I hope all you divas are enjoying a fab, couture-filled week. I certainly am, for if nothing else, I’ve been trying out a lot of new makeup and cosmetics, which is always so much fun! This review is based on my experience with the Dior Diorskin Nude Air Healthy Glow Invisible Loose Powder; here’s what I feel about it… The loose powder comes in an elegant box with a silver cap having the classic Dior quilted finish and brand-name embossing. The packaging is fairly sturdy and can be carried in your purse, but I think they could have made it more travel-friendly. It comes with a white puff which is great for fuss-free application, though I usually use a foundation brush, especially when putting it on at home.
Now coming to the powder itself; it’s incredibly light and airy so your skin will never feel cakey or heavy after application. It blends in with your foundation seamlessly, though on looking at it, you might think the powder is too pink or too pigmented for a subtle “barely-there” finish. But as you put it on, it’s completely sheer and locks in the base makeup wonderfully.What I love about this product is that is gives the face a nice matte finish, without drying out less oily areas like the cheeks. I don’t have to worry that the mattifying effect will leave my T-zone non-greasy but make the rest of my face look dull and lifeless; trust me, that happens with a lot of such products! There is one problem though – the powder is somewhat shimmery. And that’s okay if you’re wearing it on an evening out or to a party. But for office-wear, this may not be the ideal choice. I usually keep my makeup subtle at work and the distinctive sheen of this loose powder is hard to miss in well-lit rooms.
The bottom line is that I really like the subtle finish the Dior Diorskin Nude Air Healthy Glow Invisible Loose Powder offers; light and sheer, mattifying yet hydrating. But I mostly use it on special occasions and not for daily wear. I really wish Dior would come up with a non-shimmery variant of this loose powder so I could use it for more causal and official outings too.
Here is the pic of when I am wearing a very light dusting of this powder on my face. A lot more and my face lights up like a light bulb *wink* *wink*
