A couture-inspired compact foundation that provides sun protection and a flawless, second-skin finish for all-day wear.
Today I am super excited to be reviewing a new face powder I have been trying out. The DiorSkin Forever Compact surprisingly works beautifully with my super dry skin. In fact this is the second face powder that has not aggravated my dry skin and I couldn’t be happier. This compact is simply beautiful. The deep ocean blue compact comes with a large mirror inside making it functional and great for on the go touch ups. The compact has a magnetic closure which adds a lot of security. It also comes with a blue velour pouch and a sponge applicator. Overall I really love the luxurious packaging, but the glossy finish on the compact tends to attract finger prints I would have preferred a matte compact, but it’s not a deal breaker for me.
Dior’s whole idea behind this foundation is to create and promote the look of a “second skin” finish and I personally think they did a great job creating a product that does just that. Since I have dry skin I don’t typically wear powder foundations but this foundation really creates a flawless finish to my skin without drying it out and without looking like I have loads of makeup on. I love the medium to full coverage it provides and the smooth formula. The powder is extremely finely milled. It’s very smooth to the touch and blends beautifully and if that wasn’t enough it also lasts all day on my skin. I don’t typically wear this powder on it’s own instead, I use it to set my liquid foundation and I am so happy with the results. The shade I use 040 Honey Beige which is a tad darker than my skin tone but it works great and doesn’t look too dark on me. I really love the coverage it provides. I don’t typically have issues with pimples but I do have a lot of redness on my face that this powder does an excellent job in concealing. I can’t speak on the lasting powder for oily skin but since I do have dry skin this powder lasts all day on me. I have heard from other people who have oily skin that this powder does a great job controlling oil throughout the day. I will be using this powder foundation a lot during the warmer months since it has SPF 25, which is a huge bonus.
