Plum Pop (11)
Dior Plum Pop (11) Diorskin Nude Luminizer Blush ($48.00 for 0.21 oz.) is a medium-dark, reddened plum with warm undertones and cooler, pink and violet pearl and faint sparkle. It had rich color coverage that adhered evenly to bare skin and blended out seamlessly along the edges for a moderate, glowing sheen that wasn’t overly shimmery, though there were a few microsparkles so anyone who loathes sparkle/glitter may find it “noticeable” (but not something I noticed from a normal viewing distance).
The texture was smooth to the touch–dense and firmer but not stiff to work with–so there was no powderiness, which made easier to pick up less product if preferred for a more buildable color application. I would recommend using a moderately dense, rounder/flatter brush to pick up product over a more feathery or fan-style brush. It wore well for eight and a half hours on me before fading noticeably.

The formula is supposed to “reveal a radiant glow” with a “high concentrateion of pearlescent pigments” that give the skin “multidimensional colour.” It has a smooth consistency that has a denser, firmer feel to it, which means that the formula works best with moderately dense brushes. The firmness didn’t translate to stiffness or difficulty in blending; quite the opposite, as the blushes blended out beautifully and sat well on my skin. There was no powderiness, and it was easier to build up color if that was desired as it was hard to pick up too much product. They wore well for eight to nine hours on me.
