Dior Forever Foundation


High end makeup has always interested me but I could never justify spending so
much money on one specific product. But it finally happened when I was in London. 
As I was walking through House of Fraser to look at some handbags a lovely women 
who worked at the Dior makeup counter said that they had a expert makeup artist in
on that day and asked if I wanted to try out their new foundation, which I did.

When I sat down I was a bit comprehensive as I had a bad foundation matching 
experience at Mac and they matched me completely wrong. I explained this to the 
makeup artist and he said has heard stories of that often happening. He matched me
to shade 010 ivory, as it fits my skin tone but also gives me some warmth to my 
skin without washing me out and making me look almost 'flat'.

Before I talk about the foundation itself I just want to take a moment to appreciate 
the packaging. The foundation I got is the Dior diorskin forever foundation which 
comes in a beautiful elongated frosted glass bottle, with a black lid with the signature 
CD logo for Christian Dior alongside silver detailing and accents.

The foundation itself has SPF 35 whilst having pore refining effects and shine control.
One of the main things that made me want to buy this was that it gave high coverage
that is light weight, which is something that is important for me especially when 
buying a high end foundation as I don't want it to be cakey and cling to any dry patches.

This has luminous matte finish and is said to last 16 hours. I don't ever wear makeup for
16 hours or more so I haven't tested this to it's full potential but it does last all
day long and doesn't budge or go patchy when on my skin, which others have done.

I would recommend this to people normal to dry skin and combination skin as it gives a
 lovely dewy look to the skin. But I would also recommend this to people who have oily skin
as it is has the long lasting power of a matte foundation along with a slight matte finish.
If you are interested in this foundation then you can purchase it from department stores
such as; Debenhams, House of Fraser or Selfridges for £33 inc. VAT.
