Skin79 Diamond Collection Star Glow Ball Powder Review and Swatches

More beauty abroad coming atcha today chicas.

I’ve been having a ton of fun sampling all the goodies that I got with my Skin79 Diamond Collection Set. This set is an incredible deal as it includes a slew of items for one low cost.

Although the sets aren’t sold in the US you can purchase individual items from E-bay and a few select online shops if you Google a bit and search around.

Today I’m reviewing the Skin79 Diamond Collection Star Glow Ball Powder.


Tale a peep after the jump!

This is much like my Esprique Precious Illuminate Nuancer which I simply adore however not as nice, tell you why in a few.


The “powder” is made up of several shades of pastel colored balls to be used to highlight certain areas of the face. It’s supposed to brighten the face up while highlighting however the formula is terribly frosty which is unflattering on my face.

The highlighter is housed in a cute, simple pink jar with a super soft puff included. Love the puff…it’s truly luxurious and super soft. The balls all range in shades from pastel pink, green, purple, etc…much like you’d find in a jar of Guerlain Meteorites. Where as Guerlain and Esprique is a subtle little highlight this is a rather frosty, shimmery affair that looks like a disco ball blew up in my face. Of course I adore sparkle and the likes but this was a bit overkill.


Not much else to say about it sadly other than the fact it was a sore disappointment and will end up on my swap list directly.

No likey.

Most of the Skin79 Diamond Collection has been a joy up until now but this one is a safe skip if you’re not wanting a frosty mess on your face. Pretty in the jar not on the face.

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    LUCKY I READ THIS. I LOVE BB CREAM SINCE I FOUND, I HARDLY EVER WEAR FOUNDATION ANYMORE AND I SAW THIS AND WAS VERY INTERESTED. ITS LACKS TO EXPLAIN ITS HIGH SPARKLE. i THOUGHT IT WOULD SIMPLY BE A CORRECTOR TO HELP WITH DISCOLORATION ON THE SKIN. DISAPPOINTED TO SAY THE LEAST.
