Dior Rosy Glow Blush is unique because of its PH adjusting formula, but it doesn’t have the best performance compared to others.

Dior Rosy Glow Blush is pricey for what it is.
Blush is one of my favorite makeup products and I have so many in my collection. I love a pop of color on the cheeks, whether it’s a subtle rosy pink or an orange in the summertime (my favorite). The Dior Rosy Glow Blush was recently reformulated to be an even more seamless formula. I’ve got to say, the original Dior blush formula wasn’t my favorite powder blush, so I was excited to see if I’d like the new one more. Plus, there’s more colors in the collection!
Quick Rating Rundown
Promises vs. Performance: PH adjusting, lightweight, and long wearing.
Meet the iconic Dior Rosy Glow Blush, a PH adjusting formula that creates a customized color based on your unique composition. It promises to seamlessly blend into skin, giving a healthy glow. The pigment is buildable, but remains lightweight and weightless for an all day glowy pop of color.
While the Dior Rosy Glow Blush is lightweight on, it has the tendency to look chalky (mostly the lighter shades) and exaggerate skin texture, lines, and bumps. It’s not the most pigmented blush and I find I really have to layer on the pigment to get it to show up. This is part of what leads to it sitting on top of the skin rather than blending seamlessly as promised. It also isn’t the most long wearing. It fades pretty quickly (after around 4-5 hours) unless layered over top of a cream or liquid blush.
I’m going to be honest the Dior Rosy Glow Blush isn’t my favorite powder blush. The new formula is better than the old, but it just doesn’t impress me. In my opinion, this is a pretty average performing blush that is overpriced.
How It Compares: Is this Dior Rosy Glow the best powder blush?
Dior Rosy Glow Blush is what made the bubblegum pink blush trend popular, and, now, many brands have their own. Truth be told, there are several other baby pink blush formulas I love even more – from Too Faced to MERIT and HAUS LABS. Whether the Dior blush is always sold out or you just don’t love it, there’s several other options out there.

Comparison To Top Performers
Best Powder Blush
Depending on which price category you look at, the best powder blush is either NARS Blush or Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush. These are tried and true favorites that perform across all skin types and textures. NARS blush comes in 15 shades across shimmer and matte finishes, and Hourglass blush comes 8 shades with radiant and shimmer finishes. They’re long wearing and wear great alone or paired with a cream or liquid blush.
Best Drugstore Powder Blush
elf Primer Infused Blush has got to be the best at the drugstore thanks to its price and performance. Its buildable pigment is lightweight and weightless, delivering a sheer to bold cheek look. This is a favorite for a matte cheek because of its soft, buttery texture and long wear. The primer-infused blush wears with minimal fading, settling into pores and lines, or clinging to dry spots and acne. For a blush on a budget that does not budge, this is the one.
Best Clean/Talc Free Powder Blush
If you’re more of a clean beauty gal, you’ll love the HAUS LABS Color Fuse Blush. These blushes are pigmented, long wearing, and don’t exaggerate any skin texture/blemishes. The formula is infused with fermented arnica to help combat redness along with hydrating hydraberry that ensures a second-skin finish. Even though this HAUS LABS blush features quite intense pigment, the formula is buildable and it applies without being patchy. The matte finish works to blur pores and wear for 8+ hours.
