Do you need to fall in love with a $57 blush?

If you’re like me, probably not. But just in case you do, and you’re looking for a new blush with which to have a summer love affair, Dior 002 Coral Sunset is a heartbreaker. It’s all that and a bag of Trader Joe’s Cheddar Puffs.


What is Dior Diorskin Nude Tan Tie Dye Edition Blush Harmony in 002 Coral Sunset?

Like an actual tropical sunset, Coral Sunset has multiple shades. It’s a warm powder blush with four different colors in the same pan (orange, coral, rose and golden beige) that are designed to be mixed together and applied to cheeks. It’s one of two limited edition $57 Tie Dye Edition Blush Harmonies released with the Dior Tie Dye Summer 2015 Collection and comes with a blush pouch and a kabuki brush for application.

It adds a natural-looking orangey coral warmth to cheeks and skin, and the finish is key to the “natural-looking” part. It looks shimmery in the pan, but on the skin reads more like a matte-on-the-verge-of-a-sheen. If you look closely, though, you can see tiny flecks of glitter…but they’re small. No need to worry about any glitter bomb situations.

How do you use it?

Just take the kabuki brush that comes with the blush, swirl it in the pan, and then tap off the excess. Apply what remains to the apples of your cheeks.

There you go. 🙂

You can also lightly dust on parts of the face where the sun naturally falls for added warmth, like across the forehead and down the nose.

You don’t have to use the included kabuki brush, of course, and I think this one works pretty well, but I prefer to use a fluffy wide blush brush instead. Because this blush is quite pigmented, I find that it’s easier to blend and feather out the edges with a wider, fluffy face brush.

Is it worth the price?

So…this is crazy expensive for a blush. It’s $57! But if you can get over that hump (and it’s a BIG hump), you’ll find that it’s an absolutely beautiful blush.

It’s so pigmented that I only have to use one layer, and that single layer lasts six or seven hours between touchups. I’m betting that a pan of this could possibly last years, even with daily use, because you hardly have to use.

I also really love how it rests on the skin. It’s very finely milled, so the grains of powder don’t attract attention, and the application is perfection. A quick sweep of my wide blush brush, a bit of blending action at the edges, and I’m properly blushed in less than a minute, literally.

In trying to think of comparable high-end blushes, the closest I can come up with is Chanel Malice. The two aren’t identical, as Dior’s has more of a rosy tone, which I think makes it every-so-slightly more flattering on bronzed skin with reddish undertones because the rose shades play off the red tones that typically come with a tan. I also think that the addition of that warm rosy shade is why this blush is something other than your standard issue coral.

Yes, it’s cray expensive, but it’s absolutely on point. Recommended for gals/guys who live for high-end makeup and want a warm-toned blush that goes great with a tan. Also recommended for mature skin.

    Oh it is so pretty! I should probably hit pan on a blush before I buy more. I bought the Dior My Lady 07 blush (it popped up at Nordstrom a month or two ago and sold out fast). I think it was $65 but the compact was hefty and the mini kabuki is pretty nice!

  2. Pavithra says:

    Ouch! That’s expensive, but pretty..and that brush looks like something I’d love too much to use 🙂

    I have tried extremely hard to resist my urge to buy these blushes. I have managed so far! But it’s beautiful!!

  4. Lulle says:

    Like Agata I’ve also been trying to resist this blush – and the $57 price tag helped! If it was a little bit cheaper, I would probably buy it, but at that price it would hurt my budget really bad…

  6. Yeah you can’t deny that it looks absolutely beautiful! But after hearing about the slight intensity issues I feel less heartbroken about not being able to afford it.

    Flat out gorgeous. I love how it looks on you. You skintone is pretty close to mine and I’m super duper tempted. It looks really sophisticated. I’ve got some Nordstrom notes I’ve been hoarding for a rainy “I need me a pick up day”….oh the temptation!

    • Karen says:

      Hi Cherie,

      Yes! It’s very sophisticated. I love how it adds color but it’s not in your face obvious, you know? I say take it for a spin next time you’re at Nordies, and if you’re still thinking about it in two weeks, go for it!

      • Cherie says:

        Took it for a spin and I loved it. I don’t wear coral shades often but it just brightened and warmed my face at the same time. I gotta feeling I found a chic summer look. Ya, those Nordstrom notes were put to good use! 🙂

  8. Kim says:

    It’s like you’re sitting there with a checklist of all the things that could possibly make me love this blush and ticking them off as you go. HAHA! And I love Malice so much that I might actually be cray enough to spend that much on a blush. My wallet hopes not. 🙂

  9. astou says:

    I’m dying for that blush !!!
    That tie dye collection is just stunning !
    I’ve already bought 2 of their addict lipsticks (coral & nude) but Karen you’re making it hard for me to resist !!!
    You’re so gorgeous…
