When it comes to a subtle sheen, there feels like there are a million highlighters out there. Whether you’re after a powder, gel or liquid formula, spin around the beauty aisles, and chances are you’ll find what you’re looking for. So, when I saw the newest offering from Laura Geller, released to celebrate the brand’s 20th birthday, I had to get my hands on it!
When I heard it was called ‘Diamond Dust’ I had visions of a packed, glittery, shimmery highlighter, instead it’s a warm ivory shot through with a pink micro-glitter. I’m not going to lie, in the pan it looks a touch underwhelming. Laura Geller’s pans aren’t the glitziest on the market, but once you crack open the lid, the magic really happens!
That’s when you see a feint pink glow appear in sunshine. This isn’t an ordinary, everyday highlighter. Not even a little bit – this is more akin to fairy dust or a unicorn. Much like Laura Geller’s regular highlighters, the texture of this one is dreamy. It feels incredibly soft and almost creamy to touch. I like applying mine with a large fan brush for a soft, diffused look. It blends seamlessly into skin, and it absolutely comes to life when the light catches it!
Blended across cheekbones, brow bones and lids, it looks incredible. Violet, pink or silver depending on the light, this is a product absolutely made for special occasions! It feels almost space-age to wear, and I just adore how fun it feels!
