Dior Rosewood Glow Dior Forever Couture Luminizer Review & Swatches
Rosewood Glow (05)
Dior Rosewood Glow (05) Dior Forever Couture Luminizer ($48.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy copper with subtle, warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It was richly pigmented with a smooth, moderately-dense texture that was slightly firmer but not stiff to work with. I had no trouble picking up product with a moderately-dense brush–it was more yielding in product than I expected given its gel-powder feel.
The highlighter applied evenly to bare skin and diffused well along the edges, almost blending itself, and left a seamless finish behind. This shade was quite reflective, so it times, it appeared almost to be a duochrome as the base was darker but the shine so intense that it looked lighter in places (like my cheek bone). It wore well for eight and a half hours before fading noticeably.

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.

What a gorgeous glow this gives off! If I didn’t have CP Might Be, I would buy this in a hot minute!
I think it would make a nice eyeshadow too!
Very pretty. I have the Modern Mercury dupe – both the original and the re-release.
