Thank goodness my sister turned me onto this! Not much else can be said, other reviewers have really said it all. Simply put, AMAZING!!! Totally worth the price and the packaging is so pretty. Love it! :)
Every makeup fanatic should have this in their bag of makeup tricks. This gives an instant pick me up for the skin. This is subtle enough for all seasons and great not only for the face but shoulders and what a great way to enhance the cleavage :) The color in the pan almost shouts bronzer but this isn't one. This is clearly a light reflecting highlight that creates a lit from within glow. This is a live saver for when you might be feeling under the weather or have a cold. Swipe this on and Bam, you got life back into your skin. I use this as my final step in makeup application. I swirl my ecotools powder brush around all the colors and dust it on the areas that need a little more life. It looks very shimmery in the pan, but because it's so finely milled, you don't really see all that glitz on the skin. This highlight is expensive at $44.00 but it is Dior and it comes with a pretty velvet pouch and looks very nice on a vanity.
after reading lots of reviews about this product and watching youtube tutorials, i decided to go ahead and spend $55 (this is the price in my country) on this product. i have pretty oily skin so i'm not really much into highlighters, but when i swatched this on my hand, i decided i had to have it. while i was in the shop, i swatched highlighters from some other brands as well (clinique, chanel, clarins, collistar...), but none of them had shimmer as fine as this one. i think some others (primarily chanel) were almost glittery, which i do not like at all.
the packaging is very nice and elegant and holds 10 grams of product which is a lot in my opinion, and considering that i only use a little on my temple and the top of my cheeks, i believe it will last for years.
last night i applied it and my boyfriend (who thinks eyeshadow is actually lipgloss :D) said: wow, you look really fresh. that's when i realized i hadn't made a mistake buying it. the texture is really nice, not too soft so that it crumbles and not too hard so that there is nothing on the brush when i swipe it over the product. this color is something like light champagne, but it leaves almost no color on so i use it with all my blush colors (bronze, peach, pink...).
I have wanted this highlighter for months. I see Tanya (pixi2woo) using it all the time and raving about it on youtube. I wanted it before I even started watching her, but then she made me want it even more! I finally caved in a forked over the $42 (for a highlight!) and I have to say - IT IS WORTH IT! I have fairly decent skin all over except for my chin - full of hormonal acne at the moment - painful and ugly. I can't really explain how wonderful amber diamonds makes me feel. My skin just glows and I feel like eyes are off of my blemishes. It's a step I never miss in my makeup routine - my face just looks so flat without it! I love the glow it imparts - not shimmery or glittery, just a glow. I also enjoy using this on the eyes on days when I want some sheen and definition. I'll swipe a brush through one of the darker colors and blend it into my crease and then highlight my brow and inner corner with the lightest. It makes me look so awake and fresh. $42 is the most I've ever spent on a makeup product (besides NARS sheer glow) and I am SO happy I did. I will never be without this stuff - it has replaced all of my favorite highlighters (pearl cream color base, high beam, retrospeck eyeshadow, vanilla pigment). I think everyone needs this product!!
This is the best product I've purchased in awhile. I like that its an extremely sheer champagne-colored highlighter that gives my face that lovely sheen. The product may look very shimmery in the pan, but when applied on your face it'll never end up like a glitter ball because the shimmer is soooo finely milled. I used to do my highlighting with MAC's By Candlelight, but the pink tones in it were too obvious and I looked like I made a boo boo with blusher all over my face. Amber Diamond also lasts all day on my combination-oily skin. I typically use my MAC 188 brush to sweep the product over my cheekbones, down the centre of my nose, and on my cupids bow. Yes, it is extremely expensive but I feel its worth it as you get a lot of product and I rather pay more for a quality item than waste money on many cheaper products that don't deliver. The packaging of the Amber DIamond is not that sturdy so I try to avoid travelling with it. (FYI: NC25 and 117 in MUFE HD)
I have been lemming this for ages,but the cost always put me off.I finally caved in yesterday and treated myself to a pre christmas present.Firstly,the packaging is gorgeous.It comes in a lovely blue case with is slotted into a blue velvet pouch and then all wrapped up in a lovely box.It looks gorgeous before you even open it! Inside,theres a good sized mirror and no silly brush so its all product.The powder itself is lovely,very finely milled and smooth and theres good pigmentation in the darker colours so it can be used as a bronzer as well as a highlight.
I am so pleased I finally took the plunge and bought this,its a lovely piece to add to my collection.
Most beautiful colour and sheen of any highlighter I've tried.
Dior really outdid themselves with this one, it makes your skin glow without chunky glitter or a white stripe.
I wouldn't repurchase because it is insanely priced, and I don't think I will ever run out!
OUTSTANDING!! Looks incredibly natural which is why I love it so much. So darn quick to apply, and it makes the face look amazing. This product is a must!! Looks amazing on the eyes as well!!!
I saw this on Temptalia's website and went to Nordstroms to get it and I am so glad I did. It's the best highlighter you will not be disappointed. I have tried MAC's Shell, Benefit's High Beam, Illamasqua's, etc. Go try it out and you too will be amazed.
Best highlighter! I have tried just about every luminizer/highlighter out there and this is the only one that is not a hot glitter mess. MAC Skinfinish had to much glitter and couldn't find the right shade. The compact has a range of shades from pearl to bronze - all perfect for olive skin tones.
