This is good stuff!
I use this everyday and i have nothing else to say. Other reviews have said what I have to say. One of my ultimate favorite <3
This is my first review. I have written this as a product has inspired me. I love this stuff, I am addicted to finding glowy skin. I have tried Nars Cocacabana, Mac vanilla pigment, Mac soft and gentle, Mac by Candlelight benefit moonbeam and many others, some of them are pretty good, but I feel like now I will be able to stop looking for the perfect highlighter. Dior Amber Diamond is it. I use Estee Lauder double wear as I love the coverage, but the finish is a bit matt for my liking. But Amber Diamonds solves this and adds the loveliest and quite noticable glow. (I don't want to be spending this sort of money for it to only be noticable in certain lights). In other words this is my new best friend and will be going everywhere with me. Thank you Pixi2woo for intoducing me to it on youtube.
I have had this product for a while, so I decided its time to write my review. First of all - this stuff is expensive. But I guess the price doesnt matter when i get the results it gives me. As previously reported in past reviews - there is absolutely no chunky shimmer or glitter in this whatsoever. It is so finely milled. This imparts such a gorgeous pale peachy-gold glow to my cheeks and whenever I wear it, everyone asks me what im doing to my skin, or what im wearing to make it glow so much. You can wear this alone for a subtle neutral glow, or you can add this just to the cheekbones, with some contour underneath for a more defined look, or you can add this on top of blush for an added layer of oomph. Sometimes i use this to highlight the inner corners of my eye, and a teenie bit down the bridge of my nose for an overall glow to my skin. So yea, this product is definitely not cheap, but I havent even made a dent in it, and im sure it will last for quite a few years. But if/when I run out - i would not think twice about repurchasing this.
Absolutely incredible highlighter! leaves a golden glow that just blends into your skin. no weird glitter. can wear it everyday to business school nad its never over the top!
Best highlighter ever!! Gives you a incredible glow. Nothing like it out of all the other highlighters I have tried. A lot of product that will last long totally worth it!! Go buy it now!! I am already thinkin about buying backups not that I even made a dent in it!
Love this highlighter. It goes well with my bare minerals warmth (that I use as a blush). It's quite pricey, but a little goes a long way. Definitely recommend it.
This is my favorite highlighter! I own both Amber Diamond (002) and Rose Diamond (001) and they're both gorgeous. They're not like some products which uses excessive amounts of glitter all over your face (like in some mineral all over finishes). This is a subtle glow on your face.
I was a little skeptical about spending $44 US for each, but honestly it's a wonderful investment that will last you for years. I've had both products for 3-4 months and it doesn't look like I've touched it. (I've used one or the other everyday) There's a lot of product in these and you do not need very much each time.
I heard that MAC's Mineralized Skin Finish (MSF) were comparable to Dior Shimmer Stars, however, MAC MSF are more shimmery and not work appropriate. The MAC MSF also contain a chemical sunscreen (ethylhexyl methoxycinnamate), which I'm highly allergic to (creating hives) and the Dior Shimmer Stars do not. So I'm grateful for that. If the MAC MSFs do not work for you, I highly suggest you try Dior Shimmer Stars. :)
ALSO to mention, these can be a multi-functioning product. You can use them for eyeshadow(neutral look), as a highlighter under the brow bone, and a highlighter over your face!
OH MY GOD!!!! I love this product. Amazing. Yes, it is super expensive, but I've found I can use it on my eyes and my face. The darker shades make great lid colours, and the lighter shades make the most amazing tearduct and brow highlight. And my favourite cheek highlight is to mix all the colours together. And I sometimes like to add a little bit over the top of my matte blushes to give them some shine. I would definitely buy this product again and again and again. Although I think it will last me forever so I may not need to.
It took me a while to fall in love with this product. At first I could not really see the difference because I was only looking in my bathroom light. as soon as I go outside or to the local market everyone comments on how great my skin is, and my skin IS NOT GREAT. I recently used this in my boyfriends bathroom that has better lighting and natural light and I can totally see how spectacular this highlighter is. I am so glad I didn't return it because it is the perfect natural highlighter that gives a great golden-esk SHEEN not glitter. Makes my skin look healthy and beautiful. Worth the crazy high price tag, and I can't imagine needing to buy again for another year or two.
This is a beautiful compact. Comes in a velvety case (no brush). Was $45.00 but I used my $15.00 off Sephora coupon. It IS gorgeous and has very finely milled shimmer. Perfect for the grown woman...BUT, this wasnt spectacular. I didnt get any compliments of, "oh, you look like you have candlelight following you..." or anything. Actually, I dont think anybody even noticed?!! Which brings me to the "No" I would not repurchase. I have the Revlon SkinLights in Gold and it gives the same effect but this is one step up. I just prefer this because powder is easier to apply for me. I DO love it and will keep it even though the price is atrocious but I can see this lasting FOREVER. Great highlighter but will not repurchase. Looking into Kevyn Aucoins Candelight...
