Review - Dior Rose Diamond Highlighter

Hi everyone :0)

I have been meaning to review this for some time but not had chance!  There was a lot of talk online about the Dior highlighting powers, mainly the Ambre Diamond.  Because I have Mac Soft & Gentle, I thought it would be a waste, which it why I went for the Rose Diamond  - a lovely pink highlighting powder.

The packaging with Dior as always is gorgeous!  It does come with a velvet pouch, but I find it gets mucky in my make up bag :0(

The thing I like about is there are 4 colours in the powder - so you have the option of mixing them all altogether or just using one of the colours.  For this reason I would say the Ambre Diamond is good if you don't have a similar highlighter like me - because you can use these also on your brow bone & tear duct.

For applying this, I find my Real Techniques Stippling brush is best, as I find highlighters work when pressed into the skin rather than brushed.

I do love this, however I do prefer a more bronze toned highlighter, so I tend to use my Mac one more, but this one is great for nights out, and also looks fab if you have a tan! When I am a bit pale, it can look too bright on me - fair skinned gals note!  I would also say these are similar to the Bobbi Brown Shimmer bricks.

Do you use this?  What other highlighters would you recommend?
