Having recently tried out and reviewed Dior Nude Air Serum Foundation; loving it and how it works with my skin, i thought it might be time to invest in the loose powder.
I don’t own a loose powder without shimmer so i saw this as an opportunity to justify buying one.
I bought mine on the fab website www.escentual.com. They nearly always offer 10% off on premium beauty brands including Dior. I also managed to collect 546 pretty pennies over the past year with them.
What are pretty pennies? Each time you purchase a product with escentual, you are allocated pretty pennies and can collect them to redeem off products. You have over a year to use them up. One pretty penny is one actual penny.
I managed to get my Dior Powder for £26. 94 instead of £36.00. That’s with the 10% off and £5.46 in pretty pennies. Not bad! Check them out.
Initial Thoughts on Dior Nude Air Loose Powder.
I chose the pink powder as i love the soft sheer colour it leaves on my skin. First off, i love the new packaging. There is 16g of powder in the plastic container with the silver lid embossed with Dior’s famous print. It also comes with a powder puff.
The powder is very light and yet mattes down my skin instantly while also leaving my skin velvety soft. I didn’t need to powder my skin for the rest of the day, (i have normal/oily combination skin) however, it was a cold, dry day too.
It is invisible, although i did note a hint of pink and as i mentioned before, i like that very much. I am not a huge fan of beige coloured powders on my face, they tend to make my skin look a little dull. So in this case, i would say it does give my skin a healthy glow.
Gives skin a healthy glow effect like a long day out in fresh air.
This powder contains sweet orange extract combined with vitamins and minerals to tone the complexion. The non-occlusive, pollution fighting formula limits the absorption of toxins without affecting the proper functioning of the skin.
Disclaimer: I paraphrased this to shorten the description.
I really do like this powder and it will probably take me the best part of six months to use up; however, i think it is a quite over priced for what it is.
Most high end face powders offer almost double the quantity of powder, with the same quality for a similar price to the 16gm Dior offers.
There is no caking, as would be expected from a high end product. Healthy glow ! The pink does leave a lovely finish on my skin; i wouldn’t say that it gives that stunning healthy glow, blurred effect that Chanel Les beige gives, but i still really like the finish for the matting down effect.
The real positive is that it protects the skin from harmful substances found in the atmosphere, although i don’t really know how much protection it can offer when i only apply a very light dusting of this down my T-zone. It also offers almost twice the skin protection of the compact version (see above right).
