Hourglass blushes

 
 
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.

    1. It's a bit of a devil when you can't find products you want in different countries. We have a hard time in Canada too with some brands.
