Dior 'Capture Totale' High Definition Serum Foundation
Hands-Down Best Foundation out there!
Let me start by saying that this is the only foundation I've used in the last 5-6 years, and I must have gone through ten bottles or so, at minimum. The small number only due to the fact that I don't wear makeup often at all. But to save a little money, I actually stock up on this foundation from duty-free whenever I travel. Ever since I've started using this product, there has been nothing comparable, so the price is definitely worth it. I have recommended this to all my friends, and they've all been committed to this product as well. Despite the price and 1oz size, it does last a long time, but I only use this during weekends and occasionally on weekdays.
Now, the product itself. It provides medium coverage, but looks very natural and people can't tell you are wearing makeup at all! Most importantly, it looks great and natural under the light, whether it's sunlight or under bright indoor lights. It stays on pretty well for a night out, but I have oily combo skin, so I do need a little powder here and there. The color is great and matches/blends in perfectly. I don't know if it does anything for my skin because I don't wear it often enough, but it feels very light and seems to moisturizer when it's cold and dry out.
I have tried putting this product on with fingers, foundation brush, flat sponges and those fancy eyedrop-shaped $20 foundation sponges. (Try the $10 Sonia brand sponge from Target instead, it does the same thing.) The foundation brush provides the most coverage and the fancy sponge does the best in blending it into your skin, but it sucks up a lot of product. (I dab the product onto my face first, then blend with the sponge by dabbing.) Fingers do the best job for daily wear. The flat sponges just waste your product.
Overall, love, love, love this product!
I had bought this foundation and have had it for a year now and I know that foundations have an expired date however, with this foundation I find that when I apply it on my face it is so soft and my complexion looks really nice. I suffer from acne prone skin and have cystic acne as well and this covers it really well and I do get oily in the afternoon but, I use a touch up powder and its still flawless. Also, since I have had this product whenever I get large pimples it helps to reduce that pimple or if I have a pimple that is small then I notice at the end of the day it dries up and its gone. I really do believe that this foundation helps the skin. I really love it and would recommend it.
I have tried many other foundations over the years.
This is the one that I keep coming back to.
Applies easily and looks so natural
Expensive but worth it!
This is my go to foundation! It is lightweight and just a small amount will provide coverage for your entire face. One bottle typically lasts a year for me. I've purchased this same foundation over five times.
