Universal (001)

Dior Universal (001) Backstage Face & Body Glow ($38.00 for 1.6 oz.) is a light, yellow gold with moderate, warm undertones and fine pearl that gave it a soft, luminous finish. It’s a thin, watery-gel of a liquid highlighter that can be used alone, all-over, and/or mixed with foundation, so the subtly of it on its own was as marketed.

It produced a soft, glowing finish with a touch of sheen but wasn’t overly wet and dried down for the most part. Mixed in with foundation or moisturizer, it could easily amp up the finish from matte to semi-matte to natural and lightly dewy. I didn’t find that it shortened the wear-time of my foundations, and it sat well over them without lifting up base products. On its own, the highlighter lasted for eight and a half hours before fading visibly.

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! Thank you for understanding!

The sheerness without it being too sheer to have an effect makes this one a winner in my book! It looks just right for a mixer or to use on high points like shoulders, decollete or collarbones.

I have this Dior body glow. I never thought about using this foundation in or with the body glow. Thank You, Thank You. I will do this tomorrow.

Christine excuse me for noticing the name on the Dior bottle. My cousin gave it to me to use on arms and shoulders. I feel like biggest nut on earth!!!!!!!!
