As many of you know will know, I was pretty obsessed with the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder from the second I tried it out. So as soon as I laid eyes on the words Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush, I knew there was no question about whether or not I would be purchasing one. It was hard to pick a shade without being able to swatch them in person, but I went with Dim Infusion and boy am I glad I did!
Even though I ordered this from the early Sephora release for VIB members, as with everything, it took an agonizingly long time to reach me here in the countryside of the Dominican Republic. With everyday that went by, my excitement only grew, and I can definitely report that this one was well worth the wait!
There are six shades in the new release, each containing one of the original Ambient Lighting Powders hand mixed with a pigment, so no two blush pans are alike. Since we have “photoluminescent technology” in the mix here, it means that the blush applies beautifully and blends easily onto the skin for an amazingly natural, but gorgeous finish.
Dim Infusion is described as a “subdued coral,” but I’d say it’s more of a peachy color with a subtle sheen finish that looks natural without emphasizing your pores. As with the originals, this blush it a bit powdery, but it doesn’t translate that way on your skin — it simply melts in and sticks around for a good 7 hours. It’s quite build-able, but this particular shade is rather light, so I’m not sure it would show up on darker skin-tones.
I’m really pleased with this lovely blush and am so happy it lived up to my expectations. I’m waiting to swatch the rest in person when I visit the States in a few weeks, but I’ve also got my eye on Mood Exposure. They are currently sold out at the Hourglass website, but they’re back in stock at Sephora and they cost $35 a pop– I’m sure you can find them in stores too.
What do you think? Will you be trying one of these?
