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.
