Dior Pink Glow (001) Nude Tan Paradise Duo
Dior Pink Glow (001) Nude Tan Paradise Duo

Dior Pink Glow (001) Nude Tan Paradise Duo ($56.00 for 0.33 oz.) is a split-pan powder that features a bronzer and blush, and each of those is split as well into a lighter and darker section. It comes with a small, domed brush (like a buffer brush) as well.

Pink Glow Bronzer is a light-medium, peach-orange with a mostly matte finish. It had good color payoff, was buildable, and the texture was incredibly soft and silky, so it was a cinch to apply and blend the bronzer on the skin. This shade wore well for eight full hours and was just starting to fade after nine. Guerlain Terra Ora is shimmery and browner. Too Faced Bronzed & Poreless is browner. Illamasqua Disobey is darker, browner, less orange. MAC Optical is less orange.

Pink Glow Blush is a subtly warm-toned, pink-coral with a subtle, satin finish. It had decent color payoff, but it wasn’t buildable to totally true-to-pan color (slightly shy of, so not terribly sheer but not opaque as it could be). It lasted eight hours well but had noticeable fading after nine hours of wear. NARS Boys Don’t Cry is bolder, brighter, and more orange. Guerlain Pink Punk is similar–perhaps a touch pinker that won’t be detectable if the two are applied and blended out. Burberry Blossom is a bit brighter. MAC Supercontinental is lighter. MAC Fleet Fast is darker. Tom Ford Flush is brighter. Tarte Blissful is somewhat brighter.

I don’t think owning both this and Dior Coral Glow is necessary. The bronzers differ the most between the two, while the blushes are more similar than not–the Coral Glow Blush is warmer and less pink (more orange) but on, it’s hard to differentiate between the two. Coral Glow’s Bronzer is yellower and darker, but applied, again, the differences can get lost if they aren’t applied heavily. The difference is going to be most visible on very fair skin and on cooler complexions, but light-medium and darker complexions will likely see less of those differences in practice.

A
If you prefer pinker corals, you may prefer this over Coral Glow. I think the two are similar enough that having both isn't necessary (and more of an indulgence--a nice-to-have), since they look rather similar once applied!

    So pretty! Which of the two would be better for someone with a light, olive skintone?

  2. Az sunshine

    I am somewhat disappointed that the two colors are so similar, but I guess my wallet isn’t. I’ll be passing on both since I have two of the dupes you listed. They sure do look beautiful though.

  3. t_zwiggy

    I prefer the bronzer side on this one and the coral on the other one!

  4. I wish both of these where not sooo orange! If this one was more gold or neutral I would have picked it up in a heart beat. >__<

  5. Nicoco Chanel

    I don’t own any of Dior’s NUDE bronzers, but I always question why I never get them. They’re beautiful all the damn time.

    My wallet thanks you so very much LOL! I got the Coral glow was wondering if I needed to get the pink as well I had a hard time choosing but than deciced on the coral and as I am a B30 Chanel I could wear both with makes it very hard choosing products but now I think I did right thing after reading your reviews. I am always happy that even although you receive the products you always are honest.thanks!

  7. Hmmm.. I still think I like Coral Glow a bit more. But both are nice!

  8. Love them. But definitely NOT paying $50+ for them. Will be buying the dupes. Thanks!

  9. I am shocked at the similarity. I like the bronzer shade in this compact much better though. The yellow in the bronzer from the coral compact was rather unattractive IMO.

    I’ll stick to my Guerlain bronzers but on a side note, i’m LoViNG your lip colour. Is that Flower as in Drew Barrymore’s line??? I’m curious to see that review (and the Guerlain Kohl review as well!).

  11. Deb

    Hi Christine. I’ve been trying to decide between the two of these and was waiting for a review of the pink, so thank you for this. I notice that you said the bronzer in the Coral is yellower and darker so I was wondering: would you say the bronzer in the Pink is more neutral? Or cooler in tone? Thanks.

  12. blueraccoon

    I think I like this one better than Coral Glow. I’ll have to see if my local Nordstrom’s has this. I’m still hunting for the Princess lipstick (I bought the Addict lipstick but apparently there’s also an Addict Extreme with the same name), so I can grab them together.

  13. Christine I am in love with both the blushes but I must admit the bronzer in the peach duo is a little intimidating, which would you recommend for a NW20 skin tone?

  14. Ms.Laura

    I really like this, but I already have a dupe for the bronze and the blush side. I just can’t justify buying something I know I already have (color wise). It’s so pretty though.

  15. Oh my god, with every post I’ve read about that I deffo need it! Looks like the perfect combination with bronzer and blush! Love it!

    xoxo,

    Anna

    I picked this up last week & absolutely love it. It’s far more pigmented than I expected it to be, it blends really smoothly & leaves a very nice sheen on the skin. Zero sparkle, no frostiness to the finish. It’s gorgeous. And the compact it comes in is beautiful. I’m surprised that I paid the same price in Canada as compared to the US retail price, for 9.5 grams of product. Yes, it’s more $$ wise when compared to an average MAC blush, but it’s also better quality & 3.5 grams more of product. You get over 50% more. Not to mention the fact that the packaging blows MAC’s out of the water. And it comes with a little Dior kabuki brush, with everything in its own little velvet pouch. The brush is actually not bad at all. Very soft, picks up a generous amount of blush/bronzer,and is small enough to make it possible to choose exactly which shades of the 4 you want to use. Well worth the money I spent. I love this one so much that I’m considering buying the other shade before it’s sold out.
