Golden Frisson (310)

Dior Golden Nights (310) Rouge Blush ($44.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a soft, golden yellow with moderate, warm undertones and fine, golden pearl that gave it more of a satin sheen. The base seemed more “powdery” and matte-like in finish, so when I applied and blended out the powder, it seemed less shimmery than it was initially rather than becoming more luminous.

The texture was soft, somewhat powdery, and felt a little dusty–not as velvety as some of the other Rouge Diors I’ve tried–but it applied evenly and wasn’t difficult to diffuse and blend out. It had mostly opaque color payoff in a single layer, which built up to full coverage with less than a second layer on top. It wore well for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

Formula Overview

$44.00/0.23 oz. - $191.30 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).

Being a bit of a nitpicker, that occurred to me too. If you are given a product category in its name, you tend to think that’s the intended use. Butttt…actually you can use it as you wish. That’s why I liked the OG CP designation ‘super shock cheek.’ Place, but no limits. There are so many gradations between blush and hl. Plus, what’s one person’s blush is another’s hl. I personally do not like limiting descriptors.

My initial reaction was the same as Michelle Harrison’s – that this must be a highlighter rather than a blush. And Dior does so many better highlighters. But if they say “blush”, then blush it is but certainly not a blush shade for me.

Even though I do appreciate a more subtle highlighter at times (hello Laura Mercier 01!), this one reads far too subtle to my eye. I actually thought that I was going to love this shade, but I prefer the Rose Frisson blush much more.

Now I’m confused! This looks more like a highlighter/setting powder than a blush – although it does appear to have a strong yellowish undertone to it. I like the finish as well – quite semi mattish, which is what I like.
