Quite expensive, but went on like velvet. It made my skin feel (and look) smooth and silky with a healthy glow. I am very fair with a lot of pink in my skin and cool undertones. The lightest shade, beige praline, was a perfect match for my skin without making me look yellow or orange.
I am not crazy about the brush that it comes with because the bristles are just a little coarse, but it works ok. I just keep another brush in my makeup bag.
Age: 25-29 Skin: Very Oily Hair: Black Eyes: Brown
I have oily skin, lots of redness, acne scars, acne, enlarged pores.
I am also have strong yellow undertone.
I have the liquid foundation version of this in 30 and it is a tad too dark for me.
In powder foundation version(the one i am reviewing now), I have the lightest colour.
SA recommended the lightest one because as it mixes with oil it will get darker.
-It melts into your skin when you brush the powder on.
-can build coverage(sheer -> medium?)
-love the brush it comes with. You dont need another applicator to wear this powder.
-subtle shimmer results in NATURALl looking finish while covering blemishes
-I can wear this during colder days but I won't be able to, in summer.
I already have to blot 5 times a day when I wear this and have to touch up frequently.
But I'd rather touch up and blot a few times a day than accentuate large pores and fine lines with a matte finish foundation/powder.
-A lot of blushes I own have shimmers in them.
I have to be extremely light handed with those blushes when I wear this powder foundation. Otherwise, I'll look tooo shimmery....=p
-NOT YELLOW TONED. I need to wait until the color turns darker on me =p.

LOVE- I have never come across a sculpting face product or powder with such a natural YET luminous effect. It is very flattering and not FLAT, drying/ cakey. It truly feels like your skin is Nude. I find this Dior range amazing all around for- texture, finish and performance. I would definitely re purchase this again. It is great for touch ups, NO fall out and not messy!

I actually use this as a bronzer. I bought golden caramel 04. I find it easy to use the colours separately with the enclosed brush. I find it to be a bit sparkly when all mixed together, as the highlighter has quite a bit of glitter in it. I only use the highlighter sparingly.
If I were to use it as a foundation my colour would be 032.
If you like mineral makeup this is the best one I've tried

I was intrigued when i saw an advert for this in a magazine and so decided to give it a go... Well i wish i hadn't :-( it wasn't as amazing as i thought it would be.
Good - nice concept and you do get a lovely light glow.
Bad - expensive, not a great variety of shades, too many similar products which are cheaper and do the same if not better job.
Would not buy again. Use now and again to add a glow but otherwise have abandoned!

Got this as a swap first then went and bought a different shade. The powder is beautiful and soft and gives good coverage. I do think the 3 colours are a bit of a gimmick as its not possible to really use them separately but after blending on the face it looks fine. The case is very luxe. I will probably buy up again when i have used these two up.

i THINK i would buy this product again, but this depends on how fast i go through the compact. it's quite expensive ($50.00) but then again i would buy Diorskin nude Natural Glow Hydrating Makeup SPF 10 again and it's $45.00..so not much of a price difference there.
for reference, i wear 021 linen in the Diorskin nude natural glow hydrating makeup spf 10 & for this compact i wear Beige Praline. when i swatched the color onto my hand at sephora, i mixed all 3 colors together and was appalled at the "shimmer". perhaps i was too heavy handed but did not see how sparkles could pass off as "nude & natural".
anyways, i couldn't get my mind off the product and went back to buy it a few days later lol. the first day, i tried it without any foundation under. all i had on was a light moisturizer. i do not have bad skin at all, just redness from old acne scars and this took a lottt of product in order to provide decent coverage. in other words, it is super sheer. upon my first few swipes, i could not even see the difference between the parts of my face in which i had makeup and the ones without
i kept on building coverage and was pleased to see that after a lottt of product on my face, it did not look cakey at all nor did it enhance the pores on my cheeks or nose. i added a bit of blush, cinema secrets concealer and was good to go!!
the next day, i used 1.2 pumps of diorskin nude liquid foundation (i usually use 2 pumps) on my face and applied makeup as usual. added a tiny bit of CS concealer and used this as a setting powder. flawless finish.. definitely a lot more natural looking with the setting powder on!!
so i will be using this as my setting powder as the primary use as it is the perfect pair to my diorskin nude liquid foundation. will update if anything else!

I really like this powder! It made my skin look very natural with a hint of sheer coverge. I never had compliments on my skin until I started using this. I use this with the Laura Mercier oil free tinted moisturizer and both product seemed to go very well with each other.When i wear my LM tinted moisturizer it made my face flat with one boring color but ever since i had this powder it made my face have more dimension while wearing the tinted moisturizer.My face now doesnt just look only flawless but radiant with a hint of shimmer but it all looks natural:D

Great all in one compact. Very natural looking and love the highlighter -it's perfect and light for daytime wear (not at all like Kimmy K where you look overdone) Definitely great for summer bc not too much coverage. Great alternative to tinted moisturizer for summer or to wear with tinted moisturizer for more coverage. Would totally buy again!
Age: 25-29 Skin: Combination, Medium, Warm Hair: Blond, Straight, Fine Eyes: Brown
I own it in the color 40. It's great for everyone who lives on the go (the compact features:1 powder pressed foundation-1 blush/contour-1 highlighter and a huge mirror!!!)and likes sheer to medium coverage, naturally glowing skin.
Althought i love it, i personally wouldn't use it in the wintertime, simply because i like more coverage when i'm not tanned!!!!

LOVE!!! I live in the south and it gets very hot and humid in the summer and makeup just melts off my skin within two minutes of being outside. So I decided to not even try wearing liquid foundation, but look for a powder with light coverage. I'm so glad I found this!
It gives my skin the most beautiful glow. I mix all the colors together and apply with a powder brush. It's long lasting and doesn't feel heavy at all. It's just what I was looking for!

Pretty! Oh such smooth, soft powder! I wanted an all in one powder I can carry around for touch ups and great finishing powder and when I saw this I couldn't believe my luck. Just what I wanted, what I needed. The powder is super soft, and the colours are just perfect. The darkest shade (the colour in the middle) works well as contouring and the top shade works as blush, while the shade at the bottom works superb as finishing powder. It leaves my skin flawless and looks better over time. I got this in 032 and for reference: I'm around NC25-30, Diorskin Nude Liquid in 023 or 030, Hourglass Veil Liquid Foundation in #2. Beautiful product! ^^

I'm NC20 and bought this in Beige Praline 02 which is a great match. light neutral with yellow tones. I am a HUGE fan of Diorskin Nude foundation and a huge Dior fan overall. The pros of this powder are that it has a nice lightweight, natural looking finish that manages to make my skin look glowy and even. Cons: I don't like the addition of contour color (soft rosy pink) and highlighter included in the compact. . I want a finishing powder, not a light blush and highlighter too (since these 2 are in there it makes the actual face powder very small). there is no way I can swirl the three without looking too pinky beige. the pink it nice to dust over the cheeks but I really don't need it since I usually wear blush anyway. the highlighter is nice and subtle and quite pretty but I have other highlighters I use so it's not needed. The foundation powder is great and i love the neutral, slightly yellow color for my skintone but the section of powder itself is quite small so its not worthwhile for me to re-purchase. Also, I hate the packaging. It's a bulky, square fingerprint magnet and since the bottom is clear, you can see all the powder residue in the brush compartment. It's just messy looking.

I really really love this pressed powder which I have in The Passion 033.
I had earlier purchased Dior Skin Nude foundation 030 and thought the application and finish it gave was impressive. Unfortunately my skin is prone to oiliness, and I found that by the end of the day it had stated to slide away even though I had used a light dusting of loose powder to set it.
However this trio of powders lightly applied all together with a MAC 150 brush over the top of the foundation, gives a an absolutely perfect flawless finish which makes the foudation last all day!
What a great product.

I resisted buying this powder for a while, mainly because I was turned off by the three seperate areas on it. When I read about what it was for, I didn't think the powder was for me at all. The powder looks beautiful in its case I must say. I finally tried it on myself (#33 The Passion) and I couldn't believe how great my skin looked. It looked really even and flawless, but not heavy. I love Dior's Forever powder but it can be a bit heavy. This is more natural. I love all of Dior's Nude products!

My first reaction to this was 'WOW what a beautiful compact powder'. Dior has really outdone themselves again. I have been a big fan of all their Diorskin nude collection products till now, especially their Diorskin Nude Foundation and also the Diorskin nude powder. I use the DiorSkin Nude Foundation as my daily foundation, the powder I use only on special occasions. The Diorskin Nude Sculpting Powder contains a SPF10, each powder comes with 3 different shades (to unify, to sculpt and to enlighten). Basically its a highlighter, compact and sculptor in one. The price is steep, thats why I have been holding back to purchase, but not for long as I have been reading all praise for this item. I paid 48Euros for this, but if you count it as a 3in1, then I paid about 16 euro for each shade, which makes it more reasonable, I guess.
Dior uses an Advanced Mineral Makeup Technology, this powder is very light and once applied its makes me look flawless with the big F. It contains 100% natural, mineral pigments with Dior's exclusive active mineralized water. It's very long lasting, had it on the whole day and only needed to blot once or sometimes none. There are lots of people who dont like the brush that comes with it and use their own alternative brushes instead. I feel no need for that and I m very happy with the brush that came with it. I got this in shade 032 Sable Rose, it matches my skin tone very well. For their Diorskin nude foundation I use shade 031 Sand which is Medium shade for Yellow undertones. I will definitely buy the refill.

Incredible product! I am not a Dior fan, neverteless I saw it at the counter and I just wanted to have it. Packaging described accurately below. I am fair and I got Beige Praline 02. The powder itself is very very pretty. The color I got is actually quite light. There are three shades in the container: a light beige/ivory, a peach and a light pink. They are pigmented and slightly shimmery. I don't think I could use them separately, especially with the brush that comes with it; maybe just for highlighting some spots, but I don't care about that. I use the three shades mixed and the result is unique for a powder foundation. It is a shimmery ivory with peach and pink tones. I would say it is like a much more pigmented version of Guerlain Pressed Meteorites in Nacre des Mers. The texture is wonderful, creamy and silky; never cakey or powdery. For a "nude" item, it has good coverage. I think I love it! UPDATE* I am falling seriously in love with it! I have never seen such a NATURAL finish! It also has amazing oil control. It looks good over any foundation. I found out that the best way to apply it is using a kabuki. Compared to this one, my beloved Chanel Mat Lumiere powder seems heavy and powdery. Definitely a HG item!

I bought this because I wanted a bronzer and full coverage powder in one and the texture of the Diorskin was so smooth and moist on my skin, unlike any other powder I have tried. This powder has a moist-like quality that does not go on dry which is perfect for my normal-combination skin.
I bought this in the darkest color #50 Mocha for my medium tanned asian skin. I have tried applying this with the enclosed brush and a bronzing brush as foundation by swirling all 3 colors. However, this has pink undertones and shows up as red on my skin, so I would not recommend this color for asians. My skin looked burnt red, which was not very flattering.
This offers buildable coverage, evens out skin tones, and is very pigmented and easy to blend. The enclosed brush is high quality but it is too small and flat to use everyday to apply this powder. The included brush would work better for touch-ups.
I absolutely love the packaging. It is beautiful with its metallic silver cover and is durable and high quality. I would love to use this as an everyday powder but unfortunately the color did not work for me.

I'm madly in love with all of Dior's Nude products. I started with the liquid, then the loose powder, then the concealer. When I found this compact, I had to have it too. And it has met all my expectations, and more.
It's not inexpensive, at $50 USD. It comes in a larger, heavier compact than I'm used to - it's a rectangular shape that's reminiscent of Clinique's newer packaging (the shiny, mirror-like squares that replaced their old green packaging. Inside, you'll see three strips of color: one to highlight, one to sculpt, and one to unify. You'll also find a flat brush - more on that later.
Initially I thought I could use the highlighter as, well, a highlighter, and the sculpting color as blush. I can't. The middle color, at least in the shade I take (20), is too sheer for that. I also didn't think I'd like the results of sweeping all three shades on my face - I'm yellow toned but prone to pinkness, and I hate adding any kind of pink to my skin. I thought the middle color would exacerbate any kind of redness issues I might have. Boy, was I wrong.
Swirling all three colors together (using the provided brush - wow! Never thought I'd see the day) makes for the most luminous, natural finish I've ever seen come from a pressed powder. How a product can seem both sheer and provide significant coverage is beyond me. It covers all of my pores but my skin still breathes. I don't look like I'm wearing makeup yet my skin looks flawless. The Dior gods are shining upon me!
And the brush. Oh, the brush! I am a brush fiend, buying the likes of Trish and MAC and Shu, and have always dismissed in-product brushes as total crap, horsehair. But the brush that accompanies this compact is soft and not prickly in the least. It picks up just the right amount of product. How convenient - finally I can appreciate a brush that comes in a package, instead of needing to carry a separate brush!
Brilliant, innovative product from Dior. From this combination to oily girl who's prone to redness - a heartfelt thank you!
