REVIEW // Dior Makeover Workshop & Diorskin Star Foundation

Hello hello!

So last weekend I went to a Dior workshop in Parkson Pavilion Mall KL. It was free of charge and you get to have a Dior Star makeover plus a 1 on 1 session with Dior Makeup Artist. Well, the MUA that did my makeover was Zaidi Zain, he was very friendly and informative on explaining to me how to do a proper skincare routine and makeup application. You can ask him to do a specific look or just tell him to do whatever look he feels suitable, but I chose for a subtle smokey eye look cause smokey eye is the one thing I just can’t master! Ugh.

Alright, so that was that. Now let’s get into the review..

Dior Diorskin Star Fluid Foundation

Dior Diorskin Star Fluid Foundation – Picture Courtesy of Dior.com


What They Say :

♥ A lightweight foundation with Broad Spectrum SPF 30 that brightens, evens skin tone, and reduces the appearance of dark spots.

♥ Inspired by the professional illuminating techniques and expertise of its makeup artists, Dior invents Diorskin Star, its 1st brightening foundation: a weightless fluid capable of recreating the spectacular and perfecting light of Dior’s studios.

♥ The complexion is instantly more luminous and visibly more even. A new generation of hollow silica beads captures and diffuses light in a correcting halo with no shine. At the same time, colour-filter pigments neutralize colour imbalances to recreate the perfect light.

♥ The complexion is purified and more dazzling. Anti-“light-trap” skincare ingredients help reduce the appearance of dark areas, pigment spots and redness.


What I Say :

♥ The foundation is quite lightweight, it is creamy and not watery at all, it’s not runny when I pump it on to the back of my hand. The pump is efficient, doesn’t dispense too much of the product. And it’s good because I can control how much pumps I need to cover my face with.

♥ It evens out my skin tone and doesn’t look like mask cause I still can see the small mole on my cheeks. But it wasn’t able to cover my acute dark circle 😦

♥ Right after I applied the foundation, I can say that my skin looks glowy but not oily.

♥ It doesn’t oxidize but it will slowly adapt to my natural skin color so it looks more natural and flawless.

♥ After done all my makeup, I totally love the Dior Star Foundation. It made my skin looked flawless and glowing.

♥ I layered this twice and it doesn’t look cakey at all. So with this foundation, I can achieve medium to full coverage. And it totally feels smooth like skin, although when I first applied it, it feels a bit tacky.

♥ This foundation stays put for at least 8-10 hours on me until I feel the need to blot it.

♥ The Dior Star has more yellow tones compared to the other 3 foundations

♥ A precise match for my skin

♥ Stays true to its color while auto-adjust itself to match my skintone


 

Likes :

♥ Luxurious packaging. The cap has a ‘CD’ embossing that makes it look more luxe,

♥ Pump bottle that dispenses small amount of product, efficient enough for me so I won’t end up with too much product on to my hand


Dislikes :

♥ It dries quite fast on my skin although it’s still blendable

♥ Has a slightly thick creamy consistency (if that makes sense)


Other Info :

♥ Price : Rm 165

♥ Availability : All Dior Counters in Parkson, Isetan, Robinsons, Metrojaya and Sephora
