Holographic Glow (006)
Dior Holographic Glow (006) DiorSkin Nude Luminizer ($48.00 for 0.21 oz.) is an iridescent blue-to-violet sheen with very finely-milled pearl that gave a noticeable shine on my skin and subtle, cooler tint. I find this type of highlighter works particularly well paired blushes in shades of pink, berry, and plum (though play around, it can create quite the transformative shift!). The consistency was dense, a bit firm to the touch, but very smooth and finely-milled. It was easiest to apply it using a moderate hand and a standard, tapered highlighting brush and build it up from medium coverage to semi-opaque pigmentation. This shade stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

It's a new line of powder highlighters that are supposed to give the "face a multidimensional glow" with a "high concentration of shimmering pigments." It's an update on their previous Luminizers but with lighter-weight packaging (and no included brush, which wasn't anything to write home about anyway!) and a lower price.
The ingredient list seemed to be the same, and by touch, they seemed to be nearly the same--I felt like the updated version seemed a smidgen drier/more firmly pressed but it was barely noticeable and a couple were a little lighter/darker swatched but may simply have reflected more or less light in the particular shot as there was little difference on my skin. They had medium to opaque color coverage that applied well, lasted for eight hours, and blended out easily. The texture was denser, smooth to the touch, but firmer (so no powderiness) but require a moderately dense brush and/or medium hand to pick up product.
