CS is a good alternative if you want the same properties than DW. What helps a bit is either mixing CS with an illuminating base, or using highlighter / Les Meteorites to finish.
It would be lovely to have a dewy finish foundation with all the same great properties than good old CS - transfer resistance, long wearing time, oil-free / acne-friendly composition, and cheap price, but I haven't found any yet. Chanel Lift Lumiere is close (too yellow on me though and can get too shiny though, transfers to clothes unless you are careful, and does not stay on as long). But it's very expensive and my shade is hard to find, so I'm looking for an alternative.
Diorskin Nude and Forever are great too, but contain something that sensitized me after a month of use. Has anyone tried the Bourjois more heavy coverage foundations?
