Dior Forever Undercover Foundation-- Review
I try to be sensible and not to buy every single foundation available on the market but every now and then I fancy trying something new. Seeing as many brands brought out new foundations lately, Nars, Bobbi Brown, Huda Beauty, Fenty, to mention just a few, I've decided to try one of them and the Dior Forever Undercover 24H Full Coverage Foundation caught my attention the most. I love full coverage foundations and I really enjoyed a Dior foundation in the past so the purchase was made.
I bought the foundation only a week ago but I have worn it 5 times for a minimum of 8 hours a day so I think I have a pretty good opinion on it already and I'm excited to talk about it on the blog, so why wait? :)
📦Packaging - The foundation comes in a plastic squeezy bottle with nozzle kind of dispenser which makes it practical as you can really control the amount of product being used and it's travel friendly. The bottle contains 40ml of product which is 10ml more then usually you get at the same price point as other Dior foundations so that's a bonus.
🎨Shades - There are 26 shades available but 9 of them, which include the darkest shades, are exclusive to Dior website which is quite not fair to be honest.
I picked shade 020 Light Beige which was a really good match for my skin tone when I had the Dior Star foundation couple of years back but I wish I went for 021 Linen which is slightly warmer toned and it would match me better but I don't have too much issue to make the shade 020 work for me.
💧Formula & Scent – The formula is water based and kind of liquid-y for the high coverage it promises. It has subtle scent, characteristic to Dior foundations, which dissipates pretty quickly once the foundation is applied to the skin, but it might be a concern for people with very sensitive skin.
🖌Application tool - I find the foundation easy to blend into the skin, whether you use beauty sponge, brush or your fingers.
The beauty blender soaks up quite a bit of products so you need much more foundation to achieve the same coverage as you would while using a brush. Surprisingly I really like how the foundation looks on my skin when I use my fingers to apply it, it melts right into my skin becoming almost undetectable and that way it looks the most blurring on my skin.
On the photos above I used brush to apply it and my largest pores weren't as smoothed out as if I had used my fingers.
😊Coverage & Finish - The finish is semi-matte, very natural and skin-like. Large pores are smoothed over, I didn't notice any major clinging to dry patches, it does settle lightly in my smile lines and forehead wrinkles but it doesn't exaggerate them.
I love the finish of the foundation, it makes my skin look healthy without being too dewy, it gives me good coverage but it feels absolutely weightless and it doesn't look heavy or cakey.
⏰Longevity - I wore it for 12 hours a day and I had only a very little signs of wearing it off around my nose after about 8 hours of wear. Around the 12th hour mark I did noticed a bit of separating on my nose and chin but the rest of my face looked perfect.
Overall, I'm really liking the new Dior Forever Undercover Foundation, it's still early days but it might be becoming one of my favourite foundations.
