When it comes to social media, TikTok is the place to be—especially if you’re a beauty aficionado. From lash-enhancing mascaras to skin-like foundations, TikTok has thrown old and new favorites into the viral corners of the internet, and the latest is Dior’s Backstage Rosy Glow Blush.

“This blush apparently gives everyone their own customized glow depending on their pH level,” says beauty influencer Anahitaxo in her TikTok video. She then gives a full review of the product and shows off how well it adjusts to her skin as it creates a flattering pink hue. She also mentions that when you first apply the blush onto your skin, you won’t see much pigment, but the product slowly turns rosy on your cheeks after a few seconds.

Here’s how it works: Dior reinvented its blush formula, which is infused with a unique color reviver technology. This helps the blush adapt to the temperature and moisture level of your skin to create a custom rosy effect.

So if you’re looking for a pink-toned blush that won’t look too bright or clown-like, this is a great pick to reach for. It comes in two universal vibrant shades, pink and coral. The formula will give off a natural, healthy glow, and each shade is super blendable, making it easy to achieve different levels of intensity.

And since blush has always been my go-to makeup product, I had to try this out for myself. After setting my contour, I dipped my favorite Real Techniques Blush Brush into the powder and swiped it onto the apples of my cheeks. It has a butter-soft texture that glides onto the skin with ease.

I must admit, I felt a bit underwhelmed at first—I didn’t see much color. However, after a few moments, the blush started transforming into a brighter, more intense pink hue on my cheeks. (Dior even notes on its website that you should wait a few moments for the true shade to be revealed.)

At $37, the price is on the higher end, but this blush does exactly what it promises and helps tie my entire makeup look together. I fell in love with how well the color enhanced my complexion by giving it a warm, bright boost—perfect for my skin tone.
