Hey Friends! have you been stalking the Sephora website lately? men… the Beauty Insider Event is still going on, but not for long though. It’s gonna be just until tomorrow, so better check your wish list before it’s too late. But anyways, the holidays are coming and for sure there will be some deals here and there. Who wouldn’t wanna treat ourselves once in a while? Here’s a Dior beauty you may wanna try while taking advantage of the beauty sales that’s been happening lately.
I’m a huge highlighter junkie and mind you, the highlighter trend saga is here to stay for a very long time, and it’s just gonna get better. I know everybody wants that glow from within even if it’s chilly and gloomy outside, so here’s the highlighter that I’ve been so in love lately – the Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer (0.21 oz for $56). For quite some time now, I’ve been dying to have at least one of these highlighters. Every time I’m at Sephora I always try to rub my fingers on these and they felt so soft and so tempting to buy. Just that gorgeous glow really made my heart skip a bit. LOL. But I was a bit put off because of the price, after all, it’s Dior.
Anyways, when the first Sephora VIB Rouge sale came, just about a week ago, I knew I’ve got to get my hands on these. I decided on two colors that I think would look really great on my skin. Since then, I’ve been using these non-stop, day and night, haha!
001 Nude Glow – A very natural and universally-flattering shade. I believe this is the shade to have if you’re just planning to get one of these Dior Nude Air Luminizers. Also, it works really well for any skin tone, so you can’t go wrong with this golden-pearl natural soft shimmer.
002 Pink Glow – A nice pearly pink shimmer if you have a fair to light or light to medium skin tone. My complexion really pulled this off, and I tend to use this if I wanted a bit more glow than the natural Nude Glow Luminizer above.
The two shades that I didn’t purchase were the; 003 Golden Glow, which a Midas touch kind of gold shimmer, and the 004 Bronzed Glow, which is a true bronze shimmer and a lot darker than my skin tone.
Don’t expect a blinding highlight with these. No, you’re not gonna cause a traffic accident, just a soft natural lit from within kind of look. The kind that commands a subtle stare whenever you pass by. You can pretty much use any brush to apply these, but I love the mini kabuki brush that came with these highlighters. It’s so soft and it really hugs the shape of my cheeks. Sometimes, I even use Rihanna’s Fenty Cheek-Hugging Highlight Brush (reviewed HERE) to get a more dramatic effect out of these highlighters. Speaking of the packaging, oh my, each compact is neatly packed and comes with a free velvet pouch for storing, aside from the cute mini kabuki brush that works wonders.
Compared to other popular highlighters out there, I’d say, these Diorskin Nude Air Luminizers are definitely up there in the ranks of the top must-have highlighters. If you compare it to Becca Shimmering Skin Perfector Pressed Highlighters (reviewed and swatched HERE) I feel like the Dior Nude Air Luminizers are even way softer and has a very natural sheer effect. The Becca’s are really buildable for that dramatic glow, while the Dior’s are great for an everyday natural dewy look. Compared to Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder, hmmm, hard to tell, I feel like they’re pretty much the same in terms of their sheerness and natural soft glow effect. But anyway, whichever you’ll try among these three, I’m pretty sure you’re gonna like the way you look. I Guarantee it.
Stay glowy my friends!
