Dior Pop Diamond Skin Shimmericon ($43.00) is the latest limited edition DiorSkin Shimmer Powder. Amber Diamond and Rose Diamond are permanent Skin Shimmers, and last year saw limited edition Copper Diamond. If you’ve been reading for a few months, you probably know my obsession with both Amber Diamond and Rose Diamond. As soon as I heard Pop Diamond was coming out with Dior’s Cristal Collection, I swooned.

For anyone who felt like Rose Diamond ran too cool for them, I definitely suggest sneaking a peek at Pop Diamond. Pop Diamond is pinky-peach, which makes it a much warmer color to wear. I don’t feel it is overly warm, though, so I still think it is a universally flattering shade, like the other Skin Shimmers. I also think it is different enough from Rose Diamond to merit owning both–Rose Diamond is a cooler, paler pink, whereas Pop Diamond is a brighter, warmer pink with more gold/peach sheen.

Overall, I am happy with my purchase. I saw it on the displayer, and I was like, “One please!” I actually just caved and bought Copper Diamond off StrawberryNet this morning, so I can own them all.

    Funny, I just saw this at my local counter last night, swatched it & loved it! I agree it would be flattering on anyone.

    I love it!!!!

  3. You haven’t done a review on Rose Brazilia yet! I’ve been waiting for that one :-) Do you like it as much as the Coral Riviera? Also – what’s StrawberryNet? I also want to look for a Copper Diamond :-) Thanks for this review!!!

      Heather, just Google Strawberrynet and have a browse. It is pretty easy to navigate, easy to shop and free shipping (except for perfume to some countries but all details are on the site) – I’ve been using them for at least a couple of years and they are really very good, very efficient and prompt delivery most places.
      Be aware though, their prices do change slightly, day to day depending on what the currency markets are doing and if they run out of a particular product they can take a while to re-stock it.
      Check out the specials page too, they have awesome deals sometimes!

    • StrawberryNet is an etailer that has a bunch of discontinued high end makeup products :)

      I do like it as much as Coral Riviera!

    For those who are thinking about getting it, when I picked mine up last night I was told that the counter only got 35 and that there were only 5 left! And I live in Toronto, so its definitely not a low traffic location or anything. Also I think it looks much more different from Rose Diamond in real life. It is beautiful :)

    They are all wonderful!

    Oh I love this one so much! Can’t wait to get it. :)

    Ahhhh… I have the other three already so it would be a pity not to get Pop when it comes out here in NZ.

    LOVE Strawberrynet, just ordered Night Diamond because it was only available in 2 (yes, only TWO in the whole entire country! Ridiculous!) stores here late last year. Phtooey!
    Ha ha! Well, I’ll have it in my hot little hands very soon ;-)

    • LOL! That’s how I felt about Copper Diamond… I had to find it and get it!

      • CeeBee

        I know what you mean! I was Copper Diamond and I was like “Giiiiiiive it to me Noooooooowwwwww!”
        So pretty!

        I got my Night Diamond the other day – SO gorgeous – it’s more of a 3D shimmer, if that makes any sense…? Very luminous. The beige is my fave, the pink is a little paler and more frosty. But still cute!

        • Is Night Diamond part of the skin shimmer line?!

          • CeeBee

            Nope it was a LE release last year about Nov, I think. They had it on the Sephora website but they don’t ship internationally and I checked with my Dior SA Pam who told me it wasn’t available in our city, only Auckland and Wellington (much to my disappointment!)

            The powder itself is lovely, quite sheer and sparkly without being too garish and glittery, but the PACKAGING… OMG! It comes in a heavy black case and the top is studded with 30 faceted crystals – very glamorous!
            It comes with its own brush, which is quite good quality and a nice size but they each have their own little velvet pouches which is a bit fiddly but… I really only bought it because it was such a pretty compact! :-)

            • Ohh, I think I remember what you’re talking about now :) I love packaging, and I can definitely get suckered into it, but luckily if it’s something I don’t want at all (insides-wise), I’m usually able to pass, LOL!

  8. Oooh, Pop Diamond is indeed very pretty but omg, Amber Diamond is GORGEOUS!

  9. kat

    If i could afford this, I would be alll over itttt!

    I really need to get my hands on those Harmony Blushes!!

    I think that how this appears will depend on your skin tone: I have Rose Diamond (and love), and swatched Rose to compare with this new Pop Diamond, because I thought they looked similar on my skin. Turns out the Pop Diamond appeared COOLER on my skin (which I can’t pull off) than the Rose Diamond (which was more warm pink/peach). So I passed on this.

    I definitely suggest comparing the two in person if you have the chance to.

    If i don’t have plenty of blushes for me, my daughter and granchildren, I’d buy all of these diamonds.

    Just bought copper diamond off strawberry net too! I was waiting for it to be restocked. Used to only be rose and amber. >_< Buying it because I love these too much, I need to have them all too!

  14. Jennifer

    Christine, how do you think Copper Diamond will come out in swatches? Darker than Amber Diamond or lighter? I’m thinking of getting it too! :D

  15. Tamara

    I got Pop Diamond last saturday and it’s a gorgeous color, i also have Amber Diamond and swatched Copper Diamond last saturday but thought it was a bit dark but maybe i’m totally wrong. It seemed a lot darker than Amber Diamond.

  16. belle

    I would love to see this on your cheeks!

  17. inuchan

    I got mine today and I am soooooooooooo happy with it!

    ^______________________^

    Also, I am looking forward to see you create a look with this powder on!

    Hey Christine,
    I got the Amber one today and I am thinking than maybe I should have got the Rose one instead :@.. Do you think Amber one is a bit like Soft & Gentle MSF?

    • I like them all — I own them all. Amber is bronzy and perfect for me, like HG status, but I am NC30. I adore the Rose one for any pink/raspberry blushes or when I want that tone. I find Amber to be a little richer in color than Soft & Gentle (and the shimmer is way better!).
