ABAD Day 12: Dior Skin Shimmer in 004 Pop Diamond //"每日一胭脂"系列 第12天: Dior Skin Shimmer in 004 Pop Diamond 胭脂

Today's featured blush is a Limited Edition, please don't hate me, lol. It's supposed to be more of an highlighting powder than a blush but since the shades in it are quite pigmented and deeper than its counterparts (Rose Diamond and Amber Diamond), I prefer using this as a blush! Don't be scared by how frosty this may look in the pan, if you have experience with Dior's skin shimmer powders, you'll learn that their shimmer is extra-fine and subtle as well.

今天介紹的是限量品, 請不要嬲我, 哈哈. 其實是highlighter多過是胭脂但因它的顏色比highlighter深少少, 顯色度較高, 所以我比較喜歡用它做胭脂. 不要被它的微閃的表面嚇掉, 如果你用過Dior Skin Shimmer powders的話 (Rose Diamond和Amber Diamond), 你應該會知它們的閃粉很微細, 並且很滑.
10 grams of product.


See how subtle and nice it looks when swatched on the arm:

看看出來的試色光澤起來不會太 '閃':

Applied on cheeks, so glowy yet there's a slight wash of color, right?

很柔和的光澤, 亦有些粉紅的氣色, perfect.

Intensity: As a highlighter, it's very pigmented, less pigmented when used as a blush, but shows up real nicely.
Finish: Subtle shimmer, not frosty at all
Price: Forgotten, it was ages ago
Lasting power: 6-7 hours
Repurchase: Yes, wish they would come out with new colors
Overall thoughts: This would be a nice double-duty blush and highlighter. I'm sure there are dupes readily available out in the market like Hard Candy Living Doll, but the shimmer and glow of Pop Diamond is less frosty, more subtle than its counterparts.

上色度: 作為highlighter來說, 顯色度高. 如果以胭脂來說, 則不是那麼深色, 但出來的效果很 refined (柔滑)
效果: 低調的閃亮, 閃粉幼細不大粒
價錢: 很久, 已經忘記了
持久度: 6-7小時吧
回購: 會的,有多些顏色會更
總評: Pop Diamond 是2用的胭脂+highlighter. 市面上一定會有類似的顏色, 例如 Hard Candy Living Doll, 但 Pop Diamond 的閃亮 + 光澤一定比較柔滑和低調.

What is A-Blush-A-Day (ABAD) Project?
Project ABAD was started by Elaine, Jolyn and I. On each day, each of us will present a different blush (old or new) we used each day (so that's 3 x 30 = 90 blushes), with swatches done either on face or on hand, and a short review. For my list of 30 blushes to be used in this project, click here. Don't forget to head to Elaine's and Jolyn's blogs for daily blush surprises!

我們三個(Elaine, Jolyn 和我)每天會介紹當日使用的胭脂, 3人 x 30 = 會介紹總共 90 個胭脂 (新與舊), 配以試色圖(於手上或面上), 再加短短的用評. 本人於未來30天會使用這些胭脂. 去Elaine, Jolyn的blogs看看她們在用那個胭脂吧!!
