As you probably already know, I am a foundation addict. I’m pretty much always on the hunt for the best product for my face in terms of foundation. I’ve been testing out the Dior Backstage Face and Body Foundation for quite some time now, and think it is finally time to talk about. How does it compare to my favorites, and does it live up to the Dior name?
A few years ago, I was practically obsessed with the MAC Studio Face and Body foundation. I eventually quit using it because I simply got bored, and I felt like trying new items. While I was browsing Sephora a few weeks ago, I stumbled upon the Dior Backstage Face and Body Foundation.
As a creature of habit, you can bet that I placed it in my cart and had it shipped over. With all Dior Beauty products that I have tried, the packaging is gorgeous, and very reminiscent of the brand itself.
One thing to note is that the bottle seems a lot larger online, but is standard for a foundation bottle, so have no fear! The top is a dropper which makes it really easy to dispense the product, and keeps it clean as well.
What Kind Of Coverage Are We Talking About?
The Dior Backstage Face and Body Foundation is a pretty light coverage. It is meant to be a formula that you can build up to whatever intesity you like. For everyday, I find one application is plenty! If I am trying to wear more, I simply add another coat on top, and it has a dramatic impact on the difference on the skin.
It definitely has a tinted moisturizer application with one coat, and has a similar feel. Personally, I never like to feel like I am weighed down with product, so it is perfect!
*I’m coming at you with an update from future Ashlee, it is currently August 2019, and this has been the foundation I have used exclusively since initially writing this post, it’s that good!
This does have a matte finish on the skin which kind of scared me at first. I usually don’t have the best luck with the kind of finish. Luckily, it has been working out so well on my skin and looks more natural than I ever expected it to. It lasts forever too!
I haven’t had to retouch my makeup once when I’ve been wearing this, and it lasts through everything. I just got off a vacation to the Bahamas, and it even through those incredibly hot days too. Did I mention that it is waterproof?
Do You Need It?
This is one of the foundations that have up to forty different shades so that it is more inclusive than others on the market. As always, I think that the range could be more expanded, but I’m sadly not in control of that.
It works for pretty much almost any skin and is amazing on my weird skin issues as well. For a luxury beauty brand, the Dior Backstage Face and Body Foundation sits at a pretty good price point. It is $40 and covers sixteen different intensities and a range of undertones.
