Dior Amber Diamond

Today I bring you one of the most famous and beloved beauty products on the market: Dior's Amber Diamond! So many people raved about this highlighter, that I just had to have it. I bought this from Sephora about a year ago, and I have been loving it ever since. 

"This Spring Dior introduces Diorskin Shimmer Star, a light-filled pressed powder enriched with Jeweled Microdust™. These five micro-shimmering tones set off sparks of brilliance, highlighting your complexion. The ultra-fine, super-blendable formula virtually fuses with your skin for a sheer, radiant luminosity."

I absolutely love highlighters, and this one in particular gives my skin the most beautiful, radiant glow. This palette does include five different shades, but I personally like to swirl all of the shades together. I sweep this beautiful powder over my cheekbones, and down my nose. You can also use these as eye shadows, which makes this a great multi-purpose palette.

My favourite blushes to pair this highlighter over are NARS' Cactus Flower, NARS Lustre, Tarte's Natural Beauty, and Tarte's Exposed. While Amber Diamond might look like a bronzer in the palette, it doesn't add very much colour to your skin. This product simply adds a beautiful warm glow, rather than a bronzey finish. 

I definitely think that this product is worth both the hype and the splurge! I also have Dior's Rose Diamond, and while I love them both, I would choose Amber Diamond if I could only have one. Have you tried Dior's famous Amber Diamond? Do you think it's worth the hype? :)

  1. This is beautiful! I have not tried it, and I don't use much highlighters. But if I were to choose highlighters, they would be in powder form.

    1. Thanks! Powder highlighters are probably the easiest option to go with, and Amber Diamond applies flawlessly! :)

  2. I looove highlighters. I just got amber diamond two weeks back but it accentuated my pores :( a makeup artist advised me to use benefits porefessional underneath and it solved the problem :)
    I'm sure it must look gorgeous paired up with tart's exposed blush.
