Dior has recently launched a mini collection “Dior Summer Mix” which consist of 4 pairs of nail polishes and cream blushes. The shades released looks very fun to be mix and match for summer. When a brand like Dior is releasing a new Limited Edition blush collection in a new formula, many beauty bloggers (including me :p) will go gaga over it! I picked up Capri out of the 4 shades as I love pink blushes more than corals 🙂
I don’t have many cream blushes in my stash. In fact, this is my 2nd tube of cream blush that I have. I personally prefer powder blush as I always use a setting powder after my foundation routine. But in times when I want to have a more popping blush shade, I like to use cream blush after my foundation, topped it with my setting powder and top it with a light powder blush. In this way, the blush will lasts longer.
Dior cream blush comes in a glass pot with CD logo on top of the cap. The packaging reminds me of Chanel Illusion d’Ombres. It’s quite heavy and it looks luxurious. When you open the blush cap, you can see the pop of color in the pot. It looks like a bubblegum macaroon to me. It screams “CUTE”!! 🙂
Diorblush cheek creme shades looks very striking in the pot, but you need to swatch it yourself to see that it is actually not as pigmented as what you see. In terms of texture, Diorblush cream feels a bit dry to me. It’s not too creamy and I find that this is suitable for ladies with oily skin. Ladies with oily skin need not to worry about their skin being more oily with Dior cream blush. I usually use two layers of this cream blush after my foundation. The first layer doesn’t look noticeable to me, so usually I will add another layer. This cream blush is very easy to blend, and you don’t need to worry that this blush looks too much on you. Just dab on lightly and add on more layer when you feel that it’s not enough.
As you can see in the swatch above, the swatches on the left side looks much more pigmented than the one on the right side. On the left side, I swatched on 3 layers while on the right side, I dabbed on a light two layers and I blend it together. Capri looks very pretty on the pan and when swatched.
Diorblush Cheek Creme is worth checking out! You shouldn’t be worried that this gives you too much color on your cheek or makes your skin oily 🙂
Thanks for reading.
