Dior’s Amber Diamond Skin Shimmer ($42.00) is my all-time favorite highlighter. It is such a phenomenally flattering combination of soft gold shimmer with bronze undertones. I think this product works well on all skin tones, but it will flatter warmer skin tones moreso than cool ones–like, let’s say instead of being a full 10/10, cool tones might find it just 8 or 9/10!
What makes this highlighter so great is the formula of the Skin Shimmer. It is a finely milled pressed powder that creates a natural, glowy sheen that’s never over the top. I’m medium-toned with warm under tones, and I find it gives me mostly shimmer, perhaps a slight bit of golden color on the cheeks. It definitely does not bronze me or darken my complexion, so for those with lighter skin tones, this is not a product to fear!
I think it must be clear this product is fully endorsed and recommended by me, considering I repurchased it. My first one broke into pieces while traveling to Hawaii this past summer, and while I smushed it all and pressed it with alcohol… it’s just not the same when it’s all mixed together (because there was just no way to separate the broken mess into definable colors like it comes!). I was just waiting for Sephora’s big sale so I could break down and get it. And now I can say… all is well again!
(I really need to get my hands on the Rose Skin Shimmer, though!)
