Hey there lovelies!
So I know the whole strobing, illuminating and highlighting trend remains extremely popular, and who wouldn’t do it? It looks absolutely fabulous when done right!
As you already know, I am huge on the drugstore brands and on getting the most out of your money. Also, you might have already caught the hint that I love going to Ulta. While at Ulta, I walked through the isle with the Ulta brand cosmetics and I actually found something that I really liked.
Introducing the Pink Diamond Illuminating Powder by Ulta!
The Ulta brand has two different shades of illuminator, the Pink Diamond and Yellow Diamond. I swatched them both at the store, and I actually liked the Pink Diamond one better, I just thought that it would be a little more natural.
What I love most about this illuminator is the texture. It is extremely smooth and silky and it goes on your skin nicely.
The original price of the illuminator is $10.00, but there is usually a sale for all Ulta brand products, which ends up being Buy one, Get One Free or even Buy Two, Get Two Free. I think that it’s definitely worth checking out. Plus, you don’t really have to buy it to see what it’s like and to see if it is worth purchasing, as you can go into the store and swatch it there (they usually have a tester).
The illuminator applies onto the skin very iridescent and shimmery, as all illuminators do. The color is a pinkish, gold iridescent color. When you really look at it, you can really see the pink undertones, as well as the gold.
Personally, I haven’t had a problem with it staying on, it usually lasts me all day. The only thing is that sometimes I kind of double up on the illuminator with my MAC Mineralize Blush in Just A Wisp, I mentioned it on one of my previous posts. Click here to see my MAC Obsession post!
Truthfully, this Ulta illuminator gives your skin a healthy, natural looking glow that can potentially last you all day! It’s $10 well spent, at least in my book! It’s a good and fair-priced everyday use item!
