Diorskin Nude Luminizer ($48.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a new, powder highlighter that has been released in six shades. I’m guessing it’ll eventually replace the Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer range, as this new version has overlapping shades and comes in new, lighter-weight packaging (and no included buffer brush). They contain the same amount of product (0.21 oz.) but with the change in packaging and omission of the brush, they’re now priced at $48 instead of $56. I haven’t tested these much beyond swatching and quick applications, but they seem similar and a glance at the ingredient lists seemed to confirm that.

Cool Neutrals (002)

Dior Cool Neutrals (002) Backstage Eye Palette ($49.00 for 0.35 oz.) includes an eyeshadow primer and eight, powder eyeshadows in a mix of soft pinks and muted mauves. It’s the “cooler” toned palette (I bet the name gave that away), and given that there aren’t that many readily available cool-toned palettes, I can see it working well enough for the right person. It was better than the Warm Neutrals (001) variation, as it wasn’t quite as powdery and was more consistent in performance.

I don’t normally test eyeshadow with primer and have that reflected in the ratings not unless it’s explicitly stated to the contrary (e.g. the brand doesn’t make a claim that the eyeshadows are long-wearing and pigmented on their own). I do regularly test new formulations with and without primer so that I can pass on any insights to readers as a separate note (but it wouldn’t be reflected in the ratings).

I applied each shade with and without primer so that you’ll be able to see how they perform over Dior’s primer. Note: the very point of primer is to extend the wear of the eyeshadows, my rule of thumb (based on past average wear times of eye primers as Dior didn’t specify the length of wear beyond “long-wearing”) is 12 hours (this would equal a 10/10 score). The primer in this was decent but not particularly great, and I found it added texture to my lid.

Per the brand, it’s supposed to be an “all-in-one” palette that includes a primer that “provides long-lasting hold … [and] intensifies the effect of the color that will be applied over it.” The eyeshadows are supposed to be “buildable” (and designed to be “long-wearing yet richly pigmented”) and “blend beautifully” and “can be used as either eyeshadow or liner.” Without the primer, this palette would barely be worth reviewing; the formulation of the eyeshadows is very soft but powdery with some shades that were drier and on the dusty side.

The lighter shimmers I had to use with a dampened brush to get evenness and adhesion as the textures were dry and prone to sheering out with a moderate amount of fallout (even over the included primer) and left behind either no shimmer or little pigment. The mattes were better with a more blendable texture and more consistently pigmented, and they applied better over the primer.

Warm Neutrals (001)

Dior Warm Neutrals (001) Backstage Eye Palette ($49.00 for 0.35 oz.) includes an eyeshadow primer and eight, powder eyeshadows in a mix of subtly warm and moderately warm-toned hues across shimmer and matte finishes. This was the worst performer between the two variations of palettes that were released (just give me some time to write the other review;thank you for your patience!), though neither were impressive to me.

I don’t normally test eyeshadow with primer and have that reflected in the ratings not unless it’s explicitly stated to the contrary (e.g. the brand doesn’t make a claim that the eyeshadows are long-wearing and pigmented on their own). I do regularly test new formulations with and without primer so that I can pass on any insights to readers as a separate note (but it wouldn’t be reflected in the ratings).

Soft Sunlight (002)

Dior Soft Sunlight (002) DiorSkin Mineral Nude Bronze Bronzing Powder ($48.00 for 0.35 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy brown with warm undertones and a satin finish. It had a natural finish on my skin after it was buffed and blended onto my skin, as it was definitely not matte, but it wasn’t overtly shimmery either.

The texture was soft, smooth, and finely-milled with just a smidgen of powderiness in the pan (but not present on the skin). It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with a second layer, but it had the type of texture that was forgiving so I could use a lighter or heavier hand and achieve the coverage I preferred. It wore well for eight hours before starting to fade on me.

Formula Overview

$48.00/0.35 oz. - $137.14 Per Ounce

The newest iteration of the brand's powder bronzer is available in six shades. The formula is supposed to "enhance the complexion" with "golden or rosy hues [that] may be applied with varying intensity. Three shades have rosier tones (indicated by "Soft" in the shade name) and three shades have more golden tones (indicated by "Warm" in the shade name). The texture of the powders were excellent--soft, silky, and blendable--and easy to work with as I could easily use a lighter or heavier hand to achieve the right level of coverage, but I'd describe the coverage as semi-opaque in a single layer with a "normal" hand and bronzing brush (which are often denser). They lasted for eight hours on me.
