Soft Bronze (03)
Dior Soft Bronze (03) Dior Forever Natural BronzeDior Soft Bronze (03) Dior Forever Natural Bronze ($48.00 for 0.31 oz.) is a muted, light-medium brown with warm, pinkish-peach undertones and a matte finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied evenly to bare skin (or over foundation) and blended out almost effortlessly.
The powder felt smooth and velvety to the touch with light powderiness in the pan, but it didn’t appear dry or powdery on my skin–it seemed to meld particularly well. It stayed on well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

It is supposed to be a powder brush that is long-wearing and "blends seamlessly" to yield a "natural healthy glow." They had semi-opaque to opaque, buildable color coverage with a particularly smooth, velvety consistency that looked almost cream-like applied to skin, yet was slightly powdery in the pan. The product applied beautifully to bare skin as well as over foundation and was particularly easy to blend out.
The bronzers had a slightly denser consistency, but they were yielding, which ensured a variety of brushes could be used to pick up product--fan brushes to dense, large bronzing brushes--for different levels of coverage or application methods. Applied, the blended bronzer looked like a natural matte: no visible shimmer or shine, but it wasn't flat or dry, and it didn't emphasize my skin's natural texture (e.g. dryness/flakiness). The formula lasted nicely for eight hours on me before showing signs of fading.
