That's an excellent blush, especially the colour! It's too bad I can't find anymore, I guess I used it so long that it got out of market lol. This colour fits me perfectly, I'm pale/fair and peachy/pink/brown blush colours don't work on me. I hope to find something similar to this colour.

As I stood in my bathroom this morning, trying to load my brush from the tiny remnants left in the corners of the pan, I thought "it's time i gave this stuff a positive review!" I have a very pale, kind of peachy complexion, where pink blushes look stupid on me, browns are too dark and make me look dirty, and peachy orange colours don't really look natural. This seems to blend all three into the perfect colour. I cannot describe how much I love this blush!
it's the only thing in the world that adds a touch of natural looking colour, and at the same time creates cheekbones where - trust me - there are no cheekbones! On that note, I'm about to see if I can track down a new one for a reasonable price!
update: I've had no luck finding this! it's been discontinued and replaced by some horrible shimmery concoction! I have found a dupe though - MAC Pinch Me is perhaps a little pinker, but very close!

I don't own many blushes, but this one is my go-to blush. It works with almost every look I try to pull whether it's a smokey eye or a girly girl look. It's not too overbearing when you're trying to keep your face nude-looking, but it adds just enough color for that natural glow! I also like how it's matte. That's why it's versatile.
I don't find this blush anything special though. For one, the color isn't unique, and for the price, it's not worth it. I got mine as a gift. I'm gonna look around for dupes!
Word of advice: although it's called "contour", I don't recommend contouring your face with it.

Well, I think this is probably a beautiful color on the right skin tone. I have medium olive skin so I'm a bit of a tweener in that I can pull off some darker shades and some lighter shades of color. Anyway, this one went on okay (a bit reddish in color that made me looked flushed) but over a few hours turned darker and muddier on me. It's not a bad blush, in fact I think Dior has exceptional blushes, it's just not the color for me. Could be a great fall blush for the right person. Packaging is luxurious and hardy, but cumbersome with the mirror and silly teensy brush it comes with.

I would call this a "terracotta". I am light/medium golden and use this over my Chanel Sable d'Or bronzer for a pop of color with a skunk brush. It is densely pigmented and such a strong color that just picking up a tiny amount is all it takes. It isn't all glittery, pearly or shimmery so it's actually quite wearable as long as it's blended well. I don't know why it's named "Contour"...ugh! I'd hate to think anyone would use it to contour the cheek a la *80's-shoulderpad- bighair * days.

This is a very striking blush on my fair skin. I did not give the full 5 stars because it is really too strong for me, and I have to apply with an extremely light hand to keep from looking orange. The color is a deep apricot, can make cheek bones pop.

I had this as a GWP when i got CD moisturizer, that i will review later on. I didn't know that i had this GWP and hence brought another full size one at around $56 and hence now end up with 2 contour blush instead. I really regret but anyway, just incase it discontinue or something, so this is the extra one that im going to keep by the way. I hope i get to use it after the GWP finish or else it would be a waste of money. Back to the blush, it seem ok for me. It provide just enough of colour for me. It just didn't WOW me like it did for the others reviewer. Im not so sure if i would repurchase but since i had got the full size with me and i haven't start using the full size, think im going to have it for sometime, probably won't repurchase. Nothing fanciful really. It just a plain brown blush to me and on me. It just fail to do it magic on me. What a pity.

What a gorgeous little blush! My friend gave a GWP size of this blush to me because it doesn't really show up on her NC 40 complexion. However, this is a nice neutral peachy brown on me. It's very versatile as it goes well with brown,peach, and pink lipsticks. I was never able to wear a brown-based blush since I have rosy cheeks and brown usually looks muddy on me, but Dior Contour is different. Like the name suggest it can be use to contour your cheeks since it's not very pigmented and can be used as base colour. The texture is super silky and non-drying (much better than MAC in this department). I will definitely repurchase once I run out.

my boss gave me this teeny sample size as she got it in a GWP. sheís a blue eyed blonde and found it too much for her. itís fairly dark in the palette, sort of berry brown red, matte (iím getting too old for sparkly cheeks) but not deathly so. on me (dk brwn eyes, brunette, light olive skin) this is a great shade, and is surprisingly more versatile than i first thought. i donít use it when iím aiming for a ďhealthy flushĒ look, i have other more natural colours for that. this shade is good for when i want to be more polished, dramatic, glamourous and serious about my cheekbones *lol* you can create some major guy bourdin-look 70s cheeks! and i think you could get that sexy look other reviewers have mentioned -- iíll have to try it! but this morning for work i did a simple neutral eye, with fine black liner and loads of mascara, a soft warm pink lip, and this with a light hand, and itís a good balance to the eyes. basically, itís not a colour i would normally choose, but i really like it and iíve now got more options in my blush department.

I received this blush as part of a GWP. I haven't been using any other since. I have very pale sensitive/combi/somewhat acne prone skin, and this doesn't make my skin break out. The color is brown/red and when on my cheeks remains somewhat the same and gives my cheeks a natural blush. I've been using the sample for nearly a yesr now, so will have to purchase a full-size soon. The retail price i think, is a little steep, but well worth the quality of the product. Thumbs up!

I've been wanting to try this product for a long time because I've heard it is a great product.
Like others have said, you have to reapply it sometimes, but overall I loved the color and the way it shaped my face.

There are many winner points in this product. I have been wanting to try this for a very long time. Others said this is silky and matte and not extremely pigmented so that it would allow you to build the intensity as wanted. It is true. But the flaws of the product in my opinion are 1) the shape of the container. I really prefer round compacts for blusher. And 2) It does not stay on very long time. I had same issues with many other blushers that are silky and sheer like Diorblush like Clarins Blush Douceur for example.
Also this shade is a little bit too peachy for my skintone. It gives my PPP skin more like a peachy bronzer effect. However there are some very great shades to choose from this color range. It is extremely natural and flattering range of shades! Especially recommended for those who are just starting out with blushers. This is a pretty foolproof product.

I was so awed by how this blush transformed me from blah to wow that i have to write a review on it. I bought a GWP size off the net and when it arrived I looked at it and went, "What's the big deal?" Then, when i swiped some Contour on my cheeks, I was totally blown away by how good it looked! A great brown based pink to be used at anytime of the day for all ocassions! :) Will definitely buy the full size when this runs out.

This is an awesome, and versitile blush that suits many skintones. It can create a variety of looks. It's brown-toned, but you can layer it with different shades or different colors of m/u to change the appearance of the color. You can apply it as a light wash for a sheer, flushed look, or use it with a dense contour brush to add definition to the cheeks. I like layering a bit of this over NARS Orgasm blush for a 'romp in the hay' flush.

I would never have tried this blush if the SA hadn't swiped some on my cheeks when I was trying on lipsticks. I went from washed out to Wow . The color can look corally when I wear it with coral lips, and it looks pinkish with ppinks. This blush lasts allday and all night. does not change color or smudge, or fade. I was used to useing sheertones, MAC, this is a whole-lotta color. expensive, but, great.
