Diorskin Forever Undercover 24 hour wear full coverage fresh weightless foundation (CAD $64) is a new launch from the house of Dior. In this era of serial selfies, this high pigment water-based foundation combines maximum complexion control with a natural, true to life aspect for a no-filter, life proof finish that lasts 24 hours.
“Incorporated in a very fluid texture, the high concentration of pigments ensures perfect blemish correction. What is very new for such high coverage products is that you don’t feel or see it. The finish is fresh and matte enough so that you don’t need powder.” says Peter Philips, Creative and Image Director for Dior Make-up describing his perception of this neo-camouflage.
In the entire range of foundations, Diorskin Forever Undercover contains the highest level of pigments, almost twice that of the original fluid foundation. To avoid a mask effect, the mineral pigments are given a very specific coating that merges with skin providing an imperceptible finish.
I have tested and used this foundation for a few days already and impressed by the coverage, shade match, longevity, and texture. The packaging of the foundation as you see is in a sturdy plastic bottle with a dropper and the desired quantity comes out easily. Just shake and open the bottle, pour it on the back of your hand or put drops directly onto the face and start blending. I risked and used this for the first time for a traditional Indian Wedding hoping to get the full coverage that looks natural and luminous, something that stays on all day. And yes it did a great job. After that, I have used it few times to work.
The formula is water-based and thus fluid consistency which glides and blends easily into the skin. It blends in well with hands but I do prefer a brush for even coverage. Even the beauty blender will give a nice coverage. It feels very light on the face, like no makeup but still, you see that the coverage is amazing. It did not emphasize my pores or problem areas. The finish is semi-matte which is luminous yet natural. Another great thing about this is the staying time, it stayed on really well for over 12 hours for which I have tested. I did not notice any creasing or did not touch up during the day.
Diorskin Forever Undercover foundation is available in 26 shades from the lightest to the darkest which is a great thing. For my medium tan with golden undertones, I am shade 040 or 041 depending on the weather. Mixing both also does a good job for my skin tone. I have swatched both 040 and 041 in this post if you are interested to check my review about the Diorskin Forever Perfect Makeup Everlasting Wear Pore Refining Effect with SPF 35, I have linked it here. Diorskin Forever Undercover foundation is available at Sephora, Hudson’s Bay, BeautyBoutique by Shoppers Drug Mart and all Dior retailers.
