My Experience with Dior Capture Totale Radiance Restoring Serum Foundation :

Well, it contains a blend of anti-aging ingredients which include Alpha-Longoza and Centuline, optical correctors, and HD liquid crystal pigments. I don’t need anti aging, but I happen to love the effect it gives my skin- dewy and velvety, not oily with a flawless coverage.

Makes my skin look perfect, almost flawless in photos and in person and does not make my skin oily too. I have a super sensitive skin and so am a bit choosy about the products I pick up for myself. Being serum based, it imparts an amazing glow to my skin- which I love!And  yes, it did not oxidize on my skin too 🙂

Though, it it’s a serum based foundation, there is no reason to think that the consistency is watery and it is sheer coverage- in fact it is just the opposite! Coverage is awesome without being unnatural and cakey and has medium to almost full coverage (buildable). I have some mild acne marks and they are well taken care with this alone- there is no need of an additional concealer.

I have used other foundations but honestly none come even close to this. It gives good coverage (buildable), without looking heavy and made up and the result- you look flawless and perfect in person and in photos!What’s more, in this humid Indian climate, it is difficult to wear a heavy foundation.

It is best to use a stippling brush with this foundation, as a little goes a long way! You can try out with your fingers and I have noticed that it is almost equally good, though you won’t get that airbrushed finish.

In the summers it is best to set it with a base primer and powder and it will last you the entire day- I mean 10 hours+ and in the winters, I do not need to set it with powder, I love that dewy/satiny/velvety look it imparts- almost like your ‘my skin but much better’ look 😉 It stays put and does not settle into fine lines near the eyes! It literally melts into your skin!

The bottle is equipped with a pump dispenser and one pump is more than enough for your face and neck- so a little goes a long way. It is great for day wear as it has SPF 15- so, yes, flash photography might not be the best choice with this on! And this probably the only con I can think of!

Removal- Not at all a pain! It comes off well with normal cleanser and water, though I always use my normal make up remover and then wash my face with my cleanser!
