Dior Star AKA The Foundation of Dreams

I've mentioned Dior Star foundation* briefly in the past but I think its time for a dedicated blog post. Dior Star is a fairly under hyped foundation in the beauty world and I'd go as far as saying its an underrated gem. 

This is my first step into the world of Dior foundation. I'm a fan of Dior beauty in general so I had high hopes for this product and I haven't been disappointed. Housed in a glass bottle with pump, Dior Star has light to medium coverage with a 'my skin but better' finish. I've seen some reviews say that it has a dewy finish and I disagree. I'd say its somewhere middle of the road - it leaves skin looking healthy and radiant. What makes it stand out from the crowd is the texture and finish. I absolutely love that it feels light on the skin and it has good coverage. You do need to use concealer for any blemishes or redness but I find it helps to smooth pores. I use the lightest shade which does look a little dark in the bottle but once blended into the skin, its perfectly fine for my porcelain skin tone. 

This would be my holy grail base if it wasn't for one flaw - the oil control. Having a very oily t-zone, this foundation needs blotting every few hours. If you've got very oily skin, you might want to give it a miss but for normal/slightly dry and combination its perfect. Despite this, I still highly rate it as a brilliant base and if you're searching for a high end foundation then its highly recommended!There currently 20% off at Escentual here

Have you tried any Dior foundations?


  1. this packaging looks flawless, its a shame it wouldn't sit well with my oily skin!

  2. I found this foundation went so patchy on my dry skin! I loved how it was light and when I first applied it is was lovely but no matter how hard I try or different applications, it goes patchy, oxidises and my face seems to absorb it :(

  3. It looks gorgeous but i don't think it would work for me as i am very oily and prefer fuller coverage x

  4. Heard fab reviews about this. Wonder if I could get a sample from the counter x

  5. I'm a Nars Sheer Glow fan myself but i have heard good things about this foundation. Shame the oil control isn's so good, whilst I don't have very oily skin when you work in an office all day the varying temperatures can cause havoc with your skin so i prefer fairly long lasting base. The finish does sound great though. xx

  6. Ohh it sounds amazing! xx

  7. Cool post! I am always looking out for new foundations and skin correctors as nothing seems to work for me. I can't wait to try this one!

  8. It's so good that it has a pump because way too many glass bottled foundations require you to just tip them out!

  9. This sounds like such an amazing product, it's such a shame about the oil-control factor though!


  10. The oil control is a problem for me as I have extremely oily skin :( such a shame

  11. This sounds lovely, I really want to try some more high end foundations (:

  12. I absolutely love this foundation! I have a little sample and am desperately trying to make it last before I have to buy the full sized! xx


  13. I tried a couple of Dior foundations and this one as well, thanks to a sample I've been given at the counter. It looked nice, was easy to apply and felt really lightweight on the skin. But to be honest, I've not been impressed and still prefer other brands. The color match is very very good and the packaging is nice, but whenever they make a glass bottle I feel like I'm paying more for the packaging than for the content...and it's not one to bring with you when you're out of home...

  14. I've never tried a dior foundation but this sounds so nice. x

  15. I've never tried any Dior makeup products before, although i'm always tempted!

  17. I currently have this foundation and love the initial finish, but find it oxidizes on me. Being very fair, shade range is always a bit difficult anyway. Did you have this issue?

  18. Lovely post! I have actually never delved into the world of Dior, but perhaps I should. Maybe not with this foundation, as I prefer full coverage!xx
