One of the most highly anticipated items from Dior Snow Spring 2015 makeup collection is this limited edition Le Neiges de Diorsnow 001 Rainbow Powder. It is an all-over finishing face powder designed to revitalize the complexion and bring a healthy, luminous glow to the skin. As I had briefly introduced in an earlier post this week, Dior releases a collection of whitening skincare and makeup collection under the Dior Snow line each Spring, exclusively for the Asian market. And this year’s collection is very comprehensive, with 2 eyeshadow quint palettes, 1 blush and 2 nail polishes [reviewed here]. Even if you are overstocked on everything, or if light pastels just aren’t your thing, I still suggest you take a closer look at the Diorsnow Rainbow Powder because this one is selling out fast!
Le Neiges de Diorsnow 001 Rainbow Powder is a limited edition compact powder consisting of 4 different colors laid out in a gorgeous mosaic pattern, with the signature Diorsnow snow flake and name laser cut into the surface. It is supposed to recreate the way sunlight hits and reflects off fresh snow.
Each of the 4 colors are designed to provide specific benefits to the complexion – mauve to correct dullness/sallowness and conceal dark circles; mint green to reduce redness; pink to brighten; and white to add a touch of transparency and glow. The powder is tightly packed in its compact so it may feel somewhat “hard” to the touch. However, the enclosed brush does a fairly good job of picking it up, and it has very pretty pink bristles with a chic silver handle!
Diorsnow Rainbow Powder is very finely milled and goes on the skin light as air. The overall effect is very subtle, as you might imagine with a finishing powder. It gives an overall brightening effect to the complexion, the way Guerlain Meteorites Pearls does. It also blurs over imperfections such as pores and surface bumps to give the illusion of smoother and more even skin. The only real difference in my opinion is Diorsnow Rainbow Powder provides additional mattifying benefit whilst retaining the glow, and does not turn cakey nor fade easily.
As with all other Diorsnow palettes, Le Neiges de Diorsnow Rainbow Powder comes in a matte white compact with silver trimmings, and a grey velvet pouch. It doesn’t get more ladylike than this! The Diorsnow 2015 First Blossom collection was supposed to be launched in Asia on 27 February, but due to stock availability, the official launch in Singapore has been delayed to mid-March. Regardless, most counters are already selling them upon request (display testers are unavailable yet), and the Le Neiges de Diorsnow 001 Rainbow Powder is already soldout at some counters. So do act fast if you’re at all interested! If you’re living outside of Asia and need help getting hold of this, feel free to give me a shout!
