Diorskin Nude: Not just for normal-to-dry skins, y’know…

By Lynnie | May 13 2009 | 27 Comments

When Kirstie posted about Dior’s latest foundation offering away back in February, I remember thinking “God, that sounds so nice. It’d never stay put on me, though.” That didn’t stop me going a-begging for a sample of Diorskin Nude, naturally, and I was so impressed with it that I went off and shelled out the fairly massive €43 asking price for a bottle when my freebie ran out.

Coverage is light-to-medium, comparable I think to something like Armani’s Luminous Silk Foundation, but is buildable and, unlike LSF, very blendable. Diorskin Nude gives a radiant and dewy, but not shiny, natural finish, which usually means my combo-to-oily skin can kiss a foundation bye-bye by lunchtime as it slips and melts right off the fisog. This one, though, is staying put from early morning to evening, and I can’t quite believe my luck that a foundation which makes me look so good – glowy with a superbly even complexion, if I do say so myself - actually suits my skin.

Man, I love it when a plan comes together!

    I got the powder version of this, and finding it great for my combo skin. Light-to-medium coverage as well, with a nice glowy finish.

    ya wanna hear something REALLY annoying

    £21 in London………

  • Lynnie Lynnie says:

    Presume that’s for the powder, Teddie? Annoying is right, though – RRP for the fluid in the UK is £26.50 and friend of mine picked some up in Debenhams in Newry a while back… it came through as €30 on her Visa.

    I was very nearly sick.

    I love this! It really does stay on my combination skin! Does anyone know if Edinburgh airport stock it? I’m over for the w/e! Maybe i’m better to get it in a dept store over there?

  • Lis says:

    It sounds great-does anyone know if its oil-free???

  • LouLaBelles says:

    Im currently using Mac- Studio Sculpt and I have never come across worse foundation. It just slides off.
    Might have a look at this Dior, I looked at it before and dunno why I didnt go for it!
    Hate foundation shopping!

  • daisy says:

    I really like it too but I think €43 is a bit steep its €12 more expensive than my other fave mac studio fix fluid! I also think I got the wrong shade in debenhams looked fine in the bad lighting in the shop but I knew in my heart 030 sounded very dark for my pale skin! Might get my mum to get me a lighter shade in duty free when she’s off on hol’s in a few weeks!

    Oh no, can I feel my monogamous relationship with Luminous Silk hitting a rough patch? ;)

  • dweedles says:

    I have 2 smashbox foundations (you would think I’d know better) and find that the coverage is so light that it seems I don’t have any foundation on at all, but not in a good way. Has anyone else found this. I find that I’m lashing it on to no good effect. I think I might try this new Dior one.
