The new Dior Diorskin Nude Air Serum Foundation is the talk of the town, watch me try it for the first time and see how it looks after 14 hours! I had a good laugh in this video, hope you enjoy it too :)
PS: I’m between an NC20 and NC25 right now, for reference.

Insane list because I’m insane.
Packaging – Glass bottle, 1 fl.ounce
Price – 53USD or 79AUD
Consistency – Very runny, similar to that of Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua
Colour range – 8 shades in the US, I mixed 010 and 020 to achieve a decent shade match for my NC20-25 skin
Coverage – Anything from ultra sheer to solid medium coverage
Buildable? – Yes, it builds well to a medium coverage without pilling or caking
Finish – Demi matte, so somewhere between a true matte and a satin finish
Tacky or dry – Without an emollient moisturiser and MAC Fix+, it settles to a non-tacky finish
Fragrance – STRONG! Much floral
Application ease – Super easy and quick, one must blend rather quickly but it doesn’t streak
Separation – I didn’t notice any separation, even after 14 hours
Pore Emphasis – Wasn’t kind to the pores on my nose
Emphasis on dry areas – I wasn’t terribly flaky on the day but yes, I imagine this would pick up on dry patches
Flashback test – Minor flashback on a DSLR camera, major flashback on iPhone camera (although even the best of foundations don’t fare well in phone flash scenarios)
Transfer – It does transfer without much encouragement, take note if you are a face toucher
Oxidise – None, from what I could tell
Longevity – Brilliant. Very little fading or sheen after 14 hours.
Settling – It did settle somewhat around my nose and laugh lines, easily remedied with powder
Nail Polish I’m wearing in this video
