Watch the video for my first impressions of the new Diorskin Star Foundation and see how it wore over 10 hours!
Text blurb about this foundation below the video 🙂

Makeup I’m wearing in this video
Aside from the foundation: Tom Ford Cream Color for Eyes in Spice (limited edition, sorry!), Makeup Studio Waterproof 3D Mascara in Extra Black (once I remembered to apply it!), Kevyn Aucoin Sculpting Powder in Medium, Stila Brow Pen in Medium & Tom Ford Lipstick in Nude Vanille. The powder that I used on my nose was Rouge Bunny Rouge Loose Powder (my favourite!).
Information about Diorskin Star Foundation
Release Date: September 2014, so any day now.
Price: 50 USD or 77 AUD.
Packaging: Glass bottle with a pump. 30ml or 1 Fluid Ounce.
Consistency: Moderately viscous, not particularly thin like Chanel Vitalumiere Aqua.
Fragrance: There is perfume in the ingredient list (which can be found at the end of this post); the scent is floral but not overpowering to my nose.
SPF: Factor of 30. I didn’t notice flashback but it wouldn’t be my first choice for flash photography as it wasn’t particularly flattering!
Shade: 020 is perhaps best suited to depth of ~NC25 with golden undertones. Keep in mind that I experienced oxidising within the first few hours of wear – this may differ depending on your skin but worth noting.
Best Application: I preferred the Beauty Blender over fingers as it offered a more skin-like finish.
Coverage: Medium plus – could be sheered out to a light coverage or easily layered for a full coverage.
Finish: Pretty stock standard satin, not matte and not dewy.
Longevity: One of the most long wearing foundations I’ve encountered; it resists migration/transfer and provides good oil control.
I’m very impressed by the longevity of the Star Foundation, my base was still perfectly intact at 10 hours! I also found the coverage to be very versatile and I’m pleased that this foundation didn’t accentuate the flakiness I had going on that day.
My only complaint: upon application, traces of foundation were very visible on my skin (even my boyfriend could see it and he’s a makeup noob). At the 6 hour mark, I felt as though the foundation had melted into a more skin-like finish but that’s a long time to wait! I’m eager to mix Star with Le Blanc de Chanel, I’ll report back if it improves the finish 🙂
Overall, I’d say the Diorskin Star Foundation is best suited to combination/oily skin types seeking medium to full coverage. I give it a 3 out of 5 stars.
