Dior Rosy Glow Blush

Dior Rosy Glow Blushes

Dior Beauty seems to be reformulating all of their products and the latest I’ve tried is the new Rosy Glow Blush ($40 each). Now available in six shades: Pink, Coral, Rosewood, Cherry, Berry and Mahogany. There are lots of mixed reviews on the new formula. After testing all the colors here are my thoughts. I also swatched the coordinating Addict Lip Maximizers to go with each blush shade. I know the Lip Oils are the more popular lip option from Dior these days but I really prefer the Lip Maximizers for the texture and colors.

I think the new formula performs just as well as the original for most of the colors. Color-wise the Original 001 Pink pulled a deeper more pigmented pink on my skin while the new 001 Pink pulls more true to pan and has a lighter baby pink finish. I think they are both really pretty on the skin. I like to use the pink on top of other blushes to add a pop of color.

Texture and finish depends on the color. I really love the colors Coral and Rosewood. The pigment is easy to control as these blend easily and layer nicely for more color. Coral makes for a really nice peachy summer color and Rosewood is your perfect year-round neutral.

I found the deeper bold shades to be really intimidating in the pan and initially thought Cherry, Berry and Mahogany were shades I would never wear. I didn’t buy them at first, but in the effort to try something new and different, and to give you a thorough review of the formula, I decided to order them anyways!

Cherry was a nice surprise with a red flush. Application is smooth and easy to blend out.

Berry has an intense color very contrasted with my skin but blended out ok. I wouldn’t call the application seamless – it did take some work to blend but it’s workable.

Mahogany was a streaky patchy mess and took a lot of blending to try to even out. Even after blending it still looked very uneven on my skin. I tried it as an eyeshadow and there is something about the undertone that doesn’t sit right with my olive skin.

Overall really happy with Pink, Coral and Rosewood. There are lots of beautiful powder blush formulas that launched this season and I think there is something for everyone.

That wraps up my Dior Rosy Glow Blush review! I think they’re beautiful. I don’t know that I would call them must-haves but they perform well, quality is there and I think the bold colors are fun for a more colorful look. The formula is really nice, but color-wise I feel like I’m more drawn to the Gucci or Armani powder blushes this season.

Have you tried the new blush launches this season? What formula is your favorite? Or are you reaching for colors in your current stash?


I bought my Dior blushes from Sephora. Also available at Ulta Beauty and Dior.

Dior Addict Lip Maximizers – New Formula + Colors

January 31, 2023

Dior Addict Lip Maximizers new formula and shades 2023

Dior recently reformulated their Addict Lip Maximizers ($40 each) and I am thrilled with the new formula and colors. Their Lip Maximizer formula has been one of their best selling glosses and according to Dior they’ve reformulated this to have ingredients that are more natural in origin and revamped the colors to include more opaque shades with different finishes in the classic jelly finish, holographic, shimmer and intense versions.

I am a huge fan of the original formula and I’m happy to find the new ones are just as good. To me feel pretty much identical. They have the same smooth texture, slightly minty cooling sensation, subtle plumping effect, medium lasting power. The main difference is many of the colors have better color payoff with more opaque pigment. They still don’t have super long lasting power but they will stay put for several hours. The bonus of the glossy formula is that they fade nicely and evenly so you don’t have a ring around the edges of your lip. I don’t mind reapplying!

Dior brought back a number of their classic colors and added quite a few new ones. Every single color I tried is beautiful. A few of them are on the sheer side so my natural lip shows through. If your lips aren’t as pigmented as mine are the colors will pull more true to tube on you.

Dior Addict Lip Maximizers new formula and shades 2023

I have 18 of the shades. While you can find this new formula at all Dior retailers and counters like Nordstrom, Sephora, Bloomingdale’s, Ulta Beauty etc. some of them appear to be exclusive to I compared a few of the original shades to their new formulation and the colors are almost identical. Pink and Coral are the same. The new Rosewood pulls a little more neutral. The new Holographic Pink has a slightly less duochrome quality. The new Beige has a bit more pigment compared to the original.

  • 001 Pink – sheer light pink
  • 002 Opal – sheer opal sheen
  • 003 Holographic Lavender – holographic light purple
  • 004 Coral – jelly milky coral peach
  • 005 Shimmer Strawberry – pigmented strawberry pink with a hint of shimmer
  • 006 Berry – soft plum with medium pigment
  • 007 Raspberry – jelly raspberry
  • 009 Intense Rosewood – warm pigmented rose
  • 010 Holographic Pink – shimmering iridescent pink
  • 012 Rosewood – classic soft rose
  • 013 Beige – sheer light beige
  • 014 Shimmer Macadamia – gorgeous rose beige with a hint of pearl
  • 016 Shimmer Nude – shimmery beige nude
  • 018 Intense Spice – creamy warm spice (this is the only one I didn’t swatch on lips)
  • 019 Shimmer Peach – warm coral peach with gold shimmer
  • 026 Intense Mauve – stunning mauve with a bit of shimmer
  • 030 Shimmer Rose – pretty shimmery pink
  • 038 Rose Nude – perfect nude pink cream

I think the shade range is beautiful and they’ve seemed to launch shades to suit every color preference from neutrals to bolds, shimmers to creams and sparkles too! It’s tough to pick favorites and even though I splurged on so many there are other shades I would have liked to try too. If you’re a gloss girl then you’ll be thrilled with this formula and the color extensions.

If I could only pick 5 they would be: 038 Rose Nude, 26 Intense Mauve, 014 Shimmer Macadamia, 007 Raspberry and 030 Shimmer Rose.

Bottom line love and highly recommend. You can find these out now available at Dior, Nordstrom, Sephora, Bloomingdale’s, Ulta Beauty and all other Dior retailers.

Dior Beauty Holiday Addict Pouch

Dior Miss Dior Millefiori Boutique

October 5, 2022

Dior Miss Dior Millefiori

Dior launched some new pieces in their Miss Dior Millefiori Boutique collection with stunning packaging. I ordered a few of the makeup items but they have some beautiful scented products including a Miss Dior limited-edition candle, Bath Bombs and fun Bath Pearls.

I hauled four items to try including the:

Miss Dior Eyeshadow Palette

Dior 5 Couleurs Couture in 1947 Miss Dior

I’ve been really impressed with the Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow Palettes lately and even though I’m not a big purple/mauve eyeshadow wearer the Miss Dior palette looked neutral enough for me to try. It pulls more pink and plum than the stock photo but has a lovely mix for fall. Texture is ultra soft and the mattes are almost creamy. Pigment is medium but easily buildable for a soft smokey plum pink eye.

The Miss Dior Eyeshadow palette has a soft matte medium pink, sparkling light iridescent shimmer, soft reddish-brown satin shade, medium pearly pink rose and a darker matte brown-plum color.

Miss Dior Lips

Dior Addict Case in the Couture Flowers for the Addict Lipsticks

There are three formulas for the Miss Dior color in the Dior Addict (hydrating shine lipstick), Addict Lip Glow (color reviving balm) and Rouge Dior Velvet (classic lipstick). I hauled the 2 glossy looking formulas since I’m a glossy lip kind of person.

There are a few limited-edition lipstick cases to go with the Dior Addict lipsticks. The floral pattern caught my eye and it’s a stunning one! It is made of canvas so I don’t know how I will be able to keep it clean from finger prints or smudges. It’s so pretty though!

The Dior Addict Lipstick formula is one of my favorites from the line. Has a smooth texture, glossy finish, medium to full coverage and I love the way these feel on the lips! The 1947 Miss Dior shade is a pretty soft rosewood with a slightly cool-rose undertone but still pulls neutral. It’s cooler and a bit deeper in color compared to the Nude Look (my favorite).

Dior Addict Lipstick Miss Dior

The Miss Dior Lip Glow is also described as a soft rosewood shade. It looks very similar in the tube to the Rosewood (another favorite). Since these are color reviving balms and will shift in color they will look different on everyone. On my lips Rosewood pulls more true to tube while Miss Dior pulls more of a flushed pink. Both are pretty for that natural flushed kind of glow. I prefer the Rosewood shade but both are really lovely.

Dior Addict Lip Glow Miss Dior

Diorlisse Abricot

Diorlisse Abricot Shade 500

I have one more thing I wanted to share which is the Diorlisse Abricot. This isn’t a new product and is technically nail care as a ridge filler and smoother, but on its own Shade 500 is the perfect pale glossy pink on me. Two coats gives me the smooth semi-sheer pale pink look I want without any streaks. It also dries relatively fast compared to other brands. It’s what I wanted a lot of the Essie pale shades to look like (but take forever to dry, are always too sheer and usually look streaky on me).

If you’re in search for a nice pale pink with a wide rounded brush definitely check either color out in this formula!

Dior Miss Dior Millefiori

Overall love all the items I hauled. I think the eyeshadow palette is really pretty although not super unique. I like that the colors work well though. They layer beautifully and there is enough variation for a complete eye look. Both lip colors are great for fall. Also not super unique with similar options out there but I do see myself getting a lot of use out of the Dior Addict Miss Dior shade.

In case you missed it you can see what I hauled and swatched in the new Rouge Dior Forever longwear lipstick lineup in this post here. The colors are transfer proof and among the longest-wearing formulas I’ve tried!

Dior Addict Lipstick + Forever Skin Glow Foundation Reformulations

May 14, 2022

New Dior Beauty Launches Addict Lipstick + Forever Skin Glow Foundation

I put a few of the newly reformulated products from Dior Beauty to the test! They revamped their Addict Lipsticks and Forever Skin Glow + Matte Foundations and several of you have been asking for a review. I have a look + swatches at some of the new launches for you today.

Addict Lipstick (New)

New Dior Addict Lipstick Review

The new Dior Addict Lipsticks are a shine formula that’s refillable with added hydration and shine. They’re available in a wide range of colors retailing at $39 and refills priced at $32.

The formula is described as offering 24 hours of hydration and 6 hours of wear. They do feel comfortable on the lips with a nice glossy finish and hydrating feel. They have natural medium coverage with medium lasting power. In terms of lasting power I don’t think I could get 6 hours of wear with these. They do stay put as long as I don’t touch my lips to anything but between drinking water, coffee, snacking I can’t avoid contact and it does transfer. However it’s a formula I don’t mind re-applying. They have a sweet almost candy-like scent but it’s not too strong or overpowering.

The Dior Addict Lipsticks are refillable and there are three different cases you can purchase separately to interchange your lipstick in a fun case. Cases retail for $28 each which I find a little steep but they’re fun and I thought they were pretty so I splurged on the Pink and Denim one. They seem to be sold out everywhere right now but I hope they will restock soon.

Dior Addict Lipsticks New + Cases

New Dior Addict Lipstick Review

Lipstick shades I picked include:

  • 100 Nude Look is my perfect everyday nude pink
  • 329 Tie and Dior is a pale cool rose pink
  • 331 Mimirose is a soft peachy nude
  • 537 Atelier is my lips-but-better pink beige brown
  • 422 Rose de Vents is a pretty rose pink
  • 525 Cherie is a warmer deeper rose with some shimmer

Dior Addict Lipstick Cherie

My favorites are Nude Look, Rose de Vents and Cherie. I ordered mine without testing them (they didn’t have testers when I went to look). Now that I’ve had a chance to sample some I think I would have opted for some of the brighter fun shades like Rose Bobby, Rose Bagatelle or Dioriviera for more variation.

Overall really love these. If I could do it over would have picked a few different brighter colors!

Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation

Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation in 3N

Dior reformulated their Forever Skin Glow Foundation and the Matte Foundation and the reviews out there have been mixed. I tried the Glow variation which has been revamped to contain 86% skincare with more hydration and improved lasting power. I really loved the original and I think the new one performs the same on me, but I would say your mileage may vary depending on your skin type and sensitivities to alcohol (it’s high on the ingredient list). My skin is hit or miss with formulas that have alcohol and I was fortunate to find this worked for me.

Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation in 3N

The colors in my shade range are different in the original versus new version. I’m usually in the N neutral range for Dior foundations. In the original version I was a match to 2.5N because 3N oxidized and darkened once it set. The newer version seems to be more true neutral in undertone (see swatches below) and I had no oxidizing with the new formula. For the new version 3N is a good match. Feedback from a lot of you indicates many also experienced the same color-wise with the new formula (better undertone, no oxidation, good wear time).

The new Dior Forever Skin Glow has medium coverage with a glowy finish. Formula evens out skin tone enough that I don’t need concealer. It makes the complexion glow and look radiant. For me it worked well on top of several different moisturizers like the Bobbi Brown Vitamin Enriched Face Base, Elemis Pro-Collagen Marine Cream and It Cosmetics Confidence in a Cream Hydrating Moisturizer. (I tried it over quite a few!) Overall I think it’s a very good formula, but if you are sensitive to alcohol ingredients it probably will be irritating to your skin.

Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation in 3N Original vs New

Dior Forever Bronzer and Backstage Blush

I recently partnered with Dior Beauty to share a makeup look in action with some of the new launches. You can see the video on Reels here. I know some of you still prefer blog posts with images as a reference guide so I thought I’d swatch everything and share some more thoughts here too.


The Dior Forever Nautral Bronzer is one of the best matte bronzers I’ve tried. It’s available in 8 shades (biggest shade selection is available online at while other retailers seem to only carry a few shades) and I’ve tried Shade 03 Soft Bronze and 05 Warm Bronze and love both. It’s a natural bronzer with a matte finish and doesn’t look muddy. Shades range from ultra light to deep. For the Summer Dioriviera Collection they have Shade 04 and 05 with the limited-edition embossed texture which I think is beautiful!

Dior Forever Nautral Bronzer in Shade 05

The Backstage Blush is often sold out but pops back in stock every now and then. If you find it I do recommend it! The Pink shade gives the skin a very soft pink glow. The flush depends on how much you layer onto the skin. If you don’t want to wait to track this down I find that NARS Blush in Thrill gives me a similar effect.

Dior Rosy Glow Backstage Blush Pink

Eye Makeup

Dior 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palettes

The Dior 5 Couleurs Eyeshadow palettes are some of the most under-rated palettes! If you’re not into the trendy warm or red tones, Dior offers quite a few neutrals and neutral-cool options. The one I wear the most is Nude Dress. They still have a lot of more bold and trendy variations too. Formula this round has improved significantly in terms of better color payoff than older versions.

Last mention is yet another rave for the Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara. It’s been one of my favorites for nearly a year now. It’s the best for volume and holding a curl on my super straight lashes. The brush can get some buildup after a while but I just wipe it clean with a piece of paper and it’s like brand new again. I love it with their Diorshow Lash Primer which I’ve purchased and repurchased countless times.

Glowing Beauty Looks for the Holiday Season

November 22, 2021

Holiday Makeup Looks with Dior

Now that the holiday season is in full swing I’m excited to share some holiday looks featuring some new beauty tries from Dior. New bronze and plum tones launched in the Dior Backstage Line at Sephora and I think they’re perfect for a glowing look.

Dior Backstage Plum + Bronze Makeup

Backstage Face and Body Foundation

Dior Backstage Foundation in 3N

A long-wear natural looking base is essential for me this time of year. I want something that stays put, feels lightweight and lasts all day. I love a number of Dior foundations but my go-to this holiday will be the BACKSTAGE Face & Body Foundation (my shade is 3N).

For extra coverage and brightening I love the Dior Forever Skin Correct Concealer (my shade is 2.5N). It’s the one I’ve been reaching for non-stop to help with dark under eye circles. It makes me look more alive and awake. Love the creamy opaque texture that’s easy to blend. Doesn’t cake or crease. 100% love.

New Backstage Makeup Shades: Bronze + Plum

For color Dior launched new colors in the Backstage lineup in Bronze (more natural) and Plum (more glam). If you want a polished look for the holiday, definitely check these out.

Dior Backstage Bronze Makeup

The BACKSTAGE Eyeshadow Palette in Bronze Neutrals is a 9-pan palette. It has a creamy base color you apply all over the lid as a primer. I love that it has a mix of shimmers and metallics with a soft blendable texture. The golds add a nice glow with a brightening effect that I love.

Dior BACKSTAGE Eyeshadow Palette in Bronze

Dior also added a Bronze Lip Glow and Bronze Lip Maximizer to compliment the eyeshadow palette and I love them both. The Bronze Lip Glow has a soft gold look in the tube but it’s color enhancing and on my lips it gives me a soft flushed pink glow with a subtle sheen. The Bronze Lip Maximizer is a stunning sparkling copper bronze. It has a smooth finish (no texture even with the shimmer). I love it alone or layered on top of the Lip Glow.

Dior Backstage Makeup Plum

For a more glam look the Plum color palette has some nice neutral-cool tones. The BACKSTAGE Eyeshadow Palette in Plum Neutrals has a mix of pink, gold, plum and grey. You girls know I gravitate towards bronze tones and neutrals, but I really love the purples in this one!

The Lip Glow and Lip Maximizers in Plum are both stunning. They look ultra deep in the tube but on the lips they give a more sheered out plum look. The Lip Maximizer is more of a true plum while the Lip Glow gives my lips a more flushed stained plum look.

Dior Rouge Dior Lipstick in Nude Look

For the neutral lip lover I can’t rave enough about the Rouge Dior in Nude Look. It’s been my go-to neutral nude rose lip this year, love that it has a soft velvety finish.

Last I have a look at the Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet and Lip Glow Gift Set. It’s perfect to gift to the beauty lover or yourself. The Miss Dior Blooming Bouquet has a really pretty floral vibe perfect to lift the mood and spirits.

Also wearing the Diorshow Maximizer 3D Triple Volume Plumping Lash Primer + Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara, Rouge Blush in Rose Montaigne, Forever Natural Bronzer in Shade 5.

Dior Makeup Favorites and Staples | The Beauty Lookbook

Dior has some great everyday makeup staples and I wanted to do a blog roundup for those of you who still prefer detailed blog posts versus video or social media posts. I’ve done a few tutorial videos on my Instagram which I will include below for reference. Many thanks to each of you who took the time to leave a nice comment on the video or messaged me! I truly appreciate the support!

I love Dior for their beautiful limited-edition collections but today’s roundup focuses on staples that are part of their more permanent collection. I usually shop for Dior at Sephora because they have the Backstage Line or because they often have great deluxe samples available with your purchase. I love getting those little samples of their La Privee fragrance line to try! Also the Dior website usually stocks the entire collection for limited-edition launches while it seems like other retailers don’t always have everything.

Dior Makeup Favorites | The Beauty Lookbook

Base Favorites

There are two foundations I love from Dior. If you like medium to full coverage with a glow, the Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation ($52) is a nice one with SPF 35. I use either the Shade 2.5N or 3N. It has a natural radiant finish with good lasting power. I do find the color oxidizes and darkens slightly once it sets.

For a more fluid lightweight finish the BACKSTAGE Face & Body Foundation ($40) is a popular one you can use to blend out imperfections and uneven tones. It’s a sheer natural finish but has buildable coverage. It’s waterproof and sweat resistant. I love the BACKSTAGE Customizable Set that’s a exclusive. It’s the same price as the individual foundation but comes with a large mesh zip pouch and a mini primer.

Dior Forever Skin Glow Foundation and Backstage Face and Body 3N

Another product I love is the Dreamskin Fresh Perfect Cushion, but this is more of a skincare SPF product with a tint in one versus a foundation. I love the formula and wear but the shade range is horrendous. I love cushions but they still haven’t seemed to taken off in the US.


Dior Forever Skin Correct Concealer 2N, 2W, 2.5N, 3N

The Dior Forever Skin Correct Concealer ($36) has been a cult classic for quite some time but I never tried it until recently. It 100% lives up to the hype and is now in my Top 3 formulas for multi-tasking. It’s creamy, opaque, easy to blend and makes me look more alive. I ordered quite a few shades since I wasn’t sure how it would perform color-wise. Shade 2.5N is my favorite for my skin tone but for brightening 2N or 2W work for me too.

If you try one thing from Dior I would recommend that you try the concealer.

Dior Forever Skin Correct Concealer swatches 2N, 2W, 2.5N, 3N


Two powders I like from Dior are the BACKSTAGE Face & Body Powder-No-Powder ($40) in 2N and the Forever Loose Cushion Powder ($58) in 20 Light.

Dior BACKSTAGE Face & Body Powder-No-Powder and Cushion Powder

The Backstage Powder is a pressed blurring powder with a sheer finish. It still has enough color that you need a good match. I picked one shade lighter than my usual tone because I found the colors run dark. (Also on the face in this Dior Lip Glow post here.)

The Forever Loose Cushion Powder is cased in a beautiful compact with a mesh cover and powder puff. This is a sheer matte finish powder that sets the makeup really nicely. I like that it’s matte but not overly matte. I would say the main downside is the price. It’s expensive for the amount of product you get.

I recently ordered a few beauty tools from Dior and really like the Dior Backstage Kabuki Brush 17 ($57). There are a lot of good retractable brushes out there so if you already have one I’d recommend sticking with what you have. I do like having a cover on some of my brushes as it makes it easier for touch ups on the go or for travel.


Dior Bronzer + Blush Favorites

Dior blushes and bronzers have also gone through multiple reformulations and revamps over the years. I really love the blushes and wish there were more colors! Rouge Blush ($44) in Charnelle 459 is a really nice brownish neutral with a satin glow. Formula is soft, blendable and melts into the skin beautifully!

The Dior Backstage Rosy Glow Blush ($37) in 001 Pink is like the Lip Glow but for cheeks. Your mileage may vary depending on your skin tone but I like this for a really natural light pink flush. It does adjust on my skin a few minutes after application. It’s almost always sold out at Sephora, but still available at

For bronzer the Dior Forever Natural Bronze ($48) is one of the best matte bronzers I’ve tried. Looking at the pan it’s not 100% matte. I would call this a radiant matte. I use Shade 05 Warm Bronze but can also wear 03 Soft Bronze. It warms up the complexion in a natural way and I like the color tones. This is another example of a product where has more shade options available than other retailers. If you’re ultra fair 01 Fair Bronze looks like one that won’t be too dark for you.

Eye Makeup

Dior 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palettes

The 5 Couleurs Couture Eyeshadow Palettes ($62) are palettes I think I’ve tried in every re-formulation since the 2000s. This current formulation has the softest most finely milled texture out of all the Dior eyeshadows I’ve tried. They can be on the delicate side so I’d recommend being a little more careful with the palettes. has the most color options available. To track down other shades you might have to do a bit of shopping around. Four I really like are New Look, Nude Dress, Mitzah and Poncho. They have a good mix of finishes with mattes, shimmers, satins and sparkles. Even the mattes have a luminous subtle glow.

Pigment is medium to full and buildable. The soft texture makes it easy to blend and layer.

Diorshow Maximizer 3D Triple Volume Plumping Lash Primer and Iconic Overcurl mascara

Dior has so many formulas of mascara it’s hard to pick a favorite. I’ve tried so many over the years but most recently repurchased the Diorshow Maximizer 3D Triple Volume Plumping Lash Primer ($29.50, one of the best lash primers) and the Diorshow Iconic Overcurl Mascara ($29.50). I really love the overcurl formula for volume and holding the curl. I also BACKSTAGE Lash Curler ($26) which is pretty good!


For lips I love the Lip Maximizers ($35) for a nice plumping gloss that doesn’t have the sharp sting. Colors adjust on my lips with a subtle tint. I have quite a few shades but find I reach for 001 Pink, 012 Rosewood or 016 Shimmer Nude the most. I also really love Ultra Pink (limited-edition shade).

I still love the Lip Glows but already did a full review. In case you missed it you can see the review and swatches of the New Lip Glow Formula here.

For lipstick and lipliners I have to admit I find the color options a little overwhelming, especially when counters like Nordstrom, Sephora or Neimans don’t always have the full color range. I picked Nude Look 100 in the Rouge Dior Lipstick ($38) and Lip Contour Lip Liner ($31) and LOVE the color. For a liquid lip the Rouge Dior Forever Liquid Transfer-Proof Lipstick ($38) in Forever Nude 100 is a close match with a lightweight finish.
