Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush is one of my most used blush formulas for almost a decade. The reason I am dedicating this post just this blush, that is not even new to me, is that there is a new shade added to the collection. I thought this is the right time to share the shades I love in my everyday routine along with the newest addition. The Ambient Powers are handmade and are formulated using an advanced miscelare technique—which means “to mix” in Italian—creating the perfect balance of pigment and powder. Therefore, no two looks alike.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush is available in 8 shades at the time this post is written. For me, I have the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Volume 3 that has few blush shades that I use. Apart from that palette, I love 2 shades, described below, that are my go-to.
There is one new shade that I have swatched and described below:
- At Night (new) – It is a Brick Red shade, warm red that looks radiant and vibrant, like a fireside gleam. In it, brick red blkush is combined with Raidant Light.
- Diffused Heat – It is a vibrant poppy shade which is a coral pinkish shade and looks so pretty. In it, the vibrant poppy blush is combined with Diffused Light Ambient powder for a subtle halo effect.
- Radiant Magenta – It is a golden fuchsia shade, a beautiul fresh radiant pink with very fine subtle shimmer, perfect for summer glow. In it, golden fuchsia blush is combined with Radiant Light.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush is a hybrid of customized lighting effects of Ambient Lighting Powders with a spectrum of pigments. Thus, creating a beautiful soft-focus and multi-dimensional effect. For me, I feel it looks perfect on the skin, giving the feel of radiant color, no matter from where the light hits the surface of the skin. It creates a soft-focus that looks natural and sublime. The formula is very lightweight and smooth. It is pigmented and once the brush is swirled over the pattern, the radiance and pigment both blend in to create a stunning effect on the skin. The formula blends easily and is buildable per the required intensity.
Once applied, it does not even feel like I am wearing it. Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush is airy, blends in effortlessly, and looks very natural. The longevity, on my medium skin that is combination, is very impressive. It stays put on for over 7 hours on my skin. Whenever I am using this blush, I do not feel the need of using a highlighter. Be it a no-makeup makeup everyday look or for a special occasion, it is my go-to. In addition, the shades are universally flattering too. Overall, this blush/highlighter hybrid gives the most beautiful natural radiant flush of color. In addition, it blurs the imperfections, makes the skin look even, smooth, and radiant.
