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.
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.
