Being a rather huge fan of Diorsnow’s BB Cream I was all about trying out the new Dior Diorskin Nude BB Creme. This was launched in four shades recently for Spring 2013.
Although Dior totally gets the concept of BB Cream, as we know from their genius release of Dior Diorsnow UV Shield White Reveal BB Creme, they somehow missed a beat with the new Diorskin Nude BB Creme and the experienced turned into more of a tinted moisturizer experience.
A very sad SPF 10 also joins the mix here (considering White Reveal contains 50, that is quite a jump down)…
Take a peek!
Created as a multi-use BB Cream this promises to smooth, moisturize, and correct skin with a weightless formula enhanced with mineralized floral water and a blend of antioxidants.
Dior actually makes no promises about coverage, they market it as sheer and sheer it is. For me it almost feels like an illuminating primer of sorts that gives skin a glow with a dewy finish.
This does disappointed when you’re expecting a more traditional creamy, thick BB Cream formula with fuller coverage.
The texture is a runny, thin consistency which absorbs easily into my drier skin and leaves behind a moist finish. It’s actually positively delightful on my face. It feels very refreshing, almost cool, and leaves my skin nicely hydrated. The coverage is where I’m iffy…it’s very sheer so I had issues with it easing my dullness. I was hoping for a fresher appearance after application but I felt more like I just applied a lightweight moisturizer versus a BB Cream as it hydrated but didn’t actually ease my dullness or perfect my skin. I have clear skin with very little issues outside of dryness and dullness and I was disappointed with the coverage so I imagine if you have redness, acne scarring, or other problems and expect this to aid you in concealing those problems, you’ll be sorely disappointed. It does produce a minor glow on my skin but I can easily achieve that from a liquid highlighter of some sort, what I really want and need is some sort of tint to even out my skin and erase dullness.
Fair and Medium
Overall, Dior Diorskin Nude BB Creme isn’t really a BB Cream at all. I’d call it more of a tinted highlighting moisturizer of sorts. If you’re looking for a great BB Cream experience I’d try Dior’s White Reveal BB Cream for the creamiest texture and better coverage.
Didn’t love this one, sorry Dior!
