Dior Coral Glow Diorskin Nude Tan Paradise Duo Is Easy to Love, Easy to Use!

Dior Coral Glow FOTD

I was in total denial when I thought I could steer myself away from Dior Coral Glow Diorskin Nude Tan Paradise Duo (phew that’s a long name. Let’s stick to Coral Glow, shall we? Also, the practical information: it contains 9,5 grams/0/33 oz. RRP in Belgium: 60,27 euros). I mean, I almost never reach for a bronzer and I own several coral blushes already. When I finally saw the display however, I couldn’t resist dipping my greedy finger in the pan and bang, the rest is history!

Dior Diorskin Nude Tan packaging

Dior Diorskin Nude Tan comes in rather hefty silver packaging (read: horrible reflective nightmare for beauty bloggers). Both the compact and the enclosed kabuki brush come with a pouch. That way, you can carry the compact without worrying about it getting scratched up, and the brush without worrying about it collecting dust.

Dior Coral Glow and the kabuki brush in all their glory!

Dior Diorskin Nude Tan Coral Glow Paradise Duo

Dior Coral Glow comes with 2 bronzer shades and 2 blush shades, which is exactly why it would work well for both bronzer lovers and those of us who usually skip the step. Even though I can’t be bothered to bronze, once I open up the compact I probably will! The powder is very lightly-scented. In fact, I didn’t even notice till I stuck my nose close to the powder in order to write up the review. It smells a bit like cucumber, but the scent is so light and fresh that I don’t think most would be bothered.

The enclosed kabuki brush is not only usable but actually really decent. The hair is not scratchy at all! I have heard about it kicking up too much excess, but here is what I discovered: don’t really “swirl” it around in the pan. If you drag it across the pan instead, there is no powder kick-up to be spoken of! It works well buffing the powders into the skin as well, so it’s a winner in my book!

Here is a closer look at the shades:

Here are the swatches of the shades, though I don’t really think there is a point discussing all four of them separately. The fact is if you use a full-size brush, it is very hard to pick only one of them up.

Dior Coral Glow separate shade swatch

That’s why I made the following swatches to show you more realistically how it looks! From left to right: the bronzer shades mixed together, the blush shades mixed together, all four mixed together, all four mixed together and blended out:

Dior Coral Glow swatch

All the shades are extremely soft, finely-milled, and pigmented at the right level. I wouldn’t call the compact shimmery, but it does have a little healthy sheen so it doesn’t look too matte. On my skin tone, I can use the bronzer to both contour and add just a bit of healthy color to my face. The blush is a beautiful pink coral that is pigmented, blendable, and buildable. While I don’t think the bronzer side would show up on darker skin tones, the blush shouldn’t have this problem.

One concern I had before getting to swatch Dior Coral Glow in person was that when all four shades are mixed together, the result would be muddy. Well, it isn’t! It’s a toned-down and natural-looking coral blush; not as bright and pink as the blush side, but wearable and healthy!

One more picture just because it’s so gorgeous! I like this one because I found a bird on the dress, which works well with the Bird of Paradise theme!

A couple more pictures with Dior Coral Glow on me. I used the blush side as a blush, and the bronzer side on the contour of my face (also on the bridge of my nose and so on):

Dior Riviera Addict Extreme FOTD

For those who are curious, I’m wearing Dior Golden Sand 1 Couleur Eye Gloss on my lids, Dior Aqua Green Diorshow Liner Waterproof on my lower lash line, and Dior Riviera Addict Extreme on my lips. I used nothing but Aqua Green on my lower lash line because last time I lined my lower waterline black and the color ended up looking darker. For those of you who have asked if it’s similar to last year’s Turquoise: no, I don’t think they are similar at all! Aqua Green is very much a green, while Turquoise has quite a bit of blue mixed in.

Also, can I just say I have been really silly for forgetting all about Dior Riviera Addict Extreme? How did I get sidetracked from such a great shade? Must give it a lot of love now!

Bottom line: If you like a good blush, a good bronzer, a versatile compact that will make you look nice and healthy, you should at least swatch Dior Coral Glow! You have been warned though: with this kind of quality and versatility, it is very hard not to fall for it! I actually really like Pink Glow as well. Let’s just say if money is no object they’d both be mine!

Have you seen Dior Coral Glow? Is it a yes, no, or maybe for you?

  • http://www.bellachique.be Teri

    Oh great, the whole look you did is just gorgeous! The teal liner really works great with coral glow!

    • Sunny

      Aww thanks Teri! I’m totally ready for summer!

  • http://aucupariabrumalis.wordpress.com Claire

    when the promo pic started to show up on the web, I wasn’t ‘that’ interested but all those amazing swatches made me want it! It looks like a very good bronzer and I adore corals, so this one would be right up my alley. I like how you used this bronzer, it still looks natural, yet your bone structure is defined <3

    • Sunny

      I was trying very hard to tell myself I wouldn’t be interested in it: well, sometimes the heart wants what the heart wants! I don’t think you can go wrong with this bronzer. It really is on the natural side. Not orange or too dark at all!

  • http://memoiselle.com/ Meryl @ Memoiselle

    Oh yay :) I’ve got this too but in pink glow!
    It’s so gorgeous in many ways; the packaging, the presentation, the color! I missed last year Nude Tan so I know I should have this ;)

    • Sunny

      OH YAY, Meryl! Glad to hear that! I don’t own a Nude Tan because I don’t bronze. I love this one because it’s got a great blush and once I open up the compact, I will most probably use the bronzer as well!

  • http://mybeautysample.com/ Becca @ The Beauty Sample

    Yaaaay–so glad you got it and love it as much as I do, Sunny! I’m still surprised that Tracy had so much problems with dust kicking up though. I can actually swirl the kabuki around the 4 shades to my heart’s content and I don’t get any more product kicking up than I would normally with any other powder–nothing worth mentioning at all :/ But anyway, the color is gorgeous–I’ve been using it every single day since testing it! :D

    • Sunny

      Yaaay totally, Becca! The first time I tried the brush I swirled it around in the compact. There really was quite a bit of powder kicking up! And then I got smarter and dragged. I wonder if we just use too much pressure? ;) This is probably my official go-to blush this summer!

  • http://www.unprofessionalbeautyblog.com Angela @ The Unprofessional Beauty Blog

    Gorgeous on you, and the coral shade is beautiful. Sunny, I love your eye makeup too. That green liner on your lower lash line is beautiful.

  • http://redhotjillypeppers.com Redhotjillypeppers

    Such a lovely product just to look at ! And it looks very pretty on you.

    • Sunny

      Thanks, Jill! I’m glad to report after using/swatching it several times, the pattern isn’t messed up yet!

  • http://www.beautyloves.be BeautyLoves

    I’m lusting over the pink one, so gorgeous!

    • Sunny

      Seriously, if I had the money BOTH would be mine! The pink one is equally gorgeous!

  • http://beautiesatwork.wordpress.com/ beauties

    you’re breaking my heart xD

    • Sunny

      Aww well get it as a nice present to kick start summer with? ;)

  • http://miaka-mylife.blogspot.com Ruby

    It’s a YES YES YES for me! Looks great on you!

    • Sunny

      Thanks Ruby! You can definitely tone it down a little too. I piled more on for the pictures because otherwise it wouldn’t show.

  • http://www.valleydollbeautyblog.blogspot.com ValleyDoll

    Ooh it’s soooo pretty ! I have been eyeing it for some time now. Might pick it up in store one of these days.

    • Sunny

      Hey Eva, I hope you’ll love it as much as I do!

  • http://www.chloeash.com Lily

    Love this blush on you. It brightens your complexion and makes you look so fresh and young! It’s definitely a keeper, Sunny :-)

    • Sunny

      Thanks Lily! This is DEFINITELY going back to Taipei with me :)

  • http://www.thesmalllittlethingsinlife.blogspot.com Annick

    It’s gorgeous on you Sunny! Really gives you a summery glow. I especially like the swatch of the two shades together – soooooo gorgeous! I might have to pick this one up on my trip – there’s no Dior where I live :( . My wishlist is getting dangerously big!

    • Sunny

      Thanks Annick! You should definitely swatch it and see how you feel! I have the same wish list problem too and I haven’t even seen Guerlain summer!

  • http://wade-ashore.blogspot.com Caise

    it looks beautiful on you!

    • Sunny

      Thanks Caise! Coral is just a pretty easy color for me to wear, and the bronzer is very very natural.

  • http://kissandmakeupsbeautyblog.wordpress.com/ Kiss & Make-up

    Such a pretty compact! I know resistance is futile, so I’ve come to terms with the fact that I will just have to cash out and get it ;-)

    P.S.: I love that touch of color in your eye make-up!

    • Sunny

      Haha yeah that was my conclusion as well. I didn’t buy it when I swatched it for the first time. I was foolish enough to think I could talk myself into not getting it. Well, I ended up spending the next few days thinking about it NONSTOP like a mad woman. I think the price is relatively small for my sanity!

  • Libby

    I’ve seen a total of three reviews for this compact and I’m dying for it. I keep telling myself I don’t need it and that I have tons of blushes and two very good bronzers that I barely use as it is…but a bronzer and blush duo speaks out to the lazy in me (which to be honest is a good 70% of me) and now I’m ready to go out and purchase this at my local counter. AHHHHHH

    It looks lovely on you, Sunny!

    • Sunny

      Haha that’s exactly my problem. Well, I certainly don’t regret this! At least check them out. The texture is what you’d expect from a luxury product. That much I can tell you! And I’m really lazy as well. I think that’s really why I don’t use a bronzer all that often!

  • http://beautyreductionista.blogspot.ca/ Liz

    You girls are driving me crazy! Ahhhh, I wouldn’t know what to pick if I were buying. I love the look of all four shades swirled together in Coral Glow, but I like Tracy’s method of mixing the pink and bronzer to create the coral tone as well. Anyway, you look great. Love the aqua lower line!

    • Sunny

      Sorry, Liz, but this really is a good one! Pink Glow is actually a coral pink, not a straight pink. It took me a while to decide between the two, but I think Coral Glow might win a tiny bit in terms of texture. Just a tiny bit though.

      • nawi

        I had a hard time choosing between the pink en coral one too but I finally decided on the coral glow and very happy that I did I agree with you sunny the pink glow could not provide me a straight pink if I wanted to and I could just get the perfect coral out of this one if I want are blend to get a softer look though I definately prefer the coral and thankfully it does not turn orange on me at all. Thanks for a wonderful post.

        • Sunny

          Hey Nawi, I’m so glad you like Coral Glow as well! I actually like Pink Glow (coral pink is good in my book as well haha) a lot, but I think Coral Glow might be just another little bit finer in texture. Heck, if I had the money I would totally have bought BOTH!

          • nawi

            ha, ha I know what you mean Sunny I wanted too much items from the bird of paradise collection otherwise I would have gon’t pink glow as well but having both could not be justified in my opnion because they are not that different on you face and than buying other products made more sense. ;-)

  • http://eyeheartit.blogspot.com Larie

    So many posts on these! You guys are killing me :P

    • Sunny

      Haha sorry Larie! We’re out to get you!

      Not really. You should swatch these two. Like seriously.

  • http://moerixstory.blogspot.fr/ moeri

    Hi!!
    Your blog is wonderful!!
    I love this Dior’s product

    Xoxo

    • Sunny

      Thank you, Moeri! It really is something I can see myself using all the time till the weather gets cold!

  • http://www.nymphette.be Marijke

    Looks so pretty!!

    • Sunny

      Thanks Marijke! It really is star of the show!

  • http://icarias.blogspot.ca Icaria

    Oh Sunny! Why? Why? Why? This is my “Beauty Envy” of the moment! That compact is so beautiful and your pictures of it are amazing! I so want it! Gorgeous on you! Notice all my exclamation points? :D

    • Sunny

      Aww sorry Helene! You should at least swatch it. I think you’ll be impressed with the quality and hopefully you’ll love it as much as I do!

      • http://icarias.blogspot.ca Icaria

        If I swatch it, I will buy it! :D

        • Sunny

          Yeah that’s what happened to me, though I can’t say I regret it ;)

  • http://softly.nothingspaces.com Carina

    Great look, Sunny! :)

    • Sunny

      Thanks, Carina!

  • http://www.beauty-reflections.com Tracy@Beauty Reflections

    You got it! YAY and looks AMAZING on you! :)

    • Sunny

      Thanks, Tracy! I like the warmth! Really can’t wait to wear it all the time :)

  • http://www.peggytimmermans.be/blog peggy timmermans

    It’s lovely! And it looks so warm aswell…i like it! Packaging as usual to Dior’s standards, amazing!

    • Sunny

      Hey Peggy, you should check these out! They’re excellent quality, exactly what you’d expect from Dior :)

  • http://www.project-swatch.com Emi at Project Swatch

    It’s so PRETTY. I am skipping for now, but still so so tempted :/

    • Sunny

      Hey Emi, if you want this you might have to act fast. I know it’s pricey, but with this quality I think it’ll sell out fast enough!

  • http://www.nailsandcupcakes.com Isabelle

    Oh this looks really pretty! And it does on you too! I won’t be getting this one as I’m not too sure this would fit me.. I need a bit of deeper color for some reason. The product itself is so pretty though and you know how much of a sucker I am for pretty products.. Ahhh!!

    • Sunny

      Thanks, Isabelle! I wouldn’t say Coral Glow is a light color. It doesn’t show up as intense in photos but that’s the problem with all blushes. You should swatch both and see how you feel about them!

  • http://www.pinklavenders.com Rainy Days & Lattes

    Omg sunny! You look so good! This duo is SO nice on you. Of course Dior is gorgeous as heck! hehe

    • Sunny

      Aww thanks, Jen! You should swatch these two and see how you feel. They have excellent quality, and the shades are adorable!

  • http://mybeautyhoard.blogspot.sg/ Jacqueline

    You got Coral Glow! Yay! Mine is on my way to me, I can’t resist it too, it looks so beautiful on you Sunny.

  • http://mylucitedreams.com Taylor

    I can’t get away from this one lately! It’s so gorgeous! I really love it on you, it brightens your complexion. Very lovely Sunny!

    • Sunny

      Aww thanks, Taylor! This one is not budget-friendly but I’m predicting it’ll be sold out soon enough. The quality is just SO lovely!

  • http://www.colormeloud.com sara_beautime

    Yay! I got the same (still trying not to get pink glow too). I think this must be the prettiest product I had this summer, after Chanel nail polish Azure of course ;-)

    • Sunny

      Hey Sara, I think this will be my go-to compact for the season. I am not big on bronzer (though I really could do with some. My face is paler than my neck/shoulders), and this compact gives me no excuse not to bronze up just a little!

  • http://www.LipstickRules.com MIchelle

    Gosh, I think I might need this now. LOL

    • Sunny

      Haha do at least swatch them, Michelle! I never used bronzer much because I didn’t find one that I love. With this compact I actually go “hmm let’s do some bronzer” nowadays!

  • Terri

    This compact is SO beautifull! I just adore the coral blush in this! But do you think the bronzer in this would be too dark for someone with a MAC nc15 (in the summer) skintone? I’m really not a big fan of the pink in the Pink Glow compact but I don’t want to be talked into buying this by the lady at my local Dior counter if it’s going to be too dark :(

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Terri, I’m about NC25 for the moment, and this bronzer is very subtle on me. I can see a difference, but it stays very natural. I don’t think it’ll look scary dark on you, but perhaps the best thing to do is having it applied at the counter and see how it looks for yourself!

  • http://twitter.com/lifesentropy Jane Candor

    How does the blush shade compare to the Edward Bess Secret Affair Blush? Maybe I can just skip out on Secret Affair if it’s close enough.

    • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

      Hey Jane, I’d say Coral Glow has a bit more orange in it than Secret Affair (which is pinker). I wouldn’t say the two are very different though. Hope this helps!

      • http://Lifesentropy.com/ Jane Candor

        Thank you! I just received my Coral Glow and I LOVE IT!

        • http://mostlysunnyblog.com/ Sunny @Mostly Sunny

          Oh yaaay so glad to hear that!
