As a finishing touch, Diorskin Forever & Ever Control loose powder guarantees a long-lasting matte result. Its air-whipped texture in a universal shade leaves a weightless finish on the skin.
The powder comes with a kabuki brush (as seen in above photo), which is of nice quality and not scratchy.
Instead of the usual “holes,” the face powder uses an elastic mesh so as to only get the desired amount of powder. The powder isn’t entirely contained with the mesh especially when shaken, but it still does not get messy like with a regular loose powder tub with holes.
For setting and retouching
As the finishing touch, evenly apply powder over the entire face to perfect and set makeup.
For touch-ups, delicately apply powder on the T-zone to neutralize shine.
I do use this to both set and retouch. I ♥ that it mattifies, minimizes the appearance of pores, and doesn’t settle on dry areas and fine lines. The powder is so finely-milled; no build-up and truly invisible. It keeps my face matte for 5 to 6 hours–depends on how much powder I was able set with. I usually concentrate on my nose where I always get really oily if I need to retouch.
I haven’t tried this without foundation, so I can’t say if it’s great on its own.
So, would I recommend it? Well, I have mixed feelings. The powder didn’t really “wow” me at first. Its oil-control isn’t as good or better than my favorite, the Laura Mercier Translucent Loose Setting Powder. But I fell in love when I discovered .
The Diorskin Forever & Ever Control Invisible Loose Powder is not a bad product overall. It’s just not something I gravitate often, but I always bring it around because eez so fancyyyy~ 😆 Seriously though, since Dior is expensive after all, I would recommend this only to those looking for a powder that doesn’t grab on to dry areas and settle on fine lines. If you’re after oil-control, skip it.
I bought my powder at Singapore Changi Airport.
