I really wanted the Rose Shimmer but couldn't justify buying another pinky shimmer (I love them so much!) So I decided to buy Amber instead, since it was the beginning of summer and I thought it'd give me a nice warm weather glow. I don't like to use bronzer very much because it always just makes me look ruddy (I have naturally very pale skin). Well, you don't really get much of a tint out of this but I layer it on top of a coral colored blush and it has been a great summer look for me. I also like that it isn't too shimmery, just gives you that dewy look we all love. I have used this everyday this summer, mostly on my cheeks but also occasionally on my forehead and chin, and it barely looks like the compact has even been used. I sometimes swipe the lighter 2 colors over my eyeshadow as well. This product is lovely and will last a long time. I actually don't like the look of the compact very much, I liked the older look better. To me the huge "Dior" on the outside just seems a little tacky...

This shimmer powder looks beautiful on almost anyone's skin tone. I use it to highlight my cheek bones and occasionally I use it right under my brows. The packaging is very, very, weak though. Don't travel with it-- it breaks very easily

Like many others I love this product! It gives my skintone a beautiful glow. But it's too fragile and after I broke it I have to buy second one.

oh Amber Diamond,how i love thee! after trying MAC Soft & Gentle MSF,BB Copper Diamond shimmerbrick,cream & liquid highlighters.. i love this the best. after experimenting with this for more than a month, this is def. my HG highlighter atm. man, this stuff made me GLOW. =)

Pros: love this stuff because it's glowy, highlights your cheekbones awesomely,not OTT shimmer like *cough* BB shimmerbrick *cough*
good staying power & not as fragile as MAC MSF. classy packaging & you get lots of products in the compact (10g).. the powder is very finely milled & def. very blendable. the colors work wonderfully together.
one more thing is that the colors are not flat,they have more dimension to it not like other highlighters i have tried.

Cons: the price! expensive imo but worth it.. wish it's cheaper tho..

Colors: there are 5 stripes in Amber Diamond. starting from the left is shimmery ivory (like NARS Albatross), champagne (like MAC Soft & Gentle), tan, bronze & peach. love all the colors! swirled together,it produce a lovely gold w/ champagne or bronze tones highlight hue. *swoon*

Packaging: in a classy midnight blue rectangle compact with 'Dior' written in front of it. i don't think this is safe to bring for travelling tho coz it's fragile..

i wear this very often as it suits my complexion very well. not OTT yet you can see it's glowing naturally on the face. this is a staple in my m/u collec. this is awesome to pair with any blushes & suits all kinds of looks.now, i'll hunt for the Dior Copper Diamond...

Repurchase: yep! ♥

Reference: NC35/40. tan skin w/ yellow or golden tones. dark brown eyes & hair. dry & sensitive skin.

LOOOOOOOVE THIS!!!! This is my favorite highlighter of all time!!! Its appropriate for day and evening because it doesn't have the sparkly nonsense like some other highlighters. This gives the perfect GLOW. Its absolutely beautiful. The first time I bought this, I dropped it and it broke into a pieces - it was tragic. After using whatever was left, I immediately went out to re-purchase this. Highly highly recommend this. = )

This is a gorgeous highlighter. I absolutely hate glitter and this powder provides a beautiful glow with no sparkles whatsoever. There is very little colour to this powder really so it works nicely with both cool and warm toned blushes if using on top of cheeks. For late nights when I am super tired the next day this powder just makes me glow. Highly recommend!

I love this highlighter! Its so finely milled and the shimmer isn't OTT. Its just awesome glowy, goodness. On my NC45 skin, this looks perfect on my cheekbones, temples, the bridge of my nose and my chin. I look pretty, glowy and with an amazing sheen to my skin, not like a glitterbomb exploded all over my face. This is one of my favorite beauty products and i wholeheartedly recommend.
