, starting from where you want to cover the most, and slowly blend all over the complexion for a nice and smooth finish. I loved how it doesn’t set immediately, allowing you to correct and blend to your taste. You can always go back for more coverage by layering product. I personally love applying hydrating facial oil before application to give my skin extra hydration for a smooth finish. And definitely using the setting spray before and after application gives you that nice glow, especially of you have a dry skin like me. I used the Luminous Dewy Skin Mist from Tatcha and the Prep and Prime Fix from MAC cosmetics to prep my skin for the foundation, to set the foundation for a more radiant look.
I have been wearing the Diorskin Forever Undercover foundation along with the Diorskin Forever Undercover concealers reviewed here for last couple of weeks now and I must say they both go along very well, giving you that nice and airbrushed look. The Diorskin Forever Undercover Foundation cones in a great range of shades to enhance all skin tones from the lightest to the deepest. The packaging is neat and light, which makes it perfect to carry along while you’re on the go. As well as the unique dispenser allows you to have more control over the product use.
The Diorskin Forever Undercover foundation is a hit for me, although the texture is a little on the drier side right now but wearing it with my setting spray it literally gives me that perfect and even out skin I always wish for. Its going to be a truly one of the my favorite foundation for this summer time. It gives that coverage you need while it stays input all day long without any touch up. It’s doesn’t look any thing on skin and gives that blurred effect (not enhancing fine lines at all). You can now shop the Diorskin Forever Undercover foundation in store and online at Sephora and available in all Dior counters at Department stores.
