After being so impressed with Rose Diamond (link leads to my review), I had to pick up Dior’s Ultra-Shimmering All Over Face Powder in Amber Diamond too.
As you can probably see from the photos, where Rose Diamond is a pinky colour with a hint of lilac, Amber Diamond is a bronzey-amber colour. It can be used as a blush if you are fair like me, but I also like to place this blush on my cheeks and along my cheekbones with another, similar colour on the apples of my cheeks (Milani Luminous or Chanel Reflex look great with this). I like the ability to choose either the light or dark colours to apply to my face. I think this product (along with its Rose Diamond sibling) would be excellent for travel, as they constitute a blush and highlighter in one and look fantastic in photographs. You could use this as an all-over highlighter, but if you have combination skin like me you probably don’t need too.
This highlighter is very suitable for everyday use as it is not too glittery and instead imparts a very natural glow to the face. I love using this as an under-brow highlight too, and the darker colours make great eyeshadows. The only downside to this product is the price and the fact that you’ll have to reapply by mid-afternoon, but the product is so beautiful that I am prepared to overlook these two things.
If you’ve been looking for a highlighter that isn’t too greasy or glittery and is work appropriate and grown up, this might be just what you’ve been looking for.
The good news is that StrawberryNet.com have finally received their latest shipment of Dior’s Rose Diamond and Amber Diamond. Both are available for USD $48 (AUD $52) which includes shipping. Be warned that these products have a habit of selling out very quickly.
