This summer, Dior has launched a brand new BB Cream formula, Diorskin Nude BB Crème ($44).I picked it up at Sephora but it is readily available at several department stores as well. It comes in four different shades, which is more than most BB creams.I chose the shade Fair 002 which seems to match my skin perfectly right now but might be a tad dark in the winter.The lighter shade was too pink. Here are the details from Sephora’s website:
What it is: A BB cream with SPF 10 that moisturizes, smoothes, protects, and corrects.
What it does: Diorskin Nude BB Crème provides the benefits of skincare and makeup in a fresh and airy formula. Enhanced with mineralized floral water and a blend of antioxidants, it moisturizes smoothes, protects, and corrects skin with sheer coverage. Available in expert shades to match every skin tone, the complexion is illuminated with a unique fresh glow and dewy finish.
Diorskin Nude BB Crème provides pretty good coverage for BB cream; it’s a light to medium coverage. It’s a creamy formula that leaves a completely natural healthy finish.I think this product would suit just about any skin type.The texture is really nice; smooth and creamy. It feels and applies like a lightweight foundation. It truly did perfect my entire complexion, leaving me with only a bit of touching up under my eyes.It blended beautifully on my skin and looks completely natural.I did find that I needed to set the product with a little bit of powder, since my skin is oilier in the summer. I have been skipping my moisturizer and just using this. I have tried a few different BB creams (Smashbox, Bobbi Brown, Boscia, Urban Decay…) since they became so popular and I would say that this one is one of the best so far.So if you are looking to try one out, check out Diorskin Nude.I have also been trying out the newly released CC creams as well that are suppose to color correct/fade imperfections as well as nourish.Smashbox has a great one and I will be doing a review on that in the coming weeks, so stay tuned.
