Dior Diorskin Forever Perfect Makeup Fluid Foundation in 010 Ivory, 020 Light Beige, 030 Medium Beige

If you’re looking for a matte that’s not flat and a solution to enlarged pores, look no further than three of Dior’s newest beauty innovations: Diorskin Forever Perfect Makeup, Diorskin Forever & Ever Primer Base and the Dior Backstage Blender Sponge.

Dior Diorskin Forever and Ever Primer Base 001 review

Start with a thin layer of the Diorskin Forever & Ever Wear Primer Base ($55 CAD, $45 USD). It has SPF20 so your skin will be protected from harmful UV rays, and it lays down a perfectly smooth base to hold your makeup in place. This is a Universal shade, with a light milky pink tint that brightens the skin and gives it a soft-focus veil.

Dior Backstage Blender Sponge

Before I get into the glorious Diorskin foundation, I don’t want to overlook Dior’s new Blender Sponge ($20 CAD/USD). It was inspired by the techniques of Dior’s Backstage experts and is supposed to mimic “the hand of a backstage makeup artist”.

This egg-shaped sponge with a beveled side is made with high-density material so the fluid foundation sits on top of the sponge ready for application.

How to use:

  • Use the flat side to spread and blend liquid foundation.
  • Use the rounded side to build coverage and optimize coverage (use dabbing motions).
  • Use the tip is any corners or hollows such as around the nose or the lips.

VERSUS THE BEAUTYBLENDER: This is actually a completely different concept, although it looks the same. You don’t wet the Dior sponge, which can sometimes dilute the formulation. Dior’s helps deliver an even, matte finish in medium-to-full coverage. BeautyBlender is great if you want a dewier tint vs. a full coverage matte.

Dior Diorskin Forever Perfect Makeup Fluid Foundation SPF35 010 Ivory 020 Light Beige 030 Medium Beige review

Dior’s Diorskin Forever Perfect Makeup fluid foundation ($62 CAD, $50 USD) is pretty much just that… perfect. It boasts everlasting wear (up to 16 hours) and takes skin perfection and a matte finish to next level. It’s not oily and as it dries down to the matte finish, it feels like it’s melting into the skin.

The finish is more of a very natural, flexible velvet matte. It doesn’t look like a mask on your face and it doesn’t feel tight on the skin. (And it has SPF35!)

The secret is in the two “Wear-Lock” polymers. The acrylic polymer sets the makeup into place and the hydrating polymer adds flexibility.

I let the swatches dry down for a minute or two and you can see how matte they set. These aren’t too orange and the 010 Ivory is almost a direct match for N15 skintone (in between NW and NC 15 MAC).

Dior Diorskin Forever Perfect Makeup Fluid Foundation SPF35 review fair skin

I didn’t retouch anything in this photo at all. You can see my usually enlarged pores around my nose are almost non-existent. My skintone is even, my redness concealed and my skin did not get flaky or shiny for the entire day! I have no powder over top and just a bit of Dior blush on my cheeks.

Just a reminder, I’m 38. If a makeup can make my skin look this flawless, I think it will make you all look flawless too!

The Dior Diorskin Forever Perfect Makeup comes in 16 shades and is available now at all Dior counters. The primer base and sponge are a nice complement to the foundation, the primer being one of my new faves, but I urge you to try the foundation above all else!

  • Ah, love the finish of this! Looks flawless, but still natural. This foundation is completely up my alley- will have to grab a sample at Sephora 🙂

  • Girl, this looks flawless on you. Seeeriously love it. I’m a little relieved that it suits your skintone though, since it likely means it’s too dark for me and I don’t have to worry about buying it!

  • this combination looks amazing on you! VERY interested in the primer after your recommendation now!

  • Marijana Šimić

    It seems to me as if they were too yellow hues.

  • Wow it looks flawless. The swatches look a bit orange but will need to go swatch it. The sponge has me interested though!

    I love this foundation but I have never tried the base.. I have the matte primer from Dior though for my primer. 😀

  • Thanks for the review! I’m debating about getting this, but dang your review is really tempting me 🙂


    This looks wow on your skin. I have been wanting this foundation for years now. but i recently received 2 samples of 030, i thought it was too dark on my skin. I normally wear beige but in winter i lighten up quite fast and im between 20-22. So this 030 is a no go for me, makes me look overly tanned and weird looking as i tend to be rosy on the cheeks so im not really sure which one would suit me best unless i try the shades by myself!
