When Hourglass sent me the product information for their new Ambient Lighting Blush line, I became so excited that I could not contain my glee. My penchant for gorgeous blush and Hourglass products is united in this very exciting new range of blushes. I selected Ethereal Glow because nothing makes my heart go pitter patter faster than cool-toned pink blushes. I am counting the days and stalking my mailman, and can hardly wait to present it to you!
Discover a new way to blush: this groundbreaking hybrid combines the customized lighting effects of ambient lighting powder with a spectrum of breathtakingly modern hues. The result is seamless, soft-focus and multidimensional color.
• Hourglass has fused Ambient Lighting Powder, the cutting-edge collection of finishing powders, with an array of vivid cheek colors, creating a hybrid product that is unique, contemporary and revolutionary.
• 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.
• The state-of-the-art formula means that its full potential is only displayed on application.
• The hand-made powders are formulated using an advanced miscelare technique—which means “to mix” in Italian— creating the perfect balance of pigment and powder, and no two look alike.
• Delivers a radiant natural finish and offers buildable color.
• Ambient Lighting Blush is designed to be paired with Ambient Lighting Powder. Using the two products together imbues the entire complexion with an otherworldly glow.
• The six shades, which range from soft coral to cool pink, are a wardrobe of captivating accent lights for cheeks.
• Free of parabens, talc, fragrance, nanoparticles and gluten. No Animal Testing.
