A Touch of Radiance with Dior Transat: Diorskin Nude Shimmer 001 Rose & Diorskin Nude Tan 001 Transat Edition

Dior Diorskin Nude Tan Transat Edition, Diorskin Nude Shimmer 001 Rose

Imagine luminous skin bathing in the sun… Fresh pink cheeks and glowy cheek bones… Does that make you happy already?With *Diorskin Nude Shimmer 001 Rose and *Diorskin Nude Tan 001 Transat Edition, you are guaranteed to have that beautiful glow!

Dior Diorskin Nude Shimmer 001 Rose

When swirled together, Dior Diorskin Nude Shimmer 001 Rose (RRP: 57 euros. In English it is called Pink) is a fresh berry pink blush. The finely-milled powder is so soft that it seems powdery in the swatch, but on the face it doesn’t look that way. The glowy finish is a smidgen frosty, but only barely so. The slightly drier powder looks fine on my normal cheeks. However, if you have pore/dry skin concerns, you might want to have it applied at the counter to see how it fares!

Here is how Diorskin Nude Shimmer Rose/Pink swatches. The first two stripes are the two shades swatched separately, and the third stripe is everything swirled together:

Here is how it looks blended out:

Despite being a lighter shade, Diorskin Nude Shimmer Rose/Pink doesn’t require much building up at all to show up on my fair-medium skin tone. For me personally, it glows just enough so that I don’t need a separate highlighter, but not so much that it is visibly sparkling! It also has great lasting power. With or without a powder on top, it could stretch past a normal working day!

Dior Diorskin Nude Tan Transat Edition brush

If you crave for more light, maybe Dior Diorskin Nude Tan 001 Transat Edition could be your answer! It comes with a white kabuki brush that is a little softer than the regular brown/black one (not that I would call the regular one stiff though. I use the ones I have all the time with bronzer and powder foundation). Something I have to mention is the velvet sleeve you usually get with these kabuki brushes is nowhere in sight with these two. The compacts do still come with a pouch though!

To tie in with the nautical theme, Diorskin Nude Tan 001 Transat Edition comes with a rope pattern. The powder feels creamy, and you barely need any product at all for quite a glistening effect!

Diorskin Nude Tan 001 Transat Edition is a pale gold. The shimmer itself is rather fine, but the high-shine finish is not what I would call subtle. I barely have to dip my brush into the pan to have enough product to work with, so remember to use a really light hand and a brush that allows more precise application. Those who have combination/oily skin might want to take extra precaution. I have combination skin myself, and I prefer to restrict this to the top of my cheekbones.

What would a Mostly Sunny post be without some photos for you to see how something looks on, right? Here I have Diorskin Nude Shimmer Rose/Pink on my cheeks, and Diorskin Nude Tan 001 Transat Edition on the top of my cheekbones. I also swiped whatever was left on my brush on my forehead and nose bridge.

  • expatmuaddict

    I think the pink is really lovely, have always been a fan of this style of Dior compact

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Stacey, yeah this is definitely a great one to look at :)

  • http://redhotjillypeppers.com/ Redhotjillypeppers

    The tan one looks great !

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      It’ll make you look like a sparkling beach goddess!

  • http://www.nailsandcupcakes.com/ Isabelle

    These are just so luxurious!!! The highlighter is probably not my cup of tea, but the blush.. This love is still going! I’ve been obsessed with having a healthy glow lately.. Must be Spring kicking in!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha I knew you’d fall in love with the blush! It is definitely one of the more glowy blushes I own, but not in an over-the-top way!

  • peggy timmermans

    Diorskin Nude Tan 001 Transat Edition that’s the one I love the most! And I’m digging to get it too :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      It’s a very flashy highlighter! Makes me want to run on the beach Hollywood-style 😉

  • http://www.abeautifulzen.blogspot.ca/ jenn @Abeautifulzen

    yes to 002!!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Huh what? You mean the blush? That’s 001 :p

      • http://www.abeautifulzen.blogspot.ca/ jenn @Abeautifulzen

        yes lol…the blush hahaha. the funny thing is i actually went back to the post to make sure i was referencing the right thing…still typed it wrong…

        • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

          Haha no problem. I kinda wish these had more distinctive names. I’m pretty good at remembering product names, but these are just called “the pink blush” and “the highlighter” in my head :p

  • Icaria

    OMGosh Sunny, your skin looks amazing!!! Rose/Pink is on my list of items I want for spring/summer and so I can’t wait to see it in person. I think it’s what I was hoping Chanel Préface would be. Préface was too matte for the effect I wanted. :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Aww thanks, Helene! Isn’t Preface more or less a finishing powder though? I’m not sure it’s comparable with this blush!

      • Icaria

        Yes that’s what it turned out to be. I thought from the pictures that first surfaced of it that it would be a good one to create that first light “sun pinked look” You know when you overdo it on sun those first days of spring? As a finishing powder it didn’t work too well for me but I get the feeling that Rose Pink just might work for the effect I want to create. Can’t wait to see it in real life! :)

  • Lola Seicento

    Nude Shimmer Rose/Pink is just stunning!!!!!!!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      I wasn’t sure it’d show up easily on my skin tone, but it totally does! It’ll work well for the fairer ladies as well. I just KNOW 😉

  • 38noodles

    These really give your skin a beautiful glow! I have waaay too many highlighters, I’m going to try my best to skip these… *jinx myself*

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, girl! You have to tread very VERY carefully with this highlighter. I’m pretty sure it’ll last anyone 2 lifetimes because you need SO little each time!

  • http://eyespaintedblack.com/ Natasja

    I think both products look really good. I like that the first one also comes with a kabuki brush, you know, considering the price.. it’s a nice bonus. I love both looks, especially the second :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Natasja, they both come with a brush! All these Dior compacts do. I own several now, and I use them for bronzers as well as powder foundations 😉

  • http://beautyreductionista.blogspot.ca/ Liz

    Ugh, these are so beautiful. I was originally gunning for these, but reviews are starting to make it apparent that they’re the last thing I need. Don’t need another highlighter and drowning in blushes, lol. I might get a Fluid Stick down the line though. You look great, Sunny!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha yeah if you already have enough highlighters and brushes, maybe a Fluid Stick should be the priority. I am personally CRAZY about the formula, though I guess everyone’s experience is different because I’ve read mixed reviews.

  • silverkis

    Argh… Dior is going to be the death of me this year!!! How many gorgeous cheek stuff are they gonna turn out??! I already have that golden shimmer one… and now this blush looks so beautiful! Of course those smouldering selfies are just pushing me over the edge! LOVE!!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hahaha I KNOW, RIGHT? For the past week I bought a Fluid Stick, an Addict Extreme, AND a Vernis. I’m pretty sure it won’t stop there, either!

      Thanks so much for the kind words, girl 😉 I wasn’t gunning for smoldering though hahaha

  • http://www.lenallure.com/ Lena L

    Bronzers don’t interest me on a reality level cause I never wear them, but these are so pretty!
    I could definitely use the pink one. There is this perfect amount of sheer gold and warmth mixed in it. Beautiful! :)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Lena, it’s probably because none of these is a bronzer LOL

      I think the blush will be right up your alley!

  • http://www.beautyfrontline.com/ Beauty Frontline

    Such a pretty ones

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Yeah they’re really nice to look at for sure :)

  • http://beautyreflectionsblog.com TracyBeautyReflections

    That blush is gorgeous! And so is the highlighter! they both look pretty amazing on you! Dior’s summer stuff is always so good.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Tracy! Oh I still use Coral Glow from last year. What a stunner :)

  • Dominique33

    I will purchase both Nude Shimmer ( Amber and Rose ), so beautiful ! The bronzer is more a golden powder than a bronzing one but it’s still very pretty^^

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Dominique, this is definitely a highlighter, not a bronzer. I think it’s a good idea though. They basically JUST released some new bronzers. Launching more now might just be an overkill.

  • fancie

    Both powders are absolutely beautiful! My goodness I want them both lol

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha it’s hard not to want these!

  • http://eyeheartit.blogspot.com Larie

    Your skin is looking gorgeous, Sunny! I like both of them :X

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Larie! You should swatch these when they come out :)

  • http://www.bellachique.be/ Teri

    It looks quite subtle on the skin. Which is a very big plus to me ^^. I can’t wait to try both of these when I’m back to normal again ^^.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Teri, you mean the highlighter? It’s more visible in real life, but if you use a very very light hand, you won’t turn into a disco ball!

  • http://www.beautyaddiction1.blogspot.co.uk/ syrena85

    I love the way they swatch. On the skin they look very delicate but I believe it would be more visible in a real life rather than from photo. Did you have a chance to try the Amber Shimmer?

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Irena, yeah that’s the thing with cheek products. They’re always more visible in real life!

      I actually found Amber on display yesterday (don’t know why, since the collection isn’t due out for a few more days). In terms of texture, it is very similar to Pink (finely-milled and on the drier side). I thought it’d be “darker” in a way, but it actually isn’t by much. The orange tone is obvious though. I’m not sure if that’s something you’d want!

  • http://www.thepaintedrogue.wordpress.com Syirael

    Such a pretty look :-) that highlighter is epically shimmery! I can see why you have to be light with it 😀 (I glow in the dark anyway, so highlighters are something I haven’t really branched into yet, heh)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks so much, Syl!

      I used to skip highlighters, but a good one goes a long way! I think this might look more obviously golden on paler skin tones though.

      • http://www.thepaintedrogue.wordpress.com Syirael

        I did wonder. I remember being enchanted by that Chanel highlighter powder that came out recently in that LE collection (the one with the zen garden pattern on it – Jardin des camellias or something?) but we can’t get things from Chanel.com here, so I’ve had to wait and pine 😉 I would like to try the Becca shimmering skin Perfector in Pearl one day though!

        • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

          Hey Syl, I have Poudre Signee de Chanel (it’s also LE), and it is still my favorite highlighter. I have Becca Opal, but I just reach for a powder highlighter more often.

  • http://www.beautycabby.com/ lyn

    Very, very pretty! I was initially interested in the blush but I think the highlighter is more interesting.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Lyn, the highlighter is a really potent one! Definitely remember to use a light hand 😉

  • http://www.themistymom.com/ Shari

    I dont know why but Im so drawn to highlighters this year! Ackkk this one is something right up my alley – pale gold!! Wish it didnt have so much shimmer though! Or maybe its just in the photo? :) Ill have to check this one out in counter!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Shari, it actually is pretty shimmery in real life, too. I’d definitely encourage you to swatch it and decide if that’s within your comfort zone!

  • Jasmijn

    These look like the substitute for Dior Amber and Rose Diamond. Are they similar?

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Jasmijn, I don’t own those two, but from what I can see they aren’t that similar at all. Amber and Pink are more like blushes. Granted they have a glowy finish, they have too much “color” to function like highlighters. I hope this helps!

  • http://www.hellojaa.com/ Jaa

    I also thought these were a replacement for Dior Amber and Rose Diamond. I own both and while they are quite similar in concept, the actual products and swatches are quite different. I love the highlighter (and your lips) here!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Jaa, I am relatively sure these aren’t comparable to Amber and Rose Diamond. From what I can see, Pink and Amber are too “tinted” to be highlighters!

  • http://papayapieces.com/ Sofia

    Again, I think I REALLY like the Transat Edition! I haven’t got a highlighter at the moment so I might also check out to see if this will be my future highlighter (too many things I need to check out..)

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha yeah that’s the problem with April. I don’t even want to tell you how many things I have on my wish/shopping list for the moment!

  • http://rocaille-writes.blogspot.com/ Rocaille

    These look fantastic, Sunny! I especially like the idea of the pink one as a blush. So fresh and glowy!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Monika, I’m glad to see a cooler and a warmer shade this year! I still remember last year’s Coral Glow and Pink Glow with a lot of fondness, but I think girls with cooler undertones with appreciate Pink more!

  • http://nothingspaces.com Carina

    Both are so beautiful, Sunny! :) I have hit my limit of highlighters, but this one is soooo beautiful.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha with this one, you’ll have enough to last you two more lifetimes since you barely need ANY for it to work.

  • SprinklesOnACupcake

    Oh, I love them both, so pretty!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Yeah they are! Very glowy!

  • ValleyDoll

    WAUW ! I was thinking today that I didn’t need any more highlighters. Totally changed my mind after seeing these 2 beauties !

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha swatch them! They should be out any day now!

  • http://girlbehindglasses.wordpress.com/ Nikki P.

    They’re so pretty on the pan! Wouldn’t want to touch them.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      The pattern doesn’t disappear too soon though! I used Cabine wet, and still the pattern isn’t too messed up!

  • Missyrocks

    Good review. Concerned because Illamasqua & Becca is too finely milled and settle in pores on me as pretty as these look. Pretty on you!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Thanks! Maybe you can have it applied at the counter to see how the powder sits on your skin?

  • Missyrocks

    Yes, makes sense. But was just asking because the real finely milled powders aren’t good on me despite having good skin and not large pores. Just draws attention I don’t want. But insightful review that was helpful. Thank you!

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      You’re welcome! I don’t really have a pore problem, either, but a while ago (around the time I was playing with these) my skin was having its annual spring freak-out. That’s why I noticed Rose could look a little drier on!

  • http://www.adoretoadorn.com/ nancy @ adore to adorn

    I hear such good things. It literally makes me want to go out and purchase some right now! Thanks for posting the swatches!



    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Haha it is pretty shimmery though! A very, very light hand is a must 😉
