Dior Grand Bal Gold Shimmer Powder for Holiday 2012

Dior Grand Ball Gold Shimmer Powder is an extension of Dior’s Grand Bal Holiday 2012 Collection and available exclusively at Nordstrom and

I don’t need more gold shimmer in life because at this point I have enough to fill my pool with it to the six foot mark. But come on, gold, shimmer, holidays, Dior, jebus how much will power do you think I have?

I need this!

This delicate gold shimmering powder can be dusted on cheekbones, shoulders, neckline, or anywhere you want a touch of festive sparkle! It’s actually scented as well and includes a mini kabuki for application. You see, the mini kabuki, that kinda sold it to me…I mean I was just on the peak of saying, “I don’t need another gold sparkle powder!” than they go and say it comes with a bloody kabuki brush.

Crushing how little willpower I have.

I ordered it.

For shame! Every single purchase I made over the course of the last week has been privy to the excuse, “Oh this a little Christmas present from you to you!” Poor excuse, really poor excuse!

This delightful little treat is $45 and available exclusively from our friends at Nordies.

Do you need it?

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    same problem for me too, “oh, i’ll just order it for myself for christmas” and end up with a TON of stuff! zero willpower!

    • the Muse

      I’m awful! I order stuff and proceed to buy one for myself and one for the recipient. horrible!
