Christian Dior DiorShow Powder Backstage Makeup 002 Rose Girly / Girly Pink Loose Powder : Photos, Review, Swatch

The brand Dior has always fascinated me and more than cosmetics I know about their sun glass. I have got a couple of sun glass from them and this powder came as a gift from hubby while travelling in a flight. Yes, this was a purchase made in the flight ! When I was browsing through their catalog nothing impressed me as much as this powder which could serve as a blush too. Obviously I couldn't test it before buying but I was so happy to get hold of this luxury power from Dior.

Christian Dior Dior Show Powder - 002 Rose Girly / Girly Pink

Description

The Diorshow Powder comes in a very cute packaging. Once you remove the lid inside you can twist up the applicator and the products goes on to the skin directly from the sponge applicator. I find it very difficult to apply it using the sponge applicator so I hardly used it. I always open the lid and use my powder brush to apply the product on my face. It has shimmers and thus one has to be very careful else you might end up looking like a disco ball. I wanted to use it as a blush but the shade Rose Girly / Girly Pink doesn't show up on me at all. I use it on top of my blush for little shine and shimmer. Over time the sponge just wears off and anyway you need a brush to use this powder. The powder is very soft and fine and some time I just swirl a little around my oily zones to control oiliness. I use this more as an skin illuminator than as a setting powder or blush !

Verdict

The Dior Show Powder was love at first sight and the powder is also fine and smooth. It loves your skin and your skin will love it back but there are a lot of factors you must consider before buying it. It is too light to be used as a blush on my skin ! However it works as a good illuminator when topped over my blush and I use the powder generously on my back neckline for that radiant glow and shine. If you are looking for a skin illuminator from a luxury brand then you can go for it.
