Dior Star Foundation Review

Monday, 15 August 2016

As luxury brands go, I've never really had much interest in Dior products. I don't know why, but I just never felt drawn to their products although I've heard nothing but good things about them. For ages I was dying to try their Airflash Foundation, but when I was searching through blogs for reviews of Dior foundations, the Diorskin Star was definitely the one that stood out for me.

Diorskin Star is Dior's first brightening foundation that claims to instantly make your complexion more luminous. I would say it's a medium to full coverage foundation, which is right up my street for covering redness and blemishes. It's a weightless foundation that blends seamlessly onto the skin, and I've found the best way to apply it for a fuller coverage is with a Beauty Blender, or with your fingers if you're looking for a light finish.

I always use a primer under my foundation as I just prefer the way my makeup applies with it, but the lasting power of this foundation is incredible. I find that foundations tend to break up and get shiny around my nose after a few hours, but this doesn't budge at all once you apply it.
I love the dewy finish that the foundation gives - it's very natural looking on the skin. Although the coverage is brilliant it doesn't look cakey or heavy, it sits beautifully on the skin.
It also has SPF 30 which is a great addition, but I find that it gives bad flashback in pictures so just keep that in mind if you're wearing this foundation on a night out!

This has been my everyday foundation for a couple of months now and I don't see myself reaching for anything else any time soon. I wear two shades mixed, 10 and 20, to get the perfect shade for my skintone at the moment, but the shade selection is excellent in this line.

The Diorskin Star foundation is €49.50 and available on Dior counters now.
