#004

Dior #004 Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer ($56.00 for 0.21 oz.) is deeper reddish bronze with warm undertones and a metallic finish. It had a much stronger red undertone and an almost rosy overtone, so it did not appear as orange or as warm-toned as some bronzy shades can. The powder was soft, smooth, and blendable and was easy to apply to the face. It was richly pigmented, and even though it had a high-shine finish, it did not seem to emphasize my skin’s natural texture when I wore it. The highlighter started to fade after eight hours of wear.

The Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer is designed to highlight, and it’s supposed to have a “highly-concentrated formula” with a “virtually imperceptible texture.” Each shade comes with a velvet pouch and mini kabuki brush. The brush was decent, but it was dense and larger than most highlighting brushes, so it was hard to apply the product precisely with it. The formula is comparable a lot of the recent highlighting powders that are denser, smooth without being powdery, and high-shine in finish.

#003

Dior #003 Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer ($56.00 for 0.21 oz.) is medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen. Of the four shades in the range, this one had more noticeble shimmer and sheen on the skin, and it emphasized my skin’s natural texture a bit even at medium coverage. It had opaque color coverage in a single layer, which was easy to blend out and diffuse for a softer effect. On me, the highlighter wore well for eight hours before fading.

Dior #002 Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer ($56.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a soft, light pink with warmer undertones and a metallic sheen. It was intensely pigmented–you really do not need much to obtain a noticeable glow!–with a smooth, blendable consistency that wasn’t powder or dusty at all. It was incredibly easy to apply, and while it the finish was nearly metallic, it did not emphasize my skin’s texture unless applied very heavily. The highlighter lasted for eight hours before fading on me.

Buddy

MAC x Caitlyn Jenner Buddy Powder Blush Duo ($33.00 for 0.35 oz.) consists of a rose with a matte finish and a shimmery plum. Swirled together, they create a pearly, rosy plum. The matte side wasn’t quite as good as the shimmery shade, but they were both decent to good blushes. The two shades work well together, layered, or worn alone, though the shimmery shade is narrow enough that most blush brushes would not fit well (without getting some of the matte shade on them).

Compassion

MAC x Caitlyn Jenner Compassion Mineralize Skinfinish Natural ($33.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark rosy brown with subtle, golden pearl. It’s part of the Mineralize Skinfinish Natural family, so it had noticeably less shimmer and was nowhere near as metallic on the skin as a result, but it wasn’t matte like the permanent range of Mineralize Skinfinish Natural powders either.

The finish is what made it a more standout product to me–it was luminous without being visibly shimmery on the skin. It had a soft, smooth consistency that was blendable and easy to work with, while it had full coverage in one layer, though it could easily be sheered out as well. It wore well eight hours on me before fading.
