Diorskin Forever Foundation

I tend to have a rocky history when it comes to foundations. I have quite dry skin and it seems that no matter what I do, foundations never sit right on my T-zone. Either they stick onto the dry patches I never knew I had or the foundation goes all oily after an hour of wear – despite the fact that I don’t have oily skin. These features of my skin I have learnt over time to combat but certain foundations make it worse than ever. This means that I’m very cautious when buying a new foundation- I never want to spend money on something which will make my skin look bad.

Diorskin Forever Foundation bottle

This is why I was hesitant when trying out the Diorskin Forever Foundation. I was actually gifted this by aunt when she bought a shade too dark for herself. Now, the foundation is actually too dark for my everyday makeup so I would wear this Foundation exclusively when going out. I have to say, I absolutely adore this foundation and it is by far the best I’ve ever worn. Read on for the properties of this foundation.

Description:

Dior’s ultimate skin-perfecting 16-hour foundation that delivers medium coverage and leaves a natural-looking luminous matte finish.  Available in 24 shades for all skin types.

The description of this foundation is definitely true, it’s a very long foundation with a natural yet matte look. The only thing is that the foundation doesn’t have a good range of colour options. Even out of the twenty-four shades available, the range is best for pale toned women. Even the palest shade is too dark for my skin tone.

Dior- A limited range of colours

Makeup Finish:

Diorskin Forever Foundation is formulated to give a perfect, flawless complexion to help minimize the appearance of pores, control shine and blur imperfections for a luminous velvety matte finish that lasts all day.

This comfortable liquid foundation melts into the skin and protects with SPF 35 broad spectrum.

Application Tips:

Start with a clean, moisturized face.

Step 1: Get your skin makeup ready and extend the wear of your foundation with Diorskin Forever and Ever wear makeup primer

Step 2: Apply Diorskin Forever Foundation with a brush, makeup sponge or fingertips

Step 3:  Set complexion with Diorskin Forever & Ever Control Loose Powder by evenly applying the powder over the entire face with a kabuki brush to perfect and set the foundation.

Formula:

Diorskin Forever Foundation helps control shine and deliver perfect complexion correction with a combination of mattifying and blurring powders. It veils the skin in a flexible, comfortable formula that holds the foundation in place all day. Like a stretchy mesh built into the formula, it sets the texture and pigments, leaving skin looking flawless and feeling comfortable.

Diorskin Forever Foundation is also formulated with skincare technologies that help to improve the look of pores and refine the skin’s texture over time.

My Review:

Overall I love this foundation. I don’t usually go for matte finish Foundations due to my dry skin but this one is perfect for my skin. It leaves my skin with a great finish without making it look terrible, which is always important when going out. The long wearing nature of the foundation is also amazing as I tend to enjoy going out at 7pm and still having a flawless face at 3am. It blurs imperfections and covers my pores brilliantly like no other foundation ever has before. It is very easy to blend into my skin as well. I have never had any problems with this foundation as it’s a great product.

The coverage is medium but can be built up to full coverage if that is the finish which you’d be interested in. This foundation is very expensive at €50.50 but I tend to find it is very worth it and I’m currently thinking about repurchasing it again as I have recently run out of it. It is non-greasy and looks amazing on all skin types. I had my bottle of Diorskin for around a year before I ran out of it so it definitely lasts a long time.

You can buy this foundation Here for €50.50.

Kiko Contouring pencil set

Hello beauties ❤️. Today I am back with a review of one of my favourite yet least favourite highlight and contour kits. To be precise, in this kit, I love part of it – the contour stick- but I hate the other part- the highlighting stick. Now I bought this set two years ago so this is no longer available on the market, however, their new contour kit is pretty similar to this one.


I only use the bronzer crayon of this set. The highlighter crayon is the same tone as my skin tone- I am too pale for light products- so I never use it. But whenever I wore during summer time- i.e when I had more tan than usual- I always found it to be very shimmery. It had the effect of applying glitter to your face. It did not last long and I have never been impressed with the highlighting skills of this crayon. It would have been perfect as a cheekbone highlighter but it had no staying power.

This is a swatch of both crayons… Only 1 shows on my skin!


The bronzing crayon on the other hand is what I use to contour. It is easily blendable and is leaves a natural yet flawless finish. It is a great shade for my pale skin tone. It does not wash out my skin nor is it too dark. The kit I had bought was the palest they offered in the store where I bought it. I believe in the shop, they only had three shades on offer. There was probably more online.

Although this particular kit is no longer available, I am keen to try kikos new contour crayons as mine are pretty much run out of bronzer.

Thank you for reading!
