Week 4, Day 2. Shimmery Blush--Dior Rose Diamond Shimmer Star Powder

Today's offering is this beautiful blush/highlighter from Dior.  It's the Rose Diamond (01) shade of Dior Shimmer Star.  They also make an amber version, which I don't have, but looks gorgeous!  On my very pale skin, it works as a subtle (very glowy) blush, but would probably be a highlighter on most women.

It is a neutral or maybe slightly warm rosy-pink and has a pearly/metallic sheen. If you want more highlighter, use the left side of the pan and for more color use the right side.  The texture is very nice, not chalky, gritty, or glittery.  It's very finely milled and glides on like a dream.

Rose Diamond ranks about 8 on the scale of glow/shimmer, where 0 is matte and 10 is glitterbomb.  Giving more than just a subtle glow, this product gives quite a bit of shimmer (duh, it's right there in the name!) to the cheeks.  This is a large sized pan and is $44, available at Sephora, Nordstrom, and pretty much anywhere Dior cosmetics are sold.

Tomorrow, for Day 3 of Seven Days of Shimmery Blush, we have the infamous Nars Orgasm blush.  I blush just thinking about it!  Anyway, let me know which blushes you'd like me to talk about next week!
