The Glow of Dior

Spring is coming, so along with radiantly dewy skin, I think we all crave for that glow from within. Adding some shimmer and highlight can create that effortless angelic effect that I think would look beautiful for this time of year.


Yeah..I bought three. Lol I am in my highlighter phase.
Let's open these up~ they all come with their own individual pouches to protect them against dust


01 Rose Diamond
I wear this on top of pink blush as a highlight. It picks up an iridescent blue toned pink in the light. Really pretty, comes off a bit milky pink when swatched



02 Amber Diamond

I wear this with peach blushes or just on top of bronzer, definitely gives a beautiful sun kissed glow when put on top of the perfect bronzer, I tend to pull your hair up to really show my cheekbones with this one


04 Pop Diamond

I actually went back to Sephora to get this after I bought the first two. It is not listed on the website, or even has a display, but it is definitely there! A brighter more colorful version of rose diamond with a strip or orange down the middle.
This is limited edition and can also be worn alone as a sheer blush if you have quite fair skin


Swatch:
L-R: Amber, Pop, Rose


There is one other, 03 Copper Diamond which was limited edition. I had never seen it previously.

Overall these are gorgeous! You definitely don't need three of them ( I'm insane) but any of these items added to your collection can be used on top of any color or bronzer for a gorgeous shimmer effect.
These are not full of chocky/chunky pieces. It is a fine dusting of shimmer that when caught at the right angles and light creates a glorious luminance to your face.
I did have to swipe it around the brush a few times to get the effect I want, but I believe there is a lot of product in these, and should last a long time.
The pigmentation I think is better than MAC's MSF but not as good as NARS albatross, but these are so much prettier!

Enjoy!
