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.

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.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities!
