Part two of the Dior Cosmopolite collection is all about the cheeks: blush sticks and a gorgeous highlighter!
The packaging is very Dior.
The highlighter has the same box as the palette I showed yesterday and the blush sticks are both very pretty. A fully black stick with at the end a band with the color of the blush. Handy, and it looks good!
The Diorskin Nude has had a little make-over. Dior is now spelled in the powder, and it looks great. There is only one color, but it's one that suits every skintone. This powder is an illuminating powder, and at first I thought it would have more of a subtle illuminating effect like the Guerlain Météorites. But it has a beautiful shimmer and can be used as a highlighter too! This one is perfect if you've just started wearing highlighter, or if you prefer a shine instead of sparkles.
The brush feels very soft, and is perfect to add a glow to your cheekbones. Normally I would recommend a different brush, but this one has the perfect shape.
There are also Diorblush Cheek Sticks in this collection, and I got a pink and coral one.
Cream blushes are a bit more difficult than powder to work with, but after using it once or twice you'll get the hang of it.
The first time I swatched the blushes was on this photo, and I was very surprised about how pigmented they are. They look like they will never blend out, but they do. And very easily! When you blend them they feel more powdery, and you can choose any intensity you like. Just a little bit, like the first swatch: a healthy pink blush on the cheeks. Or you can use more product for a higher intensity like the coral (blended) swatch.
Dior - Diorblush Cheek Stick (€36)

I like the cheek sticks, but the highlighter stole my heart. I'm obsessed with highlighters, so I'm very happy to add this one to the collection!
Do you prefer cream or powder blushes?
