Hey Friends! Have you been stalking the Sephora website lately? The Beauty Insider Event is still going on, but not for long though. It’s going to be just until tomorrow, so better check your wish list before it’s too late. But anyway, the holidays are coming and for sure there will be some deals here and there. Who wouldn’t want to 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 going to 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’m so in love with lately – the Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer (0.21 oz for $56). Every time I’m at Sephora, I always spot them and test them on my arms. 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 decided on two colors of these that I think would look really great on my skin. Since then, I’ve been using these non-stop, day and night.
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 don’t have are the; 003 Golden Glow, which is a Midas touch kind of gold shimmer, and the 004 Bronzed Glow, which is a true bronze shimmer and a lot darker than my skintone.
Don’t expect a blinding highlight effect from these. No, you’re not going to cause a traffic accident, just a soft natural lit-from-within kind of look. You can pretty much use any brush to apply these, but I love the mini kabuki brush that came with these compacts. 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, each compact is neatly packed and it 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 that everyday natural dewy look. When compared to the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder, hmmm, hard to tell, I feel like both are pretty much the same in terms of their sheerness and natural soft glow effect. But anyway, whichever you’ll try of all these, I’m pretty sure you’re going to like the way you look. I guarantee it 🙂
Stay glowy my friends!
