Welcome to ‘Til The Last Drop: a bi-monthly column in which I, CF Beauty Editor, Olivia Bennett, share my review of a favourite cult product that I (truly) use to the last drop. This week’s featured product is Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation.
I’m messaged by friends and family, at all hours of the day, with recommendation requests for everything from “the budget gel moisturiser that works with combination skin” to “the hard-hitting eye cream that will make Botox a last resort”, and queries on “whether X, Y, and Z from the current trending brand are REALLY worth the hype”.
Such incessant inquiries sparked this column, where I’ll cover best-selling names alongside under-the-radar brands to note. You’ll hear about blow-the-budget products that live up to their hefty price tag and the purse-friendly steals which I unashamedly turn to time and again.
No need to text me, I’ll be sharing all my intel with you right here every other week. Tune in.
There are an overwhelming array of foundations available, and finding 'the one' can seem an impossible task. From selecting the optimum shade, to meeting your specific list of coverage requirements, and then considering if you want it to look matte or dewy – it's a lot. When I discovered Dior Forever Skin Glow it was truly love at first sight (read: application). It ticks all the boxes, somehow managing to offer full-coverage to blur imperfections and blemishes, whilst appearing sheer and fresh, rather than cakey. The magic lies in its composition, made of a 86% skincare base – blending flowers such as wild pansy to quench skin and rose to refine skin – it actively improves the complexion throughout the day rather than simply sitting atop your skincare. The finish is truly radiant, without becoming oily or shiny as the day goes on: I've worn it from morning breakfast meetings through to evening cocktails, with no need to re-apply. Even better, there are 42 shades available in cool, warm, and neutral undertones for the perfect colour match. Are you sold?
