Dior Amber Diamond

Hello sweethearts, 

Dior Amber Diamond is one of those products that i lusted after for months and months but in a way couldnt really justify the £32 price tag, however was thrilled when i received this for my birthday from my wonderful boyfriend (from my recommendation of course, hes not that good!)

Dior is a brand i own very little from make up wise, i do own a couple of pairs of sunglasses but this is my first cosmetic item but i class it is as a luxe, high end brand that is up their with the likes of Chanel.
It is a gorgeous highlighter, that actually markets itself as a all over face powder, although i find that it would be a tad too shimmery for all over the face. It is made up of five shades, from light to dark ranging from off white to peach.
I blogged recently about the Sleek MakeUP Glo which i do think is extremely comparable to the Dior Amber Diamond. 

The compact is the standard Dior compact case that is a shiny, navy blue with Dior embossed in silver on the top. It is also housed in a snazzy blue velvet pouch too to keep any scratches at bay. It really does feel luxe and a high quality product. Inside is a huge mirror which and of course the product itself.

Size wise you receive 10g of product for your money which i think is pretty reasonable and to and to put it into context is the same as NARS Laguna Bronzer. As i stated above this highlighter retails for £32 so is pretty pricey in my humble opinion, but it has a gorgeous sheen and does really give a lovely glow. 

Having said that, I didn't find it to be too overly pigmented and needed a little building up. The swatches were used with my finger that needed swiping over the compact a couple of times but a brush picks up the product much more easier. I must be honest and say i havent really reached for this highlighter as much as i probably should have and tend to opt more for the MAC Mineralize Skinfinish in perfect topping.

I have heard that they are actually discontinuing Dior Amber Diamond however i am unsure of how true this is.

Mine was actually purchased from Escentual which at £30.50 is a little cheaper than other retailers, and they also offer free shipping over £30 too and it arrived incredibly quickly. Other places you can buy it from are Debenhams and Selfridges.

I really do like this product but i dont think that this is a necessity in your make up bags by any means at all and it is something you can live without or find a cheaper alternative of.  However i am a sucker for pretty, expensive products and when i hear the word 'discontinued' i seem to want things a whole lot more. Just me? Didnt think so!

Have you tried Dior Amber Diamond? What do you think of it?

  1. i got the copper diamond instead (a while back) as it seemed to have a bit more "oomph" than the amber and i think this is why i've barely made a dent in mine despite lots of use! love the dior packaging, so shinyyy x

  2. This is my go to! I have banged on about this to you for ages! I love the seperate shades you get and on holiday I used them as eyeshadows. I don't think it will ever run out though as I have had it well over a year and no sign of a dent yet! xx

  7. I too am a sucker for anything so sparkly and beautiful looking! It looks divine though I don't think I could pay that price tag! I bet it makes one hell of a highlighter though, the colours are divine

  18. This is so, so pretty! I've been wanting to pick this up for quite a while now. I've very pale so I think this would be a highlighter that I'd only use when I'm tanned or wearing fake tan. It's gorgeous!! x
