Dior #763 Corail Bagatelle Blush (Limited Edition), Trianon Edition

Dior Corail Bagatelle opener

 

The Dior Trianon Collection for Spring 2014, has some seriously breathtaking pieces in its lineup, and in my opinion, the #763 Corail Bagatelle blush (Limited Edition) has got to be THE star of the entire launch. With cream blushes from every brand storming the recent makeup counters, it’s nice to see that the powder version is still quite a presence. Add to that an amazing colour and a sculptural bow, and well … I’m definitely sold.

Dior Corail Bagatelle

#763 Corail Bagatelle Blush, Trianon Edition LE (CAN $44.00) – A beautifully pigmented and ultra-finely milled powder blusher in a peony pink hue with strong coral undertones in the base, housed in the brand’s signature luxurious royal blue lacquered compact case. Initial swatches reveal a subtle hint of shimmer, which serves to add a nice dimension of depth, while also providing a drop-dead gorgeous lustre to the skin. As #763 Corail Bagatelle is quite colour-saturated, I recommend beginning with a light hand and then upping the intensity to your desired level.

The raised bow & dotted pattern on the surface is absolutely adorable (I’m such a total SUCKER for these things) but sadly will eventually erode with continued use – and believe me, this is one of those universally flattering shades that is sure to see a TON of use in your beauty routine. There’s a lovely rose scent to the powder, although nothing I notice once it’s actually applied. The small angled brush that’s included in the compact is surprisingly quite good – softly bristled and able to not only pick up a nice amount of product, but also gives a decent enough application – although I personally prefer using my own brushes for the job. Still, it’s good to know that this can also work in a pinch. Lasting power is quite impressive as well, especially when #763 Corail Bagatelle is applied over foundation, going easily to the 9 – 10 hour mark before fading.

If you pass on everything else from this collection, I suggest you do NOT skip this little beauty, especially if you happen to be as blush-obsessed as I am. With its perfect balance of cool and warm tones, this shade will suit a wide variety of skin hues and will be THE perfect colour once the warmer weather sets in. Bear in mind that this is a limited edition (and totally backup-worthy) piece and as the Summer collections will soon start trickling onto counters, you may not want to put off snagging one of these for yourself.

I purchased this from The Bay (Canada).
