Dior Forever Matte Foundation

Dior Forever Skin Glow 24 hour radiant perfection skin caring foundation 1oz/30ml $64 at Sephora.

As a staunch and unapologetic fan of Dior, I was excited to be able to try this foundation. It has some big shoes to fill.  I am a huge fan of both Estee Lauder Double Wear and Revlon Colorstay.  I noticed that both of those gave me a tired look, so I went to Sephora to find something new.  Full coverage is how I roll although I can live with buildable coverage.  This promises all of that and then some.

Offering 36 beautiful shades, you are sure to find your perfect match if you are on the fair side of the spectrum.  For those lovely darker tones this may not be the one for you.  The bottle is stunning, if basic.  I didn’t notice any particular smell to the foundation itself.  The formula is standard consistency and applies like a dream.  I use a sponge to apply my foundation, and I find that this formula offers excellent coverage, smooth finish and it doesn’t bring out my texture.

This is a matte formula. However, I found that I did get oily around the T zone after about 3 hours.  This formula lasted through a double shift at work and still looked perfect.  There was no real transfer of product throughout the day, and it didn’t make me break out or crease in my fine lines.

This is a never fail, holy grail, can’t believe it costs so much product.  Try it and see.
