Rising Star (09)
Dior Rising Star (09) DiorSkin Nude Luminizer ($48.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a soft, peachy-pink with warm undertones and a lightly sparkly, luminous sheen. It had a soft, smooth consistency that was dense without being dry or too firmly pressed in the pan, so the powder picked up well with a brush, spread and blended out nicely but did not have excess product that kicked up in the pan. It had nearly opaque pigmentation, though it could easily be applied with a lighter hand if preferred. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.
I’ve been waiting for this to launch in the US, and it might have for all my Dior-stalking has done for me, but I haven’t personally seen it in stock. I bought mine from Selfridges a month or two ago, and it is available through Harrods presently.

It’s a new line of powder highlighters that are supposed to give the “face a multidimensional glow” with a “high concentration of shimmering pigments.” It’s an update on their previous Luminizers but with lighter-weight packaging (and no included brush, which wasn’t anything to write home about anyway!) and a lower price. The ingredient list seemed to be the same, and by touch, they seemed to be nearly the same–I felt like the updated version seemed a smidgen drier/more firmly pressed but it was barely noticeable and a couple were a little lighter/darker swatched but may simply have reflected more or less light in the particular shot as there was little difference on my skin. They had medium to opaque color coverage that applied well, lasted for eight hours, and blended out easily. The texture was denser, smooth to the touch, but firmer (so no powderiness) but require a moderately dense brush and/or medium hand to pick up product.
