Dior Star Foundation | The Star of My Makeup Bag

As soon as the launch of this foundation became official and all the reviews came rolling in, I was extremely intrigued – I won’t lie. Up until a month ago I has my HG foundation I swore by – the YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat foundation was everything I dreamed of it to be. My skin has swung from acne-prone and seriously oily in the past to combo/normal with tendency to get dehydrated and an occasional spot. Should we mention heavy dark circles I sport after my night shifts? Yup, let’s skip those this time. Well, the only thing my YSL foundation needed to improve was perhaps the longevity because my skin ate it all around the nose area within 4h. Also, when cooler months come I prefer my base to be luminous but not too luminous. And I really was diggin’ that semi-matte yet lit from within look this new Dior foundation was promising. After days and days of contemplation, I finally decided to try it out. I’ve tested it to the max and after a month of use, I feel like I’m ready to review my new HG foundation, the Dior Diorskin Star Foundation in 020 /$50 (sorry YSL!)

Cim je doticna podloga/tecni puder za lice pusten zvanicno u prodaju i recenzije su pocele da se nizu, moram priznati – bila sam izuzetno zaintrigirana. Sve do prije nesto vise od mjesec dana sam imala cvrsto na tronu svoju HG podlogu – YSL Le Teint Touche Eclat koja je bila sve sto bih mogla pozeljeti. Koza mi je presla put od izuzetno masne i sklone aknama u proslosti pa do mjesovite/normalne sa skonosti ka dehidrataciji te ponekom, hormonalnom bubuljicom. Da li da spominjemo tamne kolutove oko ociju koje je nemoguce neprimjetiti nakon mojih nocnih smjena na poslu? I zaista sam bila zadovoljna svojom YSL podlogom koja je savrseno funkcionisala. Jedino sto bih zamjerila je sto bi je koza ‘pojela’ za 4h na podrucju oko nosa. Takodjer, ono sto me inspirisalo da isprobam nesto novo je hladnije vrijeme, tokom kojeg volim zadrzati ‘dewy’ efekat sjajne koze ali ne u mjeri koliko to volim tokom ljeta. I nakon svega napisanog, mozete shvatiti zasto su mi obecanja polumat finisa uz osvijetljenu kozu djelovala privlacno. A Dior je obecavao sve to. Nakon vise dana premisljanja, odlucila sam da kupim novu Dior podlogu i tokom vise od mjesec koliko je koristim, sprovela sam detaljno testiranje nakon kojeg se osjecam spremno da vam pruzim recenziju Dior Diorskin Star tecne podloge u nijansi 020 (85KM u Plaza parfumeriji). Zao mi je YSL!

The bottle of the Dior Star foundation is absolutely gorgeous, the epitome of luxe! I dig the heavy glass bottle, the silver ‘necklace’ with Diorskin imprinted and the Christian Dior logo on the top of its cap. It’s just a thing of beauty. The only thing I’d say is a negative – it’s not travel-friendly but you can always decant it. Other than a very fine design, packaging is spot on with the pump. It works like a Swiss clock, making it available to dose how much foundation you want and no dribbles down it’s ‘neck’. It’s nicely made from all the angles. The reason I was drawn to this foundation is the fact it has a dewy finish which excludes an oily T-zone because it’s semi-matte at the same time. It’s rather hard to explain how it looks – in person, I get a matte finish after application but I catch a glimpse of sheen in my cheekbones. This foundation looks even better when worn-in and after an hour you get a beautiful sheen all-round but in a very soft way. My T-zone could use a dusting of powder after 4h-5h but I don’t even bother. It’s such a low-maintenance foundation as it doubles as a concealer too. I completely skip concealer when I’m wearing it but, of course, whenever I have really prominent dark circles I do throw some concealer in. Added bonus – the wide range SPF30.


Bocica Dior Star podloge je prekrasna, utjelovljenje luksuza – stvar ljepote. Svidja mi se teska staklena bocica sa prstenom srebrene boje na kojoj je utisnuto Diorskin, kao i Christian Dior logo na vrhu tamnog cepa. Jedina mana ovog pakovanja bi bila sto nije zgodno za putovanja ali uvijek mozete napraviti dekant za te prilike. Osim oku ugodnog dizajna, pumpica mi je privukla paznju. Radi kao svicarski sat, pruzajuci mogucnost da dozirate kolicinu pudera a necete pronaci ni curke koji cine da bocica izgleda neuredno. Najvise me ovoj podlozi privuklo je efekat svjeze, sjajne koze koja ne asocira na T-zonu jer je istovremeno polumat finisa. Dosta jedinstveno izgleda uzivo – nakon nanosenja koza izgleda mat ali uz meki sjaj na vrhovima jagodica. Ova podloga izgleda sve bolje sto je duze nosite i nakon sat vremena dobije onaj mekani sjaj po cijelom licu. T-zonu bi nakon 4h-5h mogla preci nekim laganim puderom ali ako bih cjepidlacila. Tako je jedan parktican proizvod jer mi sluzi i kao korektor. Otkako sam je pocela koristiti, korektor mi nije potreban – osim kada su mi tamni kolutovi izrazeni nakon posla. Dodatni plus je siroki spektar SPF30.

Dior Star Foundation is medium thick yet it feels incredibly light on the skin. It’s non-sticky and feels very comfortable to wear. It provides a buildable medium coverage – that’s why concealer isn’t needed at times. With two very thin layers I completely unify any imperfections on my face (redness, freckles,fine lines, spots, spot scars etc.). I adore how natural, undetectable it looks – just like second skin. It’s a perfect choice for gals that usually go for tinted moisturizers, BB, CC creams and such. It never looks caked on yet it acts as a protective shield of the skin, securing it from low temperatures and wind. This foundation has a decent shade range and I was matched to 020, described as Light Beige/Beige Clair. It definitely has a warm undertone – noticeable in the bottle but quite neutral when applied on the skin. It oxidizes ever so slightly, perhaps 1/4 of the shade. I love to apply it with clean fingers in moisturized skin (after Dr.Hauschka Revitalizing Cream & Nuxe Anti-Fatigue Eye Cream combo) and it ‘sits’ well on top. It doesn’t crease, applies evenly and fades evenly after an entire day. I’d recommend it to normal, dehydrated, combination skin and even slightly dry skin. I wouldn’t say that extremely oil skins would benefit from it much as topping it with layers of powder counteracts its purpose of providing a dewy effect – something oily skin is not in need. To me, this is the epitome of the saying ‘good, healthy skin in a bottle’!


Dior Star tecna podloga je srednje guste formulacije ali djeluje tako lagano na licu. Neljepljive je teksture i izuzetno je prijatna na kozi. Pruza srednje prekrivanje koje mozete ublaziti/pojacati nanosenjem u slojevima. Sa dva jako tanka sloja uspije prekriti vecinu nesavrsenstava (crvenilo, pjegice, fine linije, bubuljice, oziljke od proslih bubuljica itd.). Prekrasno mi je sto izgleda tako prirodno, skoro neprimjetno na kozi – poput druge koze. Bila bi savrsen izbor za zene i djevojke koje obicno koriste tonirane, BB, CC kreme. Nikada ne djeluje tesko kao ‘maska’ a ponasa se kao stit protiv niskih temperatura i vjetra. Koliko sam primjetila, Star linija tecnih podloga ima u ponudi pristojan izbor nijansi a meni je dodijeljena 020, opisana kao Light Beige/Beige Clair. Rekla bih da ima topli podton, primjetan u bocici ali je na kozi dosta neutralna nijansa. Na kozi oksidira minimalno, mozda za 1/4 nijanse. Volim je nanositi cistim prstima na ociscenu i hidratiziranu kozu (tacnije, poslije kombinacije Dr.Hauschka Revitalizirajuce i Nuxe Anti-Fatigue kreme). Preko njih ‘sjeda’ savrseno. Ne nakuplja se u naborima koze, nanosi se ujednaceno a ujednaceno i blijedi krajem dana sa koze. Preporucila bih je normalnoj, mjesovitoj, dehidriranoj pa i blago suhoj kozi. Mislim da izuzetno masnoj kozi ne bi odgovarala jer bi stalno posezali za puderom radi T-zone sto je kontradiktorno svrsi ovog tecnog pudera – da pruzi zdravi sjaj. Za moj pojam, ova podloga je utjelovljenje izreke ‘zdrava koza u bocici’!
