Dior Forever Undercover Foundation
A new Dior foundation is always cause for excitement if you’re a base buff. Personally, I think Dior makes some of the very best concealers available, especially for older women, because they tend not to dry the skin and therefore add to your issues. With so many concealers, the water evaporates and leaves a dry residue of pigment that makes any creasing look exacerbated but for some reason this one doesn’t – nor does True Match and they’re about the only two that I’ve ever found that don’t.
So, Forever Undercover is a full coverage foundation in 26 shades although if you want the very deep shades (there are five) you need to buy from Dior.com because all the other UK stockists seem to only be stocking, on line at any rate, up to Hazel Beige which is five back from the very deepest, which is Ebony. I’m sure counters will be fully colour stocked and it’s best to test first anyway. The shade I have here is 020 Light Beige, which should be right for me but is a little bit dark. So, it didn’t get the full 24 hour test or even the full day to be honest.
The Forever Undercover Concealer is spot on though – I’ve used it under my eyes where it did take down the shadows without completely eradicating, and on some redness around my nose, which was completely blotted out. In terms of texture for the foundation, it’s silky and smooth on the skin, not at all drying and blends perfectly due to the fluidity. Dior claims that this formulation has the highest pigment level across the entire Dior base range and given that, it’s remarkably light feeling. The finish is a gentle matte – matte enough that you shouldn’t need powder on top but natural enough that you don’t look velveted.
