Dior Coral Sunset Diorskin Nude Tan Tie Dye Blush Review

diormain2Look at that beauty! I couldn’t help but had to have Dior Coral Sunset Diorskin Nude Tan Tie Dye Blush.  The Tie Dye design is just too mesmerising. Besides, I have been quietly admiring the silver Cannage casing so it was now or never kind of moment to purchase Dior Coral Sunset Diorskin Nude Tan Tie Dye Blush🙂 The blush came packed with a velvety pouch and a cute kabuki brush(more on this later) coral sunset coralsunsetback1 Dior Coral Sunset Diorskin Nude Tan Tie Dye Blush is a peachy orange blush with a satin and glowy finish.  The Tie Dye design is a mix of muted mauvey pink, orange, yellow with a white shimmer band that runs through the middle.  The individual bands are too small to be used as individual colours. You can definitely see shimmers in the design but this does not translate onto the skin.  And also it is worth noting that the Tie Dye design is not an overspray…I will be able to admire the gorgeous design for time to come…well let’s face it, it is the only reason why I bought the blush!

Here is a close-up taken indoor in natural light. diorsunsetcloseYou can see the shimmers in this photo which was taken indoors with the sun shining directly onto the blush. coralsunsetcloseagain

The product is densely packed and finely milled.  The texture of the blush is soft to the touch but does not have a buttery feel to it. I scared myself when I swatched the blush!  It was SO powdery!  However, I was relieved that no powder was kicked up when I used my Chikudodo cheek blush…Phew!  My Suqqu cheek blush was too soft and not dense enough to pick up anything.  And my heart screamed when I tempted to use the provided Kabuki brush!   So much powder was kicked up!  The Kabuki Brush managed to loosen up the powder…so much waste!  You can definitely use the Kabuki brush to apply and blend (albeit it is not almightily soft) if you don’t mind having some product wasted:) You can tell from the swatches below(taken indoors in natural lighting) that it was very powdery.  Thankfully, on the cheeks it applies beautifully without being powdery. diorcoralsunsetblushswatchDior Coral Sunset Diorskin Nude Tan Tie Dye Blush lasts over 8 hours on my oily skin and does not emphasise pores or texture.  I actually like how it looks 3-4 hours into the wear, once my oil naturally has sipped onto the surface of my skin.

Verdict:  Do I think Dior Coral Sunset Diorskin Nude Tan Tie Dye Blush is special? Yes it is in terms of the Tie Dye design and the silver casing.  But the blush formula and the finish are not overly special.  So it is not a must have unless you are a Dior collector.

It is a limited edition so if you are thinking of purchasing it, you can find it at various stockists such as Boots(where I got mine), Debenhams, John Lewis and Escentual.

Have you purchased any item from Dior Tie Dye collection?  Would you purchase a product purely on its design?

Thank you for reading. Sandyxo

    It’s beautifully designed and Dior is my favorite luxury line but… I wouldn’t purchase it unless the formula was something special. If it’s like a lot of other sheer corals, well, I have a lot already.

    i was THIS close to purchasing this because of its packaging… but it costs over 100 bucks in Singapore and that was the only thing that put me off. now that youve mentioned that the quality of the blush isn’t awesome, im glad i didnt purchase it. SO PRETTY TO MY EYE ON STILL!! x

      It is very pretty to my eyes too. But the quality could be a whole lot better for sure. Thanks for reading darling.xo

    Nice pics! This blush looks really nice. I wouldn’t buy a product just because of its packaging… it has to be really good too.xx

    This is STUNNING! Everything from the compact design, the tie-dyed pan, to the swatch / blending colour – all stellar! But yes, I agree, the formula of Dior blushers haven’t wow’d me, it’s more for collecting purposes! Great pics and review! 😀

    Such a beautiful blush!

    Oh my god this is so beautiful! It’s perfect for your skin tone! But yeah, too bad it’s “not overly special” as you said, we always think that high end products are great, but sometimes they’re not all that haha! great post xx

    Sad to hear about the quality. Dior is usually top shelf with the quality of their color cosmetics. Still, I just love the packaging and since I’m a huge fan of coral I think its a must for me.

    This is absolutely stunning! How you’ve even brought yourself to use it is beyond me – I’d just spend hours looking at it lol

  12. 11th June 2015 / 12:32 am

    Great post btw – maybe you could just admire it and ignore the quality aspect for now?? 🙂

    Oh my oh my this sure looks beautiful!! Pity about the finish 🙁 The colour and packaging and just gorgeous!
