Dior Ambre Lumiere (227) Addict Gloss

Dior Ambre Lumiere (227) Addict Gloss ($29.50 for 0.21 fl. oz.) is described as “peach copper shimmer.” It’s a warm-toned, medium copper-brown with peach and gold shimmer. MAC Get Rich Quick is similar but has less shimmer. Revlon Rosegold is a touch lighter (almost looks pinker on me). MAC Deliciously Demure is lighter. MAC Hearts-a-Beatin’ is a bit more plum in the base color.
