I never get satisfied when I try foundations because it looks unnatural. My first one was from Sephora, but I used it only once. When I was in India, I was tanned a lot and during my first 2 months in France my skin remained the same. But with the climate here and the skin care routine (which I follow religiously!), my skin has shown some improvement. So my hunt for foundation started again which ended with this.
The product is in a square bottle with silver cap and the blue carton with silver words looks classy. But could have been better for a brand like Christian Dior. Don't hold the bottle by the cap! The cap is weightless! The pump applicator disposes a little amount with each pumping, so no wastage of product.
So why is this my ideal foundation? For that you have to know my expectations for ideal foundation.
1) Should match my skin shade
2) Should be sheer (skin without imperfections)
3) Should look natural
4) Should give a glowy/luminous look
5) Should make skin look healthy
It answers all my expectations ^_^

About shade 050
Suits mostly MAC NC 43-44 in winters. But I would suggest to check for a shade suitable for summers as the skin becomes a shade darker in summers. This is the last shade in Dioskin nude range:(
Makes skin look healthy
Staying power of minimum 6 hours
Perfect for winters
Suitable for dry and combination skin types
Lengthy ingredient list
Not for oily skin
Not a wide range of shades to choose from (only 10 shades)
Not for people who look for heavy coverage
If you are looking for sheer, natural looking foundation for everyday no make up look, then this may be your choice. If you find it too shiny, you can always adjust it with a little powder. I use the neutral shade from my Kiss Beauty Blush Palette to settle it!
