We tried an USD 82 Untinted Cushion Compact and Here’s What We Thought
Dior’s promise with regard to the $82 cushion compact is quite ambitious: 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.
The $82 may be quite steep but for that price, you get the compact and two refills. The idea of an untinted cushion kind of defeats the purpose in my opinion. But Dior is strong in the skin care category so I was very optimistic about this.
Dior Capture Dreamskin Fresh & Perfect Cushion Broad Spectrum SPF 50 does disappoint. I used it as a primer and sunscreen under foundation and within days, I could feel a difference in the texture of my skin. I had been having mini breakouts on my chin and they disappeared after a week.
The cushion wasn’t exactly untinted because like most products with high SPF, this one was whitish and had flashback. I loved the finish although I wouldn’t wear it on its own.
Also, in order not to waste any product, I used it with a stippling brush instead of the sponge provided with the product.
Would I repurchase? If I can afford it, yes.
