I’ve tried a few DIOR powders and overall, they’re quite nice, but the DIOR Backstage Face & Body Powder No Powder sounded like the perfect face powder.
“Dior has created Dior Backstage, its first professional makeup line, a collection of Dior makeup artist essentials, inspired by the energy backstage at the runway shows.
Shades to suit all skin tones in exclusive* and buildable textures.“
The DIOR Backstage Face & Body Powder No Powder has been created, so it can be used both on the face and the body, to help you achieve an even, naturally matte yet luminous complexion which will last all day, with no powdery finish.
The DIOR Backstage Face & Body Powder-No-Powder claims to leave the skin looking perfected, with imperfections being blurred, shine reduced and the complexion is naturally more even and skin texture is smoothed.
The new DIOR setting powder is infused within a gelled base, combining soft-focus pigments which instantly erase imperfections and mattify the complexion. At the same time, the powder’s formula is also infused micro-pearls which boost radiance and naturally brighten the complexion.
DIOR Backstage Face & Body Powder No Powder is available in a total of ten different shades, and is on sale for £29.50 / $40, and contains 11g of product within a clear acrylic square compact, with silver foil accents.
This powder claims to have a gel infused formula, and I often eye roll brand claims as it’s a pressed powder. But DIOR aren’t wrong with the DIOR Backstage Face & Body Powder No Powder. It feels smooth and creamy, and nothing like a conventional pressed powder.
It’s such a beautiful powder, and it works amazingly well on my dry skin. Some pressed powders can be very unforgiving on dry skin, as they tend to cling to dry patches, and end up emphasising dryness.
This powder doesn’t do that at all, and I can imagine it being forgiving on lines and wrinkles too. It has a luminous and radiant effect on the skin, so I really wouldn’t recommend this powder if you have oily skin.
As the DIOR Backstage Face & Body Powder No Powder will potentially break up your foundation, or make you look even more shiny than normal. It’s absolutely perfect for dry and dehydrated skin though!
I bought the palest shade available, which is 0N Neutral. DIOR describe 0N Neutral as being for very fair skin, with neutral undertones.
In the two swatches above of the DIOR Backstage Face & Body Powder No Powder, they look like they’re two different shades, but the deeper of the two swatches is an intense swatch with three swipes of my fingertip, and the paler swatch is one swipe of my fingertip.
It’s strange that the shade deepens, the more you apply, but I always prefer to apply the DIOR Backstage Face & Body Powder No Powder with a fluffy brush to help set my makeup, and under eyes
I don’t notice it being too dark for my skintone, nor does it oxidise on the skin either. I’m so impressed with this powder, and I love the packaging too. It’s so modern for DIOR, compared to their dated navy compacts.
I have been really enjoying applying the DIOR Backstage Face & Body Powder No Powder over the KVD Vegan Beauty Good Apple Foundation, and they work perfectly together (review of the foundation is coming soon).
