Nude Skin Has Never Looked This Good… Dior Nude Air

April 9, 2015

I have been searching for the ideal product to perfect my complexion since forever, it has been a constant juggling act between skincare and foundation, and now it seems like the quest may be finally over. The idea that my natural skin can look perfectly flawless without being terribly made-up makes for a very compelling story. The Diorskin Nude Air range from the house of Dior takes its inspiration from the very air that we breathe, presenting us with textures so light it is a break of fresh air, and gives us natural-looking, healthy skin that glows with the light of life!

Dior Nude Air collection

The Diorskin Nude Air range consists of a serum foundation, loose powder, and compact powder. All three boast of evanescent textures that are so fine and weightless the complexion never looks overly made-up. Instead, they create the perfect nude look with undetectable, flawless correction. More importantly, they allow skin to breathe, so as to maintain a thriving, glorious radiance day after day.

Diorskin Nude Air Serum Foundation is completely revolutionary in my opinion.  Sure the dropper dispenser and light fluid texture with volatile oil formula is a clear nod towards the Giorgio Armani Maestro Fluid Foundation which many (including myself) had loved for years before.  Whilst many have since tried to improve upon GA’s formula, most have failed in my opinion.  Diorskin Nude Air Serum Foundation feels different to me as the texture is unimaginably finer, boasting of a completely talc-free formulation, and dries instantly upon blending out.

Diorskin Nude Air Serum Foundation is a true liquid-to-powder finish, and leaves the complexion satin matte. The dropper dispenses just enough product for you to work with each time, there is enough time for you to blend out before it dries completely.  I normally take about 3-4 drops to cover my entire face, but sometimes I like to use just a bit more to cover up areas that have more redness, e.g. under my eyes, around the nose, cheeks, etc.  No matter how much you layer on, it never looks cakey nor does it emphasize any lines.  On my dry / combination skin, Diorskin Nude Air Serum Foundation lasts for about 8 hours before some slight shine starts to show, but it does so evenly to render an overall soft dewy effect.  I did not experience any creasing or fading throughout the day, and I can either choose to blot off the shine or simply let it be.  That is not something I can say of many foundations!

Apart from just being an incredibly beautiful foundation, Diorskin Nude Air Serum Foundation contains Dior’s new Oxygen ActivTM technology, which uses hyper-oxygenated oil to stimulate skin cells from within.  It also contains cranberry oil which is rich in essential fatty acids and anti-oxidants to help skin retain its radiance.

Diorskin Nude Air Loose Powder

To complete the Dior Nude Air ritual, there are 2 setting powders available in compact and loose forms.  The Diorskin Nude Air Healthy Glow Invisible Loose Powder is perhaps my favorite powder from Dior so far.  It is very finely milled, and is ultra lightweight on the skin.  Although it is available in 4 different shades, the pigments are inherently transparent so it does not add a perceptible layer of color over the complexion, but melds with your natural skin tone to give a complementary finish.

I have tried dusting this lightly with a very soft fluffy squirrel brush, and buffing it in using a dense kabuki brush… both ways this Diorskin Nude Air Healthy Glow Invisible Loose Powder performed beautifully.  Even when my under-eye area was freaking out and just horribly dry and creased, I was able to blend this powder out without emphasizing the problems.

Diorskin Nude Air Compact Powder

And just in case you need a touch-up, the Diorskin Nude Air Healthy Glow Invisible Compact Powder is an incredibly chic one to tote around town!  It is very smooth to the touch, in fact, it feels almost moist because it is so densely packed.  Regardless, it applies equally well with a soft powder brush as with a dense kabuki.  Just like the loose version, it moulds to the curves of the face beautifully.

Both versions of the Diorskin Nude Air powders are enriched with vitamins, minerals and sweet orange extract which helps tone and boost freshness in the complexion.  What is even more interesting, is that these powders form an anti-pollution shield on the surface of the skin, limiting the absorption of harmful aggressors from our environment.  It is certainly a nice skin-loving function, one that helps us maintain our youthfulness, and makes these powders even more useful!

Overall, I’m really loving the entire Dior Nude Air range so far!  For my Singapore-based readers, Dior is offering a nice little treat for you!   Simply show this blog post or my Instagram post at the Dior Boutique at ION Orchard B2 to enjoy an expert foundation consultation with the Dior Foundation Shade Analyzer, and receive an exclusive 3-pc Dior Perfect Complexion Trial thereafter!  The Trial consists of Dreamskin 3ml, One Essential 3ml and Diorskin Nude Air Serum Foundation 3ml.
