It's a shame the Dior Diorblush Light & Contour Sculpting Stick Duos, from the Fall 2016 Skyline Collection, are limited edition, because this dry-skinned girl is very fond of them.
I bought all three duos, and I really love how lightweight and portable these chubby, dual-ended, contouring and highlighting sticks are.
I'm really impressed with how pigmented this product is, especially the contour end. The texture of each is exceptionally creamy, and glides on the skin without a hitch. whether using my fingers, a brush, or even sponge, both products are very easy to blend, and meld into the skin. The contour shade blends down to what Dior says is a "matte finish." However, I'm more inclined to call it a semi-matte because it has beautiful, understated sheen. The highlight shade gives a shimmery radiance to the skin, and can blended out, or built up, to your personal level of glowy satisfaction.
From left to right: 001, 002, 003.
002 Medium Contour: a deep camel with subtle yellow undertones, and a peachy-pink champagne.
003 Intense Contour: a deep cognac and a cool, brownish-champagne with a swirl of yellow, pink and mauve undertones. This shade is really gorgeous and possibly my favorite of the highlighters.
The Diorblush Light & Contour Sculpting Stick Duos are meant to be used along all the areas where you would sculpt and highlight the face. But, I also like using both ends on the lids as a shadow or an eyeshadow base, and for those of you brown blush lovers, using the contour shade as a blush. Actually, I was wearing the darker shade of 002 as my blush yesterday, and was complimented, and asked what I was wearing on my cheeks from all the SA's at every counter I visited (which was all ;P).
