Diorskin Nude Tan Poudre De Soleil- My New Love

Hi ladies,


I'm so happy it's the end of the week.  Shame the weather is not going to hold.

However, the non-existent Summer here in the UK is not a deterrent for not splashing on a new bronzer. Oh no!

I have been eyeing this super lush Dior bronzer called Diorskin Nude Tan for some time. I took the advantage of a loyalty card at my local pharmacy and I went for it. It's not cheap but it's gorgeous!

Let's start with the packaging. I mean LOOK at this! So pretty.

You get a kubuki brush with it too which is quite handy and they both come with their typical Dior dark blue velvet pouch.

And then when you open the pouch you get a gorgeous solid case in silver. Not real silver of course.
The kubuki is actually quite dense which will give you an Oompa Loompa look if you are not careful.
And then onto the bronzer itself! I can't stop looking at it. So pretty!
I went for shade Toffe 005 which is dark but you can take it down or up if you wished too.
There were two shades that were way too orange (I remember in particular 003) and the rest were ok in terms or oranginess.

It is a matte bronzer but you can definitely see some nice shimmer on the pan but I'm not sure you can see it on your face. I tried looking very closely and I couldn't really see it.

I wouldn't contour with it- it's too warm and you will look dirty. I normally use a more taupe colour for that.

I don't use the kubuki brush that comes with it. It's too dense and you pick up a lot of product with it.

I find bronzer swatches so deceiving! It so depends on your skin tone on how a bronzer will look.
But you can see a FOTD of me wearing it here.

As I said- this guy is not cheap! It's £34 so you really need to like it to purchase it. Link to HF here.

I think my Chanel Tan De Soleil and this one are on top of the list for my favourite bronzers.

I recommend it if you have the cash to spend.



What is your favourite bronzer?
