After winning the darker Diorskin Nude Tan Healthy Glow Enhancing Powder in 004 Sunset in a blog giveaway I was so impressed with the formula and finish that I knew I wanted to find the one more suitable for my complexion 002 Sunlight. When the bronzers were first released with Dior’s summer 2012 collection I had considered trying it out but had managed to talk myself out of the purchase. I was kicking myself for possibly missing out as it was starting to appear that it was sold out everywhere. I was delighted to find it at Shoppers Drug Mart a few weeks ago when I was on a bit of a shopping spree.
The palette comes in a large box as included with the powder is an adorable mini kabuki brush of excellent quality.
Both are protected by their own black velvet pouch.
I love the quilted, shiny silver packaging. So luxe and sturdy.
Isn’t the presentation lovely. I love the embossed letters and variations in colour. You will be happy to know that after several weeks use I can say that it appears these shades trasnlate all the way down through the powder. I had hoped the pink toned powder would be more prominent in the overall swatch. Sunlight is definitely more pink toned than it’s darker counterpart Sunset but the overall tone of the shade is still quite peach.
Here is 002 Sunlight and 004 Sunset together for you. You can see Sunset is much darker and much more orange toned than Sunlight. Both shades have a nice subtle shimmer that gives a bit of a glow without looking shimmery. The glow is a little more prominent with Sunlight.

Even though the Diorskin Nude Tan Healthy Glow Enhancing Powder in 002 Sunlight isn’t as pink toned as I had hoped I am still extremely happy with it and have been wearing it regularly. You can see in the blended out swatch above that it does blend in very nicely with my skintone for a healthy dose of colour.
I wore it in my Guerlain Les Fauves Face of the Day if you would like to see it in action.
