Pink Diamond

Anastasia Pink Diamond Stick Highlighter ($34.00 for 0.28 oz.) is a very light, almost white, pink with a very reflective, smooth sheen. It had medium, buildable pigmentation, as marketed, that applied well over bare skin or with a fingertip when working over foundation. When I used a brush over foundation, the formula was too quick to set and resulted in light patchiness.

The texture was lightweight, thin, and lightly emollient but quick to dry down to a powder-like finish that wasn’t yielding once it set, so I’d recommend working one area at a time. It stayed on well for seven and a half hours before fading noticeably.

Formula Overview

$34.00/0.28 oz. - $121.43 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have a "customizable glow" with an "ultra-smooth" consistency that "melts effortlessly" on skin. The coverage was described as "buildable," which was true--most shades were more medium to semi-opaque, but the more emollient nature of the product made it inclined to sheer out during practice, so they were more buildable once I started applying them to my face.

The consistency was lightly emollient, thin, and had good glide, but it was quick to dry down and set to a powder-like finish. It looked a little drier and wasn't as flattering to my normal-to-dry skin as other cream-to-powder formulas, so it may be more suitable for oilier skin types. I didn't have any issues with the product lifting up foundation, so it worked fine over bare skin as well as on top of complexion products--as long as I used my fingertips to apply and blend out.

Because of the quick dry down time, I found fingertips to be the most flexible and foolproof for applying the product. Using a brush was where the application was more prone to going on unevenly, bunching up, or lifting up base products. The formula lasted between seven and eight hours on me.

I like this a lot but I have so many similar, not dupes, that I feel like I am well covered. Gosh, I haven’t purchased something from ABH in a couple of years. I moved away from their shadow palettes because of too much powder in the pan and some fall out. I really only liked a couple of the liquid lips. I am a complete snob about some things and there is something about Norvina that just rubs me the wrong way. I know I am getting old when I think about my pettiness, LOL!
