If you’ve been following, I decided to do 10 days of foundation testing with 10 samples I got from Sephora. Read my introduction post to get all the details on what I’ll be trying and check out day one, where I tried Fenty and day two, the Sephora Collection.
For day three, I went with Diorskin Forever Undercover Foundation ($52). I have been dying to try this because I’ve never tried anything from Dior and they are obviously one of the top names in luxury skincare. There were only two colors in this sample pack, which was disappointing. I get that it’s free, but I wish there was at least one light, one medium, one dark, so no matter who tries it can get at least somewhat close to their skin tone. The light beige color was a bit too dark, and honestly a little pinkish-orangish. But despite the color, I wanted to wear it all day to at least get a feel for what it’s like.
No surprise, it’s very nice. I didn’t expect anything less from a brand name like Dior. It’s water-based so it goes on super light and smooth. The biggest surprise was that it blurred my pores quite a bit. I’ve never had that experience with other makeup or primers, even the products whose whole thing is that they blur pores. This makeup lasted all damn day. I got a late start, but I went to the grocery store, ran errands, went out for dinner and hung out until about 10 pm and it still looked nice and put together (and I didn’t use setting spray!).
There’s about 24 shades. The little squares on the Sephora website make it look like there’s only three dark shades, but the photo of the swatches seems like there’s a few more. But the issue is there are three arms of swatches pictured; two arms are light shades, one arm is medium to dark. I don’t understand what brands think. Especially a brand as huge as Dior. I have a feeling this is going to be a common theme among almost all the foundations I try over the next few days.
I’d like to see what my actual color looks like on, but I don’t think I’d spend $52 on this.
