Dior Nude Natural glow sculpting powder review

I bought this gorgeous powder 2 years ago and still have 1/3 left.  To be fair, I use it only on  special occasions.

Although I have enough makeup to last me 3 lifetimes, I never buy anything on a whim. I see it, I review it, then review it a bit more, sleep on it…and only then if I still want it, I buy it.  That way I make sure I don’t regret it. This expensive bulky case was no exception.

What Dior says:

First color palette compact foundation by Dior, DIORSKIN NUDE COMPACT combines three shades that recreate beauty in its every nuance. It offers incredible comfort and a unique makeup result thanks to its very specific formulation, which contains energizing Mineralized Water. When applied, the powder melts on the skin for a result as natural and satiny as a cream. The complexion is enhanced, luminous and ultra-natural. Mixed with the brush, the three shades make it possible to adjust the color for tailor-made makeup. Used separately, they emphasize the curves of the face and create sophisticated Nude Makeup.

What I say:

Oh, so true! It makes my skin glow amazingly…like my skin’s been photoshopped  😉 Comes in 4 shades, each shade containing 3 separate powders: highlighter, sculptor/blusher and unifier. Comes with a brush that is surprisingly useful! Although, given the hefty price tag, it better be!

PROS:

– medium – and buildable –  coverage

– a little goes a long way, thus lasting a long time

– stays evenly put in moderate climates (not in the summer though, but what does?!)

– covers redness and mild rosacea

– amazingly GLOWY, flawless skin without being too shimmery

– decent brush

– SPF 10

CONS:

– not perfect during summer – skin tends to get oily fast

– due to its decent coverage quite visible under direct sunlight

– may come as too shimmery if you apply too much (less is defo more!)

– might clog pores – it’s a mineral powder after all (titanium dioxide 2.97%)

– hefty price tag (around 50 euros in EU)

TIP:  apply using small circular movements holding the brush at the right angle (90 degrees towards the skin) so it gets into the pores evenly 😉

Would I repurchase?  YES!

If you’ve tried it, let me know what you think! ❤

You know those mornings when you’ve been working on your presentation until 4 am, managed to get 3 hours of sleep and you’re not 22 anymore so it’s visible…this is the perfect powder to make people believe you are, in fact, 22.
