Dior-Diorskin Nude Skin Glowing Makeup

Dior's DiorSkin Nude Natural Glow  remains one of  my all time favorite foundations. So much so that I hoard my bottle, trying to make it last. ( You can read  review here ).

Now I have a new version to love. Dior has revamped the formula just a tiny bit and I think for the better. DiorSkin Nude Skin Glowing Makeup is the new name.

The new version contains , according to Dior, a formula that is partially composed of a mineralized water enriched with an exclusive and natural floral water that offers hydration, radiance, and elasticity to the skin. They also say they have used pigments that are the same color as the melanin in our skin.

 Testing my old  bottle vs the new , I find that the new is  an even lighter formula. The original was full coverage but not heavy, yet  the new is  also full coverage but is lighter yet. The liquid is thinner ( but not thin,  this is serious foundation)  and goes on easily , giving a covered, perfect look . It leaves skin with a little bit of dewy finish , hence the glow, but not too much. It's always worked with my oilier skin and many " dewy " types don't. With DiorSkin Nude you manage to get a flawless look without heaviness . 

Dior has also upped the SPF to 15 instead of 10 with Titanium Dioxide at 4.3 % and Octinozate at 3 % .

There is  wide range of shades  from Ivory to Dark Brown. Shown is shade 020 Light Beige. For some reason the swatch part looks far darker than the actual shade,  and the bottle just a little. This is a fairly light shade ,  3rd in the shade range.

 Retail is  $ 48.00 .
