The detailing is absolutely beautiful, personally I have tried it on and it worked for me as I use a very light hand when apply this product but sadly I just don't want to use it anymore because it would ruin the beautiful detailing. If you're a collector this item is wonderful, or if you don't care about the detailing but for me I think I'll be swapping this as I simply cannot bring myself to ruin it.

I saw this in a department store window in London and had to have it. Up until then i had only ever used Dior lipsticks but it was so beautiful that i had to buy it. Once the initial wow factor had worn off, i realised that i had made a mistake. The effect was way too powdery and sparkly for everyday and i didnt want to use it because it was too pretty. Once used a few times the colours blend into one soft pink. Dissappointed.

I'm an Asian woman with yellow skin undertone.
Quite disappointed after couple of use (using Kabuki Brush).Too shimmery,too much glitter,strange glow.I put this pallete aside and continue use my old TBS shimmer waves in pink.
Until one day,I found that TBS shimmer waves gives me strange shines especially in outdoor light.Then,I gave the Dior Blossom a second try and I really really surprised.
I had a very nice and soft glowing look.
Most of my friends noticed the change of my look and ask about my skincare.But this product still has downside.I must apply a layer of MU pressed powder after Dior Blossom to achieve understated-beautiful-glowy look.But still,love this product.Quite afraid run out of this product since its LE.

I was seesawing about whether or not to buy this. I saw the ads and saw it at the local Sephora. One week I smugly walked by and didn't buy it, based on MUA reviews. A few weeks later, after a few more reviews, including one in which the reviewer said her BF thought it made her face look like it was lit by candlelight, I had to have it. So, I took the plunge and bought it (yes, I had tried it in the store and gone outside before buying).
I came home, took out my one of my kabuki brushes (probably EoB), and dusted my face (after spending some time admiring the beauty of the palette). It looked good in the artificial light in the bathroom, but when I went outside, my face had that deer-in-the-headlights glare that stopped me cold. Okay, so the next day, I used my Sephora skunk brush, and same thing. Okay indoors, such a glare outdoors that I should have been able to generate electricity as an alternate source of energy. The day after that, I used my MAC #187 brush, reasoning that it was smaller than the full-sized skunk brush. Same problems. The next day, I took out my JI fan brush, and used the product only on my cheeks, very lightly, after foundation and blush. That's when I got a nice glow and a not quite subtle look. It does migrate, so you need to be lighthanded in application to minimize fallout.
Bottom line - if you have to have this for the aesthestics, buy it, but don't expect great things from it. It's more beautiful than functional. Yes, I can create a nice shimmer glow, but I have other powders and creams that can do that without the fallout or requirements to be so careful in application. This is a nice concept that others are also making (Chantecaille comes to mind), but this one is not for me. I will definitely not repurchase.

I got this completely on a whim, and I have to say I am in love. This is the best highlighter I have ever used. Better than nars nico. better than chanel satelitte. better than meteorites.
My mu routine, which was previously quite minimalist, has turned into:
TM, concealer, mascara and a light brushing of this powder. I look luminous, it is truly a no makeup look. I use a fluffy brush and swirl it, and pay no attention to the random colors, they all go on pink anyway.
I have found a second use for this- after concealer, I put this under my eyes with a stiff brush, and it really helps to diffuse light. Very very nice stuff. Hope it comes back in another iteration. I marked yes for rebuy even though it is LE.
Love this stuff.

From a purely aesthetical point of view, I like this product; it undoubtedly looks amazing! ...It's gorgeous how they realized the blossom art work!
I have not bought it, though. I think it is outrageously expensive, for being just an highlighter!
Initially I thought it was a blush, but then I had a Dior make up artist doing my make up (they do this from time to time in my fav. perfumery!) and he was applying that over my entire face, and yes, I have to say that it gives you a real bright, healthy, luminous look (perhaps a bit too much on the pink side?). But my God, 51 Euros... for a little glow... I prefer to invest this money in a treatment product. Definitely a nice to have… but not a must!

I bought this about a month ago. It stayed on my dresser untouched until last week. I couldn't bear to use it because it is so beautiful, almost like a work of art. Finally I broke down. Wow. I love love love this. I really wasn't expecting much - I bought it mainly just bc it was so darn pretty. This is awesome. My face looks bathed in light. Who knew green, blue and pink could flatter so much? This works (imo) much like Nars Albatross, except even better (and I do love Albatross) ... the "weird" hue that it puts on my face is - believe it or not - so pretty - makes my eyes pop and seems to subtract a few years. Love this! So much so that I am considering a backup, since I am sure this is LE (??)
Worth the money, in my opinion.

I bought this purely for the embossed artwork. It's by far the prettiest palette i've ever seen. For the longest time i didn't want to use it fearing that the artwork will get messed up. Today i braved that and dabbed into it. The blush itself seems very weak, gives a weak glow where you apply it. the color is barely visible, however i do like the subtle look. It's definitely a luxury item though, not something you'd normally need to buy or use.

I also think that it is not worth €€€. I have a bunch of products better than this at home. I tested it only at a counter too: like the previous reviewer said, it gives just the slightest pink sheen, a weak rosy glow - really nothing special... Texture is just so-so... Not worth the purchase for me.

I didn't actually buy this palette, but I came veeeeery close until I saw it in person. At the Dior counter, they had to have one palette under plexiglass to show what it is supposed to look like because they tester was unrecognizable, even though it was mostly full. The new palette appears very glittery, but the used tester barely had a sheen to it. On my cool PPP skin, all this palette did was give me a shiny glow without any real color. Nothing special that couldn't be acheived with a bunch of other products. This might be gorgeous on dark skin, as the pink glow might show up as a pink glow rather than shiny cheeks. I'll give it 2 lippies because it is a beautiful palette when unused. For something so pretty there is very little pay off. While it looks beautiful on display, it would probably become quite ordinary when 1/2 used in my jumble of a makeup stash. Will be skipping this one and spending the $52 on a couple NARS blushes.

For what it is this product doesn't deserve a 5 - but for the way it makes me feel it's getting one anyway!!
Firstly I paid £35 for it, that is hellishly stupidly expensive! But this is not a must have item, it's a luxury fun item like Meteorites, and you're paying for that so you can't complain too much.
When I went to the counter and tried it I wasn't sure, the first time I saw it in real life I was put off, but it's stayed on my mind ever since and for that reason I just felt like I had to give it another go. So up to the counter I marched, tried the sample, still wasn't sure...spoke to the SA who pretty much knew I was being won over...I just made the decision to buy it there and then and I did, and I'm happy!
The product is beautiful, pretty and really unique. I am so happy to own this. I loved the glittery overlay and decided to buff it off very gently with a powder brush, I was sad to do this but I've got over it.
Overall the powder isn't glittery, it's got a very subtle sheen to it, it gives an ethereal glow like others have commented, and a very slight flush. I think this is a very useful and pretty addition to a mu stash but not an essential one, it's one of those "i think i might wear this pretty powder today" items but not a "i need this to look good" item.
I'm sad in a way that it's so pretty but so normal once it's on the skin....that's why I don't think it deserves a 5 - it basically looks better in the box. But it gives me such JOY to have this and it's so pretty. Sometimes you just have to indulge in things that you frankly don't need for the sake of being a girl!
EDIT: I have reduced this to a 3 because my palette cracked and has now got a huge hole in the powder revealing the pan. I was hoping to hit pan but this is not how I thought it would happen!

I too purchased this (along with most of the Dior 2008 spring products - am in love with the colors) because it was so pretty, like a piece of art. I thought it would be a sheer, pink/peach blush but it's just a white-toned highlighter with lots of glimmer. Used right, your face looks like it's candlelit (or so my boyfriend says when I wore it) from inside. I probably won't use it very often because I'm not fond of the shimmer look all over the face, but it certainly is very pretty!

Ok this product was friggin EXPENSIVE!! 54 dollars CANADIAN. Yikes.. but i bought it anyways cuz i fell in love with it and it was the last one at the counter. Neways..
I have NO regrets.. I LOVE IT. I use MAC emphasize shaping powder as a highlighter (its is the white shade in the sculpt shape duos that came out recently) but wanted something more with a iridescent look.
Ok so at first i thought it was a bit too 'frosty' but it is not.. when you put it on your face it gives the effect of Benefit's high Beam.. (which I had to return because the liquid gel formula made me break out pretty bad).. However, this is a powder and it is not too frosty once applied with a brush..
Also the pallette has a bunch of colors which you can use individually.. there is a blue, green and a white and a pink... and i use the green or white as a highlighter for my browbone.. WOWWW .. AMAZING is what i have to say..
The product has a glittery overlay.. but this comes off after one or two uses... which i am glad .. .because i dont like glitter on my face.. i have glitter creams for when or if i want glitter.. and dont want that in a highlighter.
The compact is a bit boring so I gave it a 3 for packaging...it has a mirror which is good.. but the quality is good just boring.
It is too bad this is Limited because i really love it. It is especially great for when you are going out at night or going to a dim lit restaurant.. put it all over ur face lightly with a fluff brush and it gives you an ethereal glow.
I am NW15 with reference to MAC foundations.. and this pale pink is a good shade for me.. I dont know how it would look on tan or dark skin tones.. but i have a feeling that it will look beautfiul as a blush .. even highlighter depending on how light or dark you are. But i can guarantee that it will look great on you if you are fair or fair-medium.
This is my favourite highlighter. Hopefully they make it permanent. We should all write to Dior and make them do it! :)

I reviewed this on the board, so decided to bring it over here. It's about the prettiest face highlighter I have ever seen!!!
I got this because of it's looks (sad....i know) and it was my first Dior item ever. I also got the Spring Bouquet eye quint and Fushchia Poplin gloss, and love them, but this flower blossom is just awesome! The glitter on the top comes right off with first use, so that is simply overspray. What is left is very pale pink with some light blue/violet and pale green designs. It is almost matte looking - not much shimmer at all. There is some but very little. The effect is a light pink "flush" with an irredescent (spellcheck?) and candle-like glow to it! Perfect cheek for any m/u look, like if you're wanting bright red lips and neutral face, this is that perfect blush. I am no longer regretting my pricey purchase and I will be using this for a long time :) I'm PPP by the way, with freckles, mostly cool tones, pale blonde and green eyes.

I don't know if I would recommend this product. I'm a bit conflicted. That's part of the reason I decided to review it. Here's the good bits: The compact is hefty in hand, luxe, typical Dior if you like that sort of thing (and I do). The floral design is adorable, the shimmer is subtle, ethereal even, plus it's in every beauty section of every beauty or shopping related mag (it seems) as the 'it' item of the season. Who wouldn't want to get their mitts on such an item? Well, I did and here comes the conflicted part. The colors are just so weird. There's a bit of white, a bit of green, a bit of blue and two shades of pink (darker and lighter). A swirl of the brush unites these shades into a nearly iridescent pale pink shade that barely shows through on my NW 25-27 skintone. I've tried the colorful bits individually as e/s as well and the result is a pretty (yet sheer) iridescent cast of whatever the shade is you choose (either a butterfly or the little ladybug). The results are incredibly cool and pale so it's definitely a unique look. I'm just not sure I'm convinced it would work for everyone. I would advise warmer-toned ladies to be sure and try it before you buy it. **UPDATE** I ended up returning this after many more tests and swatching. It basically swirls together to create a pinkish-white cast which I ultimately did not find flattering at all. I have other pink highlighters which just do a much better job. This item is unique and sort of 'collectible' so that I cannot knock, however, if you're wanting a pink shimmer powder that gives an ethereal and pretty look I recommend TBS Shimmer Waves in Pink (way underrated) or Becca's Pressed Shimmer Powder in Angel instead. Either one of these are great products that outperform (imo) this one.

LOVE LOVE LOVE.
I love Dior's Floral Blossom. I really wish they'd make it permanent, rather than L/E which it currently is right now. It gives me the most perfect and ethereal glow that I just cannot seem to obtain from other products. Not only does it perform wonderfully as an illuminator and highlighter, it also doubles up as a blush, proving it's versatility. I am eurasian with cool fair skin and I always reach for Floral Blossom when I want a feminine, subtle look.
Although it is a very expensive beauty product, I recommend that all girls and women with cool skin/pink or blue undertones purchase this, particularly fair skinned girls. I think it's really well suited for those with pale skin, however, don't trust my judgement too much. It could look just as beautiful on tanned skin or dark skin.
I'm so proud to have this in my beauty arsenal. It's aesthetically pleasing, long lasting and compact. My only qualm with Floral Blossom is the packaging..it seems a little generic and boring. With such a lovely palette and display of colours, you'd expect the packaging to be fancier but other than that, I'm in lovee with it!
A perfect dupe would be the lightest blush shade in Scott Barnes Chic Palette in Posh. Refer to picture. In the picture, the lightest blush shade of SB Chic Palette in Posh looks a little darker than Flower Blossom but it is because I applied a fair bit of the blush to my arm. They are literally the same.

I Love this Gorgeous product form Dior! It is stunning to look at and
the same once applied.
Gave me the most amazing glow and did not find it shimmery at all as other reviewers mentioned, also used it as a shadow and i am in love!

Okay, I read the reviews before picking up the one being held for me at my friendly neighbourhood Dior counter, and I bought it anyway. Here is why. It's really cute. Aside from that, I can tell you that the store demo was half used and looked like sh%t. Meaning, if you are the kind of person that doens't like using your pretty things, or, once your pretty thing looks used it pains you, save your money. The shimmer is just an overlay, like Revlon's LE Lovestruck, which I also own. Under the shimmer is, true to its name, a very basic ballerina pink illuminating powder. I didn't get any shimmer or glitter like a reviewer said. It is actually quite wearable. No matter what colors make up the cute sculpture, the end effect when you swirl your brush onto it is a pretty versatile illuminating powder. Think Benefit Dandelion only with some glow -and even more overpriced, lol! The compact is real sturdy and I was in the market for an illuminating powder so this was neat as a Valentine's splurge. If you already have an arsenal filled with luminizers/highlighters/MSF's, again, save your money because you can get something else, better even, for half the money.

This looks so very beautiful when it's new. I was lemming this as soon as I saw it but when I tested it the other day in my local department store it totally killed any desire I have for this product.
This is 35gpb new and although you get a lot of product and it looks pretty on the outside all it really is is a very light pink highlighting powder. If anything this made my face look ashy instead of glowy, a collector may pay full whack for this but I can assure you it's not a must have and if like me you have many many shimmery things in your stash already you can totally do without this!!
Very disappointing and totally overpriced.
