If you’re following me on Instagram you’ll know that this September I’ve been working with Dior Beauty (I know, it’s CRAZY to me too!). In fact, I even hosted a giveaway with them earlier in the month, giving you guys the chance to win a red lipstick and foundation combo for yourself. So today I thought I would share a more in depth review of the red lipstick and foundation that I’ve fallen head over heels for…
If there’s one Dior makeup product I was itching to try, it’s their Forever foundation. Not only is the bottle gorgeous (the original comes in a frosted glass which is also dreamy), but I’ve heard so many good things about this foundation so I had high hopes. I tried the original formula in June (I purchased it with some World Duty Free vouchers at their Summer Gatwick event) and really liked it, but as I’ve been preferring a more glowy finish recently I also wanted to add Forever Skin Glow to my collection.
Luckily, Dior came through and sent me their Forever Skin Glow foundation and I have to say I am just loving it! The formula is really lovely and it gives a beautiful, natural finish. It’s a light/medium coverage, so I tend to wear a bit of concealer with this if my skin is breaking out. If you like a natural, glowy finish you will absolutely love this foundation! It is pricey at £37, but I honestly think it’s worth it as you only need two pumps for a full medium coverage.
Have you ever seen a more perfect red lipstick shade?! Shade 999 is Dior’s classic red lip, and I can see why because it’s just such a gorgeous colour. They sent me the lipstick shade in two formulas – a bullet lipstick and a liquid lipstick.
Personally, I’m more of a liquid lipstick girl myself – I find liquid formulas are a bit easier to apply and are less likely to disappear during the day. My main issue with liquid lipsticks is that they can feel really drying and go crumbly towards the end of the day, but this one doesn’t do either of those things! It feels weightless on my lips, and I can easily wear it all day without wanting to scrub it off of my lips at the earliest opportunity.
The design of the bullet lipstick is just gorgeous, I love the Dior logo on the top of the lipstick! This is also a really lovely formula and worth treating yourself to for the gorgeous bullet alone!
