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.
