Dior Tie Dye Edition Blush: Pink Sunrise

 

When it comes to limited edition luxury brand collections, I tend to go for one or two items tops. In this case, I was drawn in by the stunning design of the Dior Tie Dye Edition Blush in Pink Sunrise. Of its Tie Dye Edition Collection released for Summer 2015, Dior says “luminous, flamboyant, inspiring colours swirl together under the sun to create a bright Tie Dye effect that holds the promise of beauty at its height”.

The harmony blushes are offered in two shades. Dior recommends Coral Sunrise, “a blend of orangey and effervescent coral hues…to sculpt tanned skin tones” and Pink Sunrise, “a gradation of soft pinks and pearly mauve…to brighten light complexion“. As I’m light to medium, I went with Pink Sunrise.

Housed in the signature Dior silver Cannage case, which feels luxurious in the palm of the hand and is accompanied by the signature velvet pouch and white Kabuki brush, the uniquely patterned blush really is a stunner. How could I resist?

I’d heard the Tie Dye blushes do not swatch well and this was, indeed, my experience. Using a finger, the product can come off quite powdery. Perhaps this is why Dior insists that the blush is best applied with the enclosed kabuki brush which helps to both concentrate and diffuse the pigment onto the cheek. I’ve used Pink Sunrise with said Kabuki as well as my regular blush brushes and found that it definitely applies with more pigment on the cheeks. Mixed together the hues of Pink Sunrise create a soft, warm pink characterised by a subtle shimmer that naturally illuminates. Lasting powder, though not amazing, is decent at about 7+ hours.

Dior says that harmony blushes can also be used on the top of the forehead, nose and cheeks – areas of the face naturally warmed by the sun. Despite being very warm toned, personally, I think Pink Sunrise maybe too pink for these areas – unless applied with a very light hand. In which case, you won’t see much of the color anyway.

At the end of the day, the Dior Tie Dye Edition Blush is definitely a luxury splurge – and the shade is likely dupe-able. However, if you’re in the market, I think it’s a beautifully designed blush that gives healthy flush of colour and I can’t help but love it.

 

The Tie Dye Edition blushes retail for $57.00 USD or £40.00 and can be found at retailers such as Neiman Marcus and Harrods.

  1. You’ve seriously got the most gorgeous, lust worthy products on your blog and this is no exception. It looks so beautiful and the shade swatches is perfect. It’s great that the Kabuki brush was included x

    1. Aww, thank you, sweetie. I don’t know if that’s a good thing (I have great taste? Lol) or a bad thing (I spend way too much $ on beauty products). Either way, thank you again for the lovely comment. And I really do like the Kabuki that’s included, it works very well. 🙂 xo

  2. Ohh, this blush has luxury stamped all over it but I can’t bring myself to spend that much money on 1 makeup item. Definitely have to find a good dupe for this. xx

    1. I get where you’re coming from. You know…it does remind me a little of Physcians Formula Happy Booster Blush in Pink. Do you have access to that brand?

  3. I am in love with this product! It looks so perfect for spring. It also looks like it would suite so many different skin shades.

    1. I’m in love with it too, Connie! I think it would probably work for anyone to a medium. Definitely perfect for Spring (and Summer) as you say. Thanks for stopping by. 🙂

  4. This looks beautiful. But I wonder whether the colour would be the same when it gets worn down. I always leave a dip in the middle and use the edges last! x

    1. That’s a great question Ting! It’s definitely not an overspray, but I can’t say I know how deep the layers run – though I’m guessing all the way through? I guess I’ll know more in a few months. 🙂 xo

  5. I cannot get over how gorgeous the colour of this blush is. So pretty! I need it in my make-up collection!! X

    1. I definitely recommend it, Demi-Lee. It’s gorgeous. 🙂

  6. This looks simply stunning!! Love the packaging and the colour swatches beautifully. My kinda pink! I agree with you, though. Doesn’t look like the type of shade I’d wear on my forehead, etc. Not warm / bronze enough in my opinion. But gorgeous nonetheless. Damn it. Now I’m super tempted. haha x

    1. I know, right? It seems as a strange shade to place on your forehead. 🙂 And I feel you…we are surrounded by temptation, haha. Let me know on which side of the fence you end up. xo

  7. OMG this is gorgeous! I seriously need this in my life 😀

    1. I’ve worn it everyday this week. Loving it. A luxury splurge for sure. xo

  8. Oh my.. I think my heart skipped a beat there. The tie dye effect is gorgeous. I’d hate to use it and spoil the pretty pattern though. (yep, that sad!) x
