So last year, I'd been eyeing up the Dior Forever foundation for months.  After seeing so much hype around it and reading nothing but positive reviews, I finally took the plunge and purchased my first Dior foundation at Manchester airport which cost me £26.00 *duty free price* it's normally £32.00 so I got myself a pretty decent bargain.  The Dior ladies at the counter were lovely and not pushy (I hate pushy sales!)... the lady matched me to a shade 020 but because I was going to Mexico I'd be getting a tan and I usually wear fake tan so I opted for the next shade up 030.

My thoughts?  Well the packaging is very classy and it looks fabulous on my dressing table which is always a plus...even though it's glass, I make sure I keep it safe so it doesn't fall and smash.  It would be more safe if the packaging was plastic but I guess it wouldn't look as luxurious.  The pump dispenser dispenses the perfect amount of product, it's hygienic and easy to use... I normally use 2 pumps for the full face and even have a bit left over to blend onto my neck area.

I tried the foundation for the first time on my holiday in Mexico and was hoping it would last well in the heat with me having quite oily skin, most foundations tend to slide right off my skin even with a good primer.  I applied it using a brush and blended the rest of it in with my damp Beauty Blender.  I was already impressed with how it felt and looked on my skin, throughout the night it was still perfect and made me look flawless without being too cakey looking.  I have a few freckles on my nose area and you could still see the freckles slightly but it covered any imperfections quite well, I love how natural the foundation looks but still gives you the coverage where needed.  It's definitely a medium coverage which is build-able to a more fuller coverage so you could use this for both day and evening, it's also extremely lightweight so you feel like you have nothing on.  My pet hate with foundations is that dreaded cakey look, some girls love it but I think it looks awful and too fake... obviously I love makeup but covering your skin with layers and layers of foundation just isn't a good look (in reality)... I like my skin to feel like it's got nothing on yet still covers my imperfections but still looks natural if that makes sense?

I've been using this ever since I bought it and fall in love with it more everyday.  I would highly recommend this foundation especially for those with a more oily/combo complexion as it stays matte all day when set with a powder.  

Have you tried this?
