I literally went bananas over the newish Dior blushes – the vibrant ones. I got asked to review/swatch them by a few people.
Let me just say, I think these have gotten a really bad rap for no reason. Yes, they swatch a little chalky. But no, they don’t apply chalky. The colors are pretty and smooth and I love the flush that it gives. My favorites are Mimi Bronze and Happy Cherry; though all the colors I own are great.
They go on sheer with a standard blush brush but can easily be built up. They wear well and blend out well. The brush it comes with is a soft angled brush that is easily usable. Though, it will apply the colors more on the sheer side.
I wanted the other 3 colors I’m missing, but the last color I got was My Rose. A pretty rose color, but this is REALLY sheer. I was afraid cocktail peach in particular would be the same so I haven’t picked up the remaining. I will consider it when Sephora does another sale, however. Lucky Pink also looked really pretty so why not?
My first one, this is a bright coral color. This goes on sheer, but can be built. No shimmer, but it’s more of a satin finish rather than matte. I love the peach glow this gives my cheeks and think this would look good on a variety of skin tones.
I pile this on! One of the first bronze blushes I’ve ever really loved. This one stays really warm and doesn’t pull pink when applied. It has a little bit of micro-shimmer but to me that doesn’t translate. This makes my skin look really glow-y. I’ve seen lots of people wear this color and I think this one is probably a favorite of the line. If you’re looking for a more brown blush, Mimi Bronze is where it’s at.
Another favorite of mine. This one has a slightly different sheen to it than just the satin finish, but it’s not sparkly. I love the glow this gives with a red base. A pretty color on fair and dark skins alike.
One of my least favorites, this one just isn’t pigmented enough for me. I often layer it or use it if I’m going for a really dramatic eye which is not often. If you like a light rose color, you will like this. Due to the pigmentation, I don’t think dark skinned gals or guys will get along with this.
This is in a different line, but such a pretty Dior blush! It’s supposed to adjust to your skin, but it’s just a bright pink. I think this is another that looks good on all skin tones. The pigmentation on this is excellent and most times I only add a dab to the apples of my cheeks. I like this to perk up a look when I’ve put on lots of bronzer. If you want to try a bright colored blush, I’d opt for rosy glow.
Such a pretty “Snow White” red. This seems just like a plain red, but really translates differently than any other red I’ve ever seen. It’s so pretty and I love that it’s a little sheer and can be built up. It’s more of a matte finish and gives less of a glow than happy cherry, so it just depends which color you prefer. I think both are gorgeous.
I have both highlighters – rose and amber diamonds. I prefer rose since I tend to wear colors like happy cherry & rosy glow most often. It gives a really pretty pink glow. Amber diamonds is most talked about and is really pretty in summer for me. I like wearing these as eyeshadows as well.
Hopefully this was helpful! I wanted you to see them all on since they aren’t chalky when applied. Such pretty colors and more of a satin finish.
