DIOR Cherie Bow Blush 729 Pink Happiness Review, Swatches and FOTD

February 27, 2013

The DIOR Cherie Bow is a collection that catches my heart this season. The theme is just so pretty, delicate and pink. I can’t pass by a beautiful blush like the DIOR Cherie Bow Blush in 729 Pink Happiness. It’s one of the most-wanted items for me from this collection when I first saw the preview, and after have been wearing it for the past few weeks it totally lived up to my expectations.


DIOR Cherie Bow Blush 729 is a dual pink powder blush in neutral pink. One side of the blush is matte, and the other side is slightly shimmer. I always like blushes that come with different textures, so it won’t look too flat on the face and always seem to make the application easier for a natural layering effect.  The texture is standard Dior. It’s very densely packed so it doesn’t get powdery when you swirl the brush over. The powder feels silky smooth, and the pigmentation is good enough to show with a few swipes. For application, you can apply the matte side first then add the shimmering part for a layering effect. Or you can mix them up then apply as a lazy person like me would do! The results are the same – it adds a delicate touch of pink to the cheeks with a soft glow. It is not an overpowering pink, but pretty enough to give you a youthful look and make the face look more alive .

Swatches: Left: Matte, Middle: Shimmer, Right: Mixed


FOTD wearing Dior Cherie Blush in 729, and the Dior Diorshow Mono Eye Shadows in Spencer and Tweed (reviewed here) on my upper lid, and only Spencer on my lower lid.

On my face which is very tanned at the moment, the blush shows up very close to a neutral pink with a hint of coral.


DIOR-Cheri-Bow-Blush-729-Pink-Happiness-fotd-3DIOR-Cheri-Bow-Blush-729-Pink-Happiness-fotd-4Bottom Line: Definitely a must have blush if pink is your weakness! I bought mine in Australia for $75. It is also available here in the US, or here that ships internationally except Australia..

On a side note, a good news for the fashion fellas! Shopbop is holding its annual Spring Event with the following discounts. I always prefer this type of event as it applies to all merchandise (not just for the past season items), and I have so many items on my wishlist but I need to narrow them down from a maternal perspective which is very challenging 😛

Pretty! Suits you very well! What do you think about givenchy blushes?

I swatched this blush back and forth, first, I thought, nah, it is rather boring but the more I was thinking, what blush should I use today, the more I wanted Dior’s Pink Happiness. I love your pictures Reika, I think you have found the perfect shape (eyeshadow, crease) for your eyes, it always looks so perfect. I am playing with my 2 Dior monos as well this week. I think this blush suits your complexion so well xxx

I agree that both textures of matte & glow makes it a lit-within glowy pink, looking gorgeous on you. I like the mauvy purple eyemakeup too, and the shopbop event is too tempting 🙂
