Hi Everyone. Today I’m sharing my thoughts on the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush. A couple of months ago it was my birthday and my parents gave me a gift card to Sephora and this blush was one of the items I got.
I’m going to tell you right now that I absolutely love this blush. Love it, love it, love it. Here is the exact blush I got. Below are my thoughts on why I love it and a couple of things I don’t love about it.
This is a solid, powder blush packaged in a gold case with a mirror. Love the gold packaging and it’s small enough that you can fit this in your purse if wanted.
This blush goes on smoothly and does not have any shimmer. Easy to blend. I’ve found this to be a nice long-wearing blush. I can still see the color on my cheeks after a long day at work. I have normal skin so powders tend to last on my cheeks. If you have oily skin you may need to touch up during the day. I take a blush brush and swirl it over the blush and then tap off the excess before applying to the apples of your cheeks. I applied this over my foundation and powder. Gives a great sun-kissed look. I also paired this with my Nars Laguna bronzer. They go very well together.
There are two downsides to this blush. The first being that it’s $35. That’s a lot for a blush. Not sure if I will repurchase this because of the price, but I do love this blush. Second downside is you have to be careful how much you put on. Doesn’t look very dark, but the color is very pigmented. Make sure you tap off the excess before applying.
Overall I love this blush and if you are looking to splurge then I would highly recommend getting one of these blushes. Absolutely breathtaking on the skin.
