Dior Peach Lace Poudrier Dentelle from Spring 2010

Why does the UK and Asia get the prettier Dior product releases? When I saw the preview for Dior Spring, the Peach Lace highlighter was the first thing that jumped out to me. Of course the US only received the Pink Lace highlighter. Luckily, I was able to find Peach Lace 002 from a wonderful UK blogger (thank you again!!!). I just about died when I opened the compact. It’s even prettier than the pink one.


Here is the Pink Lace 001 that I purchased back in January compared to the Peach Lace 002 which I believe is exclusive to Asia and Europe.

Without flash:

Note that the swatches don’t photograph well, but this is the best I could get:



Here is the Peach Lace compared to a few other peachy highlighters including Dior Amber Diamond, Bobbi Brown Champagne Color Options (from a gazillion years ago), and MAC Drizzlegold Beauty Powder.



The Peach Lace Highlighter is gorgeous. I think it would have sold well in the US if it were released here. The swatch photos don’t do the product justice, but it has a lovely light beige-peach shimmer finish and glow that I find rare in many highlighters. Most lighter colored highlighters are too pale giving a whitish-cast on the skin because of the silvery pearl shimmers.

I love the Pink Lace Highlighter, but the Peach Lace is definitely the winner!

In case you missed it, I wrote about my Spring Picks from the Dior Collection back in January here.

    ACK! I thought I'd talked myself out of wanting the Pink one, but your swatch is gorgeous!

    Peach Lace looks gorgeous! Thanks for your great posts! Can you please tell me how this compares to Amber Diamond Highlighter? Thanks.

    I was wondering why I hadn't seen the peach lace one around. I would have prefered it over the pink lace too.

    Thanks for the pics!

    Oh great – another reason to be envious of cosmetic lovers across the seas!

    Hi Girls – I updated the post with a few more comparison.

    Simi – Amber Diamond is definitely amber and warmer in shimmer. The Peach Lace is paler. I couldn't capture the true color or shimmer in the swatch, but Peach Lace has a light beige iridescence like MAC Hush Eyeshadow. Amber Diamond has more color and is less frosty.

    HTH some!

    You can actually get the Dior Peach Lace Highlighter at izzysbeautyshoppe.com for $60 which includes tax. Shipping is expensive but if you spend over $100 it's free. I just purchased mine today, can't wait to get it. Thanks so much Sabrina! I couldn't help myself to get it!

    Ooh, the shimmer in Peach Lace is so much finer and less glittery than the other 3! Now I really want it!

    I bought the pink lace and have been very happy with it. Because I'm 61, I can't use full on shimmer, so I mix it with a bit of my Chanel loose powder and it gives my winter pale skin a lovely glow. I would love to get the peach lace for spring as my skin takes on a bit more color compliments of the California sun. I don't know why Dior didn't promote it in the US. The average skin tone of a person here is warm rather than cool. Had the peach been an option, I bet it would have flown off the shelves. What a missed opportunity!

    Thanks Imnmakeup for the on-line tip.

    Hello.
    I would like to ask which highlighter powders do you prefer most in term of quality between Dior Laces, Bobbi Brown Shimmerbricks, Dior Shimmer powder and Mac mineralize?

    Thank you.
