I love Dior’s Capture Totale DreamSkin Perfector, so I wanted to try one of their regular primers. I was intrigued by the idea of maximizing glow, so I purchased this one. I’m quite indifferent with it- neither pleased nor displeased.
This formula promises to instantly brighten your complexion, sculpt your face, and improve radiance. The sales associate recommended mixing it with my foundation or applying after foundation as a highlighter. Those suggestions were all fine and dandy, and I tried them. But, since this is a “primer,” I was determined to use it as such, despite the shimmery particles.
It was pretty sticky when I applied it, but not so bad that it was intolerable. When used under a matte finish foundation, the shimmery particles did not look bad at all. My makeup wore just as long as with other primers, and my skin did look healthier and more vibrant. As I was told in the store, it looked best when applied as a highlighter. Unfortunately, if I am going to use something for that purpose, it will not be this. I prefer an actual highlighter, not a sticky primer!
Dior Glow Maximizer Light Boosting Primer retails for $42.00 for 1 oz.
