Hourglass Ambient Lighting BLUSH: February, Kindly Hurry Up and Get Here!

Above: Behold! The beauty of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush.
In light of my love for the transformative powers of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder (my review of Dim and Diffused Light can be found HERE and my video review of the Ambient Lighting Palette can be found HERE), I am thrilled to announce the impending arrival of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush! 

This stunning "flush-meets-perfect lighting" compact blends gorgeous blush shades with the flaw-blurring, glow-inducing, perfection-enhancing properties that have made the Ambient Lighting Powders an instant cult classic.  The entire range of six shades will be launching on the Hourglass Cosmetics website on Thursday and will be available at all other Hourglass retailers in mid-to-late February!

Kindly scroll on for the official details as well as images of each of the six shades and the Bottom Line...

  1. This is so exciting!! I've grown to depend on the fabulous ambient lighting powder the past year as well and these sound brilliant, hopefully they will be just as fantastic as the powders! :D

  2. I look forward to this! I am currently in love with Illamasqua Katie (thanks to you, of course), especially because it brightens my complexion with zero shimmer (unfortunately, being a cardiologist means I need my makeup to always be shimmer free and subtle:(). I hope this doesn't have any shimmer, like diffused light. I have my eye on either the cool pink or the plum. The cool pink reminds me of katie, but I love the description of the plum: brightens my complexion...I could always use that! I have pitch black hair and fair skin and I like to embrace the fair skin, rather than warming it up with bronzers. What are your thoughts behind the plum? I've never tried a plum blush. I've always stuck to pinks, like Illamasqua Katie, Benefit PosieTint, and Dior rosyglow.

    1. Hello MG,

      Good to hear from you!! I am so glad that you love Katie...I simply cannot get enough of this blush and wish I would have tried it sooner. The fact that it is shimmer free but not overly powdery is just sublime! You're a cardiologist? How marvelous ; ) I am certain that you win for being the doctor with the BEST makeup collection ever! I think that the plum shade could be gorgeous, too...especially if tempered by Mood Light to make it soft, yet bright. Because something in my chemistry tends to make everything a bit darker (!), I will likely start with the Ethereal Glow and branch out to the plum and/or rose...can't wait!

      xoxo, have a lovely rest of the week and talk soon,

  3. Haha, you know, I actually only started my makeup collection 3 years ago. Unfortunately, with a career choice like mine, it's easy to let yourself go a little. When I realized my lack of a love life, I knew I had to start taking better care of myself to get noticed, so I turned to beauty professionals like yourself! And you'd be amazed how much a little bit of mascara and a good concealer can impact a person's confidence and self esteem. That's how I started getting into makeup. But given my line of work, it's quite inappropriate to wear heavy or shimmery makeup when you're dealing with patients suffering from various heart conditions. That's why I'm such an avid reader of your blog! Almost all of your makeup choices are in line with what I'm looking for--a natural and refined look. Even your more complex makeup routines come out looking so effortless and professional. I love how you gravitate towards nudes, as I always look for rosy nudes (my lips but better). Unfortunately, I have to skip out on products I wish I could wear like your by terry blackstar! That looks SO BEAUTIFUL on you! I'll definitely be checking out these hourglass blushes soon:)

    1. Hi MG,

      Thanks so much for sharing your beauty journey...I loved reading about it and am glad to have been a little part of it ; )

      I am glad we are on the same page with a natural and polished makeup approach...I, too, can't be too "over the top" when lecturing so I am always scouting out nudes and long-wearing options!!

      Many thanks for your kind words, MG...I am so glad this blog has allowed our path to cross!

      xoxo, talk soon and have a beautiful weekend,
