I'd been coveting DIOR's Amber Diamond for the longest time and I was actually planning on saving up my Boots points to purchase it, until Yu informed me that it was rumoured Dior was discontinuing their shimmer powders. So I did what any makeup addict would do - went into panic mode - I searched online until I found it available on the Debenhams website and ordered it there and then. And I'm happy to report, Amber Diamond is just as beautiful in real life as I'd hoped. The powder consists of five stunning shades - ranging from a light champagne to a golden bronze. I like to sweep my brush through the powder, mixing all 5 shades, which creates a beautiful, soft, golden highlight. The powder is so finely milled, it applies like a dream, and it has just the right ammount of shimmer to highlight cheekbones without looking too glittery or frosty. At £32, Amber Diamond is pricey, but it's truly beautiful and even though it turns out it isn't going to be discontinued in the UK, (thank goodness!) I'm so pleased I finally decided to purchase it.
