I tried this at the Dior counter and loved it! The SA put it over blush she used and I loved the subtle shimmery effect it gave my skin. I have very pale skin (NW15) and I really find it hard to wear blush without looking like a clown. I use this on the apples of my cheeks instead of blush so when the light hits it in certain angles I have nice shimmer. Have received loads of complients when I wear it. I had also bought the Diamond Pop but the orange strip made it look funny on my skin so I gave it o a friend instead as she has darker skin tone than me. I love the packaging aswell, a handy size. Overall this is great product for highlighting and giving you a nice shimmer without giving too sparkliy juvenile appearance. Will definitely repurchase!
I really like this shimmer powder. Im cutting back on my over-shimmering and this is helping me to not go overboard. It gives a more grown up shimmer which I like! I had pop diamond first but the orange strip in it gave off a gold shimmer on me. With my pink undertones, nothing gold looks good on me! This was perfect, its more of a champagne shimmer on my mediumish skin:) I will repurchase for sure!
I have 2 combo's of this shimmer - i have ROSE DIAMOND my absoulate fav! the highlighting and pink shades are so pretty on as im very fair and looks very rosey and also goes on so silky and smooth.
however.. i also have DIAMOND POP, which i dont like as much as it has gold tones in it which does not look great with my fair skin i would say it would be better for darker/tanned skin.
I wanna be a bit conservative before I give a 5, but i'm pretty sure coming from Dior, this should be somewhere between a 4 or 5.
First, this shimmer powder is way too light for a blush (you need to layer a couple times before you can see the color, and I"m NW25).
Yet, i can see if this is applied over some blush, or just apply on the nose bridge, under eye 'C' area, this should enhance facial depths.
A bit disappointed as the color is not deep enough to be a multi-use shimmer powder, but the packaging is really gorgeous and classy!
P.S. the shimmer powder is quite 'large' in terms of size when I see them on my makeup brush, this is contrary to what the others said about the powder being 'finely-milled'. However when i brushed the powder by hand, the shimmering effect does produce 'finely-milled' outcome.
The downside may be the huge price tag, but I'm lemming the other shimmer powder in Amber Diamond now!
Well i would definitely buy this again if it's not limited edition. this is a very pretty highlighter! makes your skin look as if it's glowing especially under the light. I just wish that it came in a much cuter packaging. I'm glad that this product doesn't have too much glitters. doesn't look cheap.
same review for 001 and 002: this is a beautiful highlighter to use over bronzer or blush. use the lightest shades above and below your brows and you will have a great, subtle glow.
shame that it is LE, last years best buy!!! everybody keeps complimenting every single time when i am wearing it:)
absolutely amazing highlighter/blush... goes on smooth, staying power is great and the colour is unique and the shade can be worn all year round
One of the most beautiful highlighters/blushes I have ever used. I have been searching for the perfect pale pink, glowy blush for a long time and I think I have found my HG. Rose diamond is a beautiful palette of shimmery, pale pink colours that blend together to create a subtle, glowy, pretty blush. I have used Nars copacabana for a while but sometimes find it hard to blend over the top of foundation and it sometimes looks a little bit too shimmery. I've tried lots of powder highlighters but they always add too much glitter, this however, leaves no obvious shimmer on skin, just a soft, glowy pink shade that looks really natural. The palette was pretty expensive but i'm more than happy with the fact that it doubles up as a blush and highlighter in one and I think it'll last me a while. I would repurchase but it was limited edition so I can imagine it being hard to get hold of in the future.
I snagged this on eBay for a song and thought I struck oil, I did not. I became obsessed with this hypnotic rose shimmer brick every time I went to Bloomingdale's and didn't purchase because they were always out of stock. Am finding since the economy tanked so many cosmetic lines are low on inventory or get so few pieces they are sold out and restocking seems to take eons. Anyway, when this arrived in the mail I opened it like the makeup junkie I am and was again mesmerized by the rose glow. After my first attempt to achieve that movie star glow I tried again and again only to get the same unfortunate results. No matter the brush or application method I end up looking feverish and wrinkly. I don't have wrinkles or crepe like skin but this product makes me look as if I do. I have come to loathe this and rue the day I ever met it. As for all Dior products the packaging is spectacular and the quality dynamic, which is why this gets two lippies, Will give it one more try otherwise this is going to eBay to live.
Gorgeous, absoluely gorgeous. I loved reading the reviews on this item, however, I was envious as everywhere I went, this item was sold out, so you can imagine my surprise as lately everywhere I go, I am finding this in stock again and I scooped one up immediately. Fabulous shimmery colors that work beautiful on pale coloring .... for those pale like me (NW10) this will work as a blush and for those darker in skin, this will certainly be a lovely highlighter. I wear a bit on top of my regular blush, which tones the color down a bit but yet adds a shimmery glow ..... the first day I wore this, I received a compliment from a man who in over 10 years never notices things and he was going on and on how beautiful I looked ....... since then I have continued wearing Rose Diamond every day and every day he compliments me on how great I look (he says I look all glowy.) I did think that this item was a LE for some reason, however, two seperate sales associates confirmed that it was part of Dior's permanent collection, so this item will be a staple in my makeup collection for a very long time.
