DIOR Nude Tan Healthy Glow Enhancing Powder Swatches
June 10, 2012 2 Comments
Dior Nude Tan Healthy Glow Enhancing Powder retails for approximately 50 euros. It comes in a round compact with a kabuki brush included.
This is not a pure bronzer – it is a really sheer, bronze tinted powder, that is better to be used as a highlighter. It is sheerer than Chanel’s summer 2012 bronzers.
The powder is divided on quarters and each quarter has the bas relief letter so that is spells the word NUDE. The letters come in two colours (the shades of pink and beige bronze). The quarters are two toned – a lighter and a darker shade of bronze.
There are four shades available:
001 Aurora. This shade is intended for very pale skin and if you don’t mind a bit of shimmer, it could serve as a real bronzer.
002 Sunlight. Slightly darker shade than Aurora.
003 Zenith. Warm, slightly orangey shade.
004 Sunset. The darkest shade in the bunch, a bit too orange for my liking.
Overall, I think I prefer Chanel Soleil Tan de Chanel. Dior Nude Healthy Glow Enhancing Powder is too sheer for a bronzer, plus none of the shades would match me well (the closest being Aurora and Sunlight). Also, in spite of the shimmer, it lacks the true glowy quality that Chanel has.
The bronzer is swatched in this order: 001 Aurora swatch, 002 Sunlight swatch, 003 Zenith swatch, 004 Sunset swatch.
