Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation 0.5N

Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation 0.5N review swatch

I used to constantly look for the next better foundation. I haven't done that in a while because I feel like now I have a very nice variety of foundations that suit all my needs. Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation is one of them and I personally think this could be the best liquid foundation formula that I have ever experienced.

A little bit of side info - I purchased mine from Selfridges. I am subscribed to Selfridges+ service which allows an international shopper like myself to utilize unlimited express shipping with no minimum. The subscription fee is $55 per year. I initially started using this service specifically for the Suqqu beauty, but this is worthwhile since I have found a lot of brands are priced much more affordably on Selfridges than the U.S. retail price. This Dior foundation is a good example as it is only around $40 with no tax on Selfridges but the U.S. retail is $52 + tax. Plus, the Rakuten cashback on Selfridges is quite generous (7%). I think I will continue to use this service although I often get annoyed by the website (it is not exactly streamlined and the stock is always poor). 

Anyway, I suspect my great satisfaction with this foundation has quite a bit to do with the affordable price that I paid for, but I think this excellent foundation is still worth the U.S. retail (which, in fact, isn't bad at all since other couture brand foundations are around $60).

Correct me if I am mistaken, but the shade 0.5N isn't available in the U.S., either. Here, the color number jumps from 0N to 1N. It seems that recently in the European market, Dior has added more of fair shades since now I see 00, 0CR, 0W available as well. Rejoice, fair folks who like to wear neutral and yellow-based foundations! I myself will certainly check out these new shades in the future.

0.5N is a nice match for me but it is slightly darker than my own skin and sometimes I think I should have gotten 0N. It also has some peachy/beige undertones that tend to oxidize on me. Weirdly and luckily though, the color seems to self-adjust once I apply it on my face(!!!). It is one of the few foundations that looks better at the end of the day.

Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation is marketed as a foundation for "naturally glowing skin" (There is Forever Matte Foundation for a matte finish). You might assume it's thin and liquidy, but it's not. The consistency is more of gel-cream and there is a bit of tackiness to it. I find fingertip application is best for this foundation - it's quick and seamless. Sponge or foundation brush seems to deposit more pigment than I like. The coverage is versatile. One pump will provide a sheer-to-medium coverage but you can easily achieve full coverage if you add another coat. The finish is flawless and beautiful. There is a good amount of glow but it doesn't look oily. I usually set it with loose powder, but frankly, it looks prettiest if you don't. It seems very long-lasting even without setting with powder, which is pretty impressive for this type of foundation. It's lightly fragranced with a fresh floral which I don't mind.

Overall, I am very happy with it and will repurchase a lighter shade when I run out. Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation is available on Selfridges, Nordstrom, and other major retailers.

Thanks for being here. Have you tried Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation?
