After two weeks of wearing and of course testing the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Dim Infusion I'm ready to share my thoughts on the formula and if I would purchase another shade or not.
Spoiler alert I am more than a little enamoured...
Truthfully I'm not a huge fan of the style of packaging that the majority of Hourglass products come presented within - the plastic feels cheap and rather flimsy. Far from idea considering the blush costs close to £30. I do hasten to add that although it doesn't feel robust I have yet to experience a shattered Hourglass powder of any type despite my clumsiness. What I do like is that every Hourglass face product does contain a large mirror inside which is wonderful for on the go applications or for a general glimpse of your make-up throughout the day.
At the moment there are six shades in total within the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes line. I'm pretty certain that if the blushes do well more colour ways will be added in time. Dim Infusion is a lot lighter than I anticipated - on lighter complexions this will be a great peachy coral blush but on deeper skin tones it may be more akin to a highlighter. I must stress that the shade is much softer and less orange toned in person - I'm afraid I simply can not get it to show true to life on camera. The texture is soft and similar to the Hourglass Ambient Light Powders which I'm sure we all assumed 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. 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 - a blush come highlighter in one quick step. The only real grumble I have is that the shades within the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush are a little samey, there is no real effort of diversity and sadly those with a deep skin tone could be left disappointed with the colour pay off.
