I picked it up in Boots for £30, but they had a deal on that day to get £10 of advantage card points when you purchased a product from Dior - whoop!
My ThoughtsOk - I'm going to get the two negatives out of the way off the bat. First, the price - it's £30 and NOT a foundation, but a BB Cream - that's a lot of money. Secondly, I was colour matched to the wrong shade - I am nearly every time I get colour matched, they always match me too dark as the people on the counters still haven't caught on that you need to match the colour to your neck and chest, not the skin on the face, which is almost always darker. Anyway - all that aside, it's still a workable shade as it's the summer :)
Now onto the good - and boy oh boy is there a lot of it! Ok firstly, packaging. I love that it's a tube with a pump on it, so rarely do you get a combination like that, it's usually one or the other, so that's a big plus from me. Next up, the formula. It's not too thick, but not too runny either. One pump is about all you'll need unless you're going for heavier cover, which reminds me, it is buildable. It blends in really well - I've only used my fingers for blending so can't comment what it's like with a brush.
The first time I used it I was a bit worried as it seemed to highlight my pores, but I kept blending and that wasn't a problem any more. If you've been reading my blog for any length of time you might remember that I always have issue with foundation cracking all around my chin area - well, this pretty much doesn't happen at all with the Dior BB creme.
The finish - is simply flawless. It's not thick and not heavy but seems to cover everything really well. My favourite thing about it is how well it sets on my skin. I'm sure I'm not the only one who hates that most foundations still feel slightly liquidy hours after applying, but this doesn't. However long after you leave it, if you touch your cheek you won't feel the bb creme on it - I've never experienced anything like this before, it's love at first application!
I really can't recommend this enough to anyone - all I need is to be colour matched to the right shade!
