I have a big soft spot of Dior at the moment – their products are just glamourous and high quality, and generally work very well for me.
I bought this Dior Skinflash Radiance Booster, because along with tints, radiance pens are my other new obsession.
Professional “lightworks” – in a flash. Just one click and stroke of this lightweight, skin perfector instantly diminishes shadows, fine lines, and imperfections. Skin glows with new radiance. Wear it under or over foundation – or on bare skin.
This pen comes in three shades and comes in a silver clicky pen and in a pouch. I actually hate those pouches because they are no use to me, but I can’t bring myself to throw them away, so intead the cat chews on it, digests some of the fluff, throws up a hairball, usually at the foot of my bed, I get up in the morning and….
In many ways, once could say there are tons and tons of these products due to the presence of YSL Touche Eclat. Some people I know just don’t like Touch Eclat for whatever reason – and those that don’t tend to name the Dior Skinflash as a good alternative.
Apparently this doesn’t get the ‘vinegary’ smell like Touche Eclat does – I have to agree there.
I got candlelight which is a pale yellow.
The pen works as all the other pen concealer type products do. A few clicks and the right amount of product comes out:
Before (excuse my lashes. This review was ready months ago when I still had extensions in! They had started to fall out at this point):
This product is medium thick – it feels similar to Touch Eclat, perhaps a touch thicker. It’s easy to blend in and doesn’t cling to any dry bits I have.
Pat pat pat. Ok so the colour is a tad ashy on me, I think. However, it certainly boosts and lightens as it says it will – it can be used on other areas too, like around the nose, fine lines etc. Anywhere that needs a touch of highlight!
All in all a really high quality product that is a good alternative if you aren’t a fan of the YSL Touche Eclat. It doesn’t get stinky after a while either!
