Hourglass Ambient Lighting blush

A beautiful blusher which gives a reflective light effect to make it look as if your skin is lit up.
I've just bought my second Ambient Lighting blusher from Hourglass and as it's such a wonderful product, I thought I would tell you about it.
My first experience with this blush was a couple of years ago when I bought a palette of three. I found I was mainly using one shade, as you tend to do with palettes, so now that my favourite shade is virtually all gone, I've just bought it in a single compact (£39 from Space NK or John Lewis).

This blusher really does give a lovely ambient lighting effect, thanks to Hourglass's Photoluminescent Technology which adds depth and dimension. The hand-made powders are formulated using an advanced miscelare technique—which means “to mix” in Italian—creating the perfect balance of pigment and powder, and no two look alike.
The perfect blusher for the over 40 woman: Hourglass Ambient Lighting blush

I used to wear only cream blusher, which is normally more flattering to older complexions. But this powder is so fine it doesn't look heavy or "Aunt Sally" like, as so many powder blushers do.

The shades are a bit confusing so I recommend you buy in person, after trying them out. The shades are:
- Diffused Heat: a vibrant poppy blush combined with Diffused Light for a subtle halo effect.
- Dim Infusion: a subdued coral blush fused with Dim Light to add warmth.
- Ethereal Glow: a cool pink blush fused with Ethereal Light for a moonlit luminosity.
- Luminous Flush: a champagne rose blush fused with Luminous Light to evoke a candlelit glimmer.
- Mood Exposure: a soft plum blush fused with Mood Light to brighten the complexion.
- Radiant Magenta: a golden fuchsia blush combined with Radiant Light for a summer glow.
- Incandescent Electra: a cool peach blush blended with Incandescent Light for a celestial glow

Hourglass also has a range of Ambient Lighting powders. 

I also bought Hourglass's Mechanical Gel Eyeliner, and I'll be reviewing that shortly.

  1. This looks beautiful, you can see the quality of it from here. Sounds great, I must look out for some to try :) Thanks for sharing at the weekend blog hop.

    1. John Lewis probably best bet to see it in person. Have a lovely weekend

  2. A great sounding blusher with plenty of choice, worth a look I think. x Jacqui

    1. Well worth the price! Enjoy what's left of the weekend.

  3. I haven't tried this Gail. I like that it's not too heavy. Highligting is so needed on our mature skins I think, so long as it's not too sparkly xx
