I absolutely love Hourglass Cosmetics, and there is no question that they make some of my very favorite makeup. I am a huge fan of their Ambient Lighting Blushes, and continue to delight in the finish and ethereal glow that one effortlessly achieves with these beauties.
Hourglass describes their Ambient Lighting Blush as a "groundbreaking hybrid that combines the customized lighting effects of Ambient Lighting Powder with a spectrum of breathtakingly modern hues for seamless, soft-focus, and multidimensional color." I have used Ethereal Glow (reviewed here) for a year, and still reach for it all of the time. It is a gorgeous pale cool pink, and while it is just my type of color, I did want to add a darker pink blush to my collection from Hourglass. I chose Radiant Magenta, a stunning golden fuchsia blush combined with Radiant Light, because it is a lovely and infinitely wearable mid-tone pink with dimension.
Radiant Magenta is an exceptionally finely milled high quality blush that has an amazingly silky smooth texture. It neither settles into fine lines, nor does it emphasize pores, and it effortlessly glides across the skin depositing color evenly. It has beautiful pigmentation, and while the name might suggest a very dark and tricky to wear blush– it is, instead, an infinitely wearable shade. While it can be applied with intensity, it can likewise be sheered out for a very flattering natural flush of color. Once applied it faithfully remains in place all day on me.
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.
Each handmade blush is formulated using an advanced miscelare technique to create the perfect balance of pigment and powder, and no two look alike. ("Miscelare" means “to mix” in Italian.) The six shades ranging from soft coral to cool pink are a wardrobe of captivating accent lights for cheeks. They deliver a radiant, natural finish and offer buildable color to imbue the entire complexion with an otherworldly glow.
Designed to be paired with Ambient Lighting Powder, the twin formulas share the same technology that enhances the appearance of the skin. Using them together creates a multidimensional luminescence that is not achieved by using a different product. This product is free of fragrance, nano-particle, talc, and gluten. It was not tested on animals.
•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.
