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!
