Retailing at $46 USD for .23 oz/ 6.6g (compared to .4oz/ 10.3g for $44 USD Shimmer brick) it can be quite a pricey Investment. Comparing to Bobbi Brown Shimmer Brick In Pink Quartz.

OVERALL: I have applied the powder using a blush brush on the cheeks and it adds the perfect Spring glow. Using the Brightening brick as a blush and Shimmer Brick applied as a highlighter adds that fresh defined look to the face. You don’t need to worry about over applying as it requires to be built-up into achieving the desired color depth. I will not be surprised if they disappear off the shelves! This is one makeup item you cannot go wrong with…. Thank me later!

Dior Nail Polish In 294 Lady From Spring 2015

I usually don’t like neutrals but this one swooned over my heart. Dior Lady is a nude colored polish in grey and pink undertones. Part of the reformulated gel formula, the wear time is very impressive. I have swatched with the Dior Gel Top coat, but the polish has a great glossy cream finish on its own. 2 coats to perfection, this is part of a limited edition collection.

OVERALL: Great formula, lovely color- a must have neutral tone in your collection for those formal wears. Long lasting and chip resistant wear and the always a delight to use the Dior polish brush, wide and rounded while slightly tapered for extreme comfort of application and precision.
