Besides the downright stunning packaging, Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer comes with it’s own mini kabuki brush and opens up to a beautifully embossed powder inside. You can catalogue this into the category of ‘too pretty to use’ – much like most of Dior’s products. The powder itself applies silky smooth with a stunning luminous finish minus glitter or sparkle in a beautiful peachy beige shade with a subtle gold shift. I struggle sometimes picking the right undertone for my highlighter (too pink vs too gold) but this has the most perfect, neutral tone that goes with both warm and cool looks!
Unlike some highlighting powders that apply so intensely that you have instant ‘seen from space’ status, Nude Air Luminizer is buildable, allowing you to start at subtle and gear up to full blown sheen. Personally, this is my favourite type of highlighting or glow product; At 33 I don’t have the flawlessly smooth skin I once had, and texture + shimmer = not so pretty. The adaptability of something that gives more of a sheen or gloss to the skin, rather than metallic shimmer is worth everything when you don’t have 100% flawless complexion to start with!
As mentioned, there is a mini kabuki brush that comes packaged with this compact, and while it is totally decent and usable as a brush, it’s not my brush of choice to apply highlighter (I much prefer a fan brush or a loosely packed fluffy brush). I personally would have preferred that Dior didn’t package them together and inevitably charge more because of it. At $68 CND, this is most definitely a splurge item; I would have liked to see it priced around $54 and not have the brush.
In the beginning, I was mostly just in awe of the packaging of this product; It would look pretty on any vanity and even prettier pulling out of a handbag at a special event or occasion. The product inside however is really worth writing home about! There’s that timeless saying: “You only get what you pay for” and this is definitely the case of getting a premium quality product for a premium price. If you love using kabuki brushes (they are great for buffing in bronzer, powder foundation, or keeping in your purse due to their compact nature!) then it might even become more justifiable springing for it.
Oh and if you don’t feel the need to justify purchasing this stunning beauty for yourself, then glow on girl!
