Dior Blush 889 Pink In Love Glowing Color Powder Blush Swatches, Comparisons and Review

Toward the end of the Nordstrom Anniversary Sale, July 2011, I had the opportunity to have a makeover at the Dior Counter. You can view the end result here.  The blush that was used was Dior Pink In Love, #889, Glowing Color Power Blush.  Today I have pictures, swatches and a review of that blush.

The blush is part of the Blue Tie Collection for Fall 2011. It looked scary bright in the store but applies as heavily or lightly as you would like. It has a deep rose satin finish on one side and a lighter shimmering pink on the other. Neither side is glittery or sparkly but rather each has a tone-on-tone shimmer for a nice satin finish. It comes with a brush in the mirrored compact. The blush retails for $42 at Nordstrom, Dillards and wherever else Dior can be found.

I have swatched it on my arm, and it warms up just a little. On the left is the dark side, the middle is the light side and on the right, the swatch is a combination of the two.

I also wanted to show it compared to a few other popular blushes of the moment. On the very left is Chanel Pink Explosion. Working your way to the right, the next blush is Chanel Tourbillon. The middle three swatches are the swatches of Dior Pink In Love. To the left of that is Dior Bronze Harmonie in Coral Riviera, and lastly swatched again is Chanel Pink Explosion.

I wear all of these blushes often so they'll all be mentioned frequently in what I wear. They're not fly-by-night blushes, but important pieces of the current rotation. This blush can be used to be quite summery or as a winter flush. Thanks for viewing it. I really love it and I like to share those things that I love.


  1. Love those colours, especially the middle one :) xx

  2. The middle one is the light color of the Dior duo. They all look really great on and can be used lightly or heavily.

  3. Thanks for the swatches, I was curious about this shade.

  4. Please stop tempting me. Really! Every since I saw you wearing this blush, I've been itching to get my hands on it. I'm waiting for it to arrive at Sephora so I can use my VIB coupon. Beautiful shade!

  5. I bought the pink in love blush as well it such an amazing blush nothing like the chanel blushes I normally use love this dior blush just as much.
    thanks for this great review!
