Christian Dior Nude Tan Healthy Glow Enhancing Powder 01 Aurora Review and Swatches

When I first saw pictures of the Dior summer collection, this powder was on top of my wishlist. I mean just look at it, how could it not be? I'm generally not a massive bronzer fan, but pretty, shimmery bronzers always attract me.

This one is called Healthy Glow Enhancing Powder, and I guess the glow mostly comes from the very fine shimmer. I think it's okay to be used all over the face as the shimmer isn't that obvious, but I've been using it mostly on my cheeks, nose and hairline only. I got Aurora which is the lightest shade, because I'm quite pale at the moment, but I have also bought Sunlight, the second lightest shade for the summer. The powder is made up of 4 colours effectively, there are 2 base colours and 2 colours running through the raised NUDE writing. It's a nice peachy pinky colour on me, I normally just use it instead of a blush and it looks really natural and flattering.

You get 10 g and the powder is enclosed ina gorgeous shiny silver compact. You also get a small kabuki brush with it, but I feel it picks up a bit too much product in one go, so I prefer using a fluffier brush with the powder. The brush is ever so cute though. I think the compact may be refillable because there is a small "poke" hole at the bottom, so you can push the powder up, but I haven't tried it myself. The powder costs £37 and is available now online and at counters.

  2. Tetszik a sminkes kép :)
    Nekem 03-as Zenith van meg ebből,az kicsit narancsosabb, de szuper jó az állaga és a tartóssága.
