Usually, deciding which to purchase can be a tricky process; brands seem to release better looking bronzers every year, and being the superficial shopper that I am, looks do matter. This year, however, there was no question in my mind which one would be mine.
As you know I have a slight, ok, massive obsession with all things that go under the 'nude' makeup category. My collection is quite literally overflowing with nude lipsticks, liners, shadows and now thanks to Dior, a bronzer too!
Sounds good doesn't it? It is, but it looks even better.
Nude Tan in Sunlight (002).
There are four versions of the Healthy Glow Enhancing Powders which each feature four slightly different variations of golden tones. I went for the second lightest in the range, Sunlight, a peachy, Kardashian-esque kolour with a hint of subtle shimmer.
See what I did there with the K! Anyway, moving on...
As this is an enhancing powder the colour payoff isn't as strong as the newly released Nude Tan Bronzing Glow Sun Powder's which have the same design but are in one shade, of which there are six to choose from, and NO glow. Great if you prefer more of a matte tan.
(With flash and without)
Having said that though, this isn't difficult to work with at all, it just needs to be built up a little which is something I don't object to really, as it allows you to get a more natural finish. Talking of a natural finish what about the 'Glow' element to it.
Well, as you can see above this isn't an overly glittery powder, there are no big chunks of shimmer or anything like that, but the formula does have a slight sheen to it. Personally, I like this as it allows me to get that fresh and healthy look I so desperately crave my skin to naturally have but just doesn't.
Hopefully you can see the 'glow' below.
Like all counter cosmetics this compact is pricey at £37, but getting a chic complexion doesn't come cheap nowadays and for me, the design and quality justify the price. I couldn't be happier with my choice this year, for nude addicts everywhere this is perfection in powder.
