This Spring, Dior creates its first blush that enhances your unique cheek colour for an ultra-natural and customized healthy glow effect. Below are information and application tips extracted from the leaflet found inside the box, together with the product.
INTRODUCING FRESH COLOUR REVEAL™ TECHNOLOGY TO UNVEIL ULTRA-NATURAL CUSTOMIZED COLOUR
ROSY GLOW features the new Fresh Colour Reveal™ technology which intuitively adjusts to the moisture of each skin to make the cheeks blush with delight. Upon application, ROSY GLOW reveals fresh and luminous colour that develops a rosy radiance to match each skin tone for an all-day ultra-natural, customized and healthy glow effect.
A UNIQUE SENSORIAL EXPERIENCE FOR THE SKIN
Its ultra-fine powder texture and its irresistible rose fragrance offer a moment of pure indulgence with each application.
According to the leaflet, you are supposed to sweep the brush over the powder a single time to take just the right amount of product then apply delicately to the top of cheekbones. The halo of colour gradually intensifies as if by magic, revealing an ultra-natural and customized rosy glow.
To accentuate the makeup result, sweep the powder over the cheekbones with the brush a second time for a more vibrant colour result.
When I saw the promotional pictures of this item, I am in love with the embossed “Dior” wordings and the delicate, soft pink hue. When I saw the blush in person, I was a little worried that it may look too pale and chalky on myself. But I soon learnt about the technology and was fasinated.A blush that adapts and changes colour according to one’s skin tone?
As you can see from the swatches above, the heavier swatch leans a little lilac, a pale cool-tone pink with a matte finish probably describes it best. It’s less chalky once blended out and seems to blend into the skin very smoothly.
I applied the blush as suggested in the leaflet and I really, really like how natural and glowy it looks. It looks as if the blush has a “soft focus” effect or something.
The picture on the left was taken almost immediately after I applied the blush. The picture on the right is taken about 20 minutes after application. Not a huge difference but I noticed the hue changed ever-so-slightly – became a little warmer and rosier.
I also enjoyed the rose scent I smell while applying this blush.
One more closer look at the details of the blush. Under direct sunlight, you can see that the blush is not totally matte, it has very tiny shimmer but not visible after application. DIOR ROSY GLOW comes in a sturdy, transparent plastic casing with a metal lid – similar to the Diorskin Nude Glow released last Summer.
The shade of DIOR ROSY GLOW is somewhat quite unique in my blush collection. The closest I found is Givenchy La Prisme Blush in It Girl Purple 24 (depending on the colour combination). Hope you enjoy the swatches and comparisons below.
Overall, a unique piece I love. From the soft and fine texture to the colour that self-adjusts. And I really like the natural glow this blush creates – it lasts all day too.
