There are beauty products which receive so much love in the blogging world. Some are worth the hype and some are not. I fell into the hype of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush a couple of months ago. They are amazing and since the blush is infused with the popular ambient lighting powder, they give you the prettiest glow, not to mention they have great pigmentation.
From l to r: Radiant Magenta, Mood Exposure, Diffused Heat
My latest " acquisition" is the Mood Exposure. I was contemplating on getting this as I thought it would be too similar to my Tarte Amazonian Clay Blush in Exposed.
Hourglass Mood Exposure is more into a plum/brownish shade as Tarte Exposed is more on the pink side. As seen in the picture above, Tarte Exposed is closer to Radiant Magenta than Mood Exposure to my surprise. For more swatches and review, go here and here.
All three of the ambient lighting blushes are very pigmented. If you have fair skin, you will have to use a light hand to apply. I use my Sigma stippling brush to apply so it only pick up minimal product and deliver the prettiest pigmentation.
If you are thinking of getting the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush, I strongly recommend you do a swatch in store. Some shades are quite similar on skin but look so different in pan. These blushes are quite pricey and I am done with splurging on these. Oh well, unless they are coming out with new shades :)
