This afternoon I was super lucky to receive my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush from Space.NK.
I pre-ordered by mistake ten days ago (they leaked the blush online accidentally then quickly pulled them up until yesterday) and was told it wouldn't be dispatched until mid February.
Anyway my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Dim Infusion is here now and I couldn't be happier - so much so that I had to force myself to snap untouched images of it for review before hastily applying it to my face. It really is that beautiful and I can almost guarantee that I will purchase a few more shades in the months coming.
Obviously I have only just got my hands on it but what I can say is that Dim Infusion is a lot lighter than I anticipated - one lighter complexions this will be a great peachy coral blush but on deeper skin tones it may be more akin to a highlighter. The texture is soft and similar to the Hourglass Ambient Light Powders which I'm sure we all thought would be the case. Dim Infusion isn't overly pigmented rather it gives the skin a light flush of colour that some may find a little too subtle, the good news is that it has yet to settle into my enlarged pores and isn't overly shimmer based either.
As mentioned I have only had this in my hands a few hours but thought I'd give a quick overview of my initial thoughts for those who are sitting on the fence. In my opinion Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes are exactly what I expected - soft, similar to MAC's MSF and Mineralize Blush formulations and deliver a light tint of radiant colour to the cheeks. At £28 they aren't cheap but a little does go a long way and the quality is there.
I will post a full review in a week or so but for now the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes get a thumbs up from me. You can pre-order yours via Space.NK - link.
