Hope you're all well and that you've a good week at work, college, uni school etc!
Doing Project 10 Pan made me shop my make up collection and really think about which products I would like to get once my make up buying ban was over, and Dior Amber Diamond was top of my list!
I first heard of this product whilst watching Tanya Burr's videos on YouTube. She uses it in so many of her tutorials and it always looks so lovely on her that I had to get it!
I ordered it on line from Debenhams. It's quite a pricey product (£32.00 for 10g of product), but having tried it I think it's well worth it and better than any other highlighter I own!
On the packaging Dior call it an "Ultra Shimmering All Over Face Powder". I disagree with the "all over face" part. It's far too shimmery to apply all over your face, but as a highlight on the top of your cheekbones it looks beautiful. It's shimmery without being glittery and catches the light perfectly. The colours can also be used individually as a eye shadows, or a brow and inner corner highlight.
It comes with a velvet pouch that has Dior embossed onto it. I am not too sure if I will use the velvet pouch though as I think it would get dirty really quickly. Velvet and make up don't mix!
This is a beautiful product. You get 5 different shimmering shades you can use either individually or together.
For reference, I'm fake tanned and my skin tone is NC30 in MAC, so that's how the colours come up on me. I am applying this using my MAC 130 brush. It's a dense stippling brush, quite similar to the Real Techniques stippling brush.
I love the texture of this product. It's a powder product that feels silky and blends perfectly
Here are the colours blended together:
There's a rumour going round that Dior are discontinuing this product. I really hope that's not true! I love using it and am really glad I bought it. Even though it is expensive, I am sure it will last me ages.
And with Christmas coming up, I think this would be a great product to put on your Christmas list, or to buy for someone who loves make up!
Have any of you guys tried this? What's your favourite highlighting product?
