Fair Bronze (01)
Dior Fair Bronze (01) Dior Forever Natural Bronze ($48.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a medium peach with warm, slightly orange undertones and a matte finish. As the lightest shade in the brand’s new bronzer range, it was light to the point where it was better classified as a peach hue than brown (traditionally the color of bronzer).
The texture was smooth, velvety, and a smidgen powdery in the pan, but the product almost “melted” when applied to my skin to take on a more “natural matte” finish that didn’t appear dry or emphasize skin texture. It had mostly opaque, buildable coverage that could easily be diffused and blended out for a sheerer effect if desired. It wore well for eight hours before fading visibly.

It is supposed to be a powder brush that is long-wearing and "blends seamlessly" to yield a "natural healthy glow." They had semi-opaque to opaque, buildable color coverage with a particularly smooth, velvety consistency that looked almost cream-like applied to skin, yet was slightly powdery in the pan. The product applied beautifully to bare skin as well as over foundation and was particularly easy to blend out.
The bronzers had a slightly denser consistency, but they were yielding, which ensured a variety of brushes could be used to pick up product--fan brushes to dense, large bronzing brushes--for different levels of coverage or application methods. Applied, the blended bronzer looked like a natural matte: no visible shimmer or shine, but it wasn't flat or dry, and it didn't emphasize my skin's natural texture (e.g. dryness/flakiness). The formula lasted nicely for eight hours on me before showing signs of fading.
