After much hesitation, early last month I decided to purchase Diors famous Rosy Glow.
Time and time again deterred by it’s cool, eye popping ‘pinkness’, I never seemed to have the courage to purchase it, let alone try it at the counter. Luckily for me, this time I went with backup! My friend Sarah, who I can always count on for an honest opinion..
So according to Dior, this is a blush that is said to adapt to one’s skin tone, making it wearable for most, if not all skin tones. Of course I was quick to scoff at how ridiculous that claim was; but is it really? 😉 I’d say this works as a translucent powder would, but in the form of a blush… (that got you thinking huh?)
At the Dior counter this blush is grouped together with several other popular Dior products such as the Dior Glow lip balm, they are termed backstage favourites; basically what is used on models of all ethnicities at the Dior fashion shows, and is specially developed to be universally flattering.
I had this tested in department store lighting and lo and behold it was anything but cool toned pink on my cheek! Sarah and I were shocked that it pulled more coral on me. (my favourite blush shade might I add 😉 ) So there you go! Claim proven and there was no way I could disregard what my/our eyes had witnessed. Just for you, I did prepare a heavy swatch on my forearm to get an idea of how this looks in the pan, but it is by no means a true reflection of how it’s like worn sparingly on ones cheek. That’s where the true magic begins!
Next time you are at the Dior counter, give this a go. I promise you, it’s worth your while. If the elegant silver packaging doesn’t tempt you, I bet the very flattering, gentle flush of your cheeks will 😉
Lasted over 7 hours, after which it shows slight fading, which I believe is very good wear time.
This blush comes with 7.5g of product for USD44
Made in France

Wow gorgeous blusher and your pics are always so beautiful!:) I love the Dior lip glow so I definitely need to swatch this next time I’m at the Dior counter.
Yeah! This is super flattering and just made for a rosy Spring cheek! I am yet to try the lip glow. Seen it here and there with rave reviews. Must drop by the counter sometime 🙂
That color looks really bright in the packaging, but oh so pretty on your skin ❤
