(Lol at diorskin being autocorrect to Diorkin.)

ANyone? dry ravaged lizard face

GlitKnit Thu 22-Nov-12 19:42:01

oh come on! Someone must have

cardoon Thu 22-Nov-12 19:48:46

I had both at the same time and thought they were quite similar

GlitKnit Thu 22-Nov-12 19:49:13

aha - so no real point then? I am scared if i defect that dior will be crap

steben Thu 22-Nov-12 19:53:20

I did and would agree they are similar - however after reading people on here swear by Estée Lauder double wear I switched to that and am now a devotee!

GlitKnit Thu 22-Nov-12 19:54:15

isnt that for pock marked faces ;)

i always think its for REAL THICK GLOOPY coverage, and look your skin looks fine from here

Diorskin Nude and Forever are the best foundations I've tried, but I developed an allergy to them. Chanel use different perfumes and preservatives, I still use Lift Lumiere (good but not great).

steben Thu 22-Nov-12 20:55:28

Well I don't have a pock marked face - it gives lovely even coverage and stays put all day. I get lots if compliments wearing it and I would also say I am not one of the slap it on with a trowel brigade either

Yes! Vitalumiete just that bit slicker, Dior better IMO. Double wear bloody horrible crater filling stuff, if you're asking me, dry n horrible!

GlitKnit Thu 22-Nov-12 22:23:12

Why is Dior better?

willybreeder Thu 22-Nov-12 22:51:55

I think Dior Skin has more coverage and Chanel is more dewy. Not a fan of Estee Lauder DW either

GlitKnit Thu 22-Nov-12 22:57:43

Oh thanks. smile

cardoon Fri 23-Nov-12 07:41:34

Don't get EL DW if you have dry skin, it will suck out any remaining moisture and make you look like you are wearing a death mask

GlitKnit Sat 24-Nov-12 08:58:55

Right. I've ruled that out.

oh but you cant buy that in a ONe Horse town

I tried a sample of dior nude and was not convinced. It was very thick and quite the opposite of nude. Would not be convinced enough to abandon my beloved vitalumiere.

Eliza22 Sat 24-Nov-12 19:45:24

I'm wearing EL Double Wear in both my profile pics, taken a few weeks ago, for my 50th. I look ok. Don't appear to have had "the life sucked out" of me! smile

GlitKnit Sat 24-Nov-12 23:53:57

Agree. Got a sample. Very powdery. H also noticed which is surprising

GlitKnit Sat 24-Nov-12 23:55:12

So Dior nude and your crap saleswomen at John Lewis west quay. No.

DonaAna Sun 25-Nov-12 09:01:45

Depends on you skin. Chanels make my skin slightly oily towards the end of the day and they won't last until evening (becomes visibly patchy around nose and eyes - Lift Lumiere stays on better than Vitalumiere). Also the coverage is quite sheer - you will need concealer if you have discolorations (I have some pigment spots and two slightly purplish small scars).

Dionskin has better coverage and lasts longer, and does not get greasy.

i dindt like in the end - was too powdery
