Review: Diorskin Nude foundation
Product name: DIORSKIN NUDE (foundation)
Price: € 38,00
Description: Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup
The claims (as stated on the leaflet): "Containing nearly 40% water, this fluid foundation offers an instant sensation of well-being. Skin appears fresher, silky and feels more comfortable.
Thanks to micro-droplets of water, this foundation’s coverage is lighter than a “classic” fluid formula, and it evens out the complexion and makes it appear more radiant and transparent.
With daily use, the skin becomes more beautiful for an ever more natural and radiant result day after day."
My opinion: It is on the pricey side, true, but this foundation is amazing!
It is one of those second skin foundations (the latest trend after last year's minerals) which sets on your face without making you look cakey. It really does its job: I've never looked overly made-up, nor I have ever felt it was heavy on my skin.
It just evens out any discoloration and covers imperfections, leaving your skin to look really radiant. You look at yourself in the mirror and think: "oh, now I have a perfect skin!".
About the coverage: if this is light to them, I don't want to try the heavy one. It is absolutely perfect: I apply one very small dot on my forhead, cheeks, nose and chin and blend it in with my Sigma SS187 duo-fiber brush. The first layer is to even out my skin, then I build the coverage with a second layer, using the same amount of product. My skin looks flawless...it even hides my detested pores!!!
You really don't need much to make your face look amazing, so it will last for ages.
As for the skin improvement claim...I don't know if it is the foundation or the Normaderm treatment, to be honest, so I will not comment on that for now.
So overall, if you have some extra money, I can definitely recommend this foundation! It is fantastic. Packaging is very very nice, but also very heavy and dodgy (I pray I won't ever let it slip off of my hands because it is made of glass)...if you can call it a downside...
would I repurchase?: if I have the money to....hell yeah!!! ;)
