Pink Highlighters and Face Powders

Spring is the perfect time to add a touch of pink to your makeup routine. Here is a sampling of some pink-toned highlighters and face powders:

(Correction: The Laura Mercier Shimmberblock pictured below was mislabeled - it is actually Pink Mosaic not Orchid.)

Although Paul & Joe's Canyon Face Powder is described as a "clear pink," as you can see by the swatch, it leans toward the peachy side and doesn't have a lot of shimmer in comparison to the others.

  1. Laura Mercier Pink Mosaic Shimmer Block
  2. Becca Shimmer Powder Princess
  3. Paul & Joe Beaute Face Powder 16 Canyon
  4. Sephora Pink / Rose Highlighting Powder
  5. Bobbi Brown Rose Shimmer Brick
  6. Christian Dior Rose Diamond Shimmer Powder
  7. Chantecaille Lumiere de Rose Face Highlighter

  1. Hi :)

    I have a question about 2 of the products listed above, because i cant seem to pick which one i want :D

    i tried laura mercier's shimmer bloc in the store and really loved the glow. Is it similar to the Dior one? because there wasnt a tester availible and i have read many good things about that one too. Whats the main difference about the two.. and which would you recommend for medium skintone. Thanks in advance! :)

  2. Hi! :) The Laura Mercier is $38 vs. $44 for the Dior. The texture of the Dior is a bit more finely-milled. Either of these would work great on medium skintones. If you prefer more of a noticeable shimmer I would go with the Laura Mercier.
