Christian Dior Forever Undercover foundation – first impressions

product review

I joined Glamour Beauty Club online a few months ago, and surprisingly, have received two great products in the post since. Last week I was fortunate enough to receive a (rather large) sample of Dior’s newest foundation; the Forever Undercover foundation boasts a 24 hr full coverage. Does it live up to its claims?

The Performance & First Impressions

Firstly, I would like to advise any fellow beauty bloggers to sign up to Glamour Beauty Club. As you will know, unless you have several PR companies consistently fighting to mail you products, (we aren’t all that lucky). It can get very expensive when you keep buying the latest products just to produce blog content. It’s handy being sent free products to test – and gives a helping hand in producing content for both social media and your blog.

I’m not really a full coverage gal if I’m honest. On a daily basis I’ll wear a light Serum foundation for work. However this Dior foundation gives excellent coverage, without the heaviness that often comes with full coverage foundation. It isn’t thick or cloggy (I think I just legit invented a word), it is light on the skin but covers all imperfections. I have rather large, open pores on my right cheek. Probably an after effect of battling acne for the last ten years. And I struggle to cover them, even with a decent primer on before foundation application. The Dior Forever Undercover managed to fill them in and give a flawless finish. (See picture below).

It smells divine when you apply it, and has that luxury feel that you would expect from a £34.00 foundation. I’d be happy to wear this daily, and on a night out. As for the claim of lasting 24 hrs, I’m not nasty enough to leave my foundation on for that long. Although it did last all day without any signs of wear on my face (8 hours or so). Overall, I’d say that the foundation is great, but there are other foundations on par quality wise that are slightly cheaper.

(I know I’ve got a filter on my mush, but this foundation did give a matte, flawless finish💜)

Dior poison girl: why you need this in your life asap 

product review

As you all know I’m a terrible serial spender. And as soon as I saw the adverts for this perfume which had launched weeks ago on the continent; I had mentally brought it already, 100 times over. 

When I realised it was now available in the UK I almost had a panic attack. I needed it like I need air. So, although I have a repair bill of £522 for my car (let’s not go into that) I still went and brought the 30ml for £45. Why? Because I’m blonde. But man does this perfume smell beautiful. 

The verdict: 

Hypnotic poison is my all time favourite perfume in the world. And I could never imagine anything better. 

They’ve managed it! The new poison girl by Dior is just simply enchanting. First of all it’s so pretty, and the fragrance is wonderful. With notes of orange and vanilla it is a modern reinvention of a grand classic. It’s less heavy than hypnotic poison, and smells like nothing I have smelt before. The staying power is magic too – hours later and I can still smell it on my neck. 

If you invest in anything this weekend, please make it this perfume because you will not regret it. Even if you will have to live off beans on toast for the next week like me. 

Final score: 9/10
