Product Review: Diorskin Nude Glow Healthy Glow Summer Powder
Fresh off the summer, many of us are probably in search of a product that will help maintain some of that bronze radiance. I rarely get excited about bronzers: They are either shimmer or matte and pretty much all look the same in the pan.
This product is interesting because it doesn't fall into either category: It is both shimmer and matte bronze tones woven together with highlight shades. The powder comes in two shades: Aurora (for fair complexions) and Sunset (for medium to deep skintones). What's ingenious is that the product imparts a radiance to the skin that isn't a bit frosty or muddy. The effect is an all over warming to the skin that mimics that first tan we get in the early days of summer. The powder contains four shades of bronze woven together; that variation is what gives the skin a more believable and dimensional glow.
It's best used like a beauty powder and brushed upon the high points of the face: It can be used for contouring, but because it isn't densely pigmented, I wouldn't recommend buying it for that. This is a limited edition item from Dior, but I was able to get it by asking a salesperson if they still had it in stock and they did. In a month or so, this may no longer be the case. The product retails for $44 and is .35 ounces.
