Summer with.. Diorblush Cheek Creme in Bikini!

Finally, the weekend is here! I had some unplanned busy days, so apologies for not having posted any extensive blogposts the last few days. Luckily I’ve got something very, very exciting to share with you today! A few days ago I received this gorgeous Diorblush Cheek Creme in Bikini, which is part of the Summer Mix collection. As you know I’ve been all about creamy textures lately (dewy fresh looks, how could I not be crazy about creamy textures?), so this product is right up my alley. I’m also a fan of color coordinating different parts of your make-up, like Guerlain matching lipstick & lipgloss and Givenchy matching lipstick & nail polish. Dior is taking it one step further by allowing to match your blush with your nail polish. A very subtle match, but a stellar idea.

You can pair this blush with the nail varnish Créoles for the Cannes look from this collection. This color is supposedly an apricot color, but I think it’s got too much pink/red in there to be apricot! My pictures are quite true to real color (which can be hard with these hot colors!), so I’m sure that some other people will even find this to look even different. The texture of this one is quite different, it’s not as creamy as some other cream blushes I’ve tried.. It’s much more mousse like, but not as moussey that would make you too much product when dipping your finger in. It almost looks a bit bouncy, but it’s not. It’s near impossible to describe, I can only advise you that it’s extremely nice to work with. This would be a great cream blush for first-timers when it comes to cream textures on your cheeks.

I was a bit scared at first because it’s to BRIGHT, but it doesn’t fail to deliver as a natural flush when applied. Take some product on your finger and blend it out on the back of your hand. Then, pat some on the apples of your cheeks and blend in with two clean fingers. Add some more color if needed, and continue to work it in until it’s perfect. You can go ultra daring with this one and go very bright, or just go natural and tackle that dewy summery look. The amount of product you get in this little pot will keep you going until next summer even, or just the whole year through if you’re lucky enough to live in Maui or any other place where’s it’s summer all of the time (can I move in with you?).


And this is a first.. A picture of me! I wanted to show you how natural this blush can look, but it just doesn’t show with an arm swatch, right? So here you go. I love the natural flush it gives me in this picture.. It gives such a healthy look! And the best thing? I’m not even wearing too much product here! I used Bourjois Healthy Mix for foundation, Bobbi Brown Creamy Concealer Kit under the eyes & I’m not sure which mascara. Perfect and easy breezy for Spring or Summer.


Dior Summer Mix will be in stores (in Belgium, check local counters for your local street date) from June 19th on and will feature four products: nail varnish at €24.89, Diorblush Cheek Cream at €33.02, Poudre de Soleil at €51.01 and Poudre Couleur et Eclat at €55.16.
