Dior Expose High Fidelity Eyeshadow Palette ($62.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a new, permanent eyeshadow palette that features earth-toned neutrals. I spotted in on Selfridges last week and purchased mine there, but it’s now available through Dior’s website and some of the accompanying new palettes are at Sephora (but not all). It features a new formula that’s supposed to have “highly pigmented” color with “spectacular staying power.” The formula was better than some of the past iterations from Dior, though it was still more semi-opaque to opaque in coverage but had seven to eight-hour wear. The big difference that I noticed was in the texture; it was firmer (but not stiff) in the pan and had less dustiness than some of the past formulations.

Dior #003 Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer Serum ($53.00 for 1.00 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium golden copper with warm undertones and faint pink and gold pearl. It was very sheer on its own, and when blended, I could barely detect any shimmer or sheen on my skin. It blended out decently but still had a tendency to lift and turn patchy if applied over any foundation (bare skin was fine, as there was nothing to disturb or lift)! When I tried to mix it in with my foundation, it seemed to cause it to separate more and break down faster (by about two hours) but had such barely-there effect that I would reach for so many other products in lieu of it or else use a dewier foundation. On its own, it seemed to last around six hours.

The formula is supposed to be a “highlighter serum” that be used alone, with foundation, and applied all-over the face. There are four shades (I only purchased two–I only saw two when I picked them up at Selfridges!) that seem to correspond with the Diorskin Nude Air powder highlighters in terms of the shade range. The formula has a thin, watery feel with a lot of slip that was harder to blend out without it blending out to almost nothing. It was also heavily scented with a powdery, floral fragrance that was overwhelming and noticeable for hours on the face.

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.

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.

Dior Color Gradation Collection for Spring 2017

Dior Color Gradation Collection for Spring 2017

Peter Philips’ new makeup collection for Dior Beauty, “Colour Gradation,” is an inspired take on the perpetual movement of nature, fueled by the ephemeral colors that blossom in spring. Philips’ carefully selected color palette features many playful shade variations—from fresh blues to juicy pinks—which can be worn alone or layered to softly structure the face.

The rich history of the House of Dior is apparent throughout the spring 2017 “Colour Gradation” collection. From the iconic plissé pattern featured in the new blush and eye palettes, to the avant-garde shades of crisp lemon, deep turquoise, and intense pink of the new nail shades, each product is decidedly Dior. Cheeks glow with a soft flush, while eyes build in shade and color. Intense hues mix with subtle highlights for a perfect balance. The shades and textures seem to move across the face with the grace of a couture gown.
