When Hourglass creates new products the beauty world responds with eager anticipation, and it would be an understatement to suggest that this is precisely what happened when they launched their new Ambient Lighting Blushes. From the moment that I saw the press release I knew that Ethereal Glow was the one for me. My penchant for light blue-based pink blush coupled with my light to medium toned cool complexion made this beauty a natural fit.
According to Hourglass,
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 a natural radiant finish with seamless, soft-focus and buildable color.
•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 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.
•The cutting-edge formula means that its full potential is only displayed on application.
Ethereal Glow is an exceptionally finely milled high quality blush that has an amazingly silky smooth texture. It has beautiful pigmentation, and while it is light it is not inherently sheer. Once applied it faithfully remains in place all day on me.
Paraben, talc, fragrance, nano-particle, gluten and cruelty free.
How gorgeous is this?!
To contextualize scale I have compared Ethereal Glow to an Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder.
You can customize your color by using more or less of the Ethereal Light Powder. In this picture I picked up a bit more of the Ethereal Light marbling in order to achieve a more radiant effect.
In this picture I picked up more of the pink pigment and less of the Ethereal Light in order to intensify the pink.
