The Diorskin Nude Glow Complexion Enhancer is a new item in the Dior stables for Summer 2010. What it is is a product that helps illuminate your complexion and enhance it with a fresh glow.
What was my main concern is that it is very apricot in colour. On light skins, I wasn’t sure if it would end up looking too dark.
The first time I used it, I applied it as I would a primer. I used it by itself directly on bare skin which turned my face a little orangey. Not flattering, sorry! If you are more tanned, you might get away with using it on its own. I couldn’t. Even with foundation over it, it made me look dark.
So the next time I used it, I decided to mix it with liquid foundation and to my surprise, it actually does add a little something to your look. I can’t quite place my finger on it though. Its a bit of a glow that comes from right under your skin, not something that sits on top of your skin.
I can’t quite show you how it looks in photos because its something that the camera can’t really capture, but here’s a general idea how I like to use the Diorskin Nude Glow.
I usually mix 1 pump of Nude Glow Complexion Enhancer with 1 pump of liquid foundation. In this example, I’ve used Diorskin Nude but in reality, I’ve used it with everything from L’Oreal True Match to Clarins Everlasting and the results are quite similar.
There is no perceptible shimmer in the Nude Glow complexion enhancer. I usually pump the products into my palm and then apply my liquid foundation as I have told you earlier.
I find that the apricot tones of Nude Glow helps to warm up liquid foundation which might be otherwise a little cool for me, or a little “white” and it helps make my skin look a little bit healthier.
I was advised by a makeup artist that you can also use the Nude Glow Complexion enhancer on the T zone area to illuminate (but be careful it can make you look oily) or use it on top of foundation. I like to use it the way I have shown you above – mixed with liquid foundation.
Pros: Gives a glow to the skin that isn’t overly shimmery, Light cool texture, Can be used in different ways
Cons: Limited Edition, Pricey
The product has a silicone texture and when applied on my skin, it feels cool and does not make me oily. I won’t say that its a must have though if you want something that helps give that “glow from within” and you use liquid foundation, this could be something to give a little boost to your skin.
Diorskin Nude Glow Complexion Enhancer retails at RM125 at Dior counters and is limited edition for Summer 2010. It comes in only 1 shade.
