Dior Summer 2016: Diorskin Nude Air Summer Glow Shimmering Loose Powder, Nude Air Glow Powders

I guess I still have some Dior Summer 2016 products to show you, hey? Let’s take a look at the Diorskin Nude Air Summer Glow Shimmering Loose Powder, the Diorrskin Nude Air Glow Powders, and the Diorshow Waterproof Pro Liners.

Diorskin Nude Air Glow Powder 002 Fresh Light 001 Fresh Tan

Diorskin Nude Air Glow Powder 002 Fresh Light  and 001 Fresh Tan are gorgeous bronzers? Is that what they are? Because I don’t think so? I think I’d call them more of a bronzer blush, or BLONZER, because I like them on my cheeks, but not on the rest of my face. If I use them like a regular bronzer I tend to look a little too peachy and orange instead of bronzed. I love the formula though! They blend into the skin like a dream and do kind of give a subtle glow to the cheeks. Whether you believe the hooey that these contain a pollution-fighting formula that limits the absorption of toxins is up to you. SURE DIOR. SURE. #WhoYouKidding

Diorskin Nude Air Summer Glow Shimmering Loose Powder

Diorskin Nude Air Summer Glow Shimmering Loose Powder is a special edition light peachy loose powder that enhances the skin with the subtle shimmer of a summer glow. There are tiny shimmers that I can still see no matter how much I blend or buff. Some people have said that the more you buff, the shimmers disappear? I can still see them no matter what I do, so I just apply a bit of the Diorskin Nude Air Summer Glow Shimmering Loose Powder on the tops of my cheekbones and any high points on my face-like a highlighter. Click on the swatches below to get a closer look at the powders and that shimmer I’m talking about.

I’m wearing the Diorskin Nude Air Glow Powder 002 Fresh Light on the apples of my cheeks and 001 Fresh Tan towards the back of my cheekbones. You can sort of see the difference in shade I think? It’s a very subtle difference in shade to be honest with the lighter one being peachier. All three blend beautifully and sit gorgeous on the skin, as do all Dior face powders. Dior face powders are gorgeous that’s for sure.

Diorshow Waterproof Pro Liner $36

Diorshow Waterproof Pro Liner #282, #862

Diorshow Waterproof Pro Liner #282 Pro Navy is a navy shade and #862 Pro Magenta is a burgundy which is a pretty unique shade for an eyeliner. These are supposed to have the intensity of a liquid liner in a semi-matte finish.

Diorshow Waterproof Pro Liner #282, #862

Those swatches are two passes, so by no means are these as pigmented as a liquid eyeliner. They can break off a bit too, as you can see in the navy swatch some pencil came off.  You have a bit of time(around a minute) to smudge them if you like. That’s what I did. Although smudging the liner takes the pigmentation level down again. The bevelled tip is cool! But it takes a bit of practice to get used to it, which makes it tougher to get a precise line with them. That’s why I prefer smudging them.

Diorshow Waterproof Pro Liner #282

If you get water on your eyes they won’t move, but if you rub, then the eyeliner will move. So I wouldn’t call these waterproof. A more appropriate term would be water-resistant. That eye look did stay put all day for me, so long-lasting they are for sure.

Here’s what I mean about the bevelled edge being cool:

Diorshow Waterproof Pro Liners are interesting? But I think the word Pro means something here. I think these would be easier to use if you are a makeup artist and applying eyeliner on someone else. But using them on yourself? There’s a bit of a learning curve before mastering the application. Plus that price makes my eyes twitch something fierce!

Would I spring for any of these products with my own money? I’d probably get one of the Nude Air Glow Powders-IF I needed a peachy Blonzer. The Diorskin Nude Air Summer Glow Shimmering Loose Powder is pretty? If you don’t mind some shimmer, it is lovely as a setting powder and I know a lot of my blogger buddies adore it. The eyeliners are a pass for sure, I mean for that price they should line my eyes on their own, right?

Has anything from the Dior Summer 2016 Collection caught your eye? 

  • Ooooh I love Pro Magenta! Reminds me a lot of my new Makeup Geek eyeliner, Plumeria. Only redder.

  • The powders are pretty, and I agree, they do great powders! But at that price point, I just can’t get on board, these days. I could see it if I ran out, and needed something new, then yeah. But lol, for those of us who already have too much $hit kicking around… T_T

    • Same. I’d never spend the money on them. And to be honest these are just sitting here not being used. I have to many other things that I love way more I’d rather use. Dior is just getting too expensive and not that exciting lately. Even Lancome is upping their makeup game lately. Time for Dior to shake things up a bit. Everything just seems to be the same old same lately.

    I love that summer glow loose powder! I don’t use it as a bronzer or to set my face though. With a highlighter brush, I use it only as a blush. So preeeeeeety! They are very pricey though. And the price keeps on going up!

  • Amazing packaging but these powders have never done it for me. Shame about the liners as the burgundy one is beautiful !

  • Emma Bovary

    I really love the Dior packaging and don’t mind the look of that blonzer ;P
