Dior Forever Extreme Wear Foundation Review
I decided that I wanted to try this foundation after I had read a few good reviews on various other blogs. I finally got round to buying it after having a lot of trouble trying to actually speak to a Dior girl. (I wrote about my experience at a couple of Dior counters in a previous post).
Anyway, I eventually got to speak to someone who actually works for Dior, she told me that I would be shade 020 and squeezed a small amout on to the back of my hand. (As I do makeovers on customers at work, I know you have to test colour shades on your jaw line as your hands are a completely different colour to your face).
I applied a bit to my jaw line and asked her opinion. She informed me that this was definately the lightest shade so would be the best for me. I asked her several times if it was the lightest, as thats what I normally am.
After purchasing the 020 on her recommendation, I did my make up the following morning and this was the outcome:
Please excuse this TERRIBLE picture, I only took it to show what an awful colour match it was, hence the reason I look just a tiny bit annoyed!! Look at my face and then look at my body!!
I drove straight to Debenhams to complain and was told i'd need to return it to the store i got it from. So I had to wait another couple of days and finally i got my correct shade, 010.
Despite my huge rant, it is a fab foundation!!
This is what I normally look like wearing foundation!!
It is described as an extreme wear flawless makeup, made with nano stretch technology which acts accordingly under different extreme environments.
After using this for about a week now, I can honestly say it is an amazing foundation.
As my skin is oily, I need a foundation that is going to stay put and not slide off my face halfway through the day. This is very long lasting, when I come home from work, it still looks the same as it did first thing that morning. This is great as I don't need to touch up my make up throughout the day!!
It is waterproof and has an Spf 25 which is always an added bonus!!
It gives a good coverage which I like and its not too heavy. I apply my Clinique gentle light powder over the top of this, just to set it and it never looks cakey, yay!!
I would definately recommend this to anyone with oily skin or anyone looking for a long lasting foundation. As long as you get the correct colour, you can't not fall in love with this foundation!!
Does anyone else love this product?! x x
