Dior | Capture Dreamskin Fresh & Perfect Cushion: Review and Swatches
Earlier this year, Dior released a range of cushion compacts described as a complexion perfector. Featuring a super hydrating formulation that blurs and brightens, the Capture Dreamskin Fresh & Perfect Cushion ($99 CAD for 2 x 15 g) may just be your new best friend. To read my review and see some before and after swatches, click......

Packaging:
The Capture Dreamskin Fresh & Perfect Cushion comes in a standard refillable cushion compact. The compact has a pearlescent pink finish and while it's feminine and well-made, the embossed serif font on the lid feels a bit old-school and detracts from the overall aesthetic. Each cushion contains an extra refill and cushion applicator so you are getting a total of 30 g of product and two applicators.

Formulation:
Available in a non-tinted shade and four tinted shades, the Capture Dreamskin Fresh & Perfect Cushion is described as a "skincare compact" that hydrates and minimizes discoloration and the appearance of fine lines. Key ingredients include blurring mica, brightening Longoza flower extract, and balancing Opilia shrub extract. The formulation also contains a combination of chemical and physical sunscreen; however, due to Canadian sunscreen regulations, the cushion is not advertised to provide any SPF despite a promise of SPF 50 on international markets.

Therefore, the Dreamskin Fresh & Perfect Cushion in "000 Non-Tinted" is essentially a liquid sunscreen cushion. Although the formulation doesn't provide any coverage, it still gives a sheer pink porcelain tint that lots of Asian women will love. The formulation has a subtle floral fragrance and the texture is thin and lightweight. Upon application, the cushion feels instantly refreshing and hydrating. The complexion looks noticeably brighter and pores and lines are slightly minimized. Additionally, the cushion has a very natural finish that's not too dewy. I tested out "000 Non-Tinted" under my powder foundation and although it looked very good for the first few hours, there were noticeable settling and creasing as the day went on. Therefore, I'm not sure how it will layer with other complexion products, especially if you have oily skin like me. Fortunately, I had a much better experience with the tinted shade below.

"010 Ivory" is a light ivory with neutral undertones. Although noticeably more pigmented as compared to the non-tinted shade, "010 Ivory" is still quite sheer, which may be why Dior did not describe this as a cushion foundation. However, the product is buildable so you can definitely get some coverage with a few layers. When topped with a powder foundation, the cushion provides just the right amount of coverage for a natural, everyday look. As alluded to above, "010 Ivory" had a much better wear. There were minimal settling and creasing and even when there was noticeable fading by the end of the day, the finish didn't get cakey or patchy.

In conclusion, I would definitely recommend the Capture Dreamskin Fresh & Perfect Cushion (tinted shades only) for those looking for a natural, hydrating cushion compact that provides a subtle, sheer coverage. The super refreshing, lightweight, and non-greasy formulation is comfortable all day and the SPF 50 protection is a huge bonus!
