Today’s post features a personally, very highly sought after product. As I am a complete makeup junkie when it comes to base products, I just knew sooner or later I was going to need it in my life and well, here we are. As you may or may not already know, the new Star foundation from Dior is one of their recent launches that has gathered quite a lot of hype online. Naturally, I had to know for myself why and what it was really all about.
Having only previously used the BB creme from Dior, my expectations were quite high and boy were they met! This foundation is absolutely stunning both in terms of product quality and appearance (well I mean duh, it’s Dior). Although having been marketed on their website as a luminous finish foundation, my initial impressions were that it was more towards the velvety/slightly matter side. But, having worn it without a setting powder throughout the day, it does get quite dewy with my oily/combination skin. Nonetheless, the foundation does a pretty good job of controlling the amounts of oil of my face with very few touch ups. Additionally, it is about a medium coverage however is completely buildable without getting cakey. If you are after the medium – buildable coverage the best way of applying it would be with a damp sponge however if you were looking for a more sheer, natural finish I enjoy using a buffing brush. Overall, this is a gorgeous foundation however my only complaint would be the price – $77AUD. There are a few foundations, like Nars Sheer Glow which give quite a similar finish and are a little cheaper however if you are in the market for a new high end foundation, go to your local Dior counter and ask to try this one you wont regret it!
What are your thoughts on this foundation? Have you found any others that are similar?
