Yaayyy, I got this latest Dior foundie sample from last purchase.. When launched, I decided not to buy after looking at my foundation stash but I'm more than happy to finally receive this sample. Eventhough I am a make up lover, I'm trying to control myself. I decided not to add another bottle to my current collection.
What makes me happier is the packaging that is a miniature of the regular size. Of course not exactly the same, but almost. It reminds me of Giorgio Armani Maestro Foundation, but I don't have that Armani so I'm not in the place to comment.
I try to compare with the previous Dior foundie, Dior Star, which is one of my favourite foundie so far and also the Armani Maestro dupe, L'oreal Magic Nude.
For the texture and consistency, Dior Star is thicker than Dior Nude Air Serum. It should be, Dior Nude Air is a serum foundation so it should not be as thick as regular foundation.
Dior Nude Air also less coverage than Dior Star. The good thing, it is so light like your second skin. But you better fast when apply since it easy to dry once you put on your skin. It has satin finish and not drying.
L'oreal Magic Nude is runnier and less coverage than Dior Nude Air. L'oreal is also the most difficult to blend from all three. But I can't complain since L'oreal is drugstore product and the price is far below Dior. It is not correct to 100% compare each other.
Dior Nude Air performs well so far. I thought it would stay for only 2 or 3 hours. But I was wrong. It stays 5 to 6 hours on me without primer, then begin fading.
You can see the swatch of difference between using Dior Nude and without Dior Nude. It improves my skin texture a lot and still looks natural at the same time.
Hope this review helps. Thank you for reading..
