Review: Dior Pink Lace-Effect Highlighting Powder

Dior Lace Highlighting Powder is a limited edition product from the Dior Boudoir Look Collection for Spring (mid-January) 2010. Yes, it's been about a year since this highlighting powder was released and you could still see the lace pattern of my highlighting powder compact! As mentioned by Dior, this powder is intended to provide an illuminating lace-effect for the face. 

Dior Lace Highlighting Powder the most exquisite and luxe highlighting powder I have in my collection. The lace design of this highlighter is just stunning that I’m always hesitant to even touch the surface of this highlighter as it’s just so beautiful. 

This all-over highlighting powder was available in two shades- Pink Lace #001 and Peach Lace #002. I currently own the Pink Lace Highlighting powder.  
This highlighting powder is encased in a sleek silver metal magnetic compact with a huge in-built mirror.  The name ‘Dior’ and a white lace detail, as seen from the powder, are both etched on the case.
The overall design of the packaging and highlighting powder invoke a classy and elegant atmosphere! The compact is rather heavy, so this one stays at home and not in my handbag! 

I use this highlighter for my cheeks, neck and décolleté to add a touch of radiance, luminosity and a natural glow to the skin.  The finish is a very subtle pearlescent sheen which gives a really natural look to the cheeks.  With a light hand, you could achieve a beautiful subtle glow. 

I would highly recommend using a skunk brush or fan brush to apply this highlighter. There is no shimmer in this highlighter at all! Zilch shimmer!! That’s what I love about this highlighter as the last thing I want is to look like a disco ball!

Do you have your hands on any product from the Dior Boudoir Look Collection way back in 2010?
Which highlighters would you reccomend?
Do you prefer cream- or powder- based highlighters?



  1. What a beautiful looking palette!

  2. I love this highlighter!! I purchased Pink Lace in 2010 also and still have it. It's just as gorg as it was back then <3
