Hourglass always do products that not only intrigue me and that entice me! I don’t know why but everything is just so pretty and glowy and luxe feeling. And my favourite type of product is blush (obviously) so I can’t resist them. And have slowly collected some of the Ambient Strobe Lighting Blushes! And these are my opinions!
The packaging is delightful. So luxurious, yet travel friendly and compact! So it is functional yet worth the price tag. But the thing that makes it so worth the price tag…..inside.
The formula is delicious. The pigmented swirls of blushy goodness yet have a beautiful swirl of highlighter so you get a super natural flush of colour, that is buildable yet you get a glow too. They are absolutely gorgeous! They are so finely milled and blend seamlessly. They are also almost translucent yet strongly pigmented, if that makes sense. You can see my freckles through them, but I get that gorgeous colour and glow. It is such a strange formula, and not in a bad way, but in an absolutely beautiful way.
Brilliant Nude – This is the perfect bronzer/blush hybrid. It has warmth but it was peachy nude wonderfulness thrown in the mix. So natural and glowy and goes with absolutely every single makeup look I wear. Be it a cool smokey eye, black liner look and simply blush and eyebrows. Every look. Is enhanced.
Radiant Magenta – I thought this was going to be too pale for me when I saw it but it actually looks like a perfect pink flush. I normally flush very warm red however this still doesn’t look off. The transparency with is means my natural warmth shows through but gives it that pink tone to it. It’s like a customised pink blush!
Euphoric Fusion – I absolutely love a strong blush. But want it natural. And this is probably one of my favourites! It is a beautiful warm plum shade that flatters my yellow undertone and green eyes. It compliments cool looks due to the contrast, neutral looks due to its strobe being so neutral and warm looks due to the colour. It’s stunning! And universal to all looks!
All in all I love how natural these blushes look. The transparency is such a unique formula as I can see my freckles, which gives a more natural flush with your skin showing through! But the colour is so rich and pigmented still!
I hope you enjoyed this review! Let me know if you feel tried these!
