I used the new Diorskin Airflash CC Primer for this FOTD, to see how it would hold up on my oily skin. It claims to add a ‘radiance’ to your skin while prepping it for foundation application. The color really is universal (it goes on white and blends out sheer), and honestly I initially didn’t see the ‘radiance’ that it was claiming. But apparently, the camera saw it just fine.
I used it ‘all over’ this time. I think in the future, I might just limit the radiance to the center of my face, and go around the edges with a bronzer.

*I found that on my oily skin, the CC Cream encourages oil production… and may eventually break the normal finish of the Airflash Foundation (which I never need to touch up). I blotted heavily once halfway through the day (during 10 hours of wear) and it seemed to hold up after that until I took it off. But that halfway point, when I blotted, I was VERY oily. The oil production didn’t break the foundation, but it made me look REALLY shiny and overdone (like I should have an an evening dress or something). I’m on the fence about using these products together. I feel like they work better when being used with other products. I don’t use a primer with the Airflash Foundation, and it holds beautifully. The addition of a primer (even from the same brand) may be a little too much for my oily skin to handle.*
