Dior Diorskin Nude Foundation in 040 Honey Beige

This is an old foundation which I don’t use as often anymore, I’ve used up most of it. The Diorskin Nude foundation is a hydrating foundation meant to give a dewy natural look. Exactly my kind of foundation, sheer and light.

Diorskin Nude Foundation, rightly as the name suggests is meant to give your skin a natural glow and look. I use the shade Honey Beige 040. I’d say this foundation is similar to Mac Face & Body or Chanel Aqua Lumiere. The shade is a tinge darker than my skintone but in summers when I’m a bit tanned, it’s a perfect match.

The foundation is a bit runny and you always need to shake it up well before using. It’s sheer but buildable in terms of coverage and although it can even out your skintone, it won’t be able to mask blemishes and such.

It’s light in texture, so it’s easy to apply with your fingers too. I generally use a stippling brush to dot it around my face and then just blend  in circles.

It gives a really natural kind of finish and keeps my skin from drying out. It’s not as dewy as Nars Sheer Glow but not matte either.

This also has SPF 10 which makes it ideal for daywear. For night or when flash phototography is involved, I wouldn’t necessarily wear this. I don’t see a noticeable whitecast but I don’t like to take any chances! This isn’t the most long wearing but typically will last 6-7 hours.

I love the packaging, it looks so elegant and I love that this comes with a pump. However, the pump does get messy overtime so you need to keep it clean after every use. You get 30ml of product for $48. Despite the price, this will last you a very long time because you need a very small amount.

Diorskin Nude has a new formula now which has SPF 15 and is lighter. So you will find the newer ones in the market.

    Love that it has a pump! I think I’d need more coverage so I’d prob pair it with concealer
