Dior Independent (823) is a moderately cool-toned, medium-dark taupe with a satin finish. It is a limited edition blush that retails for $45.00 and contains 0.22 oz.
Dior Indpendent (823) Rouge Blush ($44.00 for 0.23 oz.) is a medium-dark taupe with neutral-to-warm undertones and a satin finish. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation with a drier, more powdery texture that had some excess that kicked up in the pan. I'd recommend tapping off excess to ensure precision during application.
I applied this more as a contour powder in order to avoid unnecessary comments about it looking "bruised," due to the way this type of hue interacts with my skin tone and undertone; the shadowy quality of the color certainly makes it usable as a contour shade for some skin tones and as a more barely-there neutral blush for deeper skin tones. The color went on evenly and blended out easily. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.
FURTHER READING: Formula Overview, which is a detailed review of the range as a whole.
Dior has reinvented Rouge Blush, the blush that enhances the cheeks with a long-wearing, healthy glow effect. Its intense couture color is available in 4 finishes: matte, satin, shimmer, and holographic. The blush's formula is composed with 90%* natural-origin ingredients and infused with floral skincare ingredients. It maintains skin hydration and ensures comfort all day long. Its soft, lightweight texture is particularly silky and offers a second-skin feel. The range of Rouge Blush shades is inspired by the iconic Rouge Dior lipstick range — a spectrum of hues from pink to red with variations of coral, beige, and plum that illuminate the skin with a natural glow. The blush's shade intensity is buildable to suit your desires for a natural or more pigmented finish.
