I have used many of Dior makeup and this brand has never disappointed me. When Dior released their New advanced DreamSkin range few months back I got my hands on it.

Capture Totale DreamSkin Advanced Perfect Skin Creator
Capture Totale DreamSkin Advanced Perfect Skin Creator is a cream like fluid that is supposed to work as an anti-aging skincare in long term while provides smooth and perfect skin instantly.
Dior website describes:
Dior has reinvented it’s best selling, cult skincare product, Dreamskin. Now featuring breakthrough technology that works harder than ever to reduce fine lines and wrinkles, tighten pores, and increase radiance, Dreamskin Advanced is effective at any age, and works on all skin types and tones. INSTANTLY, this new formula infuses the skin with greater perfection, correction and comfort. A skin-perfecting veil visibly transforms the skin, diffusing a fresh glow. The skin’s texture is refined. Spots and redness are minimized, and pores appear tightened. DAY AFTER DAY, skin is firmer, smoother and more even. Available in a 50 ml refillable format.
I bought this product to use as an instant skin corrector and it does its job beautifully. It instantly smooths and perfect my skin, naturally enhances my complexion and boost radiance.
I can use it alone or as a primer under my foundation and it does make a difference. It moisturizes and gives my skin a fresh look, blur imperfections and brightens my complexion. It doesn’t feel dry but hydrates and smooths my skin
As the result of this product is very natural and hard to capture in pictures. I tried my best to give the idea how it looks on skin:
It glides on skin effortlessly and my foundation over it blends really well. I use it after moisturizer and before foundation and I can feel my makeup is much more beautiful. Its texture is creamy and It has an amazing light smell which is not overwhelming. Another good thing about this product that it is for all skin types.
Capture Totale DreamSkin Advanced Perfect Skin Creator comes in two sizes 1 Oz for $115 and 1.7 Oz for $150, which is quite pricey but this product worth it. There is also a refill available comes in only size of 1.7 Oz for $128.
I truly love its packaging. It comes in a light pink bottle with a pump dispenser. The packaging of 1.7 Oz bottle is refillable. Pump dispenser comes out easily and new one can be inserted.
DreamSkin Fresh and Perfect Cushion 000 – Non Tinted
When it comes to foundation I always look for light to medium coverage with natural finish. For reference I have a normal to combination skin with medium olive tone. When I came to know Dior has released their iconic cushion foundation in shade 000 – non tinted which is for all skin tone. I knew I had to get it.
DreamSkin Fresh and Perfect Cushion can be defined as a skin corrector in a compact. This compact is perfect for natural look and glow.
Dior website describes:
Dior has reinvented its iconic cushion compact: now in an updated formula that provides increased hydration. This complexion perfector features the correcting power of Dreamskin within a portable case to enhance and protect skin. Upon application, its luxurious texture perfectly fuses with the skin to unify in transparency and improve the appearance of redness, shine, and pores. Skin is left refreshed, luminous, and beautiful.
DreamSkin Fresh and Perfect Cushion works more as a filter than foundation. It blur imperfection and doesn’t hide my skin under any color like all other foundations. It smooths my skin and creates a perfect canvas for makeup application.
It is not a full coverage foundation but evens out skin really well. Formula and texture is extremely light weight and breathable that I don’t feel I am wearing any kind of heavy foundation. It minimizes the appearance of pores and creates a flawless finish. I don’t find any shimmer in it but it gives a subtle glow of natural looking healthy skin.
Although it comes with its own sponge (Which I don’t find really a good one) I would apply it with CHANEL Les Pinceaux de Chanel Sponge (Reviewed Here) and finish it with my TOM FORD #01 Foundation Brush. It blends out easily and sets to a very natural luminous finish. It literally looks like my own skin but better.
This cushion comes with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 50 which is a great plus for me since i don’t like wearing sunscreen and its feel on my skin.
This combo of Capture Totale DreamSkin Advanced Perfect Skin Creator and DreamSkin Fresh and Perfect Cushion is perfect to create a fresh and naturally healthy looking skin with flawless finish.
Staying power is quite good, I applied DreamSkin Fresh and Perfect Cushion after applying moisturizer and Capture Totale DreamSkin Advanced Perfect Skin Creator, it stayed put in a good shape for more than six to seven hours in my case, but remember I don’t wear makeup any longer and remove it after that.
DreamSkin Fresh and Perfect Cushion comes in an elegant compact with its own sponge and built in mirror in it. It retails for $82 but it comes with two cushions and a compact and you can continue to buy refills for $42.
