Dauphine Pink is a soft baby pink with shimmer. Unlike some of Chanel's varnishes with subtle shimmer, you can see the flecks of shimmer very well both indoor and outdoor with Dauphine Pink.
I was initially drawn to this color because of the shimmer and the soft pink hue. The finish is glossy and slightly milky.
Dauphine Pink's shimmer sparkles in bright sunlight as shown below. I only applied 2 coats so the nail line is still visible. In order to get full opacity, you will need 3 coats. I had no issues with Dior's special tapered brush but it does need some getting used to if you've never used it before.
I'm not sure if it's because I'm too tanned in the summer, but Dauphine Pink doesn't seem to be very flattering on me. I think I will try this again in the winter, where the contrast between my hand and the shade isn't as glaring.

During my photography session, our neighborhood cat Nicey stopped by to see what I had in store.
Seeing how he has impeccable taste in fashion/cosmetics, I had to get his opinion on Dauphine Pink. And yes, he does look that clean and sharp everyday. He loves to pamper himself!
Nicey sniffed, poked, and prodded Dauphine Pink for a quick second before nodding in agreement with me. He meowed his disapproval of the shade and walked away. Maybe he'll like it later in the winter? I'm not sure. I guess we'll just have to wait and see.
Overall, Dauphine Pink is a beautiful baby pink color with noticeable shimmer that will look beautiful on light skin tone ladies. This shade reminds me of a warmer version of Chanel's Mica Rose.
What are your thoughts on Rose Dauphine? Do you agree with Nicey?
