Dior Peach Splendor Blush

Dior Peach Splendor Blush ($44.00 for 0.24 oz.) is a light, peachy-pink with a semi-matte finish. There are fine bits of sparkle strewn through the powder, but it appears primarily satin to matte on the skin. LORAC Unimaginable (LE) is pinker, darker, more shimmery. Surratt Beauty Duchesse (P, $32.00) is less shimmery. MAC New Romance (P, $27.00) is more shimmery, darker. Makeup Geek Honeymoon (P, $9.99) is slightly darker. MAC Perfect Topping (2014) (LE, $30.00) is more shimmery. Tarina Tarantino Feather (P, $25.00) is pinker, darker. bareMinerals The Many Splendors #2 (LE) is more shimmery. NARS Sex Appeal (P, $29.00) is less shimmery. MAC Amber Glow (LE, $27.00) is more shimmery. Benefit Sugarbomb (P, $28.00) is more shimmery. See comparison swatches / view dupes.

The texture of the blush feels soft to the touch and seems finely-milled, but there’s a dryness present that gives it a more powdery, visible look on the skin. If you have oilier skin, it may not be noticeable once applied, but drier skin types will definitely see the powder sit on the skin. It is barely visible on my skin tone (just lighter than a true medium) other than giving it a very subtle sheen (I can see the powdery finish in person better, though), so if you have a similar skin tone or are darker, I would highly recommend trying it in person. For fairer skin types, it would easily work as a foolproof, everyday kind of color. It had semi-sheer color payoff at most but tended to sheer out due to the drier texture–not the “maximum expression of pigments” or “Vibrant Color Powder Blush” (official product name) described. On my skin, which is normal-to-dry, it lasted for six and a half hours.

I’m not a peach blush person (it’s too warm and unnatural looking on me) but this LOOKS so pretty in the pan with that lovely logo embossed on it. Can you comment on the brush, Christine? I often wonder if the brushes/applicators are any good (the BM 8 pan palettes I have came with surprisingly decent brushes and I’ve come to learn that the applicators in the Chanel Tisse quads, which seem to be cotton flannel rather than sponge, work really well with those shadows – I mean SURPRISINGLY so and, in some ways, better than many of my brushes!)

I feel like Dior’s old blush formula (the one with the two different tones in the pan) was better than the new single colored blushes. I have a bunch of the old ones but none of the new ones. What do you think, Christine?

I wanted to give it a try but I think I am going to save my money this time thanks to you! Have you tried the color “Rose Corolle”? It really looks beautiful in the pan but I still havent had time to swatch it !

The most was semi-sheer, but it doesn’t stick well, so it’s hard to really build up the color without it immediately sheering right back out.

This looks like a beautiful everyday blush for lighter complexions! I really like how it gives your a subtle flush of color without looking flat

I love peachy-coloured blushes but I prefer a two tone blush/bronzer. This looks a little too pale even for me. Not that anyone wants to look like a clown, but it seems to lack pigmentation.

I can’t normally pull off peach blush, but this looks like something that would work-in the pan! Even on my <NC15 skin, this would be more of a highlight… That said, MUG Honeymoon may be worth a second look!

That design is so simple and elegant…Dior gets me every time with their fancy-pants embossing. And, I’m a close to perfect candidate for this blush as I’m very fair and love pale, peachy-pink shades. But, I’m getting spoiled by blushes that have both lovely colors and luxe textures that apply like silk. I’m sure I’m not alone, so, it’s going to be more and more difficult for prestige beauty houses to find success in putting out underperforming products. All that said, you manage to make virtually every single product you wear look amazing, including this blush. Thanks for the very honest review…there’s no doubt that a $44 blush needs to be impressive. And, not just the embossing 🙂

If you have blushes that feel like silk, definitely stay away from this one! It’s not the worst texture ever, but there are so many better ones out there – and once you’ve experienced them… well… there’s no going back!

I have the Cherry Glory Blush, which has a better pigmentation 😉 I love the color, it really compliments my skintone, like a “flush”, very natural – BUT it is chalky :/ and needs lots of blending. Lots of time and work, can’t wear it, if I’m in a rush in the morning. Beautiful, but more like a collectors item 🙂
