Pros: adjustive formula, color selection
Cons: it flows out when i shake it

Dior Backstage is the first collection from Dior which was specially designed for fashion show makeup artists. The design of the line was developed by the Dior creative director Peter Philips. The products are relatively new in the market for makeup artists as well as all those who want to create a flawless complexion.

The main concern in the new collection was about achieving a natural effect with professional products: natural-looking skin, delicate glow and subtle shadows.

The idea was fully realized, indeed. The color selection turned out to be muted and tender. The collection consists of 40 shades of foundations 2 eyebrow palettes, 2 eyeshadow palettes and one for contouring, highlighting and lip makeup. The collection also presents 14 brushes for creating the perfect makeup looks.

Today we’ll speak about the Dior Backstage Face and Body Foundation which is able to adjust to any skin tone and it’s light and see-through packaging will be very friendly when choosing your right shade. The formulation of the foundations is amiable here. I feel them comfortable on my skin and they apply really evenly.

The bottle isn’t handy to use, though. The product flows out through a nozzle. I don’t know what they were thinking when creating this packaging! I highly recommend you store it vertically and use as carefully as possible to eliminate flows.

The texture is runny, just like water. It applies with an even coverage, it doesn’t bleed, creating a beautiful satin veil over my skin. I don’t recommend you using any makeup sponges or brushes for application, since sponges usually devour too much of the product, while brushes apply it streaky. In the promo ad their makeup artist uses a fluffy foundation makeup brush.

The coverage is buildable: you can apply it with a thin layer, as well as gain a medium coverage. But don’t expect that this foundation will camouflage all your skin blemishes. The product is runny consistency-wise, that’s why it’s prone to pores and flaking accentuation. It works well when it comes to some minor skin blemishes concealing, like reddening and acne scars for instance.

I have two yellow-toned shades from the Neutral collection: 2N and 3N. Currently my skin is tanned, so 2N is nice for me as well as for those who have average skin tone. But the 3N shade will flatter only swarthy skinned girls.

I don’t use these products on a daily basis, since they are a little bit dark for me and flatter only tanned skin.

The finish seems velvety-matte, which makes you free from using a powder.

These foundations aren’t bad, though I wouldn’t say that they’ve touched my heart and became my favorites. It’s up to you to decide whether you need them or not. Wink

Thanks for your attention.
