Dior #003 is a moderately warm-toned, light-medium copper with a pearl finish. It is a limited edition highlighter that retails for $53.00 and contains 1 oz.
Dior #003 Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer Serum ($53.00 for 1.00 fl. oz.) is a muted, medium golden copper with warm undertones and faint pink and gold pearl. It was very sheer on its own, and when blended, I could barely detect any shimmer or sheen on my skin. It blended out decently but still had a tendency to lift and turn patchy if applied over any foundation (bare skin was fine, as there was nothing to disturb or lift)! When I tried to mix it in with my foundation, it seemed to cause it to separate more and break down faster (by about two hours) but had such barely-there effect that I would reach for so many other products in lieu of it or else use a dewier foundation. On its own, it seemed to last around six hours.
The formula is supposed to be a "highlighter serum" that be used alone, with foundation, and applied all-over the face. There are four shades (I only purchased two--I only saw two when I picked them up at Selfridges!) that seem to correspond with the Diorskin Nude Air powder highlighters in terms of the shade range. The formula has a thin, watery feel with a lot of slip that was harder to blend out without it blending out to almost nothing. It was also heavily scented with a powdery, floral fragrance that was overwhelming and noticeable for hours on the face.
Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer Serum brings out the natural radiance of sun-kissed skin, illuminated with an iridescent glow. A true highlighter in a serum, this enhancing fluid has a high concentration of blurring agents and brightening pigments that create a satiny finish. Get the instant healthy glow of a summer's day!.
