Coming Up Roses with Dior Rosy Glow Healthy Awakening Blush

in Blush, Dior, Spring

I was really stoked about the Dior Garden Party Spring 2012 collection mainly due to the new Rosy Glow Awakening Blush in #001 Petal. I was most intrigued by Dior’s claim that the blush has the ability to self-adjust with the moisture of each person’s skin to create a customised blush shade.

ROSY GLOW reacts with the moisture in each skin type, giving a delicious and subtle blush to the cheeks. When applied, the initially fresh, light color develops into a rosy blush to suit each individual complexion, for an ultra-natural, tailor-made healthy glow that lasts all day. ~ description by Dior

The blush is housed in a silver lucite compact that feels quite solid although it is not metal. It also comes with a little brush but I would have preferred if the entire pan was the blush itself because these little brushes do nothing for me.

In the pan, the Rosy Glow #001 Petal blush appears as a bright, bubblegum pink with slightly cool undertones. The consistency is quite soft and I find that my brush picks up the product quite easily. It is rather pigmented and I tend to apply with a light hand as it is supposed to adjust to a slightly deeper colour on my skin. The texture of the powder blush is finely milled and very smooth. It has a very light rose fragrance but is undetectable when applied.

I don’t think swatches for this type of blush will help immensely as it will look different on various skin types and colours. On the back of my hand, it appears as a bright candy pink however it transforms into a moderately warmer pink with a hint of peach undertones when applied onto my face.

The Dior Rosy Glow #001 Petal is undoubtedly a really pretty Spring blush. The technology behind the blush is what makes it interesting and a worth while purchase. I also like the embossed Dior logo throughout the entire pan, the design is elegant and intricate without going overboard.

If you are looking for an in-season blush to get, I’d recommend taking a look at the Rosy Glow Awakening Blush in #001 Petal. Each compact retails at RM150. I purchased this in January and it was already sold out in most places but the blush is permanent so if you missed out getting it back then, you can probably wait when they are restocked.

Have you picked up Rosy Glow for yourself and have you tried any self-adjusting cosmetics before? Do share your experience or just let me know if any of these chameleon-like makeup actually works.

Thanks, Xin! Was just testing out the lashes, one of those half types. No occasion, actually did housework and made dinner. Yeah, because I’m classy like that ;-)

Thanks, Bee! Sorry for being #evurl but it’s a really pretty blush ;-) I was using MAC’s Stars & Rockets and Da Bling (the glimmery middle bit). Was testing out a pink and purple look that day.

I absolutely love this! And it looks great on you too =) On me, it is a slightly more pigmented hue of pink, leaning rosy. I’ve tried the Smashbox O-Glow before. Dior trumps, hands down =)

Dior wins it for me too, although I don’t have Smashbox to compare. I think depending on how much you apply, it will look slightly deeper as well. I was being careful because my cheeks are naturally pink and I can’t use too much because it may end up being ruddy instead.

This ones looks GOOD. And the falsies look amazing :) I was gonna ask if you’ve tried cheaper self-adjusting brands before, because while I would love to splurge, lately I’ve just been using what I have – gotta live up to the minimalistic-ness.

Thanks, dom! I’m afraid I’ve never tried other self-adjusting blushes before but I’m sure they are out there somewhere. You don’t really need this when you already have what you’re happy with ;-)
