Review: Diorskin Crystal Nude Natural Matte Skin Perfecter

Holding a piece of Dior makeup in your hands is like holding a precious jewel. From the packaging details to the metal cartouche, you know that love and care has gone into every painstaking detail.

So when I received the new Diorskin Crystal Nude Natural Matte Skin Perfecter (a silicone-based primer) , I was instantly smitten, like cat to catnip. And the idea of a Natural Matte Skin Perfecter was something my skin certainly could use, especially during the harsh colder months.

The product claims to be “magical, with multiple uses,” and promises to:

a) Improve the texture of bare skin for a shine-free complexion with a sheer finish;

b) Be used as a finishing touch or for touch-ups over Nude foundations;

c) Set makeup and keep it looking fresh all day long, acting like a “seal” for your complexion;

d) Helps concentrated Mineralized Water on skin surface to optimize beneficial action.

What We Discovered

Since the Diorskin Crystal Nude is a mattifying product with silicone microspheres, I used it as a primer before my makeup. It’s supposed to create an optical effect, like a softening lens (and for the life of me, I couldn’t think of what a softening lens is supposed to do, but I assumed it was to minimize imperfections).

The result, according to the insert, should be a matte complexion fresh with an exquisite nude-skin sensation.

Now, I don’t have the greatest lighting in my boudoir, but I expected to see instant mattification and gratification, but I saw only minimal improvement to my skin texture and pore size. However, I do have to say that it makes an excellent primer for my Diorskin Nude Foundation, and sets makeup beautifully.

The bottom line is, for $42, I would invest in it for the following reasons:

a) It’s a compact primer. So chic and travel friendly, how could you not want it?

b) It sets makeup beautifully!

c) It is competitively priced: in comparison, Smashbox’s Photo Finish Foundation retails for $49.

Sold, to the mattifying nonbeliever!

Tell us, are you a DiorSkin Crystal Nude fan? Will you invest in this gem of a solid primer?

  1. Based on your review, I don’t think I would spend the money on this product. It seems similar to Benefit’s Dr. Feelgood, which has a much more reasonable price. Also, I didn’t care for the Benefit product and prefer a liquid primer, such as Sephora’s Smoothing Base. Thanks for the review!

  2. Rebecca, thanks for sharing your thoughts and other primer recommendations with us. It’s a nice solid to transport while traveling, for sure, but I do agree that I’m slightly partial to my incredible Smashbox Photofinish.
