More absolute chunksomeness from Dior, this time in the form of an illuminating palette that’s as lit on the outside as on the inside.

Dior Night Diamond Palette 2008

The official name is the Dior Night Diamond All Over Diamond Dust Powder designed to be dusted anywhere you want to sparkle and glow. It came with a brush which I don’t have and nor do I have the box (although it might turn up – it’s unusual that boxes go astray at this end) for on-the-go glow top ups.

The interior isn’t quite as exciting as the exterior but if I remember correctly, at the time it was a huge trend to cover yourself in sparkles – particularly across the shoulders and decollete (up the shins too!) – for ‘party’ or ‘festive’ looks. I suppose it’s still the same now except the high beam has moved from the body to the face. Thinking about it, encouraging people to be seen from space by applying sparkle all over was a good way to use up product quickly. Anyone remember the Urban Decay Lickable Body Powders from around about 2003? An even quicker way to get through your shimmer! Actually, after a quick Google, I discover that edible body powders still exist – I’ve just swiped away from an edible Hemp body powder as a major thanks but no thanks.

The powder shade is a kind of champagne and according another great source of information, Musings of Muse, who I’ve followed since forever HERE, it wasn’t as full of glitter as many similar products at the time. So, a little bit of subtlety and style from Dior for the trend. Funny how the outside is so bling and yet the inside is more pared back. There was another shade – Beige Diamond 001 – this one is Pink Diamond 002. At the time it would have set you back $80 – a lot even eleven years ago – and now you can find one or two on resale sites for around $95.
