Dior Star Foundation Review

If you love a good selfie then this is the foundation for you! See why this is my new holy grail foundation!

I usually find most high end foundations quite over hyped and never live up to what they're made out to be but I was so impressed with this that I just had to share it on here!
Dior have brought out this illuminating 'star' foundation which also has SPF30 in it, what more could you want? It's been nicknamed the 'selfie' foundation, so naturally I had to pick it up because I'm known to love a good selfie (haha!).

This foundation has a very similar finish as the NARS sheer glow but it's easily buildable so it's suitable for pretty much anyone. It also seems to magically erase uneven skin tone and covers my blemishes perfectly without the use of any concealer (yes you read that right!). You're probably thinking that this foundation must be really cakey and thick if it covers without concealer but honestly it's far from it, it's super light and doesn't feel like I'm wearing any foundation whatsoever! It has a lot of pigment which means it covers well without having to use 10 pumps to get the right coverage, one pump of product covers my entire face which is enough coverage to get an even finish. 

When you're buying an expensive high end product you want the whole package to look like you've got your money's worth and the Dior foundation comes in a gorgeous glass bottle with the dark navy cap which I absolutely love, there are no faults to this product and even the pump gives you the perfect amount of product so that you're not left with a huge amount of foundation that's going to waste! As you can see I've chosen a colour that's darker than my natural skin tone (020 Light Beige) because I like to tan my body but not my face so then it's easy to match my foundation to my body colour. Either way this foundation matches easily and even if you pick a colour that's slightly darker, you won't end up looking orange because it'll blend well with your natural skin tone and give you a glow.

Just by looking at the swatch on the picture above shows you how illuminating this foundation is and how flattering it looks on the skin. It'll give you dewy skin without making you look greasy or oily and the texture stays the same no matter how many layers you put on! I personally love to use this foundation on top of the Benefits Porefessional and then apply the foundation with a beauty blender to get that airbrushed, flawless finish!
