Rose Baiser (361)
Dior Rose Baiser (361) Rouge Blush ($44.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a pearly sheen. The consistency was soft, a smidgen powdery in the pan, but it was easy to apply and blend out for even, diffused color on my cheeks. It had excellent pigmentation that was easy to work with whether I wanted sheerer coverage (using a lighter hand) or intense coverage (using a moderate hand). The blush blended out well along the edges and yielded a natural sheen–skin-like but not actually shimmery–that stayed on nicely for eight and a half hours on me.

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).
