Dior Forever Foundation Review & Super Easy Warm Toned Glam Inspo!

If you’re a matte foundation lover like me you will love the Dior Forever Foundation! The formulation is non-oily and it comes in 28 shades. With a price tag of $50, it claims to provide medium-full coverage while also delivering even color correction. It is also supposed to last for 16 hours.

Does this foundations really do all that it claims to do? Here’s what think:

I like:

  • Matte – ness and longevity: This foundation stays matte through a full day
    • I haven’t worn it for more than 12 hours so I’m not sure if it lives up to the claim but it definitely passes the “12 hour” test. I think that it’s pretty rare anyways for someone to wear foundation for 16 hours.
    • My oils do not even peak through this foundation! If it does it is very slight.
  • Coverage: this is the most full coverage foundation that I have owned
    • I have dark marks on my chin from acne and this completely covers them up! I don’t need to go in with a concealer after using this.
  • Formulation: liquid – not too heavy
    • I like that this formulation is liquid and that it isn’t a sheer, runny type of liquid.
    • It doesn’t feel super thick and it’s easy to blend out or even layer if you wanted too.

I don’t like:

  • Shade range: too narrow for people of color
    • There were maybe 3 shades for people who are medium/dark tan.
    • I was matched to number 40 and I actually really dislike the shade. This foundation has a pink undertone and honestly looks very orange on my face. I like something that’s more golden

Overall: I would be completely in love with this foundation if I didn’t dislike the shade – it is an oily skinned girl’s dream come true!

Easy Warm Toned Glam


I use a bronzer in my crease (too faced chocolate soleil in medium deep) and then mix chopper and sin from urban decay on the lid. Smoke out the lower lash line a tad bit, throw on some black eyeliner, and a little inner corner highlight and that’s it for the eyes! Then I pair it with a coral-nude lip such as the HudaBeauty Liquid Matte in Trendsetter (my absolute fave) or MAC Cosmetics Taupe.


Have you tried anything from Dior’s Makeup or Skincare line? What’re your thoughts?

    Great review. I love this foundation but don’t trust the ‘shade matching’ process. The counter near me ‘matched’ me using their machine but it was too orange in natural light. Luckily I’d taken a sample home so when I actually bought it I went with my instinct and opted for the lightest shade they do and it’s perfect. Have you tried the Forever and Ever Wear primer? Works lovely with this xx

      Omg seriously! I don’t trust their shade matching either. I just get so intimidated to tell them I don’t like the shade because they are so adamant that’s the correct shade πŸ™ thank you for reading! I tried a lighter shade but it was too light for me :/ I got a sample of it and tried it and I loved it! They’re just so expensive πŸ™
      Thank you for reading ❀️❀️

        They are expensive so you’ve got to be happy with it. If they’re being adamant just be adamant back that you want 2 samples! The shade they recommend and one lighter! Lol. That’s what I do anyway πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚

    This is just too expensive for me. I am satisfied with Clinique and Wet & Wild.

      Indeed it is very expensive, is there a certain one from Clinique that you like? I’ve never tried theirs

        The lipcolors don t give enough color but I love their foundations especially the matte makeup. I also like their fat cheeky blush in pink.

    This foundation looks great on you and this is a great review! I totally agree the shade matching is always a nightmare, I just don’t think they can properly see the shade in the artificial light of stores! xx

    • Reply sayeedahsparkles April 5, 2017 at 5:10 pm

      Thank you, ugh you’re so right, it definitely is hard to see it in store lighting. I can never match myself in sephora’s lighting. Thank you for reading! ❀️
