Pricey vs Priceline: Serum Foundation

by Madeleine Borgersen

Serum Foundations are a new addition to our beauty bag arsenal. Offering the benefits of foundation and serum (who’d have thought it?!) in one sweet little package you can keep up your skin lovin’ throughout the day whilst looking fantastic.

Pricey vs Priceline: Serum Foundation

Pricey: Christian Dior – Capture Totale – $101.50

Dior’s foundations are always amazing and the Capture Totale is no exception. Offering your skin a radiant, buildable coverage with serious staying powder.

Enriched with the essence of the new Longoza-Cellular ComplexTM to target youth-replenishing cells, it keeps up your good work at night whilst giving you a flawless, velvet finish (similar to Napoleon’s Stroke of Genius foundation finish!)

It’s great for anyone that is conscious of preserving all their hardwork in the skincare department but still wears a daily full face.

Priceline: Bourjois – Healthy Mix Serum Foundation – $32

Bourjois take on the serum foundation (not to be confused with their original Healthy Mix Foundation!) uses fruit extracts to give your skin a gorgeous glow both during your day and after you’ve removed the makeup at night – which we all do! (I try, I’m getting better!)

Litchi, goji berries and pomegranate gives a radiant glow to the dullest of skins. The coverage is shear but definitely buildable perfect for any preference. The finish is dewy but it doesn’t shift off my oily t-zone at all!

The Verdict:

If you put these two side by side I’d go for the Bourjois again and again. I love the smell, the dewyness and the longevity. I also love the fact that both of these foundations offer a guilt-free solution to wearing a full face all day.

With the Bourjois Healthy Mix Serum being a third of the price, it has to be the definite pick this week!

    I love the Healthy Mix serum foundation, definitely one of my favourites in my collection… Another lovely serum foundation is the YSL Youth Liberator, but it’s definitely up there on the pricey end of the spectrum!
