Dior have I expressed how much I adore you as of late? Your new Skinflash Primer captured and held my interest so I hauled you home in the hopes you’d lead me down the path of skin perfection nirvana.
Jump ahead to hear all about the new Dior Skinflash Primer!
So what is Dior Skinflash Primer?
It’s a radiance boosting makeup primer for skin. Think of how awesome Dior Skinflash Radiance Booster Pen is for your eyes and you have the general idea of what Dior Skinflash Primer is. Where as the booster pen preps and conceals your eye woes, the primer does the same for your face.
The product promises to freshen up your face and lay the foundation for a more radiant complexion. Housed in a click style pen with a large brush application you brush the primer on bare skin and go or you can prep skin for foundation using the same technique. It contains “Photo Smart Pigments” which attract the light and optimally diffuses it over your complexion to illuminate and highlight making dull, tired skin glow again.
Does it work?
Not really. By Terry has something similar but different in formula which wakes up dull, tired skin on the fly. I actually see better results with this than I do the Dior version. I’m chalking this fail up to the fact that my skin is currently sporting a little bit of a tan due to being outside while I was in California, yes even SPF 95 wasn’t enough to keep me from getting a little bit of a golden glow. So take my review here with a grain of salt as I may see better results when my skin goes back to it’s normal medium fair tone.
Now…my skin is all kinds of tired and dull lately. Could be my trip, could be the colder weather, change of season, etc…but it’s dull and tired. This really doesn’t do much to brighten it up nor does it create some perfect skin illusion. I just don’t see much in the way of results after use.
It’s a very moisturizing, light formula with a slightly creamy pearl finish. It doesn’t contain silicons of any kind so it’s fairly moist when applied and absorbs easily. It has a beautiful lemony, floral scent.
In regards the formula it’s a win, so is the packaging which makes application easy and flawless, but as for creating a beautiful canvas on my face, not so much. I didn’t notice much of a difference after application sadly.
Overall, I’m glad I purchased and will continue to use and hope for better results but so far it’s nothing to get too excited about.
