I don’t know if there is any other category of cosmetics that sends my heart as a flutter as highlighters. My facial structure certainly doesn’t do them justice, but there is something about beholding a new highlighter for the first time that is just so awe inspiring. The new Dior Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer Shimmering Sculpting Powder in 001 ($68 CAD) is a highlighter that most certainly takes your breath away.
The powder formula is exquisite. There is absolutely no powder kick up and it has a silky smooth texture. Not a buttery and creamy powder feel but rather a light, airy, silky texture. When I first looked at the shade in the pan I feared it would be strongly metallic but the illuminating pigments meld with the skin for a naturally luminous finish. You can easily apply a delicate amount for a natural radiance or build it up for a more intense sheen. The shade is meant to be universally flattering on all skin tones and I can see it being exactly so. It is a slightly peachy champagne shade that is just beautiful. I think this is going to become a quick favourite!
I have swatched the Dior Nude Air Luminizer below, heavily on the left, and applied and blended into the skin lightly with a brush on the right.
Are you excited about this new highlighter. I think it’s a true stunner!
