Hello Beauty Friends!
I could not resist the online excitement around getting these Hourglass Ambient Lighting blushes! Magical words to a beauty blogger "limited edition" or "limited quantities". Nothing brings more excitement and urge to shop like these words for a makeup addict - that is for sure!
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Luminous Flush
$41 Cdn at Sephora
Sephora describes this shade as a "champagne rose". ok? Not sure what that means exactly - but I would describe it as a lovely mid-pink that is very flattering. It is incredibly easy to apply - virtually blends itself! That is the first thing I noticed about it. No matter which brush I used or how I put it on - or where - it just blended seamlessly. What a beautiful finish this leaves on your skin! I was smitten.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Diffused Heat
$41 Cdn from Sephora
Sephora describes this as a vibrant poppy shade. I would say it is a much bolder pink, darker in tone, leaning towards reddish coral. It is much bolder on the cheek than luminous flush but equally as flattering. It has a little bit more shimmer as well, but is still very wearable. I thought it blended very well. A little more powder "kick up" than other blushes I use but not a big problem really. I know that you have to be very careful with these guys - if you drop them they could shatter - as they are hand made and quite fragile.
These are VERY expensive for blushes, absolutely. But I've never used a blush like the Luminous Flush. It is foolproof - truly.
