Pink Glow (002)
Dior Pink Glow (002) DiorSkin Nude Luminizer ($48.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a very light pink with warmer undertones and a metallic sheen. This shade had a slightly stronger sheen compared to others in the formula, though most can be used more sheerly for a less luminous finish or built up for greater shine. This highlighter was intensely pigmented with a smooth, blendable consistency that was firmly pressed in the pan, so there wasn’t any powderiness, but it yielded well to my brushes for good product pick up . The powder applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with almost no effort at all and didn’t seem to accentuate my skin’s natural texture. The color lasted well for eight and a half hours on me before it started to fade a bit.

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.
