My newest obsession is the Diorskin Nude Shimmer Instant Illuminating Powder, and it will likely be a summer favorite of mine as the weather gets warmer and warmer here in Texas. As I’m not really a bronzer kind of person, this product is a great in-between kind of product…and most of all, the packaging is just to die for.
The Diorskin Nude Shimmer Instant Illuminating Powders come as a mini kit — boxed in with the powder, a kabuki brush, and velour pouch. I find that it’s an excellent deal for a highend product that comes with a brush that you can actually use.
The Diorskin Nude Shimmer Instant Illuminating Powders are designed to “provide you with a subtle combination of shimmer and pigment, recreating the effect of nude skin bathed in freshness. With one stroke of the Kabuki brush, your skin blushes gently, catching the light and revealing a sculpted face.” This powder “features a subtle combination of mother-of-pearl and pigments,” and can be “used as a light veil on the rounded areas of the face to catch the maximum amount of light and create a naturally dazzling glow.”
What’s unique about this product is that it can be blush/highlighter/bronzer to a certain extent. For those with fair skin, like me, using it concentrated on the cheeks as a blush is stunning and really beautiful. It glows on the cheeks without looking glittery or too pearly. As a highlight, you can use this along your cheekbones in conjunction with a blush. Because there’s few bronze tones in the product, it imparts a healthy glow without looking dark and muddy on the skin. It’s a perfect way to apply bronze tones into your routine if you’re deathly afraid of bronzers like me.
The pigment of Rose 001 is light and needs to be built up using a soft blush brush. I don’t mind this process because I tend to be heavy-handed on accident anyway, so it’s nice to dust this product on and tailor it to my mood. The “unique harmonies that adapt to all skin tones and all types of light” are a part of the “adaptable Mineral Prisms” and “reflective mother-of-pearl” technology behind this product. Since the product is designed to be used to “catch the light,” I love everything about this product since it’s beautiful and multi-functional.
A bonus with these powders it the kabuki brush is comes with. It’s small but fits perfectly with highlighting since most kabuki brushes can be too big. The brush is soft and of good quality, which makes this product, in my opinion, truly worth it. Check out Ommorphia Beauty Bar’s post here for another look at this illuminating powder.
