8. Dior Backstage Rosy Glow Blush in 001 Pink
It’s yet another item that Kylie Jenner has managed to cause to sell out.

Highly pigmented, yet easily blendable, the blush offers a gorgeous healthy glow despite its powder formulation.
If the shade is too intimidating, dip your toe with its sister, the 004 Coral, that will leave a much more natural tint to the cheeks.
