The Cream Blush Game Changer: Diorblush Cheek Creme in Capri

[Products in this post were purchased by me, except *, which was a Sephora promotion freebie.]

I will start off by saying that to my knowledge, these are only available at Macy's right now (in the US, I mean), so that is where you should look.

Because you should look. And buy one. If not two. Or four. I rarely encourage people to buy out a line, but that's how much I like this blush.

I got the baby pink one - Capri. I usually try to pick new shades when trying something new, so I don't accumulate too much of the same color. I have been really loving baby pink this summer (evidence), and this looked perfect.

It didn't disappoint. I use my RT Stippling brush to apply it to my cheeks, straight from the pot (yes, the brush head is slightly bigger than the pot, but it still picks up plenty of product) for the best natural blush. It's seamless, and really has that "skin lit from within" color that a natural flush would give you. Illamasqua's formula feels more slippery to the touch and can look a little flat in comparison; Becca's Beach Tints are liquid but have the same lasting power. With respect to how the blush looks when worn, I'd have to say that Dior's formula is my favorite.

Capri has a slight shimmer, but it's not really sparkly - it just seems like you added a touch of highlighter to your foundation. It's nearly impossible to overdo, and lasts all damned day. Even through dance class. I seriously want another one - maybe Panama.
Also wearing:
Laura Mercier Smooth Foundation* in
Buff, Bobbi Brown corrector in Peach, MUFE Aqua Brow 25,
UDPP Eden, theBalm Nude'Tude, Smashbox Limitless Liquid Liner pen, Clinique High Impact Waterproof mascara,
Capri, MAC Whisper of Gilt.
However, if these are sold out in your area, don't despair. They remind me of the YSL cream blushes (which I don't own, but have tested in stores) in texture, and I think you could happily settle for one of those. I am going to explore that line, as well.

If you don't believe me, you can go see Capri on Teri, Paris and Tracy, as well.
