REVIEW & SWATCHES: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush9:00 AM
Hey guys! Today I wanted to share with you a review on a blush that I've been rather smitten with lately. Hourglass, who is known especially for their fabulously glowing setting powders, came out with a line of corresponding Ambient Lighting Blushes which have the same finely milled texture and glowing appearance. Obviously this was going to be a huge cult hit from the get-go.
Um, can we just take a moment to appreciate the sexy gold marbling? Ahhh....
The shade I'm sharing today is Radiant Magenta which is a lovely hot pink with peach-gold veining in the pan. This is not just a spray-on shimmer overlay, but the actual product has the gold baked into the formula.
When it blends into the skin, the color transforms into a gorgeous rosy peach with very, very subtle gold shimmers. The shimmer is so finely dispersed that it's virtually undetectable on the cheeks but it does give the slightest natural glow.
You can see here that it looks like a matte blush but with just a little more life. The wear on me has also been really great and lasts throughout the day when other blushes would normally have faded. As far as blushes go, I'm not sure what else I'd ask for in an everyday blush!
As with Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders, the formula is quite soft and if your brush or hand are too rough you'll get a lot of dust fallout. I don't see that problem translating to application and wear, but it's worth noting if you tend to be heavy-handed.
In particular, I've found that this pairs really well with powder foundations since it really glides right over any textures
Here I wore Radiant Magenta over my Bare Minerals Original Foundation. Overall, it's been a wonderful addition to my blush collection and definitely my go-to pink blush at the moment!
