I went to the make up shop yesterday looking for a bronzer. I’ve been researching make up tips online and almost every blog or vlog mentions a bronzer and highlighter for sculpting your face and bringing out your cheekbones.
I ended up at the Dior counter and the SA tried out DiorSkin Nude Tan on me. Now this comes in 3 versions – Light, matte and Regular. The Light is a shaded disc with iridiscent properties and the Regular & Matte versions are solid pigmented colours. The regular version comes in 6 shades while the Light comes in only 4 shades and the matte in 2.
Given that my skin is dark and I didn’t want something too sparkly I chose the matte. This is part of DiorSkin’s Healthy Glow make up collection and has become quite a popular product.
Unfortunately, I didn’t check what the SA gave me in the bag and when I went home, I discovered that she had given me the DiorSkin Nude Tan Light. At least, the shade was close to what I wanted (Sunset) so I decided to try it out.
I was pleasantly surprised. The iridescent properties are not too sparkly and it gives a perfect hint of colour. Because the powder is fine milled, it goes on smooth and evenly on the skin. It is not very pigmented, so anyone looking for more colour should definitely try out the other one – DiorSkin Nude Tan. I may get that once I’m done with this.
I use this as a bronzer, under my cheekbones. But the colour is also perfect to use it as blush on occasion with a light hand. I don’t think that could be done with the regular one as the colour may be too dark for a blush.
It isn’t cheap but the disc is quite big with a lot of product. It comes with a nice pouch. It also comes with a lovely little kabuki brush that I am using.
