A flawless face with Dior

As you may know, I am a big lover of flawless ‘no makeup’ – makeup. I have made a post about this subject a while back, but now that my main product in this beauty routine as changed, I decided to give you an updated version!
In my previous post I talked about my favourite foundation by Dr. Hauschka. This is an all natural cosmetics brand, and also loved by a number of celebreties, for example Kate Moss and Eva Mendes. I still love this foundation, but since it has light coverage to almost no coverage, I wanted to try out something that would cover up my blemishes slightly better.
Now I know that BB cream doesn’t have that much coverage either, but considering I’m not a fan of a full coverage foundation, I opted for a BB cream. I’d been hearing great things about the Diorskin Nude BB Creme, and despite the fact that it is on the pricey side, I tried it out.

First of all, I love the packaging. That’s very important for me, the looks of a product. I know it’s supposed to be only about the quality, but I honestly wouldn’t buy something that doesn’t look appealing when it comes to the outside and the packaging.
I picked the lightest colour, which is ‘light’, and it’s perfect for my skin tone. Now, considering the second lightest colour is called ‘fair’, some of you may think that is actually the lightest colour. This isn’t true though! I made the mistake of thinking that at first, and it turned out to dark. If you usually go for the lightest colour, or 01, with foundations, go for 01, ‘light’, with this BB Creme. I love the way it becomes absorbed in your skin within a few minutes after putting it on your face. Because of this, it looks even more natural and has a shiny, glowy finish. I usually finish off everything with a translucent setting powder, just to prevent any oiliness or shine throughout the day. If you want a natural looking, flawless and glowing face, I highly recommend giving this product a try. Below you can see what it looks like on me.

  1. That bb has a great texture and feels like nothing on skin, but unfortunately makes me kind of allergie, some red spots. …but it’s amazing! Feeling sorry my skin it’s too sensible! 😦

  2. Hi Sushiprincess,
    Thanks for following me doing my blogging 101 challenge. Are you doing it too? I love your blog, I also am very interested in beauty (that’s my day job and I do airbrush makeup). Enjoyed this post and have been looking for a moisturising tinted cream for a while, so I will try this one. I love Christian Dior products – but they are pricey, but hey a girl’s gotta have a treat now and then! Will visit again soon. Allychat πŸ™‚

    • It took me a while to figure out, but the language is Afrikaans! I understood everything though, it’s quite similair to Dutch :). Dankjewel voor de complimenten!
      I really appreciate your kind words! Xxx

      • Yes Sweet Saba- Afrikaans is a Dutch dialect spoken here in the Republic Of South Africa. I don’t speak it too well I think, but I’m glad you were able to understand. πŸ™‚ And you are very welcome. Really you are lovely, and it is indeed my pleasure to have made your acquaintance. Goeie Nag. XO.

  4. I, too, love many of Dior’s makeup products, especially their eye shadows and lipsticks. I wish I could also use their wonderful skin care products but can’t because I’m allergic to the heavy fragrance. The best skin care that I’ve found, btw, while also pricy, is Laura Mercier. And Bobbie Brown also has both great skin care and makeup. Just my thoughts. πŸ˜‰
