Dior Rose Diamond Skin Shimmer For Perfectly Pink Flushed Cheeks

Dior Rose Diamond Skin Shimmer ($42.00) is just as lovely and pretty as my eternal favorite Amber Diamond. Surprisingly enough, it has a good amount of pigmentation to give me not just shimmer, but a light rosy flush on my cheeks. I alternate between using the 188 or the 129 brush to apply the Skin Shimmers, depending on the intensity of what I want. I definitely see myself using this as an easy go-to blush for days when I’m pressed for time or prefer a very minimalistic look. The shimmer is subtle and sophisticated–no chunky glitter bits here.

(I wore this look yesterday, I hope to post it later this week!  Yes, that’s All Mine lipstick, too!)

I bought this about a month ago and just love it!!! I wear it everyday – either by itself or layered with a blush. I know it’s kinda pricey, but it’s totally worth it!

Hey, if you use it every day, then it is certainly worth the price tag 😉 I use Amber Diamond ALL the time, and it never looked close to being finished either.

If you want more color, Rose. If you want more of a bronzy look, Amber. I prefer Amber on myself because it flatters my skintone well!

I see this looks good on!

I bought the Amber diamond as per your recommendation and used but It doesn’t give me color
except for shimmer for an NW43. I hear they had a limited edition Copper I think.

I actually prefer Guerlain, the Terracotta, they had 3 versions last year but I got African Rhythm, it gives me color/shimmer

Any thoughts?

Hey Love!

It doesn’t give me too much color, but the shimmer and slight bit of color it gives really warms up my cheeks (I’m NC30). I haven’t played with the Terracotta, so I can’t give you any insight, but I will check them out soon!

I just bought this today!! I haven’t been able to find it anywhere, but there it was in Sephora today 😀 I was sooooo happy to finally find it! Thanks for all of your great recommendations!

Thats another great look on you. You have endless gorgeous looks. I love that shimmer too. After i saw the amber one on you i went next day to get one, and the lady at the counter recommended the rose one for me. I agree with you, it does give you a little bit of colour and shimmer. I love it!! 🙂

Awe, you have such a beautiful smile- I almost forgot what I was suppose to be looking at- oh yeah- Dior Skin Shimmer in Rose…very pretty…but you make it look so good.

It’s beautiful! I was thinking to get the other colour variation yesterday but then I tried it today and found out it would work better for me. I still haven’t bought it, though (54 bucks in my country and need to save for Christmas presents). But now I realised I have to get it anyway as I could use it as a blush as well. Previously I though it could only work as a highlighter or eyeshadow. Thank you, Christine for your advices – you look perfect with this ‘minimalist’ make-up!

I hope you enjoy your purchase, Mariann! 🙂 I really love both shades I have (Amber and Rose), and I’m sad I couldn’t get Copper!

I bought the Rose diamond, when it first came out and it’s my favourite !! and a couple of days ago, i also bought the copper diamond version on ebay:) I can’t waite to try it out…

Dear Christine,

Copper diamond is my favorite powder when i want that bronzy glow on my face, since i have really fair skin, with dark hair colour….i am just in love with alll of my dior skin shimmers….

try to get your hands on the copper diamond! i cant find it anymore on ebay…

Do you have any idea if dior will come up with a new range of dior skin shimmers? I am so curious….

Sometimes when there is a big item I want, I’ll wait until I meet a certain goal – like getting a certain grade on a test 🙂 This way I feel like I can treat myself!

I got the Rose one first and loved it SO much I immediately went out and bought the Amber too. Got Copper Diamond last month and although it looks very similar to Amber in the pan it is different on your skin.
I like layering these over a brighter blush, especially an intense pop of colour on the apples of my cheeks and then highlighting and diffusing with shimmer. Lasts for ages and looks luminous!

OMG.. I just bought my first Dior. I got this (I know I”m late to this entry). I love this! It’s beautiful. Even though I’m usually into more peachy tones, this blush is perfect. (I’m Nw20)

I bought the sunset cafe quint, 222 Casual beige High shine lippie and this blush. It was beautiful. I’m usually Mac enhanced so this was a lovely change!

Can’t wait for the spring dior!

YAYYYYYYY! Welcome to the club! 😉

Better late than never! I’m so excited for you! I really, really love the skin shimmers — I hope they come out with more this year.

Dear Christine….i love the skin shimmers too! I got three of them: rose diamond, pop diamond and copper diamond, which is also lovely for those who wants a bronzer for fair skin…
Do you have any idea when dior will come up with new skin skimmers??
I cant waite to buy me another colour:)

Greetz,

Suheda

Hi!

This shimmery powder looks amazing and i’m very tempted to try it. However, I wanted to know how it compares to the MAC MSF Degrade in Blonde. The two seem very similar. Have you tried both, and if so, which do you prefer?

Thanks a lot 🙂
