Today’s post features what are the most visually stunning pieces of the Dior Tie Dye Summer 2015 Collection–the Diorskin Nude Tan Tie Dye Edition Blush in Pink Sunrise* and Coral Sunset*. These are definitely collector-worthy powders, but that’s not going to stop me from sharing how they actually perform.
Diorskin Nude Tan Tie Dye Edition Blushes comes in a weighty silver compact with a mirror on the lid and the blush on the base. There are actually different designs on each of the compacts, and because one said Dior and the other didn’t, I thought it might be a mistake in my sample but it’s not. They also come with a velvet pouch to store the compact in as well as a small white kabuki brush. The brush is definitely useable although I don’t actually like using it with the blushes it comes with because I find it creates too much excess powder.
Both the Diorskin Nude Tan Tie Dye Edition Blush in Pink Sunrise and Coral Sunset have a tie-dye design that mixes three summer shades together, as well as a strip of white and the word NUDE embossed on them. There’s also an incredibly faint floral scent to the blushes. When applied the four shades swirl together to create a shimmery glow. Although the design could blend together slightly overtime, that has not been an issue so far, and it is definitely four different shades and not an overspray.
Diorskin Nude Tan Tie Dye Edition Blush in Pink Sunrise combines a pinks, white, and mauve for a pale shimmery pink. This is the lighter shade of the two, and although slightly buildable, it is intended for pale complexions. Applied, Diorskin Nude Tan Tie Dye Edition Blush in Pink Sunrise offers a pink glow to the skin that looks natural and is impossible to overdo. This is the perfect summer blush for pale skin, but it would be very subtle on medium skin tones or darker. I found both shades had excellent lasting power and were still visible 8 hours later. In comparison, the Diorskin Nude Tan Tie Dye Edition Blush in Coral Sunset is composed of bright oranges, pink and white and it is intended for tanned complexions. Blended together the shade is a warm and shimmery peachy orange.
In the above photo I’m wearing the Dior Nude BB Creme in 025, so my skin looks more tanned than it really is, and I love the combination with the Diorskin Nude Tan Tie Dye Edition Blush in Coral Sunset (I’m also wearing Dior Addict Lipstick Tie Dye Lipstick in Nude Ever). It’s such a warm, summery, sunkissed glow. In addition to wearing these shades as blushes, you can use these shades all over the face on areas that catch sun, like your nose and top of forehead, and I can especially see that working well with Coral Sunset to help brighten up your face.
