I’ve been postponing this review for weeks now due to the holidays and all, but I’m happy that I can give you a closer look at Dior Diorskin Nude Air Colour Gradation in #002 Rising Pink. This is actually one of the two limited edition shades (the other one is Radiant Nude) launching later this month as part of Dior Spring 2017 Colour Gradation Collection (info, photos) and it was the first product that got my attention. I absolutely love the pink color gradation and I’ve been meaning to give it a try and see if it resembles a little bit the Guerlain Meteorites Powder Compact. Actually the name of this product is quite a long one as you can see in the packaging photo bellow, so here it goes… Dior Diorskin Nude Air Colour Gradation Blurring Powder Soft Glow and comes with a mini kabuki brush. To tell you the truth the brush has made quite an impression on me, as I got to use it everytime I apply the powder and it’s really great.
U.S. Launch Date – January 2017
International Launch Date – February 2017
Dior Rising Pink Diorskin Nude Air (12 g / 0.42 oz) comes in a very light pink with a gradation towards a white rosy shade and gives your skin a beautiful soft glow with a semi-matte finish.
