Dior Poudre Shimmer- Rose Diamond

When I first saw the Diorskin Poudre Shimmer in Amber Diamond I thought it was so pretty, but not really my colour. Then I discovered it also came in a Rose Diamond shade and that was it, I had to get it. 


Products Used:

Monu Illuminating Primer
Rimmel Wake Me Up Foundation in 100 Ivory
Collection Lasting Perfection Concealer in Fair
Urban decay Primer Potion in Sin
Urban Decay Eyeshadow in Sin
Revlon Matte Eyeshadow in Rich Sable
Essence Liquid Ink Waterproof Eyeliner
Shu Uemura Eyelash Curler
Maybelline The Falsies Volum' Express Mascara
No7 Perfect Loose Powder in Translucent
Chanel Rouge Allure in  99 Pirate

The idea behind this product is that you can use it all over the face to illuminate the skin, however I find that can be a bit much so I just use it as a highlighter on the tops of my cheeks and a few other places on my face. What I love about this is that unlike theBalm's Mary-Lou Manizer, it's not very pigmented so it looks quite subtle on the skin. It's very hard to overdo it with this powder. I've found it looks really nice combined with a pink blush like Well Dressed from MAC. I tend to go for this when I want pretty, rosy cheeks.

You can find Poudre Shimmer in Debenhams for £32/€38. I ordered mine from House of Fraser but they are now sold out. I would recommend buying this at a counter over ordering online because mine arrived with cracks in the powder but I decided to keep it instead of sending it back.

I can't say anything bad about this product, it has quickly become my favourite powder highlighter.

What's your favourite product at the moment?

  1. This is really pretty! I doubt I'd ever be able to afford any Dior makeup, but it looks so beautiful! My favorite product at the moment is Maybelline Big Eyes mascara. It really does make your eyes, well, big.

  2. Oh that's too bad about it arriving with cracks! :( I've received less than perfect items when I've ordered online as well (including a half-used bottle of nail polish from BeautyJoint!!!) but each time I've just lived with it. I didn't even bother contacting the shop and complaining :p Amber Diamond has been on my wishlist FOREVER - I regret not picking it up when I had the chance as it's very difficult to get a hold of online now. This looks gorgeous on you - I like that, as you say, it's more subtle than the theBalm one which can be a bit too intense. So pretty! Very clear and detailed pictures too, which I always appreciate. Also, Pirate looks stunning on you!

  3. Ahhhh you look so stunning! You have the most amazing skin, Emma!!

  4. This is stunning on you! I've been neglecting highlighter this summer but I have a few I really like - including Benefit's Watt's Up, which is a lovely cream. I have a new one to trial soon which I'm excited about too!

  5. I LOVE this on you, and your photography is flawless! X

  6. Gee golly Emma, you are stunning.
