- 7 depths of color from 1 through 7.
- 3 undertones with 0 being neutral, 1 for yellow-undertone and 2 for cool undertone.
- For example, my shade 031 is for medium skin tone with yellow undertone.
Diorskin Nude provides very smooth finish, covering my uneven complexion. One pump for medium coverage and two if you want full coverup. It evens out my skin tone and stays put for 8 hours.
Diorskin Nude is oxidized A LOT during the day with or without setting powder. You may want to match with a slightly lighter shade than your actual skin color. Although named "hydrating" it's rather dry and sets in matte finish. I always prep my skin with a thick moisturizer. Even so this foundation emphasizes the flakiness around my chin in the winter. I've found this the major issue I have with Diorskin Nude. It also sets in my fine lines. I need to sheer out these areas more than other areas
Dior Skin Nude used to be my holy grail foundation. I finished half of the bottle and just to run out of patience with the mentioned downsides. Since the discovery of Chanel Mat Lumiere, I don't reach for Dior Skin Nude as often.
Swatched with few other foundations. 1) Giorgior Armani Luminous Silk 6.5; 2) Giorgio Armani Luminous Silk 5.75; 3) Chanel Mat Lumierre 4.0; 4) Dior Skin Nude 031; 5) Bobbi Brown Moisture Rich 3.5; 6) Nars Sheer Glow Stromboli.
