My pink radar is currently tuned into Bobbi Brown Shimmer Lip Gloss in Confetti. Loves it!
Bobbi Brown Shimmer Lip Gloss in Confetti was released with the Bobbi Brown Platinum Collection and in my opinion easily ignored since it’s a simple, sheer pink shade. But remember kids try not to judge a book my it’s cover!
The shade does look a tiny bit dull in the tube but on my lips is looks stunning. It’s a nude pink that gives me lips a full look while coloring them a natural, sweet shade of pink! Although it’s supposed to be a shimmer formula I got more of a pearl finish to the gloss which I normally don’t like but exceptions are made for such a lovely color.
The formula has quite a bit of tack and stick so it’s incredibly long wearing however I do detest the lip brush that comes with all BB glosses. Why oh why do they always split!? It drives me quite mad and makes me grumpy as hell! Aside from that one minor rant I think Confetti is worth checking out before it’s gone for good!
Great shade, loves it and Muse Approving it for purchase!
Did you haul Confetti?
Loving it as much as the Muse?

Oooo Tropic! Wanna be friends? Tropic is a gorgeous ocean teal with silver shimmer obviously Muse Approve for purchase before I even get my hands on it. Pretties!
Lovely apricot and radiant orange make up NARS Scorching Sun Shadow Duo. Mimics a burning sun dontcha know! Perfect for Summer eh?
NARS Irresistiblement Bronzing Powder is a rich terracotta to give skin the glow of a healthy tan!
NARS Lipstick in Outsider and Falaba give a kiss of Summer to lips with coral and rose shades! Likey Outsider and wants it for myself!
NARS Belize Lip Gloss offers a shade of pink mauve to lips to contrast that beautiful tan you’ll be sporting this Summer!
Can’t even begin to tell you how much I adore Adelita Nail Polish! Not much of nail girl but I can be tempted by this peachy pink shade!
Overall, I’d say NARS has a nice little line up for Summer. I’m wanting Tropic Eyeshadow, Scorching Sun Duo, and possibly Outsider Lipstick.
How about you?

Meet Dior Bronze Harmonie de Blush an absolutely essential item for Summer.
Combining equal parts blush with a beautiful bronzer and you’ll end up with the perfect shade of gorgeous! Dior Bronze Harmonie de Blush is the ideal product for people like myself who really don’t like bronzers. The powder combines the richness of bronzer but with just the right touches of peach to create a warm shade of blush that’s bound to flatter any skin tone.
The blush is housed in the new standard Dior compact which they have currently embraced for a majority of the line. This isn’t the traditional blue shade though, it’s a deep brown shade. Quite pretty and practical so you’re not worried about scratching up the palette or not wanting to use it because it’s too gorgeous.
Inside you’ll find a beautiful quilted design on the powder. The design has the Dior logo which isn’t easy rubbed off after a few times using the powder, that’s always a plus as I adore designs on my palettes. The design has equals parts blush versus bronzer so you can use the shades separate or together. I prefer using the shades together as it creates the perfect glow on my cheeks but if you prefer you can use the shades separate. The bronzer can be used to give cheeks a glow or to contour your face where as the blush part can be used to cast a peachy glow on your cheeks. The powder does have a fine shimmer overlay but it quickly rubs away after first use so you’re left with a silky satin finish.
I’m happy to report that the Dior Bronze Harmonie de Blush is available in two shades, both of which are available in the US. Traditionally, Dior releases items in two shades but the US only ever gets the one color selection. I was pleased that this time around both shades are available within the US.
So far I’ve only tried Coral Riviera but I’ll be purchasing the second shade Rose Brazilia shortly as I was deeply impressed with how well Coral Riviera performs. I think the bronzer is the ideal solution for anyone afraid of bronzers or who doesn’t like using a bronzer as it gives a perfect glow to face and cheeks. I think it also prevents those with a heavier hand, like myself, from using too much product. As I find if I use a bronzer powder and follow up with a blush I overdo the amount I’m using. When I use the Dior Bronze Harmonie de Blush I get the perfect ratio of blush and bronzer. The powder will work for just about any skin tone but I think it’s particularly a great addition to a fair or medium skin tone as it’s a good color combo that doesn’t appear too orange, too muddy, or too brown on a lighter skin tone. After I used the blush I thought it made me look like I used NARS Orgasm on my cheeks but with more pop and just the right amount of a sunny peachy glow. Loves it!
Who would love this?
- Anyone who hates bronzers!
- Anyone with a lighter skin tone that has always wanted to use a bronzer but was scared to!
- Those who want a sunny, peachy glow on their cheeks!
- Anyone who doesn’t want to use a bronzer and a blush but prefers one product that can perform both functions in one swipe of your brush.
Dior Bronze Harmonie de Blush is my ideal Summer bronzer and I absolutely love it. I look forward to trying the other shade in the collection shortly and bringing you a review of it. I can’t recommend this enough and give it my highest Muse Approval for purchase.
Overall, the blush is simplicity at it’s best and makes using bronzer a snap! I love the overall look of the product on my cheeks and feel like it’s a perfect addition to your Summer makeup wardrobe.
