Diorskin Forever Undercover Foundation - Does it really last 24 hours?

As a member of the Glamour Beauty Club, I was invited to give a sample of Dior's Diorskin Forever Undercover Foundation a whirl. Let me just first say upfront that this isn't a sponsored post, and the sample I received was purely to try out, with no expectation of me heading to my blog to write about it. I've chosen to feature this foundation on my blog because I love high-coverage products, and want to share it with you all.

Though I'm fake tanning until the sun comes back to the UK (roll on summer!) I chose to try shade 010 Ivory. I always find it so hard to colour match foundations online, so I figured if I went for the lightest shade even if it's too light I can make it work as a concealer, or for contouring.

It actually turned out that Ivory was the perfect shade for me when it arrived, something I was surprised about because I don't consider myself to be really pale at all and I'm never usually the lightest shade. Perhaps that's something for everyone else to consider if they go to purchase this product. There are 26 different shades though, which is okay versatility wise, but maybe doesn't go light enough. A lot of people are calling brands to follow in the steps of Fenty Beauty, and being more inclusive to all skin tones, which I definitely support.

The foundation claims it offers three things: "Full coverage, 24 hour wear and second-skin matte finish." All very bold statements, I put my tester to the test!

The first thing I noticed was how little you needed to get a full face of makeup, the tester tube actually lasted me three days! The foundation just keeps blending when you apply it, and feels smooth and lightweight, despite it being full coverage. I really liked this about the product, because it can be really off putting to feel like your skin is caked in goop. This also meant it settled on the skin quickly, and I had no problems putting bronzer on top.

It definitely does have a matte finish when first applied, so I felt I didn't need to set it with powder, but by midday I did have a little sheen on the oilier areas of my face. In terms of longevity, if you're not rushing around and are staying indoors, I can believe this foundation would last up to 24 hours. If you're walking in British weather, or being a busy bee up and down the stairs, you will notice this foundation start to disappear in some areas.

One of the best things about this foundation though, is that Dior claim it to be non-transferable. Have you ever been on the phone and ended the call only to find your foundation on the screen? Well there's none of that with this. I'm sure it's dependant on how much you apply, but I liked it's stay-put longevity.

I think this foundation would be a must-have for a night out or special occasion, applied with primer and set with powder to ensure its lasting power. I'd probably purchase this for myself, but might wait until Autumn, as I think it might be a little too heavy for summer when I like to strip my makeup back a little. Overall though, it's a fantastic foundation if you like full-coverage, so why not get yourself to a Dior makeup counter and get a sample to try out for yourself!

Until next time..
