What it is: Dior Diorskin Nude Air Serum Foundation
What it claims: lightweight, luminous and hydrating finish, long lasting, sheer correction
My review: ✔ Very elegant packagaing. The bottle has a dropper, so you know your foundation stays clean. You have to shake it before applying, and press the top part while the bottle is still closed to get the product into the dropper. This is apparently to minimise contamination with the air.
✔ Gives a very BEAUTIFUL finish! It dries down as a powder, but doesn't result in a flat matte finish. It leaves my skin glowy, and though I wouldn't say it is full coverage, it's enough to cover my discolouration and yet still shows my natural freckles. Again, I use a beauty blender to achieve this finish. I use this foundation for special occassions, during which I would add concealer over it. I really do love that it looks very natural on me. It truly is like my skin but better. ✔ Like all Dior products, it smells like what rich women would wear. No joke, this scent is what I associate them with 😂 I'm pretty neutral about this, I don't think the smell lasts very long anyway.
❌ I break out if I wear this for a few consecutive days. This is partly why I only use it on special days. ❌ Settles in my laugh lines but not anywhere else. My laugh lines are pretty deep though. ❌ Not sure if it is hydrating as it claims. My skin doesn't feel a difference.
❌ It dries down very quickly as the liquid is super thin. I usually put a few drops on the back of my hand before dabbing with a beauty blender and applying it to my face, but if I'm taking my time the product dries quickly and sets on the back of my hand. I guess you can directly drop it onto your face, but that could be a little messy as the product is very runny. ❌ Speaking of how it's runny, a few times (maybe 25% of the time for me) the product may run down around the outside of the dropper as you're taking it out, so again prepare for a little mess.
🤔 I don't think I'll be needing to buy another anytime soon considering the slow rate I've been using it. It is pricey, but if I'm not brave enough to play with a different replacement then I would most probably go back to this.
