Everything from Diorskin Nude Air is already on my face! This is such a gorgeous collection from Dior and for the first time in years, I’ve found a powder that makes my skin look better, not worse. It’s an absolute revelation.
All the bronzers from Dior are up there with my favourites, but Diorskin Nude Air Tan is a re-invention of the sun powders, this time with the same Oxygen Activ ingredients that the rest of the Air collection contains.. more on that later. The tan comes with a brush that’s a very good quality and absolutely perfect for hugging the contours of your face – I did the pretty basis figure 3 shape using this and it just brings the complexion to life in a non-bronzy-more-warmth looking way. There are six shades which makes it pretty versatile – one for a spring warmth look and a deeper shade to enhance your tan if you are a tanner.
The star of the Diorskin Nude Air show is the Serum Foundation; talc free and with a water like texture. Once again, this uses the volative oil evaporation technique to leave a soft focus finish that runs to warm. Oxygen Activ is Dior’s new combination of plant oils (including cranberry which is full of air bubbles), vitamins and minerals. The finish is indeed, as claimed, weightless, and feels as though you’ve added a very light oil as a first step to you skin. There is no way you could describe this as oily though – think more along the serum lines and you have it. I expected coverage to be light, but I’d describe it more as medium level, with a dropper applicator.
As you can see, it starts off a different colour to how it ends up on the face once you’ve blended so I’d suggest that a tester before use would be a very good plan.
Most powders instantly make my skin look and feel dry – not so here. It really is the lighest and silkiest of powders that enhanced the look rather than deadened it. I might be a powder person after all! Dior claims that the powder prevents pollution on the skin – great! That’s just an added bonus.
There is nothing not to like in the Diorskin Nude Air collection – when it launches on 18th February, I can only urge to try it. Loose Powder is £36, Tan Sun Powder is £35 and Air Serum Foundation is £33.
