Welcoming Dior My Lady Blush 007 To the Family

June 11, 2015

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.

Dior My Lady Blush 007

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.

  1. Looking at the lovely golden sparkles in this one again. So happy wth my decision ^^,

  2. Sofia says:

    Oh yes, this blush is so pretty to look at!

  3. I wore mine yesterday and it is pretty, blends beautifully and lasts so long! Like lasted full day on me. Even my foundation was gone but this was there hahah. Scary stuff.
    Oh and no more fingers on my 006 ;-))

      Hahahahaa Sara!! Yes maam, gonna tape it up, and box it up, shall i ship it over soon? Yes, these blushes are so easy to wear, some of my favorites from Dior!

  4. Oh gosh! That is soooo pretty. But even if I could get it I’m savig my money for the new Guerlain blushes – I might actually dare to touch those!

    • silverkis says:

      Hmm…. i may still be able to get hold of this 007… let me know if you change your mind!

      • You’re so good, Linda, and I’m very very tempted, especially as it is a LE and the almost invisible golden shimmer is so pretty! But I think those are kind of like chips, or meteorites, or LE terracottas. Once you get hold of one your life won’t be complete until you have, f not a full collection, then at least a substantial one. Now I’m going to head over to evil bay to try to get hold of one of those lovelyGuerlain GWP brush kits with a long-handled terracotta-brush. You guys are so lucky and you’ve got the best LE releases (Guerlain poudre de soie) and GWPs. Up here you’ll be lucky to get a small makeup pouch!

        • silverkis says:

          LOL, I fully understand the need to catch ’em all!! Oh no…. i hope it’s not too expensive on evilbay! [PS: I own a few Guerlain gwp brush sets…. they’re kinda scratchy! If you’d like, I’d be happy to send you mine!]

          • Are you sure? Do you have the red, long-handled Guerlain brush? They are approximately the same price as the retail price for one of the Météorites brushes around here. Aaaaaand I’m starting to think I deserve a special treat for my cheeks (I fell in love with the glimmers), so if you can get a hold of another 007 without too much effort…

          • silverkis says:

            I have 1 meteorites brush which is pink bristled with white handle. The other brush set I have is black bristles with black handles. I used to have the red bristled set but I gave that away.

            Let me check on that 007 and get back to you via email!

  5. Beautiful blushes, you’re lucky girl 😉

  6. beauty bloss says:

    Stunning design! Lols, I am so shallow, but give me a gorgeous looking product (that works) over a plain looking one any day x

  7. Lily says:

    Ah gorgeous! OK, I’m going to use mine. You convinced me 🙂

  8. Oh this is preeeettty!!! I most certainly do not need another coral blush, but that doesn’t stop me from wanting more!!!
