Poison Matte (962)

Dior Poison Matte (962) Rouge Blush ($44.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a bright plum with subtle, cool undertones and a matte finish. It had nearly opaque color payoff in a single layer with a smooth, lightly powdery texture that was dense but not firm or stiff to work with. It applied fairly evenly to bare skin and blended along the edges, though I noticed that it tended to look lighter and pinker when worn at sheerer coverage levels (less true-to-pan) so keep that in mind based on skin tone and what level of coverage you tend to wear your blush at. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading slightly.

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).

Although the flankers have adopted different colors, I really expected a purple. Most of this Dior blush collection has been vaguely disappointing, as so many dupes are better than the featured product.

The color itself is just gorgeous for autumn/winter, but that very matte finish could look too flat on me personally. I definitely prefer a more “skin finish” type matte or satin for my aging skin. The color, though!
