So I’ve talked to you guys about how I’m obsessed with Dior’s Diorshow mascara? Well, my obsession with Dior continues.  I went to my second homeSephora last weekend, and picked up Diorskin Icone, creme-to-powder makeup.  They should call it creme-to-perfect makeup, because I seriously don’t think I’ve ever used a more perfect foundation.

I loved this product SO much, I’m really excited to have found it.  I chose “medium beige” as my color, but you have ten shades to choose from.  The color matches my skin perfectly, and it evens out my skin flawlessly.  It dries to a really smooth powder, and you can literally NOT tell you have anything on your skin at all.

It was a bit spendy at $41.00 – BUT with that said, this product should last you a lifetime.  I used a pea-sized amount, and it covered my whole face.  PLUS I didn’t use it all.  I don’t usually recommend products as strongly as I’m recommending this one.  You owe it to yourself to give it a try!

New mom Keri Russell steps out on Tuesday for an afternoon stroll in Los Angeles with her 3-month-old son River. She is just too cute, she needs another movie she was so great in Waitress. If you haven’t seen that movie yet rent it this weekend! It’s a romantic comedy with and actual script and not just a formula movie.
