Pearlescent Glow (03)

Dior Pearlescent Glow (03) Dior Forever Couture Luminizer ($48.00 for 0.21 oz.) has a transparent base and was chocked full of bluish-white, iridescent micro-sparkle and finer pearl. It had a shiny, sparkling finish applied to my skin, which created a noticeable contrast and highlight but didn’t accentuate my skin’s natural texture.

The consistency felt smooth to the touch, firmer without being stiff, and picked up evenly with a moderately-dense highlighting or blush brush. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly and blended out with ease. This shade lasted nicely for eight hours before having some visible migration.

Formula Overview

$48.00/0.21 oz. - $228.57 Per Ounce

It was described as having a "multidimensional glow" that "blend[ed] seamlessly" and was long-wearing. The formula felt like it was a gel-powder formula, which was indicated by its slightly firmer, almost stiff, feel in the pan, but there was no powderiness, and the product picked up well with a moderately-dense brush. Once on, the powder almost "melted" on my skin, which gave it a particularly seamless look that was never dry or dusty.

The pigmentation ranged from shade to shade but were typically semi-opaque to opaque, buildable, and easy to work with by using a lighter or heavier hand to pick up product as desired. They lasted between eight and nine hours on me before fading visibly.

The powders were floral-scented.

I hate glitter in highlighters and after getting burned by Makeup by Mario’s Opal, I’m glad I skipped this one. I’m always interested in cool toned white highlighters but so many have glitter or iridescence, both of which are hard to see in photos.

Thank you for the review Christine..I have been an ardent follower of your blog from a decade almost….most reliable!! I love your earrings..May I know where is it from?

This one caught my attention. it’s super hard to find highlighters that don’t leave a colored base on my fair skin, but I’ve picked up enough with the kind of sparse sparkle/glitter effect over the years that I don’t need another. Much more interested in an amped up version of Becca’s shimmering skin perfector liquid in Pearl. Flesh’s Startle was pretty good, but discontinued.

Anyway, I don’t have a nice whitish/silvery powder highlighter and it looks like this one isn’t going to be it either.

It literally looks more “glossy” than blingy! And I love this softer effect. I do still have a TON of Ofra Glazed Donut to work through, though…

I have a problem, everyone. I’m really starting to fall for Dior’s cosmetics and this is just lovely.

No. I have too many highlighters to go through and I’ve done terrible on my low buy/no buy year. Absolutely failed it. I’d rather retain what dignity I have left and avoid more purchases, haha! But wow, tempting. I used to have a dupe, but not anymore!

Agreeing with others here. I had hoped this would be less glittery, more of a cool white satiny shimmer. Of course I did see glitter in the swatch posted earlier, so why I thought it would be at most shimmery I don’t know.
Not for me, this one.
