Today’s review is going to be of the Dior Diorskin Nude Air Luminizer in the shade 001 Nude Glow.
To be honest, I was fully convinced (and so was Julia) that I’ve already done a review of this highlighter, but after checking I realised I didn’t, which is kind of shocking because I talked and used it so many times on this blog.
So since it’s a SUPER PRICEY number I thought I could share with you my review and also some DUPES if you don’t feel like spending this much on a product.
You can get it here for 56,00$
A bit of a funny story before starting this review: about two years ago this highlighter came out for a Spring limited edition, I wasn’t really into highlighting back then so NO WAY I could justify the purchase although I kept thinking about it. So finally one day I said: Dad lets go to Sephora, I need that highlighter or I’ll go crazy! We went and OBVIOUSLY it was sold out insert heart broken So when this one came out last year, I hear a youtuber I follow ASKING to artistic director of Dior if it was the same product and he said yes, I knew I HAD TO HAVE IT! So I got it for my birthday: my two-years-ago self was so happy!
The packaging is absolutely stunning and luxurious I totally love it.
It is this flat mirrored component with Dior engraved in it. It has a magnetic closure and it comes with a mirror on the inside too. The outside packaging is a pain to keep clean but other than that is stunning and really sturdy. Overall I love it.
I got it a while ago so I don’t have the outside packaging but it was a cardboard box what I kept though is the velvet pouch, I know some people throw it away but I don’t have very many expensive things so I treasured it and it helps me to keep the mirror clean.
It also comes with a tiny kabuki brush, which I always carry with me in my bag for touch ups on the go, I don’t use it for highlight but of course for the price is a nice added touch. It’s very soft and it disperse powder really beautifully.
PIGMENTATION & FORMULA
The formula is quite stiff in the pan, like a baked product, but that doesn’t make the highlighter less smooth.
It has sheer coverage but it’s really easy to layer, the pigmentation is there, you just have to build it.
It never looks cakey or powdery, it doesn’t enhance texture and pores.
APPLICATION & SWATCH
It’s really easy to apply and to blend, it looks so beautiful on the skin.
The shade I have is Nude Glow, which is a stunning champagne gold with a peachy undertone, it’s smooth and not glittery at all.
On me it lasts around 8 hours before starting to fade.
The Balm Mary Lou Manizer: Lighter, more neutral, more buttery and pigmented. (24$)
MAC Soft And Gentle: Very similar in tone but more glittery. (31€)

I love this highlighter, I love that is not as metallic as other ones I own, it makes you look radiant from the inside, it’s a very natural glow but totally buildable. The formula and the packaging are amazing too. It’s really easy to find a dupe for the colour so I don’t feel like you HAVE TO HAVE it, especially because is super expensive, although I love the whole experience of using something so fancy. It makes me feel special. That being said I recommend it but it’s not a must.
I really hope you guys enjoyed it, don’t forget to like, comment and share to let me know all your thoughts and if you have any question.
