I’ve tried a few of the DIOR bronzers in the past, but they’ve never really had pale skin friendly shades, and they always tended to look pretty orange on me. So when I saw the new DIOR bronzer had eight shades, I knew I had to try the lightest shade.
“This renewed * powder offers sensational softness and sublime comfort. Thanks to its formula, enriched with 95% mineral pigments, it melts perfectly with the skin to create an amazingly natural healthy glow.
Enriched with wild violet extract, it is comfortable and maintains the skin’s natural hydration. The powder has been dermatologically tested.“
The DIOR Forever Natural Bronze Powder Bronzer is available in eight different shades which is amazing for a bronzer range from a high-end brand. Typically, higher end brands have two to three shades max for a bronzer, so eight really is impressive.
I think the eight shades DIOR has on offer is pretty inclusive, and the palest shade looked amazing for light skintones, and their deepest shade in the swatches is actually quite deep, which is fantastic to see.
The DIOR Forever Natural Bronze Powder Bronzer is housed within a cream coloured, faux leather covered compact, just like the Cushion Foundation.
With a silver, raised metallic CD logo on the lid, the compact looks and feels very luxe. It has a nice weight to it too. I’m not sure cream is the best colour for a powder bronzer, but mine hasn’t had any staining issues, and I’ve been using mine on/off since April.
Inside the cream, faux leather compact, the bronzer pan features a Dior logo embossed into the centre of the powder. The DIOR Forever Natural Bronze Powder Bronzer is £40 / $48 and contains 9g of product, which is a generous amount of product for a powder bronzer.
I don’t know if DIOR is planning on launching refills of the bronzer, but on the base of the compact, there’s a little circular hole which allows you to push the pan out of the compact, so if they did launch refills, that’d be a great way to reuse the compact.
I chose the lightest shade of the DIOR Forever Natural Bronze Powder Bronzer, which is 01 Fair Bronze. I am so happy with how pale this bronzer is. It’s one of the lightest bronzers I’ve ever tried, and it’s perfect.
I’m sure I could probably get the same effect with a ‘light’ shade of a face powder, but as I am so pale, 01 Fair Bronze is the perfect shade of bronze.
It’s quite a warm shade, but it’s nice and buildable, and it just looks seamless once blended into the skin. It’s also completely matte which I definitely appreciate, and it gives a natural, sunkissed look to the skin, and it lasts all day without fading.
I often find bronzer to be one of the first products to fade on the skin throughout the day, but the DIOR Forever Natural Bronze Powder Bronzer stays put, and I couldn’t be happier. I have got a few more bronzers to show you over the coming weeks, but this DIOR bronzer is definitely one of my favourites – I love it!
