Hope your Wednesday was a good one.
I tried a sample today of Dior's DiorSkin Forever Foundation and after one day can say I think I'm falling in love!
I was matched to the shade 031 and am very pleased with how well it works with my NW25-NC30 skin. They don't offer a huge shade range (maybe 8 or 9?) so I can see that may be an issue for some skin tones.
I stippled it on with a rounded kabuki, and was amazed not only with the beautiful, buildable coverage, but how amazingly this seemed to minimize my pores (used in conjunction with MAC Prep & Prime SPF50+ and Covergirl & Olay Pressed Powder- more experimentation required!). Amazingly. My skin looks even, flawless, healthy and beautiful and I am not often saying that mid-afternoon believe me!
Today I feel like I have what I refer to as "air stewardess skin"- they always look so flawless, hydrated and amazing. This foundation finish is definitely not matte and it's definitely not dewy- it just a really healthy satin finish and it's amazing. After a lunchtime touch-up (blot and powder), it's still going strong after 8 hours of wear.
At $AU77 from Myer though, it'd better be bloody impressive!!
I've also heard wonderful things about the coordinating powder- have you tried it?
What do you look for in a foundation?
Have a beautiful day you beautiful ladies!
