I have been meaning to post this review for quite some time now – I honestly can’t even remember when I bought it, it’s been that long. But my love for this palette hasn’t diminished at all!
The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette is a limited-edition blush palette with three shades of Ambient Lighting Blush for seamless, soft-focus, and multidimensional color. It contains 3 x 0.11 oz Cheek shades in Luminous Flush (champagne rose), Incandescent Electra (cool peach) and Mood Exposure (soft plum). Incandescent Electra is the exclusive shade, and the one I reach for the most, though I also use Luminous Flush quite regularly. Mood Exposure intimidates me a bit as it’s not a shade of blush I have worn before, but it’s still gorgeous. (update: Finally tried it, and love it!)
The powder is as soft and buttery as the Ambient Lighting Palette which I am also in love with, and they blend beautifully. A little bit goes a long way – I use them very regularly and have barely made a dent – but you want to make sure you use a delicate brush otherwise there is a lot of extra powder wasted. I use my Natural Flush Blush brush from the Sephora 24k Gold Mine brush set and find it works perfectly.
This palette is available for $67.00 CDN and you receive 0.33 oz of product – which is almost half the price as the individual blushes which are $41.00 CDN for 0.15 oz.
What shade of blush do you typically wear? Do you change shades with the season?
