Shine bright like a diamond!
In honour of the Too Faced Pretty Rich collection, I’m reviewing the highlighter that inspired the collection – the Diamond Light Multi-Use Highlighter in Diamond Fire.
Diamond Fire comes in a cute pink jewelry box-like compact with satin-y lining on the inside. The powder itself is pressed to look like a square-cut diamond with “Too Faced ” embossed right in the middle. This hefty highlight contains 12 g of product, which is pretty sizeable (for reference, a BECCA highlighter contains 8 g of product).
In the box the highlight has a beautiful rainbow shift, featuring colours like purple, blue and yellow.
I applied the highlight with my trusty Morphe M501 brush. I dipped in for a second application because I didn’t see as much *pow* as I had imagined in my head.
When worn, it is a pearly blue highlight, which is why I compared it to white and blue highlights from my collection. Formula-wise it’s not as metallic as the NYX highlight in Twilight Tint, and it’s not as sink-into-the-skin glow-y like the Stila highlight in Opulence…it’s somewhere in the middle.
I was really hoping that the incredible colour shift you see in the box would translate to my cheeks, but unfortunately, it didn’t. That being said, it’s still a nice pale highlight that isn’t too reflective but isn’t too natural. I’m a huge fan of Too Faced, so I’ll definitely continue to use Diamond Fire.
