I love this, but mine shattered into a zillion pieces after only owning it a short time. Argh. I am not rough with my stuff either.....Very frustrating.
I love this product! I have the rose diamond shimmer powder as well and they are both awesome! I like the fact that you can use them as a blush, bronzer, or highlighter. I am very fair (mac nc15) and I can wear this as a bronzer, but I can also use a mac 188 brush and get just the two lightest shades and use it as a highlighter on my cheekbones. This product is not too glittery or over the top. The shimmer in it is very refined and high quality, which I love:) I would definitely recommend this.
This is definitely a lovely highlighter, but I don't know that it's worth its price. This is fairly subtle, but I can definitely see individual flecks in certain lighting. This is not very pigmented, which is good for people who are afraid to overdo things, but I find myself having to swatch more than once for a good payoff. I do love the different colors in the one compact and I use the different stripes for different areas of my face.
This is my favorite highlighter thus far. I do need to say that I still see little shimmery particles on my cheeks when applied, not as finely milled as I had read about (but much better than MSF's - blows By Candlelight and Nars Albatross out of the water). I wish they would come out with a very very finely milled highlighter that would provide a true halo effect without ANY type of glitter(no matter how small)..I have to say this is VERY CLOSE.
The price is the real downfall for this product..$44 at Sephora..hmm. IMHO..this shouldn't be priced more than $30-$32. It's quite beautiful and will put it to good use..but $44 is simply outrageous.
There would be no reason to repurchase this unless I shattered it because "a little goes a long way". If you had to buy ANY highlighter out of all that have been made thus far..I would recommend you invest in this one.
I am in love with this highlight! I have macs MSF in shimpagne which is my HG!!! It is the most amazing highlight! So I wasn't sure if I should get this because I didn't know if they were similar. Shimpagne is a bit more chunky, Dior is more finely milled so it a lot better to use during the day. It gives you the most beautiful glow I love this so so so much! This is one of the most expensive highlights I have ever bought but It is well worth it! Pick this one up ladies you won't be disappointed!
This is by far the most expensive make-up product I have purchased, but I am so glad I did! This is my second powder highlighter and I LOVE IT!!!!!!! It just gives you such a beautiful but natural glow and the packaging is like none other. I like that I can get adjust the level of sheen by swirling my brush in all or just a few of the color strips. I tend to use the darker strips on the top of my cheekbones and leave the lighter colors for a brow highlight or the inner corner of my eyes. If I am in rush I just swipe my brush across the palette and I am good to go. This is by far my best purchase this year and plan on using it for as long as it is around, which I hope is for a very long time! By the way, my skin tone falls between tan and dark and I have combo/acne prone skin.
I got this as a gift from my aunt and wow i love this.
When I first got it, I didn't really know much about highlighters so I was like..ok I don't need this. So I didn't even use it for so long! But this summer, I actually got really interested in highlighters so I gave this a try.
and wowwwwww I love it.
I would actually repurchase this too! which is pretty crazy for me. I still want to try out Nars' Albatross but this is probably better.
You just get a really great sheen and I 've been using this instead of bllush which I really like.
WOW. I have so many highlighters, but have heard great things about this one from YouTube guru's and bloggers. I was reluctant on buying it because I couldn't justify the need for another highlighter after swatching it on my hand, and not noticing anything extraordinary about it. Finally, I gave in and purchased it.
I apply it from the tops of my cheeks to my temples in a "c" shape using the mac 188 stippling brush. The product applies like a DREAM. It truly puts my face together by giving it that healthy iridescence. The is SO different from my other highlighters (in the best way possible) - I would repurchase in a HEARTBEAT!
Also, I have found that this does not irritate my skin at all, something that is rare for me, as almost everything 'shimmer/glitter/highlight, etc.' seems to irritate my skin, leaving small bumps at the end of the night.

Hands down the best highlighter I have ever purchased! The glow is extremely natural. The colors compliment each other perfectly...blending into the perfect warm face highlighter. Yes, it is pricey...but oh so worth every penny. :)
The Dior amber Poudre Shimmer is the best highlighter i ever invested. It promise a healthy natural glow that radiates from within your skin and it has never fails to delights me whenever i put it on. I used it as a highlight my cheekbones, brow bone and on the bridge of my nose or as a eyeshadow compact. I love to layer it over a peachy blush to give me a lovely healthy glow in my face.I suggest to apply in natural light instead of bathroom light as the shimmer will be more noticeable and reduce the tendency to over apply it. Very versatile 2 in 1 product and i highly recommend all ladies to own this in her stash.
