Dior DiorBlush #553 Peechy Keen

Posted by Lipglossiping On October - 23 - 2010

I was on the lookout for a true peach blush but I couldn’t decide whether I wanted matte or shimmer…. I do love my shimmers but it’s mattes that consistently give me the best results on my skin.

I was walking round John Lewis a couple of weeks ago checking out all the peaches at ALL the counters (I don’t do brand discrimination when I’m on a hunt) and my eyes alighted on this little number:

I don’t actually own a Dior blush… so I wasn’t really sure what to expect.  I find Dior can sometimes be a little hit and miss in terms of texture and pigment but on my pale skin, a slightly less pigmented blush can work just as well if not better.

I took the plunge!

Check it out!  Matte on the left, shimmer on the right – you CAN have your cake and eat it too!

The shimmer side is very finely milled and adds a touch of glow to the long-lasting and overall matte appearance.  It’s a great combination for shimmer/matte fence-sitters like me!  The strange thing about this blush is that although it looks scarily peach in the pan (I did have a little wobble after buying it because of this)… it actually ends up looking pretty pinky/peach on my cheeks.  Which in fairness, is probably for the best.

(A terrible patchy swatch, I’m sorry… it looks quite ruddy here.  I’ll do a FOTD when bruises have gone)

I only need to pull my brush across the surface once to pick up enough product and I do notice a little bit of excess powder lift on the pan (what’s the term for that? – when you have to blow on the pan after to get rid of the excess powder?) but it applies smoothly and blends nicely.  I really don’t have any complaints about this blush at all.  Apart from perhaps the price… but I didn’t go to the Dior counter expecting to get a Sleek bargain now did I?

I paid £27.50 for this and am truly delighted to have done so… more DiorBlush! More!

Available online and on counter, do you ladies have any other shades that you’d recommend a hopeless addict?

    I’m not sure if you like mineral makeup, but this brand is pretty good. http://host.silknaturals.com/creb/

    I’ve used their blushers, eye shadows, foundation, lip glosses, lip sticks (pretty much everything!) and they’re all pretty good. They have a wide range of blushers, peachy ones too, and they’re not too strong so you can build up the peach on your cheeks if you want. They also do a few dupes for the popular colours like NARS Orgasm etc. I don’t own Orgasm so I can’t tell how close it is, but I really do love the range that they have. Maybe you can take a look and see if you like any of their peach blushes.

    Oooh I love the look of this, I too have been after a peach blush and it looks like you have done all of the hard work and chose it for me! is the powder thing called ‘fallout’? FABULOUS blog by the way 🙂

  3. Wowzers – this looks amazing! Adding to my wish list. I have a lovely Shu Uemura peach blush that is matte but not flat looking when applied the cheeks. It would be helpful if I knew the # or name but alas I don’t!

    I love love love peach blush, and my favourites are:
    – Urban Decay Score – slightly shimmery, goldy peachy pink but not excessively so. this is what I wanted Orgasm to be…
    – Shu Uemura P44 – lovely but quite pale and can look a little flat – I find it needs a smudge of bronzer or highlighter to give it some depth
    – Mac – Ripe Peach blush ombre – love it…can custom blend the 2 sides for a new colour every time…
    – Mac – Cheek. love this colour, a light matte peachy pink that is just gorgeous. I think it’s discontinued though….
    – Mac – Fun’n’Games – from Hello Kitty, a lovely mid toned matte peach
    – Nars Lustre – a strange colour that looks shimmery and gold, but is actually a fantastic peach that just makes you glow
