Dior Star Foundation UPDATE!

Standard

 

Hello Loves, here I am with an update on the Dior Star Foundation.

 

First of all let me tell you I am seriously in LOVE with this foundation for it really gives you that Flawless skin! (Click here to read my previous review). Logically speaking I am Honey Beige in Shade #40 but unfortunately this foundation does oxidize up to 2-3 shades (or maybe more) darker which is definitely a bummer! 😦  The reason why I don’t like it turning darker is because my contouring would just disappear within 2-3 hours and it would make my skin look dirty. And when you are out who wants to do touch-ups?! 

 

Anyways after trying several shades I reached to the conclusion that I should use Dior Star Foundation in Medium Beige which is Shade #30. Even though its a little bit lighter, after blending it sets in naturally into my skin.

Diorskin Star Foundation Review

Standard

 

So ladies during week-end I have tried and tested the new Dior Star Foundation. I have to say am really impressed with this foundation. I am NC42 in MAC and was matched with the Dior Star Foundation in shade #40.

Diorskin Star Foundation is the new member to the Dior foundation family.

Claims from the foundation:

” Inspired by the professional illuminating techniques and expertise of its makeup artists, Dior invents Diorskin Star, its 1st brightening foundation: a weightless fluid capable of instantly and over time recreating the spectacular and perfecting light of Dior Studios. Hollow silica beads captures and diffuses light in a correcting halo with no shine. Colour-filter pigments adapt to each skin tone and neutralize color imbalances to recreate the perfect light” 

Well I have to say I do agree with all the above claims BUT within few minutes it oxidized!!! So if I was to buy this foundation I would definitely buy it in One shade lighter.

As for the foundation itself the formula is thicker but it doesn’t go on with opacity. It is meant to be applied with a damp sponge. Dior Star is not oily, not sparkly, not obvious, no white-cast, just a perfect glow and despite having a high concentration of SPF 30 in it this foundation does not flash back in photography at all! Isn’t that cool!!! 😀

For the coverage this foundation offers a Medium to Full coverage and still looks like skin.  It literally makes your skin glow and It does make skin looks super flawless and I love it! It didn’t crease and my skin didn’t turn oily which makes me love it more and more. And yes it didn’t settle in my pores like how other foundations do. Me also love the smell. So for me this foundation is amazing apart from it oxidizing.

I definitely recommend Star and would also suggest to try different shades and see if it oxidize before buying the appropriate shade.

For the time being am hooked with my Quick Fix Exfoliating Scrub Mask. There is Glycolic Acid in this scrub and am super happy to see my skin tone evening. Click here to see my review.

 

3. What is your favourite highlighter?

My Favourite highlighter is Bourjois eyeshadow in #08 which is Beige Rose and is a perfect dupe for the MAC shroom. It can also be used as a base on your lids to bring out your  eyeshadow.

4. What is your favourite food?

I love chinese and Italian food. So if you put Fried Rice or Pasta in front of me I wont be able to resist! Hmmm….. Yummmyyyy!!! My mouth already watering! Hehe… 😛

Every time am going out of the house. I feel weird if I step out without wearing makeup.

8. Who is your favourite youtube guru?

I love Kevin James Bennett who is a Five Time Nominee and the Winner of Two Emmy® Awards for Outstanding Achievement in Makeup. He really inspire me. But when it comes to youtube its gonna be Wayne Goss for I think he really puts emphasis on educating the Make Up community rather than promoting himself or their sponsored brand like how other youtube gurus do. I think most of the youtubers do lack some credibility.

That was a very long answer! :s

9. If you were in Sephora right now, what would you pick up?

The Dior Star Foundation. It looked amazing on my skin in love with it!
