Dior has been actively adapting to the new cushion compact trend led by the Amore Pacific company and they've even launched three different types of cushion compacts in less than 2 years. This is certainly fascinating to me as there has been no other such determined and invested western company in cushion compacts. Korean beauty companies are in a different context as the cushions have settled as almost like a norm there now, ie. they make enough profits as there's a high demand. Nevertheless, what I can assume from Dior's move is that they probably saw huge success after launching their initial cushion compacts last year both in the East and the West.
Well, you may think that I sound a bit too confident, but I should admit that Dior CC cushions have their own unique style in the texture and the finish that helps their products to stand out from other western companies. To be honest, I was very surprised about those unique characteristics as I expected them to be more Amore Pacific-like due to the collaboration. Anyways, I've given pretty much all positive reviews on Dior CC cushions previously, but it came to my mind that some of you may be still be contemplating which one to get. So here we are, I hope you find this post comprehensive enough for your decision making :).
