A few weeks ago i had the chance to get a sample of the Dior Nude foundation, after being intrigued by all the awards and praises received lately. I was skeptical, i was told before it wont suit my oily-combination skin and that will be too light coverage for my liking. Oh boy, it was so further out of the truth.
Dior Nude is the best foundation i have ever tried in my life so far! Paired with the loose Nude Skin Powder, creates the most flawless glowing skin i have ever had. My sample (shade 030 if you are wondering) lasted about a week of daily use and without fail, every day somebody complimented my skin. I was simply glowing and it was in a good way.
Rich in water, this foundation simply glides to the skin and somehow manages to last the daily eight working hours. I use a flat foundation brush for application, but when on a hurry i used my fingers with the same success.
The loose mineral powder is magnificent as well, using the buffing brush i simply work it into the skin for a truly flawless airbrushed effect. Apparently it has a gel technology that helps to glide into the skin whilst looking natural. The compact is great for on the go touch-ups and its best to use a kabuki type/buffing brush for perfect results.
The only downside to my Dior discovery is the price: €54 for the refillable compact powder and €45 for the foundation. A bit steep for daily 9 to 5, but for special occasions definitely give it a whirl.
Unfortunately for my bank account, i simply must have now the Amber Lights highlighter and their new coral Bird of Paradise limited edition cheek palette. See for yourself here, how can you say no to that?!
