A baby doll pink blush that adjusts to your skin's chemistry? I'm in!
Dior Rosy Glow Healthy Glow Awakening blush promises to give you your own version of luminous flushed cheeks. The blush comes in a silver plastic packaging with Dior logo engraved. The back of the palette is translucent where the brush sits. A faux-velvet pouch is included to protect the palette while on the go.
The included short handle brush is wide and flat. The brush hair is very soft and does not scratch. It is rather small but will get the job done. I personally prefer a traditional blush brush better (Dior's own Backstage blush brush works really well).
The blush itself has Dior logo monogrammed on the surface. The color is true pink with a strong blue undertone. I detected a fairly light scent of roses that lingers for a minute or so after application. To achieve the perfect color-adjusting tone, I recommend you start off sparingly at first, use the lightest hand, fan the color out on the small area of your cheek, then wait a few minutes to let the color warm up and adjust. (While waiting, you can do the rest of your makeup to save time.) If you prefer a stronger intensity, you can layer on more but don't pack too much on right away or you will have clown cheeks! The result of careful application is nothing like an artificial barbie doll pink seen in the pan at all, on my skin, it turned a luminous, warm flushed color. It looked really natural and it lasted and lasted. The finish is a beautiful, silky matte with no shimmer.
On skin fairer than NC30, I think it will look even more flattering because the pink would really come through better. For people with rosacea or acnes/acne scars, I suggest you try this out in store first since it may emphasize the redness.
When I first saw this blush in store, the color in the pan scared me and the chalky texture swatched on hand didn't impress me either. But for some reason, I bought it, thinking to myself I'd try this on my cheeks at home (I try not to put any display products on my face since I'm acne-prone) to see if it would adjust to my skin better. And it did. And I'm glad I made my purchase.
The price is a little on the pricey side but if you are looking to splurge, give this Dior Rosy Glow blush a try. Nothing beats naturally-looking flushed cheeks. I think it is a limited edition but I'm not 100% sure.
