This is a powder blusher by Dior that I have used for several years now as my everyday blusher, when hastily applying a small amount of make up before going to work. It is quick and easy to apply and I find gives me a natural blush that I like.
The blusher comes in several different shades and each compact has two different shades/sections in it - a lighter blusher with a small hint of sparkle and a darker matte colour. You can use them separately or combine them together. I use the shade 839 Vintage Rose, which is a pretty pink colour
The packaging of the blusher is gorgeous like most Dior products and it comes in a dark blue and silver compact with an internal mirror in a blue velour pouch. There is a small blusher brush inside the compact which is effective to begin with but after a few months I find it gets a bit worn. It can be washed though which helps to bring it back to life.
To use the blusher I apply the dark colour first to my cheeks and then dust the lighter and more sparkly colour over the top to give a few highlights at the top of my cheekbones. It is easy to apply and can be built up gradually so you can achieve the look that you want. I am sure that someone who is more proficient at applying makeup than I am could use the palette to more effect!
The blusher colour is quite natural and lasts most of the day, but does have to be re-applied if you want the strength of colour to remain. The price is expensive at about £29 but I find that used normally the blusher lasts me for about 2 years before I have to replace it.
In summary I would recommend this blusher as a premium product that gives a natural look.
