Dior Diorskin Forever & Ever Wear Extreme Perfection & Hold Makeup Base SPF 20 is the longest name for a makeup base and it is extremely effective at what it’s designed to do. It consists of a thin, white fluid that feels very silky. It dries down to a lovely finish all by itself and gives my skin a luminous and even tone. When I applied foundation (in my case, Shiseido Synchro Skin Lasting Liquid Foundation) over it, the foundation lasted a very long time (9 hours!) without fading or oxidizing.
What I like about this Diorskin makeup base:
- SPF 20 provides some sunscreen protection;
- small plastic packaging with a tiny spout is great for travel and protects the ingredients from light and air;
- lightweight, silky feel, not sticky or heavy, matte finish (unlike the Armani Maestro Glow UV makeup base, which is more glowy).
Available at Sephora, Dior (online) and department stores. $45.
