Vintage Love: Dior Rose Brazilia Bronze Harmony Blush

I know, I know. What’s the point of me showing it to you when you can’t even run to get it? Well, I’m sorry, but I just have to show it to you if you haven’t seen it before. The Dior Rose Brazilia Bronze Harmony Blush was a limited edition item released for Summer 2009 and I didn’t buy it then. In fact, I got it online a couple of years ago, and I’m so glad I did.

Instead of your usual dark blue case, this came in a brownish case which I thought was refreshing. Actually, it was the prints that sucked me in. Look at it… isn’t it gorgeous? The gold you see is just an overlay so I used a brush to dust it off before using.

There is a slight floral scent to it but it doesn’t disturb my nose. Here’s a swatch on my arm (done using a brush) and you can see how flattering it is. There’s a perfect balance between pink, brown and peach, and when worn on the face, it gives off a very natural colour. It doesn’t make me look flushed because there isn’t much red, but I just look healthy.

I wore it in a few posts before, and just to show you how it looks on me, I took this photo from my recent stash shopping post. I’ve been wearing it every day for more than a month, and I am reluctant to switch it out because it just goes with everything!

See what I mean? It’s not pink, it’s not peach, it’s not brown, but it just looks flattering on. I don’t have anything like this in my stash, even in my neutral blush stash, so this is definitely unique and a keeper.

Do you have anything vintage in your collection that you just absolutely love?

    GORGEOUS!! I don’t remember this blush at all! But that was before I even noticed Dior makeup-that was my MAC phase hahaha. It’s amazing!

      Oh, I went through a MAC phase too! I think everybody does? Actually, it was more of a MAC eyeshadow phase. LOL!

    These dusty roses are really flattering, I agree!

      I’m in love with this blush!

    You look beautiful, Lily! It looks browner in your swatch than I expecting, but I think shades like that are perfect for every day. Lucky you for owning this!

    • http://www.chloeash.com Lily

      Thanks Tiffany. I bought it sight unseen but I’m so happy I did :-)

    It looks so pretty! Love the gold thread overlay, gives it a nice touch. :)

    • http://www.chloeash.com Lily

      Oh yes, the gold overspray made it look very luxurious. It took a while before I dug in, because it looked so pristine untouched.

    Oh gosh that’s pretty! Pretty to look at and pretty on you! Love the “gold stitching” on the blush and the color combination.

    • http://www.chloeash.com Lily

      I know what you mean. Too bad I had to dust off the gold before using though… it was heartbreaking. LOL!

    Super natural shade on you, Lily! I haven’t been collecting makeup for as many years so I don’t have any “vintage” pieces yet. Give me another 5 and I’m sure I’ll pull something out that has a lot of memories :)

    • http://www.chloeash.com Lily

      This one’s old for sure :-) Lucky it’s powder, because if it’s cream, I would have to chuck it out >_<

  • http://Mylucitedreams.com Taylor

    Oh my, what a tease you are Lily! The brown in this is unexpected and perfect. It really is such a gorgeous shade. Suits you beautifully!

    • http://www.chloeash.com Lily

      Thanks Taylor. I wanted to feature it because I really love it, and the photos have been sitting in my archive forever. Lol!

  • http://www.nailsandcupcakes.com Isabelle

    It is indeed a super gorgeous shade! I love it on you :) In 2009 I was still blind to the world of makeup outside the MAC store ;-)

    • http://www.chloeash.com Lily

      I haven’t even started loving makeup in 2009 and I was in Bobbi Brown and MAC phases too! I’m glad this was sold online a few years later :-)

  • http://www.glambunctious.com Kristen @ Glambunctious

    Beauts!! This is one of those no-brainer shades that just makes you look GOOD! I love the brown packaging, too – I’m not a big fan of the blue plastic. The brown looks really sophisticated and tortoise shell-ish! :) If that makes any sense…!

    • http://www.chloeash.com Lily

      Definitely a no brainer shade, and yes! I know what you mean :-) That packaging is definitely something different.

    I’m so happy I’m not the only one that purchases something pretty and then lets it sit unloved in a drawer! You should definitely continue to show this baby some love, it looks beautiful on you.

      And I can guarantee you we are not the only two. Hahahah!! And yes, I’m still wearing it very often. Whenever I’m uninspired, this one is the no-brainer blush.

    I used to love staring at this blush. Should have gotten this instead of Pink In Love which does not work on my face. I don’t think we need to censor ourselves from showing older LEs. Teaches people to get on the goods out now when they have the opportunity. LOL

    • http://www.chloeash.com Lily

      HAHAHA! You’re right about that. Missing the chance of getting a LE item means losing that chance forever! I mean, what are the chances of a brand re-releasing it? Wait…. except for MAC, of course. LOL!
