Finding a good match for foundations nowadays has proven to be difficult. It's that time of the year when my face is a totally different shade to my neck and chest. During the summer, I blind matched myself to this Dior foundation. I was running an errand in Oxford St, John Lewis and quickly stopped at the Dior stand and
matched myself to this foundation. HOW LUCKY WAS I? This foundation was the exact match - YAY!

This foundation is available in a whooping 40 shades with 6 different undertones, a good gradient of shades along the spectrum - well done Dior! I use the shade 4WO Warm Olive. 
"The Dior Backstage Face & Body Foundation is the Dior makeup artists' secret weapon to create an instantly flawless complexion with ultra-buildable coverage, from a natural nude glow to high-coverage perfection. Enriched with beauty-enhancing pigments, the formula fuses with skin that glows for a perfect, natural complexion in real life and through the camera's lens. The waterproof formula of the Dior Backstage Face & Body foundation creates an invisible mesh on the skin and resists extreme conditions: workout sessions, water, extreme temperatures and humid environments. It even resists the bright lights both backstage and above the catwalk".

I usually always wear primers with majority of my foundations, mostly because of how dry my skin can get. As this has been my go to foundation for the past few months, 90% of the days I wear it without foundation and it really does last an entire work day plus more! So I get ready around 5:30am, and some days I'm not home until 7pm in the evening and the foundation is still intact! 
The foundation makes my skin look and feel FLAWLESS! It's definitely not cakey, more 'you're skin but better' kinda foundation. It has a lightweight consistency and has no artificial fragrance. The packaging is light, mess-free and it has a small nozzle on the top so I can apply the foundation directly from the bottle to my face before blending it out with my beautyblender PRO. 

Packaging: Plastic Bottle 50ml
Shade: 4WO
Finish: Dewy
Coverage: Light - medium
This foundation is very long-lasting, lightweight, it has no transfer, does not separate and is great for those with dry skin. My concealer, powder and bronzer blends beautifully on top of this foundation. My favourite this about this foundation is its packaging, it doesn't come in an annoying squirty bottle :D
