Diorblush Cherie Bow Edition

By Beautifulbuns

It’s been some time since I’ve used powder-anythings, whether it’s a powder two-way cake or a powder blusher. I guess I just prefer things wet and moist hurhurhur. But seriously, in our country where it’s so insufferably humid, any powder-based makeup item just baked into a cake of sebum and dirt in a matter of hours.

But sometimes, once in a while, a powder item comes along that you just can’t say no to. (Either that, or I’m just the biggest sucker for packaging).

Upon closer inspection, there’s actually 2 shades.

The shade on the left, which I will call shade 1, is actually the pink olour itself- Shade 2 is more sheer and has iridescent glimmer specks.

Shade 1: more colour intensity and less / no shimmer.

I say…

There’s just something about luxury brands and me being a sucker consumer that fits so well – I can never say no to a beautifully-packed premium item. Sigh. The cons of being a superficial and shallow woman who’s easily enticed by external appearances.

  • The packaging is so luxe – complete with a velvet carrying case and fingerprint-magnet casing, complete with a too-small brush and ample-sized mirror.
  • The brush is just too small for blusher brush – it serves better as a highlighter brush I feel.
  • This is even more inadequate when there are two colours to pick up.
  • That said, the colour is just so beautiful!
  • You can use them together by first using colour 1 (the colour-intense pink) and then layering on with colour 2 (the sheer pink with shimmers).
  • I prefer to just use the sheer one, cos I think I’m still young and fresh like Suzy.
  • Alternatively, I apply my usual Cheek sticks – Esprique or The Face Shop and then dust a light layer of colour 2 over.

If you’re still with the powder gang and need a replacement blusher, I’d say go for this. It’s really a happiness-bringing shade, albeit a tad pricey at US$43. And make sure you’ve got a decent blusher brush.
