Dior is known for being one amongst the luxury names in the industry. Although the brand is known for its line of fashion, accessories, and perfume; it also has a few lines of makeup. As a part of a Foundation Test Tuesday that I’ve been trying to keep up; today’s blog is all about Dior Backstage Face & Body Foundation review.
Like any other foundations, I have used the Dior Backstage Foundation several times. This is how I know whether I like the foundation or not. I do this to all foundations that I’ve tested out or will be testing out in the future. So going back to the reason for this blog, let’s get into the review!

DIOR BACKSTAGE FACE & BODY FOUNDATION REVIEW
Dior Backstage Foundation ($40 for 1.6 oz/50 mL) has a plastic bottle packaging. To be honest I was surprised that it didn’t come in a glass packaging given that Dior is a luxury brand. It also didn’t come with a pump. Rather, the bottle needs to squeeze out for the foundation to come out.
This is probably the most pleasant smell foundation I have ever smelled so far. It smells like perfume yet it’s not overwhelming.
Please note that some people might not like the scent. I personally don’t mind it. In fact, I really like it!
The consistency of the foundation is quite runny. Which means that it can work with either foundation sponge or brush.
As I’ve mentioned above, the foundation can work with either foundation sponge or brush because of its runny consistency.
To be fair, I’ve tested both for applications. I recently tried a different way of putting foundation on my face by applying small dots all around then blend it using whichever face tool I prefer that day. I save a lot of foundations with this method.
I’ve tried out this foundation using three different tools; IT Cosmetics Airbrush Buffing Foundation Brush #110, Morphe M6, and Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge.
Real Techniques Miracle Complexion Sponge – if you are looking for a lighter coverage, I suggest using a sponge. First application will give you a medium coverage. But you can build it up with a second and third application to make it into full.
IT Cosmetics Airbrush Buffing Foundation Brush #110 and Morphe M6 – these two foundation brushes have the same results. It will give you more coverage than a sponge does. So, if you’re looking for more coverage, I’d say pick a foundation brush that works best for you.
This foundation has a matte finish and I am living for it. As you already know, I have an oily combination skin type. So, there’s no second guessing why I love this foundation. Although, this has a matte finish, it doesn’t look flat. It applies flawlessly which looks more natural.
I was so impressed that this foundation held up so long. The longest time that I had the foundation is roughly about 12 hours. I’ve used it at work and went to a party after, and it held up pretty well.
I’ve noticed that my t-zone started to feel oily at about 8 hours of used indoors. It’s not bad at all, nothing a blotting paper can fix. While most parts of my face stayed put together. My blush, highlights, and bronzer were the same as when I applied them.
The Dior Backstage Foundation is a big yes for me. The finish is perfect for an oily-combination skin type. It applies easily and it is buildable to get full coverage. Moreover, the foundation has a light way feels. It’s comfortable to wear even for long hours.
Given that it is a high-end foundation, $40 is fairly a good price. I was a bit disappointed about the plastic squeezable bottle. But if you think about it, it is actually good when traveling.
So, that’s it for today’s review. Have you guys ever tried the Dior Backstage Foundation before? If so, did you like it?
