After writing my last post about the BB/CC cremes that I’m currently testing, I thought it was time to share my holy grail base, the DiorSkin Nude BB Creme. This is the product I go to when I need a great base, and don’t want to fuss around.
First off, I have to say that despite being called a BB creme, this has the coverage of a lightweight foundation. It’s like ‘your skin but better plus’. It just gives the most flawless, natural coverage. It covers my redness, evens out my skin tone and gives my skin an airbrushed glow. This is the base that when I’m wearing it, I get the most complements on. So in my book, that makes it awesome :)
I have shade 01 and 02, which covers me from my light winter skin tone to my darker summer skin tone. The shade selection is where you can tell it’s actually a BB Creme, not a foundation. It comes in 6 shades, which for a BB creme is a huge selection. I find that compared to traditional foundations, the shades are very forgiving and blend out to match your skin tone.
This does contain an SPF 10 (which in my option is rather useless), but because the coverage isn’t full, I don’t find that it gives any flashback in pictures. It has a slight floral dior-esque scent, but I don’t find it strong or bothersome at all.
This is definitely at the higher end price wise, in Canada they cost $44, which is in the same range as many of the foundations at Sephora. It’s completely worth the price in my opinion, it just is such a nice base. I actually live near a Shoppers Drug Mart that sells Dior, so I’ve picked both of mine up with my Optimum points
Honestly, I do not have one bad thing to say about this BB creme. Each time I’m trying out a new base, I find myself comparing how it performs to this one. The DiorSkin Nude BB Creme is the bench mark that I hold all other bases too.
Have you tried the DiorSkin Nude BB Creme?
