Dolce Vita (555)

Dior Dolce Vita (555) Rouge Blush ($44.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a deep, reddened plum with soft, warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had nearly opaque color coverage in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with less than half of a layer on top. I was able to apply less product using a lighter hand and build up that way as well. I would recommend using a moderately dense blush brush with this, as the powder had a smoother, denser, and slightly creamy consistency to it that didn’t play as well with more feathery/ultra soft brushes. It applied fairly evenly to my cheeks and blended out nicely, while the satin sheen sat well on my skin–natural but not overtly shimmery. The blush started to fade noticeably after nine hours of wear.

Formula Overview

$46.00/0.23 oz. - $200.00 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "intense, ultra-pigmented color that lasts," though under "formula," the brand states that it has "bold, yet buildable color." Most of the shades I tried were quite pigmented, but the denser, smoother consistency of the powder made it possible to apply less for more buildable coverage as they weren't too powdery nor too stiff in the pan to work with. They applied easily, blended out well, and stayed on for eight to nine hours on me. The powders did have a floral scent to them, though I did not notice the scent when applied to my skin (more in the compact).

My goodness Christine, what a gorgeous color for Fall! From your description it seems like it’s highly pigmented but still blendable. Do you think it’s blendable enough for a sheer, stain-like effect?

Beautiful blush! I see it is dark skin friendly. How does the formula compare to the MAC Extra Dimension Blushes like Pleasure Model and Fiery Impact?

What a gorgeous shade! I have two dupes listed otherwise I’d rush to the store to get this!

A little further into Fall, I like to layer Tom Ford blushes Ravish over Savage. Gorgeous!
