Midnight Wish

Dior Midnight Wish Rouge Blush (Shimmer) ($45.00 for 0.14 oz.) is a medium gold with warm, yellow undertones and a metallic sheen with faint sparkles. There seemed to be a slight rosiness to it as it looked a bit coppery at certain angles (when it wasn’t reflecting light as much). It had a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was denser and firmer in the pan, but it wasn’t stiff or thick, so it was still easy to pick up with a brush and blended out easily on my skin. It yielded a strong shine that was bordering on metallic, and it seemed to emphasize skin’s natural texture when worn at semi-opaque to opaque coverage levels. It stayed on nicely for nine hours on me before fading noticeably.

Hi ,
I enjoy your pics and reviews, I wish you’d give more of your opinions though . Is it too shiny , glittery or not . Would you wear it again ? I just get a better idea of what you thought of product, does it need to be so robotic? Maybe put a personal opinion section separately.

Hi Lisa,

You’ll want to check out another reviewer if you are looking for more subjective commentary because that really goes against how I approach the entire review process! My goal is to provide information about the product so that readers can make their own purchasing decisions based on their preferences, needs, budget, accessibility, etc. For me, it’s always about: “Does the product do what it’s supposed to? What does it do? How does it do those things?” I try to limit more subjective commentary to things like cohesiveness, versatility, who it might be best for, and so on.

I share my personal, favorite products in other areas of the blog (like in the navigation – “favorites” – along with my Editor’s Choice Awards each year) and I also mark products that I really enjoyed personally with “Temptalia Recommends.”

Christine can’t tell you if something is too shiny or glittery, only you can say that. I think what a lot of the rest of us really appreciate about her is that she doesn’t tell us how to feel about the makeup, she just tells us about the makeup.

Love this DIOR Highlighter and it looks fabulous on you as everything else always does. This is a very special product, one I think I’m going to splurge on. Thanks for the fabulous swatches

I really want to pick this up but I’m so confused. Is this a blush or a highlighter? On you cheek, there is a nice blush tone but not sure if it’s from this only or do you something else underneath?

Lovely shade, even if terribly common! After reading the part about it emphasizing texture, I sure am glad to have the same two dupes that show up for almost every gold highlighter.

Wow. The rosiness is gorgeous and unexpected. The dupe page showing just the swatches does no justice to how refined (and not just gold) it is, applied. That is no ordinary gold highlighter. Fantastic on you.

Seeing those scattered stars brought to mine the Bonne Etoile e/s palette from several years ago – still one of the BEST 5-pan palettes from Dior and one I just love to bits, especially at this time of year. But this highlighter is just too yellow/gold for my colouring (however, I did pick up the Dior Luminizer in Pink Glow yesterday and, honestly, another highlighter, no matter HOW gorgeous, really wasn’t something I actually needed but I just couldn’t help myself!

Hey Christine! Great review! Because we have the same type of skin (normal-to-dry), I really do value your opinions on products, especially ones that I’m looking into buying in the future. I am a MAC NC20, would you recommend this product to someone with my skin or lighter – or do you think it will look “dirty” and give us a shadowy effect like many darker highlights and blushes do? I do have some more questions about this gorgeous product especially on you and your personal preference. How is the finish on normal-to-dry skin? (I read that this is your skin type and it is mine too!) I usually find products similar to this one cling on my dry flakes. Also, have you tried the product with other foundation or bases? If yes, how well did it work with foundations other than ‘Born This Way’ by Too Faced? I also do not quite understand something. Are you wearing a highlighter or is that golden shine from the glow of the blush itself? I read you mention that it does have a rosier tone when blended out. It looks beautiful on you either way! I really enjoy your blog and love the way you describe products – these are just the things I, personally, would want to know that may not apply to other people. Thank you!

I don’t know that I’m very familiar with this color looking “dirt”y so I might not see an effect that way – does that make sense? Like this gives my skin color, not just glow, and I’m about NC20/NC25 so it’s not strictly a highlighter! On my skin tone, it’s more of a highlighting blush, but I definitely didn’t see it as “dirty” on me, though. As I mentioned in the review, it emphasized my skin’s natural texture at higher coverage levels, but I do not have any dry flakes on my skin (anywhere) at this time, so I don’t know about that personally. I don’t usually get too flaky (these days, my eye lids are most prone to that, which is… not fun).

I am not wearing any foundation underneath the product, and I didn’t test it over foundation, just over bare skin, which is how I test cheek colors (foundation could interfere with longevity, positively or negatively!). I take the foundation all around my face and diffuse/sheer out the edge toward my cheek area where I’m going to apply the cheek product! I am only wearing this product on my cheeks for the photos, which is also standard for my photos – you may see another color on the *other* cheek but when I am reviewing a single shade of highlighter/bronzer/blush/etc., it is only that shade applied to the cheek that’s tilted/angled toward you. Hope that clarifies! 🙂

The year of the gold highlighter (and eyeshadow!). We’ve got your golds, your other golds, your extra golds, with some golds thrown in just for variety. I’m sure this happens every year, and there are rightfully some people who are over-the-moon about the choices, but me personally … I think I’m over-the-holiday already.

I was surprised they just had the one! They have two eyeshadow palettes – one warmer, one cooler – so why not a platinum highlighter or icy pink to go with the cooler quint (Moonlight)?
