After trying out all types of highlighters I love this the best. I thought it was just overhyped but I tried it on in Sephora and now I understand! Itís sooooo beautiful when I apply this to my cheekbones. I get a gorgeous natural glow. I bought the Rose Diamond as well as the Amber Diamond and I absolutely love them. The Rose Diamond gets so little attention I was going to overlook it but decided to try it on and I love it even more than the Amber Diamond. This product needs more credit because itís just perfect on your cheekbones and makes you look soo beautiful. Definitely my holy grail highlighter! I highly recommend you go out and buy these now! If not at LEAST try them out!! Itís worth every penny and the packaging is just beautiful! They give you so much product it will last you a longtime!!
I'm in love with this palette. I had been lemming this for years and finally treated myself recently. And it's even more beautiful in person than I expected. When I first got it, I was in awe at the quality of the packaging, and upon opening it, saw just how pretty the colors are. Now, I'm a highlighter whore, and already found an HG in the Fresh Satin Luster highlighter palette, but I'm sure I can make room for this baby in my routine. I love that the shimmer goes on so, so finely, impossible to overdo, and just adds a slight boost of pink wherever I put it. I add it on top of blush, and sometimes on top of a cream highlighter (I know! I am a glowy makeup fiend, I have a problem) and it looks ethereal and lit-from-within. A fairy princess glow!
Also, this might be a little weird, but I use one of the darker pinky shades as eyeshadow! Gives me a little rosy, soft definition around my eyes. It gives me a kind of ladylike, Victorian rosy look, if that makes any sense.
I'm really torn about this product [maybe I just don't know how to put this on??] I love shimmer and using highlighters like the Dior floral palette a few years ago. But, using this makes me look oily/greasy. I've used different kinds of brushes and techniques - but it just doesn't look good on me - it comes out shiny, rather than shimmer. Also, I've concluded that the brick rose color - while lovely - isn't really complimentary to my Asian skin tone. So, not really the product's fault - but definitely a loser in my makeup drawer.
I'M IN LOVE. I can't rave about this product enough! I bought Amber Diamond earlier this spring and I use it weekly; it's great as a bronzer, highlighter, and even eyeshadow. I read an awful rumor on MUA that Dior is discontinuing their Shimmer Stars soon, so I frantically went out and bought Rose Diamond, because my priorities are high and I know what really matters in life. :D I am so glad I did, because it's just as perfect as its Amber counterpart, but different enough that I can justify owning both. Rose Diamond offers a very subtle, sheer glow of pale pink/white/lilac that is really hard to over-do. You never look glittery, just like you're naturally this luminous and lovely. As with Amber Diamond, it's fun to use some of the individual colors as highlighters for my eye looks. And of course when you swirl all the shades together, the effect is a beautiful, sheeny blush that I haven't seen in any other makeup line. If you're cool-toned at all, I highly recommend it.
This is luxe Dior at its best. The presentation is stunning, and the product itself feels high quality. Soft and finely milled, but not too loose or messy, and never chalky. It's shimmery, so use it sparingly. I myself don't mind some shimmer, so I do use the darker side as a blush on my NW20 skintone, and in this case I apply it with a natural hair brush to pick up more colour. If I choose to use it as a highlighter, I stick to the lighter end and use a duo fiber brush. The colour is shades of pink, and is relatively neutral rather than overly cool or warm. It's a versatile and pretty powder, definitely worth picking up if you like highlighters. I hear it will be discontinued soon, along with Amber Diamond, but I'm not sure if this is official. In any case, pick it up now while you can.
I had a mini-makeover at a CD counter, and wanted to purchase a foundation. The counter had a GWP going on, so I was looking for an extra product and the MA suggested this to use underneath my blush. She swept it over my cheekbones, and then very lightly across the bridge of my nose and my forehead. It looked great. I used it on and off for a couple months, mostly to tone down too bright blushes and to give my face a glow. In my bathroom mirror it looked gorgeous. Then one day I happened to catch a glimpse of myself in bright sunlight. YOWZA. I looked like a big greaseball!! I played around with it a bit more, and I realized that it was just sitting on top of my skin, looking very very shiny, and giving my face a whitish cast. Sigh.
I still like nicely shimmering blushes since I'm still young, but I feel this blush is appropriate for all. I apply it lightly along my cheekbones and it gives the most pearlescent baby pink glow that I never could get in any other blush, no huge shimmer flecks here. I also feel that this product will last a long time. The price is steep but well worth it due to its fine milled quality and lack of cheaper dupes.
I was originally hoping to use this as a glowy blush, but the color payoff is nill on my NC35 skin. I have instead used it as a highlighter, especially in the winter to give my skin some sense of life. looks beautiful and not glittery at all. The particles are very finely milled. I also use it on top of matte blushes to give me a bit more of a shine. Perfect for day and night. I couldn't ask for more.
I was in a market for a subtle, powder highlighter and this Dior product ticked all the boxes. It does not settle in the wrinkles on top of my cheekbones (I am almost 35 and I am not getting any younger but I like to look that way haha!) just gives a nice, fresh glow without so called 'disco-ball' effect.
Dior product does not give me pimples (unlike Benefit's Dandelion, grrrr, I still have a mark onmy cheek after this one!) and is a real pleasure to use - the velvet pouch, the packaging, the big mirror, the lot.
I am working it either with a quick swipe of my finger or a Sephora slanted, big brush. I think it will last ages as a single swipe of a brush seems to be enough for both cheeks (otherwise it is too much for me). The lightest of stripes works also as a highlight in my eye makeup.
Lasts pretty much all day on its own and also makes my cream blush last longer.
I am seriously tempted by the bronzed version (which I have heard can be also used as an eyeshadow) and I am so glad that these are now permanent in Dior's makeup range! Excellent product.
I've had this for about 2 years and I find myself reaching for it at least a few times a week. And there is barely a dent in in the product! This particular color is a nice add on to blush or as a highlighter for the pale toned skin. Regular bronzers basically make my nw10ish skin look dirty, so this is a good alternative in that it adds some color and reflecting vibrancy, without being OTT glittery or too bronzey. Good for Summer looks especially and I always rec this to pale gals in the place of a regular bronzer. The compact has five colors in it, and the lighter shades are excellent for brushing over e/s or as a general highlighter, and the rest is good for an all over healthy glow. The chunky blue compact comes in the little luxe type velvet sack, no brush. It does cost $45.00 but I swear this product will last you forever.
