The DiorBlush formula is supposed to be a pigmented and blendable powder blush. The texture, while blendable on the skin, was powdery and looked somewhat powdery/dry against my skin (normal at the moment). It had semi-sheer to semi-opaque, buildable coverage. There seemed to be the slightest bit of shimmer in the product, but it read as a traditional matte finish applied. On me, the blush started to fade after six and a half hours of wear.

Dior Rose Garden (451) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Rose Garden (451) Eyeshadow Palette
Dior Rose Garden (451) Eyeshadow Palette

Dior Rose Garden (451) Eyeshadow Palette ($63.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a new, limited edition palette for spring. The eyeshadow formula feels different than their standard, permanent eyeshadow formula but similar to the formula used in the limited edition holiday palettes–more in the vein of MAC Extra Dimension and NARS Dual Intensity–but I couldn’t find anything from Dior that indicated these are actually wet/dry, though for your perusal, I swatched them both dry (left) and damp (right), so this review only covers dry application. I think that the eyeshadows perform much better damp, though, or with primer, as they run crumbly and/or powdery, so they tended to look a little dry or uneven applied to the lid as-is.

Rose Garden #1 is a light, chartreuse green with warm, yellow undertones and a pearly sheen. It had mostly opaque color payoff with a soft but dusty consistency that tended to sheer out on the lid. It lasted for seven hours on me. Make Up For Ever I318 Linen Khaki (P, $21.00) is lighter, less shimmery (95% similar). Make Up For Ever D316 Crystalline Pinky Green (P, $21.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Acid Rain (LE, $19.00) is more shimmery (90% similar). Cle de Peau Champagne Supernova #4 (P) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Juxt (DC, $16.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Make Up For Ever I330 Linden Green (P, $21.00) is cooler, darker (90% similar). Aveda Lemongrass (LE, $14.00) is darker, more shimmery (85% similar). bareMinerals Wicked (P) is darker, more shimmery (85% similar). MAC Floridazzle (LE, $16.00) is more muted, darker, less shimmery (85% similar). Dior Peacock (434) Eyeshadow #5 (LE) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar). Dior Peacock (434) Eyeshadow #1 (LE) is darker (80% similar). MAC Green Clean #2 (LE) is brighter, darker, more shimmery (80% similar). Tarina Tarantino Secret Pond (LE) is darker (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Rose Garden #2 is a light-medium, sunny yellow with strong, warm undertones and a frosted finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation with a lightly dusty texture that applied decently but could have used help from a primer to maintain intensity and evenness. This shade started to fade after six and a half hours of wear. theBalm #12 (P, $6.50) is darker (90% similar). Hello Kitty Mimmy (LE) is lighter, more shimmery (85% similar). MAC Lemon Tart (P, $16.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). MAC Double Feature #1 #1 (LE, $16.00) is brighter, darker (85% similar). Make Up For Ever S404 Straw Yellow (P, $21.00) is darker, less shimmery (85% similar). theBalm Snobby (P, $16.00) is lighter (85% similar). Fyrinnae Banana Mochi (P, $6.75) is brighter, darker (80% similar). MAC Bright Sunshine (DC, $16.00) is brighter, darker, less shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Rose Garden #3 is a light-medium, icy pink with cool undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-opaque color coverage dry, which was also on the dusty side with a tendency to sheer out when applied. The color wore well for seven hours on me. Make Up For Ever I872 Pearly Pink (P, $21.00) is less shimmery (95% similar). Too Faced Sugar Coated (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Chanel Tisse Rhapsodie #2 (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). Urban Decay Lily (LE, $19.00) is darker (95% similar). Too Faced Pink Pearl (LE, $16.00) is darker (95% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Lilac Dream #1 (P) is warmer (90% similar). MAC Ready to Party (P, $20.00) is warmer (90% similar). Tom Ford Beauty Seductive Rose #1 (P) is warmer, darker (90% similar). MAC Young Venus (LE, $20.00) is darker (90% similar). Milani Bella Pink (13) (P, $4.49) is darker (85% similar). MAC Feminine Wiles (LE, $20.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). MAC Joy & Laughter #1 (P, $21.00) is darker (85% similar). MAC Harpooned Heart (LE, $16.00) is warmer (85% similar). MAC Violet Blend #1 (LE) is warmer, darker (85% similar). Smashbox Celestial (LE) is darker, less shimmery (80% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Rose Garden #4 is a light, muted beige with warm undertones and a satiny sheen. It had decent pigmentation and wasn’t too dusty or too firm. The color lasted for six and a half hours on me. MAC Smokeluxe #1 (P) is more shimmery (95% similar). IT Cosmetics Transforming Pearl (P) is cooler (95% similar). MAC Pretty (LE, $16.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Tarte Chantilly Lace (LE) is less shimmery (95% similar). YSL Saharienne #1 (P) is warmer (90% similar). Sephora Desert Rose (P, $10.00) is warmer (90% similar). Make Up For Ever S522 Pinky Nude (P, $21.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Colour Pop Puppy Love (P, $5.00) is less shimmery (90% similar). NARS Topless (LE, $29.00) is cooler, lighter (85% similar). Urban Decay 5050 (LE, $19.00) is warmer, darker (85% similar). See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

Rose Garden #5 is a slightly muted, dark purple-taupe with cooler undertones and a soft, frosted finish. It appeared a little browner and less purple when applied dry, and it appears warmer as it is blended out. The texture was soft, lightly dusty, but blendable and still applied smoothly, even if not opaque or particularly buildable. The color started to fade after seven hours of wear. MAC Ebony Blend #3 (LE) is lighter (95% similar). Milani Bella Taupe (05) (P, $4.49) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). Make Up For Ever S556 Taupe Gray (P, $21.00) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Laura Mercier Twilight (LE, $28.00) is more shimmery (90% similar).

Dior Glowing Nude Diorskin Nude Air Illuminating Powder ($58.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a light-medium gold with warm, peach-brown tones and a luminous, slightly frosted sheen. Urban Decay Angel (LE, $26.00) is more shimmery (95% similar). Makeup Geek Nightlight (LE, $20.00) is lighter, more shimmery (95% similar). LORAC Twilight (P, $22.00) is lighter (95% similar). Becca Opal (P, $38.00) is darker (95% similar). Burberry No. 02 Nude Gold (LE, $68.00) is cooler (90% similar). theBalm Mary-Lou Manizer (P, $24.00) is lighter (90% similar). NARS Frenzy (Left) (P) is warmer, lighter (95% similar). Sephora Jubilant (21) (P, $14.00) is darker, less shimmery (90% similar). MAC Whisper of Gilt (LE, $30.00) is darker (90% similar). MAC Bare End (LE) is lighter, less shimmery (90% similar). Cover FX Moonlight (P, $38.00) is cooler, lighter (90% similar). Illamasqua Rush (P) is brighter (90% similar).

Anastasia Bubbly (LE) is warmer (95% similar). Colour Pop Wisp (P, $8.00) is darker (90% similar). Top 20 dupes listed, see the rest. See comparison swatches / view dupes side-by-side.

As I mentioned, the formula is comparable to products like NARS Dual Intensity, MAC Extra Dimension, Estee Lauder Gelee, and so forth. The powder has a smooth, blendable consistency that isn’t too firm or too soft, and it has a “dryness” to it that I feel but doesn’t appear on the skin (it’s not powdery or caky on). The amount and size of shimmer is just shy of emphasizing pores on me, but it may emphasize pores on someone who feels like they have larger pores–it is a more metallic one–though it can always be applied with a fan brush for less impact. The color lasted for eight hours before fading on me.

This has a similar formula to products like NARS Dual Intensity, MAC Extra Dimension, Estee Lauder Gelee, and so forth. The texture was smooth, finely-milled, and very blendable without being too soft or too firm. The texture feels a little dry, but it doesn’t look dry or powdery on the skin. It doesn’t emphasize pores on my skin, though if you apply more heavily and feel like you have larger pores, then there’s enough shimmer in it that it could be a possibility. I liked that while it was very light, it didn’t have a really strong, white powdery base, so it didn’t look chalky on my skin tone (and sometimes these types of colors can), which makes it more versatile for a greater number of skin tones. I think that those with cooler undertones, the pink tone/tint in this may be more noticeable as well. The highlighter wore well for eight hours before fading on me. This product also came with a mini kabuki brush, which is okay, but I did personally prefer a less dense brush for application (as well as a softer one). This is one of the better highlighters Dior has released in the last few years.
