Yes, guilty as charged. I got another Hourglass Ambient Blush after my first purchase in the shade Radiant Magenta(see my review). I really enjoy the formula of this blush. It is a mixture of their famous ambient lighting powder with a blush. So when you apply the blush, it is like applying 2 products and give the pretties glow.
my little Sephora haul
One advantage of being a Sephora VIB rouge is it is free shipping with each order. They have new promo so very often that I could place multiple orders just to get the extra goodies.

Marc Jacobs Beauty Lash Lifter
What a great set of goodies I received. Talk about luxury. I have never tried Givenchy lipstick and this shade is such a pretty coral reddish shade. I got the Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer deluxe sample in another offer and such a nice primer. Excited to try the Marc Jacobs lash lifter. I guess this is like a primer for mascara.
Back to my new blush. I picked Diffused Heat as it is a pretty coral. There are 6 shades available and some are more pigmented than others and with my NC30 skin tone, it is either this or Mood Exposure. From what I see the swatches online, Mood Exposure is so pretty too but it looks like Tarte's Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed so Diffused Heat it is.
Just look at it, Isn't it so gorgeous? It is a vibrant poppy shade infused with Diffused light powder which is a soft warm yellow powder.
The swatch is incredibly pigmented and smooth. For some reason, it feels so different with Radiant Magenta. This one is just so smooth, like butter.
It also feels so much more pigmented than Radiant Magenta. With Radiant Magenta, I usually have to apply a couple of layers to build up to the shade I want. Diffused heat is so pigmented and vibrant that only one swirl in the pan and apply, that's it. So I will have to use a light hand when applying.
I think I have a new favorite. This shade is going to be so perfect for spring and summer.
