Hourglass Vivid Flush Ambient Lighting Blush ($35.00 for zero.15 oz.) is a brilliant, medium pink with hotter undertones and a luminous sheen. It appeared to have a hotter, yellower pink base with barely cooler, rosier pearl and wonderful shimmer, which gave it extra nuance, although a few of that bought misplaced a bit towards my hotter pores and skin tone as soon as blended out. It was reasonably pigmented–much less buildable (as described) because it was smooth and yielding sufficient to use with a lighter hand for a extra buildable software of shade. The consistency was silky easy, blendable, and really straightforward to work with, whereas the end was luminous and didn’t emphasize my pores and skin’s pure texture. It wore properly for eight and a half hours on me earlier than fading barely.
Neiman Marcus remains to be taking orders for the product, however it’s backordered with no ship date listed. Hourglass has a “join waitlist” possibility.

The formulation is meant to have “depth and dimension” not like conventional blush, be “lightweight and airy,” and have the “perfect balance of pigment and powder.” Hourglass says it makes use of “an advanced ‘miscelare’ technique,” which suggests to combine in Italian (per Sephora) and is how the marbled impact is achieved. The blush can be imagined to have “buildable color.” It does recall to mind the idea of plenty of baked formulation in the marketplace, however I feel the feel is softer and extra finely-milled than most.
The texture could be very smooth and delicate; it feels precisely just like the Ambient Lighting Powders. In an all-over powder, I don’t thoughts what can typically veer on powderiness, however in a blush, it may be straightforward to overload shade onto the blush after which onto the pores and skin. I want it was barely firmer or much less powdery, which might reduce waste and make it extra foolproof to use.
