FOTD: Featuring Dior Amber Diamond Shimmer Powder

Last night I had a wonderful night out in NYC with some fabulous girlfriends.  I decided to try out the Dior Amber Diamond Shimmer Powder to celebrate the occasion.  This enchanting highlighter gives a "lit from within" glow.  The highlight it produces is really very delicate, not overly shimmery; yet really sophisticated.  The product has 5 color bands (ivory, champagne, tan, bronze, and peach)  that I swirled together for a pretty sheen.  The formula blends like a dream and marries with your cheek color beautifully.  I am thrilled I have this in my makeup arsenal!

Additionally, I wanted to share a fantastic little bracelet I picked up at Ann Taylor -The Loft.  This is another great little jewelry find I've had at this store (for my other great find, read HERE).  I paired it with a cuff bracelet I've owned for about two years now from the Paula Abdul line at HSN.  Not only do I love to stack jewelry, but both pieces have a golden silver undertone to them.  

Happy Thursday everyone! 


  1. I am so on and off with my Dior amber diamond! I loved it at first then forgot about it..then loved it for a week..then forgot about it. That went on for a few months haha! After seeing this, I foresee another solid two weeks of loving it!

  3. Hey you look lovely!!! Love the bracelets and thanks for the sweet blog award.

  4. Oh!

    And the bracelet is beautiful!

  5. Thanks so much for the lovely comments ladies!!!!

  6. the foundation that your wearing, is it mineral makeup style ? because if i am not mistaken, Philosophy also makes one! :D

  7. Hi Rinz! Yes, hun it is mineral makeup style. I use it every so often- it covers pretty well and still lets your skin shine through. If I use it daily (which at one point I was) it dries my skin out- which is soooo funny bc I am super duper oily!! LOL.
