The Best Dior Blush Dupes You Can Find On A Budget

In case you've been under a rock, the internet was nearly broken for good when Dior reformulated its once-discontinued Rosy Glow line of pH-adjusting ultra-fine powder blushes in 2020. The reformulated blush originally came in just two shades, each of which is capable of tweaking its hue slightly in response to your skin's pH and moisture levels. Since its debut, the blush has only continued its streak as a viral beauty sensation on TikTok. Unboxing videos like those posted by Danielle Marcan have received millions of views on the platform. Of course, since Dior is a luxury designer, its blushes sell for the luxurious price of $40 each.


If you're a beauty-oriented babe on a budget, it's easy to end up feeling a little discouraged when a popular product is a little out of your price range. There's no need to worry, however. We've tracked down dupes for each of Dior's Rosy Glow shades, including the four latest inclusive shades added to the line during the summer of 2023. In a hurry? Get started with Flower Powder Blush in Wild Rose for $11.49 or Maybelline Fit Me Blush in Peach for $7.60.

Dior Rosy Glow original 001 Pink and 004 Coral dupes

Dior's original two Rosy Glow blush shades are an ultra-cool-toned light to medium pink known as 001 Pink and a warmer-toned light to medium coral called 004 Coral. Even though the blush's formula boasts the ability to slightly adjust based on your skin's pH levels, it still very much reflects the original shade. Therefore, it's essential to still select the shade that is right for you based on your skin tone.


If 001 Pink is what you're after, consider giving Poppi silky matte blush a try in the shade Pretty in Pink. The color is nearly identical, and the product offers a similar ultra-fine powder formula that melts into your skin for just $11.99. If a light to medium warm-toned flush like 004 Coral is what you're after, take a look at L'Oréal Paris Cosmetics Paradise Enchanted in the shade Just Curious. The creamy, blendable powder offers a pigmented pop of color and a delicious fruity scent for only $9.50. 

Dior Rosy Glow 006 Berry and 012 Rosewood dupes

Since the original two reformulated shades of Rosy Glow blush only offered compatible shades for those who happen to have light to medium skin colors, the line was expanded three years later to provide more inclusive options for other skin tones. Two of those options include 006 Berry, a deep cool-toned plum, and 012 Rosewood, a medium to dark warm-toned pink.


An excellent choice for those looking to replicate the deep cool tones of 006 Berry is Palladio Matte Blush in the shade Velvetine. The smooth, buttery powder is infused with botanical ingredients like chamomile, apricot, aloe, ginkgo biloba, and ginseng to keep your cheeks aglow all day or night. If you're more of a fan of warm pinky Rosewood (and massive bargains), try silky smooth Wet n Wild Icon Blush in the shade Bed of Roses for the shockingly low price of just $3.28. 

Dior Rosy Glow 015 Cherry and 020 Mahogany dupes

The other two shades in Dior's expanded range are 015 Cherry, a deep true red, and 020 Mahogany, a rich, warm-toned brown. If 015 Cherry is what your heart desires, check out Covergirl Trueblend So Flushed High Pigment Blush in the sizzling red hot shade Hot & Frenzy for $5.49 or, if you prefer a talc and paraben-free formula, Pure Ziva Pressed Cheek Color Powder in Grenadine Coral for $13.99.


For those who seek a warm chocolatey shade like 020 Mahogany that won't break the bank, try Burt's Bees 100% Natural Origin Blush with Vitamin E in the warm shade of Toasted Cinnamon or — if you'd prefer to support a smaller brand, take a look at Beauty Junkees Powder Blush in the shade Whipped Mocha. No matter which Dior shade you're lusting after, there's a dupe available, and in many cases, you could even try two or three dupe shades for less than the price of one name-brand splurge. 

Honorable pH-adjusting blush mentions

The primary draw of the Dior Rosy Glow blushes seems to be their vibrant colors and super blendable powder texture. If you're more interested in the pH-adjusting aspect of the product, however, there are many similarly customizable blushes on the market. Most of them — including Viola House Liquid Color Changing Blush for $4.99 — start out as a clear liquid or gel and then change into a somewhat unique shade based on your skin's pH and moisture levels.


Tarte does offer its Juicy Blush powder formula in a pH-shifting variety for a slightly lower price than Dior ($30). The way color-changing cosmetics work is all thanks to a dye known as Red 27. The additive appears clear until it comes into contact with your skin's moisture, at which point it will activate and become a slightly different pinkish-red hue based on your individual pH level. Depending on whether other pigments were added to the product, you'll end up with this bright Red 27 hue alone or a mixed version as the colored Dior blushes provide.
