Over the past year or so, I've been replacing a lot of my old beauty faves with Hourglass Cosmetics. I started with their foundation, primer and concealer. I'm also a big fan of the lip treatment oil and the opaque rouge liquid lipstick is amazing. Needless to say, I'm always happy to sample their new offerings and thrilled to learn about new product launches from this brand. The latest is the Ambient Lighting Blush. The second the press package arrived, I opened it, grabbed a blush brush and proceeded to play with the Ethereal Glow color (a cool pink tone). The compact, chic as always, opens to reveal an incredibly gorgeous palette of color that looks like a work of abstract art. They are hand made! Formulated using an advanced miscelare technique—which means “to mix” in Italian—no two look alike. A swirl of the brush and a few swipes on my cheeks gave my fair complexion a soft, cool, pop of color. It's subtle and perfect for everyday wear. I would also love to try some of the deeper tones and layer them with the light Ethereal hue.
"Unlike traditional blush, which tends to be flat, Ambient Lighting Blush uses Photoluminescent Technology to exhibit depth and dimension. The airy, lightweight powders contain optically transparent particles that amplify the colors to a multi-dimensional level—effectively reinventing the way you view blush." | Available at Sephora.
