Shopping my Stash -Dior Shimmer Star Powder in Rose Diamond

I have recently been showing love to some of the neglected items in my make up collection

Gathering dust to my embarrassment was Dior's Rose Diamond


I have been wearing this for days and loving it. I have been using the darker side as a blush - this creates quite a build able color! and the lighter side as an overall highlight. Glowing cheeks, you all know I live/love it

I don't know why this product is not spoken of more often, I actually prefer it over Amber Diamond! The highlighter side is amazing. It has shimmers of silver, lilac, and almost blue?

It even looks amazing on Iphone pics!!


I tend to pile on highlighter, no looking too natural in that department! I'm like BAM highlight~!

Have you all found a lost make up item in your collection lately?

  1. I think it's great to shop your stash, I'm trying that b/c I'm on a no buy. XD Pretty highlighter, very versatile and rosy. Btw, I got OPI Skull & Glossbones because of your blog. :) I love the color but it's not working out so well with my tan skin LOL. Oh well, still a cool color. :)

  5. Hi, have you ever tried the Body Shop Shimmer Waves? I am wondering how this compares, given that rose diamond is so much more expensive. Btw, you have such good skin - you can afford to pile on highligher lol. I look like a greasy disco ball when I do that I even steer clear of blushes with sheen.

  10. Wah actually, I spoke too soon. I just painted OPI Skulls & Glossbones a few hours ago but now I actually like it. It's a cool muted gray with green undertones? LOL Sorry, thanks for posting about it.

  11. What a nice stash find! It certainly imparts a rosy glow. My latest stash find was a Bobbi Brown face powder that I've used to set my foundation the past couple days

  12. hello dear! im sorry but i have never tried their shimmer strips bc I had the physicans formula version which looked the same, but I know Danielle of BloominBeauty5 has the Body Shop version and loves it! she was not a fan of Amber Diamond. I trust her judgement so I would think the Body Shop version is very good! Try to wait until they have some kind of sale, the body shop is excellent for those!

  20. thanks! i do have the shimmer waves and was wondering if i should shell out the $$ to get the dior ones cos EVERYONE talks about them. now I sleep easier knowing I have at least some kind of good cheap dupe if not the glamour lol.

    btw thanks for the follow:) it's fun to read but also fun to share!

  23. you're tempting me to purchase it! >.<

  24. thanks for the review and swatch hun!maybe getting this one instead of Amber Diamond which btw cant find it here!!xoxox

    ReplyDelete
  25. Haha! BAM, highlighter! I don't think I highlight enough, will have to look into that. & Rose Diamond does look a lot more appealing than Amber. I'm starting to go off mine - don't know why! Have you tried any of the LE ones they've released over the years? Like Copper or Pop?

    ReplyDelete
  26. Gorg, gorg, gorg! I've always been more drawn to Rose Diamond than Amber Diamond and it's so nice to see that someone else agrees! I'm definitely picking it up next time I'm in Sephora.

    ReplyDelete
  31. is amber diamond hard to find in your place? maybe bc of the hype. Swatch it, it looks pretty amazing for summer! it's def got a glow!!

    ReplyDelete
  32. thanks!!! dior girly personified!

    ReplyDelete
  33. hahaha yup i LOVE my highlighter!!!!! i actually own pop diamond! i only used it once! its quite plummy and better in the winter!! less of a glow, more of an actual color. I will try to play with it once the weather cools down. I nv got copper bc I did not like make up when it came out, but it looks really pretty! Dior need to come out with more of these!

    ReplyDelete
  34. oh glad to hear it!!! i have amber diamond and its nice, but i actually dont see what the fuss is about haha i do use it though! the package is HUGE it will take the rest of my life to finish

    ReplyDelete
  35. I've tried both in store, but always feel like I need to get Amber Diamond since it's the one with cult status!

    ReplyDelete
  36. OMG SO SO SO PRETTY. this must be the prettiest highlighter ive seen in quite some time. thanks for sharing xx
