Mary, Mary, Quite Contrary – How Does Your Garden Glow?

Hey, lovely reader! Come join me on another trip to Dior’s Glowing Gardens.. You might remember that we visited back in January with Glowing Pink, but this time, we’ll be in the Nude!

That’s right, I’m talking about the other highlighter released as part of Dior’s Spring 2016 collection, called Glowing Nude.

 

Ever since we talked about her pinker sister, I’ve been itching to add this shade to my collection as well. After searching everywhere, then speaking with a Dior rep last week (who confirmed that this highlighter is indeed sold out everywhere), I happened to find one thanks to a happy mistake!

 

My local Sephora had this treasure stocked in the wrong place, and when I discovered it while looking for a bronzer, I wanted to cry gilded tears of happiness to show my appreciation.

Someone actually spotted me clutching it to my chest like it was my first born, and I thought for a split second I was going to have to fight over it. I may be tiny, but I’m sure I could throw a couple elbows to defend an illuminator like this!

 

Do you see that mirror-like shine? The velvety texture? The iridescent, golden hue?

 

If I were a rich girl (na-na-na-na-na-na-na, a la Gwen Stefani), I’d buy every eBay-hawked backup of this that money could buy. These highlighters are THAT good!

They don’t just make your face (or décolleté) appear to be lit-from-within, they actually make your skin itself look more youthful, supple, hydrated, and healthy. And ideal skin tone range? Literally errybody!

 

My only advice if you have purchased one of these, or plan on emptying your savings to some soulless scalper to get ahold of one, is to use it sparingly. These are going to be hard to hunt down, my friends, and they are worth their weight in gold.
