There is a certain sense of accomplishment when I finally lay my hands on something that I’ve been lusting after for a long time. Ever since the Dior My Lady Blush 007 was released in the US, I’ve wanted it so badly. By the time it finally launched in Singapore, I tried rationalizing to myself that I’ve already got 2 of these at home, and if it is simply a coral blush I wanted, the Dior Tie Dye Coral Sunset blush [reviewed here] made a more interesting addition (design-wise) to my collection. But of course, in true makeup-addict form, all reason flew out of the window when I met 007 in person.
We can analyze this blush to death, and swatch and compare each of the stripes, but in reality it’s simply meant to be admired, and used swiped all over. So I’m just going to keep things simple here, and let the product do the talking on its own.
If you are not familiar yet, Dior My Lady Blush is a special capsule collection of powdered blushes that bear the signature Dior cannage weave design. Each of them are limited edition, with 002 and 003 released last Spring [reviewed here and here respectively]. For those who are seeking to collect, 004 is a special piece that is only available for member point redemption; whilst 005 is an illuminating face powder that was sold exclusively in Japan. 006 was released in Japan in Spring this year, and recently made its way to Singapore and was released at the same time as 007 under the Amour, Dior! Collection [read here] and was instantly sold out. I do not have any news about 001, if anybody knows when and where it was released, please leave me a note below!
Dior My Lady 007 is special because it is the only coral blush in the family. Even though 002 was named Soft Coral it is still ultimately a pink blush. Here are some comparison swatches to give you an idea. I do not own 003 at the moment, but if you referred to the swatch in my earlier review post here, it is lighter and more pink than 002. At the same time, there is still a bit of pink in 007, making it redder, less peachy than Dior Tie Dye Coral Sunset. All the blushes shown here contain some very slight shimmers, to create that luminous finish on the cheeks when applied but will not turn your cheeks into disco balls.
007 is also the most pigmented of the lot, so do approach with a light hand. I am always looking for blushes that I can apply with my red squirrel brush which is so soft and silky it picks up practically nothing, but with the right product, it creates the most beautiful soft flush and is the ultimate sensory pleasure. This particular 007 blush gets extra brownie points for being 1 of a handful that pairs perfectly with my red squirrel!
And without boring you with more unnecessary chatter, here is how it looks on my cheeks.
Have you managed to snag any of these beautiful Dior My Lady blushes yet?
Now get me my martini, shaken not stirred, please……
