I’ve been trying some new Dior products recently, and one of my favorites so far is the oh-so-popular Shimmer Powder in Amber Diamond.  I have heard beauty bloggers rave about this powder as a highlighter for years now, so I decided to go ahead and try it myself.

Amber Diamond features five different shimmery colors: an almost-white, light champagne, bronze, rose gold, and peachy gold.  You can use these shades individually or mixed together.  I like that this powder offers a variety of different colors depending on what you are looking to use it for.  I like using this as both a face highlighter and eyeshadow.  The bronze/rose gold colors are gorgeous on the eyes, and the almost-white is great on the inner corner and brow bone.  All five colors work nicely for a face highlighter.

The formulation of this powder is really great, and the colors are a perfect balance of pigmented and sheer, since you don’t exactly want your highlighter to be entirely opaque.  The lightest two colors are hard to see in swatches on my fair skin, but they do look just as nice as the others.  The bronze and rose gold colors look extremely similar when applied.

Amber Diamond comes in Dior’s classic navy blue compact casing.

The Diorskin Shimmer Powders contain 10g/0.35 oz of product and retail for $45.  Dior products are expensive, but with 10g of this I know it will take me an eternity to use up.  This product is available wherever Dior makeup is sold… I found mine at Nordstrom.

Overall, I’m very pleased with this powder and will be getting a ton of use out of it this summer!  What is your favorite face highlighter?

xx, Allison
