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.
