I'm a huge fan of Diorskin Nude Natural Glow Fresh Powder Makeup, and wanted to find something similar but with less coverage and more glow. I try not to use too many products on my easily irritated skin, so I was looking for a light loose powder that I could dust over my skin whenever my skin looked a bit shiny or if my skin needed a little radiance boost.
I was given the Dior Capture Totale High Definition Radiance Loose Powder as a gift, and it ticked all the boxes; a loose powder which gives radiance to the skin.
According to Dior:
The 1st Dior 'radiance powder' created from a unique blend of HD Liquid Crystal Pigments and Aminolumine, the star ingredient of the CAPTURE TOTALE skincare line, to deeply reactivate the luminosity of the complextion. Applied with the powder puff of brush over foundation or directly after your Capture Totalte skincare, it embellishes makeup, optically smoothes the skin and reveals 'high-definition' radiance.Its slightly rose universal shade adapts to every skin tone to provide a sheer touch of freshness.
The price is high-end at around £45, but you do get quite a lot of product and it does last a very long time. The outer packaging looks very luxurious shiny silver coloured box.
The powder is housed in a very study, good quality clear tub with pearly silvery-lavender lid.
I was happy to see a mini flat brush included as well as small silky soft powder puff.
The sweet looking brush has a silver coloured semi-circular handle. The bristles of the brush a super dense, but does not feel very soft on the skin.
The powder only comes in one shade: Rose Lumiere/Bright Light 001
It's a really pretty light peachy/pink beige. The powder is very fine and soft.
List of ingredients
Texture I love the texture of this powder. It's so fine, and silky soft. It feels really weightless and fresh on the skin, and it feels like I'm not wearing any makeup.
CoverageThis powder has little to no coverage as it's a radiance boosting loose powder. It contains very tiny particles of shimmer which you have to look very closely in bright light to see. I love that the shimmer is so subtle as I don't look good with an overly shimmer face. It has good oil control and would be perfect for setting makeup.
Due to the subtle shimmer, the powder gives a nice radiant finish to the skin. Though the radiance is not hugely obvious, I did notice my skin to be brighter and my skintone to be slightly more even. On top of foundation, this powder gives a flawless, bright look to the skin.
Here is my naked skin without the powder:
It needs some oil control, and a bit of brightening. I really like the natural look, and use this powder on its own. So here are some pics of the powder on top of moisturised skin:
The powder evens out my skintone, and makes it less gray looking. It also gives the skin a brighter look and a soft-focused glow.
