Have you tried a cushion compact yet? If not, do you know what a cushion compact is? To begin with, cushion compacts are a Korean Beauty invention. Also, the rest of the world has given the Korean Cushion lots of attention . I totally live up to their hype. First, Korean’s consider the cushion compact a fusion of skincare and makeup. The reason is, the cushion doesn’t just cover your skin, it also improves the look, feel and health of your skin. Some cushions act as sunscreens. Others have more coverage. Therefore, they can be a foundation. Still, some cushions give you anti-aging benefits. And, others are more hydrating for your skin. Now, Koreans aren’t the only ones to make cushions. For example, Bobbi Brown has a cushion foundation. Dior extended their Dream Skin line to include the Capture Dream Skin Fresh Perfect Cushion.
The Dior Dream Skin Fresh Perfect Cushion not only gives your skin sheer coverage, it improves the look and feel of your skin. In addition, it improves the health of your skin. Additionally, it comes in four tinted shades, and a non-tinted shade. The tinted shades are Ivory, Light Beige, Medium Beige and Apricot Beige.
You can find the Dream Skin Fresh Perfect Cushion, with one refill at Sephora, Neiman Marcus, and The Dior Website. The Skin Fresh Perfect Cushion retails for $82. However, you can purchase refills without buying another compact, for $42.
Dior Dream Skin Fresh Perfect Cushion Packaging
To begin with, liquid formulas are easier to travel with inside of a compact. In other words, a heavy glass bottle is not something you’d throw in your handbag for a quick touch-up!
The Dream Skin Compact sits in the palm of your hand.
Opened, it has a nice big mirror on the inside lid. On the opposite side, is the application sponge.
The sponge sits on top of the protective lid that snaps on to prevent the cushion from drying out.
Dior Dream Skin Fresh Perfect Cushion Formula
The formula comes from ancient stamp and seal practices that maintain and preserve liquid emulsion it its optimal state. In other words, it makes the formula lighter. Also, it delivers less product with each dab of the sponge. As a result, it is almost impossible for the formula to be cakey.
The formula blurs imperfections. without hiding your skin underneath. Also, it delivers a dose of moisture to your skin. Unlike Milk Makeup’s Luminous Blur Stick, it doesn’t have any shimmer in it. Instead, Dior uses a blend of mica and soft focus powders to help camouflage redness and create a luminous blur ( just like the blur you get on instagram!)
The formula also has all of the correcting and skin-perfecting power of Dream Skin. However, the only difference is, this one comes in a portable compact! Hence, it will treat, enhance and perfect your skin.
Furthermore, the lightweight texture fuses with your skin. The result is a natural, fresh and radiant complexion. The skin looks luminous, fresh, and radiant.
Spots fade and it tightens the look of your pores. Above all, it has a 50 SPF protection.
Moreover, there are two powerful, potent natural active ingredients. Longoza boosts the regeneration of your skin cells. Opilia targets the chromatic balance of your skin.
Last, anti-aging and protective benefits help combat lines, dark spots, redness, and your skin’s lack luster glow.
If you are wondering about the sponge getting dirty, you don’t have to. First, Rubycell Technology is used to create the applicator sponge. In other words, it is antimicrobial and antibacterial. However, you can never be too clean. Therefore, it won’t hurt to wash your sponge with mild soap and lukewarm water.
Dior Dream Skin Fresh Perfect Cushion Last But Not Least……
First, I loved the look of my skin. My face looked smooth, and poreless. Moreover, it blurred my lines and wrinkles. The tone of my skin looked even. Furthermore, my skin looked like I had it airbrushed. Above all, the Cushion is approximately 80% skincare to 20% makeup.
Sunscreen is a biggie, because you can carry the compact with you and apply it over your makeup. As a result, you can have your sun protection all day long. I do like the little bit of sheer coverage because my skin looks airbrushed.
However, if you need to cover pimples, you may need to use some concealer. A cushion is rarely a replacement for your foundation. Therefore, you can use the cushion as a blurring primer, and put your foundation on top of it. And, throughout the day, you can touch up with your cushion, and put it on top of your foundation. All cushions are not created equal. The Dior Cushion is more a filter than a makeup because it has filter-like effects.
Therefore, if you want the fresh dewy skin that Meghan Markle has, this is the perfect cushion for you. Let me know if you have tried a cushion? Did you like it? Please tell me your experience in the comments below. Or, just stop by to say hi!
