DIOR Forever Natural Velvet Matte Compact Foundation in 3N Review and Swatches

This powder foundation promises to be a ‘transfer-proof compact foundation that visibly reduces shine and provides up to 24 hours of natural-looking, matte coverage with a smooth, refined finish’. I loved the finish of this compact as it definitely lives upto that promise. It results in a velvelty smooth feel on skin and the shade 3N is a great match to my skin tone. The only problem is that it too oxidizes as the day goes on and turns quite pink/orange on my skin. I actually loved this compact but decided to return it since, I couldn't bear the orange look on my face.
In this post you will find swatches of the DIOR Forever Natural Velvet Matte Compact Foundation in 3N alongside my go to compact powder the Studio Fix by Mac Cosmetics in shade NC30 and a brief review of the DIOR Forever Natural Velvet Matte Compact Foundation since I no longer use it and do not recommend it as well.

From the swatches below its evident that this powder is a close match for my skin tone and its almost undetectable, however you may be able to spot the change in the color of the DIOR Forever Natural Velvet Matte Compact Foundation in the two swatches below. It looks more pink in the first photo below than the second.

Overall, this compact comes in a nice signature Dior compact packaging and has a refillable powder compartment which is great for reuse. It also comes with a sponge which is always very useful and perfect for touchups. If this shade did not oxidize on me it would have been perfect as this powder foundation is nicely pigmented and can be used on its own on skin. Unfortunately it doesn't come in the Warm shade range as all the shades available were Neutrals, so my best option was to return it and stick to my MAC Studio Fix powder foundation. I am still looking for something more luxurious than MAC but haven't been able to find a compact powder foundation as perfect as Studio Fix.
