Dior Illuminating Lace – Effect Powder for Face

As some of you already spotted this compact from my other post on Valentine’s day, good eyes ^^ Yes I got the Dior Illuminating Lace – Effect Powder for Face as my present. My husband was initially debating on this one and the 5-colour eyeshadow palette. When another lady went in asking for this compact, that’s how my husband made up his mind getting this. Haha I don’t blame on him for spending $55 because myself really like it as well.

Inspired by the soft, feminine lace of the 1920’s; a sampling of the gentle pinks, light-reflecting shadows and classic neutrals that flatter and enhance a variety of complexions. The embroidered powder can be used as a highlighter to add a radiant glow to the complexion.

There’re actually 2 shades in the collection: 001 Pink Lace and 002 Peach lace. The shade I got is the 001 Pink Lace. Why am I not surprised that we only get one shade in the US market again. Yeah like always Asian markets always have more selections than us. This is unfair.

This compact is insanely heavy, like a brick. Good stuff doesn’t come in cheap light plastic packaging. And it’s wrapped in a black velvet pouch.

Even the case has embroidery design, so pretty.

Under indirect lighting…

In the sunlight… The lace pattern looks more dimensional and you can sort of see the fine shimmer reflected by the sun.

I can’t wait to use this but on the other side I don’t want to ruin the pretty pattern.
