According to Dior, the formula is “highly concentrated with illuminating pigments” that gives you a “radiantly luminous complexion.” There’s not a lot to infer either way about pigmentation, but in general, the Diorskin Nude Air products are touted for natural, lighter looks, which tends to be code for sheerer. #001 has medium coverage, which is somewhat buildable, but it is such a close color to my actual skin tone that it’s hard to distinguish coverage when I’ve applied it as a highlighter (as it is blended out)! The texture was firm in the pan, smooth to the touch with a slight dryness on the brush (liked baked and hybrid gel-powder formulas), but it sat on the skin well and did not emphasize pores or the skin’s natural texture. I liked it, but it’s very dupable (even within past Dior releases), so whether it’s a must-have or not will depend on your stash. I really think it’s just a re-release of the Nude (002) from earlier this year; it’s at most, slightly more golden than #001. On me, the powder wore well for eight hours.

Dior Intemporalle Blush ($65.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a light pink with warm undertones and a satin finish. NARS Myth (LE, $30.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Laura Mercier Sunset (LE, $24.00) is warmer (95% similar). MAC What I Fancy (LE, $22.00) is brighter, darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Kat Von D Poe (Light) (P) is darker (90% similar).

Chanel Sakura (87) (LE, $45.00) is warmer, darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

It’s a new, limited edition blush that’s supposed to give a “vibrant veil of coral and fresh pink” color. It seemed to have three colors–a very light ivory, coral, and a light-medium pink with a thin, somewhat chalky feel. There was a general dryness, and it seemed to sit on the surface of the skin without melding with it as well as other Dior blushes/highlighters have in the past. It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque color coverage. I think it will work best for fairer skin tones, as the white base may turn ashy on deeper skin tones (I did not find it flattering on me, and I am light-medium to medium due to the stronger white base color). It lasted for seven hours on me before fading.

Dior Minimalism, Cosmopolite, Front Row Diorshow Eyeshadows

Dior Diorshow Eyeshadows
Dior Diorshow Eyeshadows

Dior Diorshow Eyeshadow ($29.50 for 0.07 oz.) is a new (well, reformulated) powder eyeshadow formula that’s supposed to be “super-saturated” that is “long-lasting.” Since Dior has been pretty hit or miss with their powder eyeshadows lately, I only bought three to try. They are decent to good; not particularly impressive but not misses either. Two of the three shades were on the powdery side, as they were so soft and loosely pressed in the pan, while one was much denser and more cream-like (which, in turn, applied better to bare skin). Two had decent pigmentation but not fully opaque and not buildable either.

Dior Minimalism (554) Diorshow Eyeshadow ($29.50 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, medium taupe with subtle, warm undertones and a satiny sheen. It was blendable but somewhat prone to sheering out due to the softer, more powdery texture. It had semi-opaque color payoff, and the eyeshadow wore for six and a half hours before fading noticeably. Buxom Frosted Pewter (LE, $12.00) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). Urban Decay Grip (LE, $19.00) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Noblesse Oblige (LE, $19.50) is more shimmery (85% similar). LORAC Navy #5 (LE, $19.00) is warmer, lighter (85% similar). MAC City Beat (LE, $16.00) is warmer, lighter (80% similar). Chanel Mystere #3 (LE) is warmer, darker (80% similar). Stila Stone (LE, $18.00) is warmer, more shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Cosmopolite (658) Diorshow Eyeshadow ($29.50 for 0.07 oz.) is a medium, golden brown with warm undertones and a frosted sheen. It was richly pigmented with a dense, more cream-like consistency that felt almost wet to the touch. It applied and adhered well to bare skin, and while it was fully opaque on, it still blended out easily. This shade lasted for seven and a half hours on me before creasing slightly. MAC Enchanted Forest (LE, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). NARS Himalia (P, $29.00) is lighter, more shimmery (95% similar). MAC Tea Leaves (LE, $22.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Spiked Cider (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Givenchy Palette Ors Audacieux #2 (LE) is cooler (90% similar). Urban Decay Sidecar (P, $19.00) is cooler, less shimmery (90% similar). Tarte Reef (LE) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Lucid Dream (LE, $28.00) is cooler, less shimmery (90% similar). Too Faced Crisp Apple Strudel (LE, $16.00) is cooler (90% similar). Ciate Happy (LE) is cooler (90% similar). Tarte Firecracker (P) is darker (90% similar). MAC Soft Steel (LE, $22.00) is cooler, darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Dior Fire (584) (P, $29.50) is warmer, lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). MAC Quiet Type (LE, $16.00) is darker (85% similar). Natasha Denona Satin Tan (58P) (P, $29.00) is cooler, lighter, less shimmery (85% similar). Make Up For Ever ME644 Iced Brown (P, $21.00) is warmer, less shimmery (85% similar). Stila Thought (P) is warmer, lighter (85% similar). Tarte Vixen (LE) is cooler, less shimmery (85% similar). NARS Tan Lines (LE, $29.00) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar). Giorgio Armani Cold Copper (09) (P, $39.00)(85% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Front Row (756) Diorshow Eyeshadow ($29.50 for 0.07 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark purpled taupe with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. As you can tell from the swatch, it’s quite powdery and loose, so it is prone to fall out and does sheer out a little bit. The color applied better than anticipated, though, and had good color payoff despite the softer texture. The color started to fade after six and a half hours of wear. MAC Tendersmoke (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Buxom Patent Leather (P, $12.00) is cooler, lighter, more shimmery (90% similar). Viseart Vendome (P) is warmer (90% similar). Ardency Inn Disco (P, $21.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Marc Jacobs Beauty The Free Spirit No. 6 (LE) is lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). Cle de Peau Baby Universe #3 (P) is less shimmery (80% similar). LORAC Soft Plum (LE, $19.00) is lighter (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Shock, Cruise, Diorosphere Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss

Dior Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss
Dior Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss

Dior Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss ($30.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) was recently reformulated and released in several shades, some familiar from past formulations (Dior seems to update their lip ranges every couple of years). The formula is supposed to be sheer, hydrating, glossy, and plumping using “hyaluronic acid spheres that capture and retain surrounding water … [so lips] appear full with lasting moisture.” I can’t really tell the difference between this formula and past ones in the range; it’s a semi-sheer to semi-opaque formula (from what shades I bought) with a very smooth, lightweight texture that is comfortable to wear, lightly hydrating, and shiny. The non-sticky texture and smooth, gel-like feel are the two highlights of the formula, as they’re just easy to wear and throw on. The formula wore between three and four hours for me. I didn’t notice any scent or taste. They come in three types–sparkling, watery, and iridescent–with varying levels of shimmer and color.

Dior Shock (465) Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss ($30.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a sheer, pink-tinged base with light pink and silver sparkle. It has a “sparkling” finish according to the brand. It accentuated the natural pink tones of my lips while adding evenly dispersed sparkle and glossy shine. The gloss was comfortable to use and wear, though it lasted for two and a half hours. The formula was lightly hydrating while worn. Maybelline Blushing Petal (505) (P, $8.99) is more shimmery (90% similar). Chanel Charming (LE, $30.00) is cooler (90% similar). MAC Pagoda (P, $20.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Dior Dolly Pink (453) (P, $29.50) is warmer, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Cruise (676) Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss ($30.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and fine, pink pearl. It has a “watery” finish. The color payoff was semi-sheer–a noticeable amount of color (at least on my lips) but not enough to fully cover, so your natural lip color may alter the way this looks compared to how it looks on me. The texture was a little thinner and didn’t leave my lips looking as smooth as some of the other shades did. This shade wore for three hours on me but was hydrating. Chanel Pinctada (214) (LE, $30.00) is brighter, lighter (95% similar). MAC Ceremonial (LE, $20.00) is darker (95% similar). MAC Bubble Butt (LE, $15.00) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). Dior Hollywood (688) (P, $35.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Electric Violet (P, $24.00) is cooler, more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Vibrant Vibe (P, $22.00) is brighter (90% similar). Maybelline Mystical Magenta (610) (P, $8.99) is warmer, darker (85% similar). Sephora Glossy Pink (16) (P, $12.00) is more pigmented, brighter, lighter (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Diorsphere (996) Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss ($30.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a medium-dark, plummy purple with light pink and silver sparkle. It has a “sparkling” finish. The coverage was semi-sheer with enough tint to be noticeable but let a lot of the natural lip color come through. It applied evenly and had a smooth, lightweight consistency that was comfortable to wear. This shade wore for three and a half hours and was moisturizing. Sephora Pretty Princess (LE, $14.00) is warmer (90% similar). NARS Oasis (DC, $25.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

I didn’t notice any scent or taste. They come in three types–sparkling, watery, and iridescent–with varying levels of shimmer and color.

Dior Diorama (785) Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss ($30.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a soft, medium rosy pink with warm undertones and white sparkle. It has an “iridescent” finish. The consistency had a milkier quality to it, which yielded more opaque coverage with a little bit of color settling into lip lines, but I did not find it overly noticeable from a normal viewing distance (only close-up). The texture was smooth, lightweight, and hydrating over time. The color lasted for three hours. Lancome Magnetic Mauve (04) (P, $22.00) is darker, more shimmery (90% similar). NARS Baby Doll (P, $26.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). MAC Sweet Tooth (LE, $20.00) is cooler, less shimmery (90% similar). Bobbi Brown Pink Sorbet (P, $24.00) is cooler (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Ever Dior (643) Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss ($30.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium-dark reddish-coral with warm, gold micro-glitter. It had semi-sheer color payoff, which applied evenly and smoothly over the lips, giving them a natural tint/appearance. Despite it seeming more coral in the tube and swatched, the pink tones of my natural lip color made it so the gloss looked like a pink-coral overall–obviously the sheerness of the formulation will make these glosses appear differently from person to person as a result. It has a “sparkling” finish. The gloss lasted for four hours and was comfortable and hydrating while worn. Dior Pink Excess (663) (LE, $29.50) is brighter, lighter (95% similar). Make Up For Ever 205P Pearly Rose (P, $19.00) is warmer, brighter (90% similar). Becca Watermelon/Opal (P, $24.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). Guerlain Nahema Smack (P, $30.00) is warmer, darker (90% similar). Guerlain Frizzy Mango (LE, $32.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Revlon Papaya (P, $7.49) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Maybelline Pearlescent Peach (520) (P, $8.99) is brighter, lighter (90% similar). Chanel Sahara (610) (LE, $30.00) is cooler, lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). NARS Risky Business (P, $26.00) is more shimmery (85% similar). MAC Bright Pink Bouquet (LE, $28.00) is warmer, darker, more shimmery (85% similar). Dior Paradise (732) (P, $29.50) is warmer, darker (80% similar). Revlon Kiss Me Coral (P, $7.99) is warmer (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Dior Cosmic (656) Dior Addict Ultra-Gloss ($30.00 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is a brighter, medium pinky-coral with warm undertones and fine, pink pearl. lines along my bottom lip. It has an “iridescent” finish. It had semi-opaque color payoff–one of the most pigmented shades I bought–with less obvious, finer shimmer than the other shades. It applied fairly evenly, though some of the color seemed to accentuate lip. This shade wore for four hours and was moisturizing while worn. Cle de Peau Deco (16) (P, $48.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). Burberry Cameo Pink (P, $29.00) is more shimmery (90% similar).
