Dior Air Nude Foundation Review

By 

Hey everyone,

So you guys know I’ve been raving about the Dior Star foundation since I tried it.  I was really eager to try my second foundation from Dior – The DiorSkin Nude Air.  This is Dior’s first serum foundation.   For me the beauty of this foundation is the finish, it gives a natural, radiant (though not overly glowy) second-skin like finish.  It feels literally like nothing and was super lightweight when I applied it, it’s almost like it melted into my skin.

LOVED the texture!

The foundation has a watery texture so it comes with a dropper.  I just squeeze a bit on the back of my hand, or onto the brush or sponge that I’m using and then apply it.  It gives a natural – medium coverage with a matte finish.

Off the bat, it reminded me of Giorgio Armani’s Maestro foundation, but not as messy to apply.  Dior’s dropper is well designed in that it doesn’t create a mess but you do need to drop it on the back of your hand or on a palette – you can’t apply it directly on your face.

I also used this foundation quite a bit with my favorite stippling brush from Makeup Forever #122 and built up a bit more of a medium coverage for some parties I had to attend.  The foundation lasted all night though I did set it with my MAC mineralized powder.  My skin was glowing, hydrated and still looked natural.  There is a loose powder and tan powder that was launched with this foundation, which I haven’t tried yet, but they look amazing.

Pros

  • Super light weight feels like skin when applied
  • Beautiful, healthy, radiant finish
  • Smells amazing
  • I loved the formula, though it is watery, I think that’s what makes it so lightweight and skin-like.
  • SPF 25 but no camera flashback ! ( no white cast )

Cons

  • I checked out the color range at the counter and they do need more colors for deeper skin-tones.
  • If you have oily skin, this foundation needs a good powder to set it and keep it in place.
  • I find the foundation works best on smooth skin – I’ve been using retinol A, so I have some dead skin and it dries around it.

Overall, I loved this foundation.  For me Dior Star and now Dior Nude Air are both favorites and I recommend you try them if you’re looking for natural-looking medium coverage foundations.  I love love love the radiant finish and texture of the Diorskin Nude Air foundation. I have color 030  (I’m an NC25 from MAC). Check it out!

    I took your advice and purchased the dior star at sephora ‘ s last VIB sale.
    So glad I did. It really is so light and gives a glowy flawless finish. I previously used the make up forever HD foundation which I found to be more heavier. Can’t wait to play with it more during the summer weddings!
