Hello lovely, today we’re going to talk about Dior’s Star Studio foundation, and believe me…it’s been a long time coming!
No, really. It has been a long time coming. Why, you ask? Because my Sephora has been keeping Dior’s Star foundation away from me for ages. Every time I took a trip to Sephora, they were out of my shade (which is 22 by the way), and being too anxious to get it in person, I was too much of a slacker to put in the effort and order online. (Plus, online shopping at Sephora tends to get me into trouble.)
Low and behold, after the fourth failed trip to Sephora – I walked to the opposite end of the mall and snagged this at Nordstrom. Lesson learned? Always, ALWAYS try Nordstrom first – unless it’s a VIB Sale. (Naturally.)
Shopping challenges aside, I have to say – Dior‘s done a bang up job with their Star foundation. One fortune of Sephora being out of stock so frequently was getting to go through two samples before finally sealing the deal with a purchase – and it was love. The finish has a lovely, natural glow…leaving your skin looking plush and healthy, that’s beautiful as an everyday look or built up for a night out. Dior doesn’t declare this foundation to ‘long-wearing’, but if you are looking for something that can last you through the day without a million touch-ups, I’m happy to report this one does a pretty swell job.
The first time I used this I was having a headshot taken with flash photography, and I was a bit paranoid about the SPF and ‘illuminating’ promise, although the salesgirl talked me into it after swearing it wouldn’t give me trouble. I took a chance, wearing this in hopes of looking lovely at a daytime function – and by golly, she was right. It photographs beautifully and makes me feel really ‘put together’ – even if I only threw this on with a 5 minute makeup look.
Another perk is the lightness of Dior’s Star foundation on your skin. It sits nicely atop your skin, without feeling heavy or getting ‘gunky’. Not that I expected a Dior foundation to get ‘gunky’, but you never know!
In fact, this was my very first time trying a foundation from Dior, and I’m quite impressed! As it’s summer now, I haven’t been wearing this on days where I’ll be outside most of the day, because I’m not sold on it being entirely sweatproof – but in non-humid conditions, you’ll be pleased with it.
Thank you for reading and please share if you’ve tried this foundation yet!
