Presenting The New Dior Blush: 756 Rose Cherie

Dior recently launched its new blush line together with its Fall collection. If I’m not mistaken, there are about 20 new shades (more or less), categorized in different colour families. You get reds, pinks, oranges, nudes, all in different hues and nuances and even different finishes. Today, I will show you 756 Rose Cherie.

The Dior Blush comes with a flat angled brush which does the job when you’re on the pinch. It is soft and not scratchy at all, but you might get a hair or two stuck on you face after application. Rose Cherie is a sweet coral pink with micro shimmers. It’s very very pretty on the pan – girly and demure with a hint of playfulness peeking through the little shimmers and that hint of coral. When swatched, the shimmers are not very apparent. They look glowy against the complexion and distribute evenly across the cheeks. You don’t have to worry about chunks of glitter looking patchy or emphasizing pores. Dior knows how to make a good blush. I do notice that there are less shimmers as you work your way through the blush – meaning it gets less shimmery when you use it more – so it may or may not be a good thing, depending on your preference. I personally prefer my blushes not to have too much bling.

Rose Cherie is also a colour that appears sheer against my skin tone. I’d say there is a good balance of coral and pink in this blush, and it is great for beginners who might find it difficult to blend out your blush to make you look natural. This blush is mistake proof because of the light colour, but if you want more pigment, all you have to do is to layer it. The intensity can definitely be built, but I actually like it barely there. It gives my skin that additional life but when you see me, you’d wonder if I have makeup on or maybe I’m just that lucky bitch with good skin you’d like to slap. HAHAHAHAH! Here’s how it looks on me.

See that hint of pinky coral on my cheeks and perhaps that glow on my cheekbones? Do I have glowing skin? Is it because the light hit at the right spot when I took the photo? Is it the blush? Or wait, am I wearing any blush? See what I’m getting at?

I love what Dior has to offer in this range of blushes and I’m eyeing a few, one of them being red! I wish they’d cost less than RM150 a pan, but for that quality, I consider it money well spent. Compared to the Chanel palette I bought (you can read the rant here if you haven’t), Dior makes me and my money much happier.

Have you tried any of the new Dior Blush yet?

    • This is very pretty Helene. You really should try it. Also, glowing skin is really due to the blush and good lighting. LOL!

  • Haha! Love that barely there blush! Very glowy and natural look. My fave kind of look!

    • I love bold blushes, but barely there blushes are soooo easy to wear – flattering too!

  • this gorgeous shade but probably too light for my olive skin tone

    • Hey Parita, I’m certain they have bolder shades for your skin tone. You gotta check them out and report back. Haha!

    • Hehehe, glad you found that funny. What if I really meant it? HAHAHAHAHAH!!

  • The rose shades would be my favorite, too. Would love to try the new brush!

    • You’re more interested to try the brush and not the blush? Hahahahaha, Emma!!

  • Hey Lily, what a pretty shade! I love how it looks on you! I haven’t really checked the line-up out yet, but I’ll hopefully get to it soon 🙂

    • Oooo, I’d love to know what you think about them, Sunny!

  • What a pretty shade. It blends beautifully with the skin, leaving only a weightless veil of pure vibrant color. I would definitely give it a try.

    • I hope you do, Emily 🙂

  • Liz

    Yup, slap coming right up! Hahaha, j/k. I <3 you too much.

    I still haven't seen these – not sure if because they haven't landed yet or because I haven't been paying attention. Will be scoping out the bolder shades more!

    • HAHAHAHA! I love you too, Liz bob!
      And yes, go check out Reddissimo and tell me what you think. I’m eyeing that one!

  • I love that barely there blush look! Really lovely! I want to check out the intense shades from this line, though, LOL.

    • Great choice, Larie. The bolder shades look absolutely divine. Can’t wait to hear your thoughts!

  • This looks like the PERFECT sweet blush! It looks great on you. I’d never want to slap you though 🙂 Have you tried NARS Douceur? It’s also one of those barely there but OMG looks fabulous blushes.

    • Yes, I have Douceur 🙂 I use it as a contour shade because it’s darker, but when I use a fluffy brush for a sheer tint, it’s wonderfully natural 🙂 And thanks for not wanting to slap me. Lol!
