“ Brand: Dior / Type: Powder / What it does: Protects „
I have been using this powder for the past few years as the main powder in my make up routine. Having used several other Dior products I first bought it to compliment the other products for a complete look.
The powder states it provides "pure, radiant, and absolute transparency" and "extreme fineness for an ultra-natural velvety finish" It is formulated with matifying ingredients for a fresh complexion all day long and can be used to refresh makeup, perfect the skin and touch up foundation.
The powder comes in 3 shades - light medium and dark, and I use 001 light. This is a suitable shade for me but I don't know if more shades would be required by people with darker skin tones.
The packaging of the powder is gorgeous like most Dior products and it comes in a dark blue and silver compact with an internal mirror in a blue velour pouch and an application pad. The pad works well to begin with but I have found that it tends to deteriorate after a few months and it can be difficult to wash so sometimes I end up using a separate applicator instead.
On use the texture of the powder is really fine and it feels nice on the skin and unlike some other similar products does not make my skin feel dry. It gives a natural look and is invisible and sheer so it doesn't really help hide any imperfections. However it does help my make up to stay longer and gets rid of any oiliness and shininess without giving me that caked-over appearance that I hate.
The product is expensive at £31.50 but it lasts for ages and I find that mine keeps going for a couple of years with nearly daily use as I only use a small amount.
In summary I think this is a good powder although I am sure that cheaper powders are available that would do just as good a job.
