Dior Rose Diamond swatches

Powder shimmer is a brightening and highlighting pressed powder from Dior that's designed to add a subtle sheen to skin. There are two shades available in the range, Rose diamond 001 and Amber diamond 002, both of which do the same thing but give a slightly different affect.

Rose diamond contains five different shades of powder, which add really delicate highlights to the skin and leave a translucent glow on the areas the product is applied. The powder looks incredibly pretty in the pan with it's diamond pattern and Dior logo etched into the surface and it was this along with the promise that it would give me glowy skin without being glittery that drew me in.

 The five complementary shades in the compact can be used individually or mixed/swirled together and used on areas which you'd normally apply a highlighter. The colour is fairly sheer when it's applied and leaves just a hint of slightly pink transparent colour. Colour can be built up if you use a slightly heavier hand when applying and Rose Diamond makes a really nice, subtle pink blush on lighter skins. The shimmer in the product is visible but very natural and can only be seen if you look very closely.

Both powders are currently available on the Boots website where they are priced at £31.50 for 10g which I think is fairly expensive, but it is incredibly long lasting and the finish the powders give really is pretty.


  1. it looks gorgeous, i wish i had enough money! xx

  2. This is a gorgeous highlighter! I love the shimmer! If only I could afford it :(

  3. I own this new and I have to say it gives me the most natural glow among all highlighters.
    It 's a true not-shimmery but glowy translucent highlighter.
    I'm looking for Amer Diamond but unfortunately it's been discontinued now in Hong Kong.
