Love at First... Swatch? Diorskin Nude BB Cream

Fuss free make-up, skin like finish and dewy-ish complexion are all things I look for in a base. I've mentioned before that I don't tend to jump on a product hype straight away. I like to wait a while and slowly make my mind up. This Dior BB cream has been on top of my wish list since THAT Lisa Eldridge video. I'm not even going to mention how many times I've watched that video and analysed how beautifully the BB cream applied. Eventually I caved, I couldn't wait any longer and it had to be mine.

My Precious-  Diorskin Nude BB Cream
I'm a hard critic to impress when it comes to bases like these. I usually find they are not anything to write home about. However, as soon as I had a play with this beauty my mind was changed. From the first swatch I knew this was a game changer. The finish this BB cream creates is dewy yet skin like, it makes me look a bit more alive and fresh after not much sleep. Its applies beautifully, best with fingers, and it doesn't start off looking grey on the skin like most BB creams do. Dior promises that this BB cream "corrects and hydrates skin" which it indeed does without feeling heavy. If you prefer a light to medium base, this is for you. Most days I wear just this, a bit of concealer (damn you dark circles), mascara and I'm good to go. Although this does include some skincare benefits I'd probably still place in under the tinted moisturiser category.

I was initially impressed that for a BB cream it does come in three colours unlike others I have tried which only come in one shade (Dr. Jart I'm looking at you). I would prefer it if they did introduce some more shades, as 003 (which is what I have) is the darkest and I'd say that would suit a medium skin tone. Onto the packaging, I've been a big fan of Dior packaging since purchasing my mum some Dior lipsticks. I simply think their perfect. I love the pump applicator it's very convenient. The tube looks and feels luxurious but for Dior would you really expect anything less?

What is your favourite BB cream? 


  1. I rarely use BB creams as I'm a HEAVY COVERAGE ALL THE WAY type of girl (I know, I'm awful!). I've only ever actually owned one Dior product, and that was the Pure Poison perfume - which was so lovely!
