#002

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.

YAY! This is the one I ordered. I think it’s supposed to be delivered tomorrow. I was thinking it was something like a rose gold and not a true pink. Seems like your description also makes it seem warmer toned. I ordered it to replace my now almost used up rose gold MAC one from the Fairy launch. I considered the lightest shade (1) but since it said it was “universal” I’ve found with Dior that typically means “pulls yellow undertoned”. Am curious to see your review, assuming you are doing that shade as well.

Christine which one do you like more this one or the Jouer Rose Quartz?I am obsessed with Jouer it is so beautiful!But I don’t know if I will get this one since the Jouer is a dupe.It looks stunning on you!!

Oh, this is so pretty! I’ve been eyeing this for ages, glad to see it lives up to the hype/price tag. I’m thrilled to see that 004 is quite deep as well, this is definitely a versatile shade range (something luxury brands haven’t been very good at, in my opinion).

Oh this colour is absolutely striking! I know Dior has come out with a few variations of these and the colours have, mostly, stayed within a certain spectrum, but for whatever reason this is calling out my name!!

Part of me really wants this but I have the Glowing Gardens Pink powder from Spring and I’ve barely made a dent in it (I bought UD Aura so I could save the Dior powder “for special occasions” – so far, not much has been special enough 🙂 ) These are close to $70 here, so I am going to try to use some willpower! (but it won’t be easy!)

My problem is that even if I got the MUFE one, I’d probably still keep on craving THIS one too….I’m just greedy for pretty, pink, glowy stuff! Honestly – the only way I’m ever likely to keep my makeup buying in control is to stop coming here and that is not likely to happen!

So tried this out yesterday in store (all 4!)…. I need it! I prefer it over the MAKE UP FOR EVER Pro Light Fusion Highlighter #1 because it’s less pink and more natural looking (wet) on the skin. Waiting for a sale though. 😯

This is really lovely. I am going to get this for sure. I am enjoying all of the spring release from Dior. Can’t wait to see what else you are going to review.

It’s so pretty and looks beautiful on you, Christine. Love the lip color you’re wearing with it and your skin looks flawless. I was so hoping it was a finishing powder. I so don’t need another highlighter. But, this one is so tempting!!! It’s pink! And that packaging is my absolute favorite. Very glad it’s permanent.

PS That a really nice dupe analysis you’ve done. Very thorough. Thanks. I’d say this highlighter is a tad pinker and more metallic (more shimmery) than Dior Glowing Pink. But, they’re very close.

Oh, I remembered that last year Dior had released 1 (or 2?) Diorskin Nude Air(‘s), and that I loved it. Cannot recall the number or name exactly, but my hope is that one of these is a repromote of that one!
As for this one, it gives off a lovely soft glow. Not too metallic for my taste, but not much is, says the one who loves her CP Butterfly Beach!

I have been wanting something similar to the Dior Glowing Gardens #2 in Pink for a year! So I have gone ahead and ordered this! Good to see it got a glowing review as well, will be delighted to get it!

Thank you for posting pictures of the ingredients on the boxes – just compared the ingredients to the Make Up For Ever Pro Light Fusion #01 highlighter, and they are identically formulated (ingredients in same order too), not to mention MUFE and Dior are both owned by LVMH. Interesting…

Wow, same order even? That’s crazy. The two brands seem so distanced in terms of formulas in the past – but it is that same type of formula (also similar to MAC Extra Dimension, NARS Dual Intensity, Estee Lauder Gelee, etc.) and wonder if there’s just not much variation there.

They are similar to Extra Dimension – same type of formula – but the ABH highlighters in the Glow Kits have a different type of formula!

Considering how pink this is, Christine, do you think it will suit a warm medium skin tone? NC30? I do take note of the fact that you mentioned that it is warm toned…stilll…it is pink…

Hi! I am about to order either 001 or 002. Which would you recommend – I’m very fair, with blue eyes and brown hair. I want a natural look. I’ve read conflicting things as to which one would be best on my skin. I’m leaning towards 002, but thought I’d check with you before making the final decision. Thanks!

I definitely have cool undertones. I’m surprised that 001 would look better on cooler undertones – I have read comments that some believe it pulls yellow undertones. Sorry to ask the same question again, but I just want to be sure I read your comment correctly …so, if I have cooler undertones, I should order 001 (nude) over 002 (pink)? Thanks again!
