Diorskin Forever, Skin-Perfecting Foundation - A New Base Favourite?

I'm not going to waste time beating around the bush with this one, the Diorskin Forever Foundation is the absolute dog's dangles. 

I won't lie, I have a myriad of foundations designed to make me look like I've been dipped into a vat of Vaseline and sprinkled with morning dew, because 'wet' is the look I typically swing for, apparently. And that's all well and good, except for when it's cracking flags outside and my entire face ends up on my chin before I've had time to complete one full scroll of my Instagram feed. 

So, despite the fact that my skin is thirstier than a You Tuber with a Morphe code, I've been trying to incorporate more matte base products into my makeup routine.  

Diorskin Forever Skin-Perfecting Foundation Review - A New Base Favourite?

The Diorskin Forever Foundation is a skin-perfecting, 'poreless effect' foundation that claims to refine the skin's texture and provide a long-lasting, luminous matte finish for up to 16 hours. Now, I don't know who these, '16 hour, foundation-wearing folk' are, but I find that it holds up really well on my skin throughout the day. 

It's a medium to full coverage foundation, depending on how much you build it up. I prefer to have my natural skin, freckles and all, still visible when I apply my base so I don't go in too heavy-handed. It smooths on effortlessly and blends seamlessly into the skin to give a truly flawless, airbrushed finish - there are numerous 'skin-perfecting' products on the market that claim to give you an even complexion; however Dior really deliver here. 

It's no BB cream, but despite its fuller coverage, the Diorskin Forever Foundation is still relatively lightweight. It doesn't feel thick or sit heavy on the skin and is actually really comfortable to wear. #SayNoToTheCakeFace. 

For colour reference, I wear the shade 020 - Light Beige and I find that this foundation doesn't oxidise and change colour over time, so what you see is what you get. 

So onto the finish, and probably one of the biggest reasons I love this foundation so much. It gives off a radiance that is lacking with many of the other matte foundations I've tried, whilst maintaining a natural-looking, skin-like matte finish. Think Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk, but better. It doesn't turn into an oil slick after a couple of hours wear, nor cling to any drier patches that I inevitably have - thank you air conditioning! I've received a tonne of compliments on my skin whilst wearing this foundation, and if that's not testament to how flippin' fab this product is, then I really don't know what else to tell you!
