Dior has recently launched their Diorskin Forever Undercover Foundation. This is a 24 hour, full coverage water-based foundation with a matte finish, suitable for all skin types. It contains the highest level of pigments out of all of Dior’s foundations and the water-based formula creates a weightless finish.
Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Make-up, describes the new foundation: “Incorporated in a very fluid texture, the high concentration of pigments ensures perfect blemish correction. What’s very new for such a high-coverage product is that you don’t feel or see it. The finish is fresh, and matte enough so that you don’t need powder.”
This foundation comes in a range of 24 shades, from the lightest to the darkest. I bought the one in shade 025 – Soft Beige – Light and I also tried the one in shade 020 Light Beige – Light. 020 was too light and 025 has a bit of yellowish undertone on me. I think the most suitable shade for me would be something between these two, but here, in Beauty Line Cyprus, they do not have the full range of shades. I would also say that this foundation is medium coverage, easily buildable to the full coverage with a second layer. I wore it for about 10 hours the longest. It gives me a matte look which is not cakey. It does not settle into lines and pores and it is transfer proof. I only have to touch up my nose with the powder after a few hours into wearing as it becomes shiny (I have combination skin).
The bottle is plastic with a nozzle. I like it as it is not heavy and fragile and it is very convenient for on the go. The foundation is a bit pricey (it costs 45,00EUR), but you get what you paid for and you also get 40ml, an extra 10ml as foundations are normally 30ml.
I am impressed with this foundation as it gives me a flawless, medium to full coverage matte look that feels very lightweight on the face and it is long lasting.
