First Impressions (in humidity!): The Dior Diorskin Star Foundation

Those of you who have been with me for years (firstly, thank you!) will know that my love for Dior's old, early 2011 formula of their Diorskin Forever Foundation - tagged their Extremewear Flawless Make Up, was an HG-status foundation love that ended abruptly at their reformulation, which I can only describe as a massive mistake. So my approach to this newly launched Diorskin Star Foundation was excited but cautious.

So before I go on, I have to put a massive caveat on these first impressions - I've only tried this in the insane humidity of Japan, where liquids that stay on my face and don't get oily all day in the UK, slide off my face in a matter of hours.
