Swatches: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush

[cf-shortcode plugin=”acf” field=”affiliate_link”]

After what seems like¬†forever (even though it’s been less than a week since I ordered), I finally have some of the new Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes in hand! I’ll of course be doing a full review along with comparisons to other blushes I have on hand, but I don’t wanna make you wait too long. I was hoping to have four to show you, but for whatever reason only one of the two that I ordered from SpaceNK actually got shipped. *headscratch* Luminous Flush did make it to me, though, and from Sephora I got Mood Exposure and Radiant Magenta. But here I am rambling along… how about we just skip to the pretty pictures?

Overall I’m really excited about these (could you tell?). The finish seems very nice, and my first impression from wearing Luminous Flush today is very good – it’s soft, pigmented, blendable and the wear time is great. Hopefully the others will be just as impressive – I guess we’ll see soon!

Psst – By the way, some of these pics were up on twitter / instagram / facebook last night. Lots of times I post pictures there first, plus other stuff that doesn’t need a whole blog post. Ok, end of shameless self-promotion.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush ($35) is available as a Sephora VIB preview until 2/1, and in stores starting 2/21.

    I saw these on your Twitter and Instagram (i think) and they are just so beautiful to look at! I dont see the hulabaloo about it – like what’s so SPECIAL about it! But they are a treat to the eyes definitely! I am lusting over Dim Infusion though (Luminous Flush looks pretty too!). :)

      Lol I think a lot of the hulabaloo is about OMG NEW STUFFS! But from my first impressions of wearing these, they’re extremely nice – definitely as good as some of the more expensive ones I’ve used.

    Mood Exposure is definitely the most tempting to me but the frugal side of me is thinking I should just mix Mood Light w/ a mauve blush… Great post!
