NEW Diorskin Forever perfect complexion foundation + forever & ever wear primer | Review

Dior doesn't release new foundations often so when it does happen it's a big deal. Fortunately I had the perfect excuse to try the new products because I literally just ran out of my primer and my holy grail base - the Estee Lauder Double Wear (reviewed here). 

When it comes to the base, you guys know I'm EXTREMELY picky and hard to please. I have dehydrated combination skin and my colour is quite hard to match so the two factors mixed together make me a tough customer to please. I have been eyeing the Star foundation but when the lovely lady at the Dior counter told me she was already selling the re-release of the Forever foundation, with a brand new primer to go with it, I was pretty much sold. 

I have been testing both products for three days straight, wearing them on average 12 hours a day so I'm quite confident I'll be able to provide an informative review. Keep in mind we all have different types of skin so of course the results may differ from one person to the other.





When I first spotted the primer I tested it on my hand and I honestly didn't think it was going to do much for me. I'm used to heavy-duty silcon-based primers that cover up my pores and smooth my complexion. This number by Dior felt too light and liquid. 

Well, I was wrong. As much as it's important to smooth the skin, it's also essential to let it breathe and look natural so this Forever and Ever Wear primer does exactly that. Its holding polymer optimizes the foundation's adherence and, with each application, the Poreless Effect skincare ingredient helps refine the skin's texture. Of course it also helps the foundation stay on all day in the best shape possible. 

What makes it worth the price tag is the the skincare properties that target pore-related issues such as dryness, dilatation and slackening. I can't say for certain after only testing it a few days BUT I do actually see an improvement with the pores on my nose that are usually the most visible ones. They look smaller and less clogged. 

The formula is oil free so perfect even for the oiliest complexions. My t-zone stayed matte most of the day and it just started showing some 'glow' (it did't look greasy) by the evening which I was impressed with. 



DIORKSIN FOREVER FOUNDATION 

 The Forever foundation has been relaunched after being one of the most popular bases not just for Dior but in the general High End market. The new formula has even longer lasting properties whilst also brightening the skin. 

The finish is matte and soft focus which makes me look, dare I say it, flawless. It literally tricked me into thinking my skin is THAT good naturally. All my redness, the bumps, the scarring disappear but it still shows your skin. The thing I love most about this foundation is the pigmentation, which makes it possible to wear a thin layer that gives very decent coverage. The other positive thing is that you can build it up. I tried up to three layers for a night out and my skin STILL looked natural and not cakey. I think the secret behind it is also the fact that I've been using the primer which makes these two products a killer combination! 

The foundation can be applied with a brush but they do suggest a sponge. Dior released their own one actually, which is white and different from the original Backstage Blender fluid that many weren't impressed with. I did stick to my Real Techniques gem for now though, because I like budgeting whenever I can. 

May I also add an AMEN for the pump because I'm sick and tired of spending money on glass bottles that over spill the product and make me waste half of its content. 


The Verdict: This could be my new all time favourite foundation. I'm extremely pleased with the wear and the way it looks. Both products are the bomb and if you're in the market for a flawless new base then I definitely couldn't recommend both enough.

  7. Holy moly, these two sound (and look) great together! The primer sounds truly wonderful. I'm used to the heavy-duty primers as well, but this sounds like it would make a nice change! Also, that foundation. Wow. It helps that it's beautifully packaged, too.

  8. I used to work at a benefit counter near a Dior counter and I always wondered what their stuff was like, but I do wonder whether it is worth the price tag...

  21. Thank you for this! I've been desperately trying to find as many reviews as possible on this. How does this compare to double wear in longevity and oil control? Is it better or the same?

  28. The finish is quite beautiful!

    I'm so bad a trying new foundations, and I had the Dior Star foundation on my list, but I like the sound of this one more. I would struggle with a sponge but that's another thing I ought to give a go.

    A good primer really is a game changer. I used to be so determined to try every matte primer, but lately I rather like the dewy look.

  30. Oooh this looks and sounds fabulous, I'm picky with foundations too and generally stick to what I know which right now is the EsteƩ Lauder double wear and hearing that this "was" your all time fave makes me want to try this from Dior now!! I'll have to wait until my birthday though but I guess that gives me time to save! Wonderful review!

  34. The foundation looks great on you :) I will have to keep my eyes out for the duo as sometimes it takes ages (or never) for products to come to Australia. It definitely looks like they are both worth trying!
