Hourglass Ambient Blush SWATCHES and REVIEW!

It's no secret I'm a bit obsessed with the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders... When I heard they were releasing 6 shades of Ambient Blush- an entirely new product that mixes beautiful and bright shades of blush with a swirl of the Ambient Lighting Powders- I got super excited, as you can probably imagine.
*To see swatches and my thoughts on the regular Ambient Lighting Powders, check out the posts here and here.

Now that they are readily available and have released fully at Sephora.com, I wanted to share these new pretties with you all!  They apply so smoothly and really do create sort of a soft focus, 3D effect on the skin, rather than a flat finish.  I could go on and on, but I'll let the photos speak for themselves!

Here's what the packaging looks like. They're about half the size of the Ambient Lighting Powders.

Each shade has a unique "swirl".   No two are alike...

Ambient Lighting Blush, $35 each (.15 oz)
available now at sephora.com

Diffused Heat
"Vibrant poppy blush combined with Diffused Light for a subtle halo effect"

Dim Infusion
"Subdued coral blush fused with Dim Light to add warmth"

Ethereal Glow
"Cool pink blush fused with Ethereal Light for a moonlit luminosity"

Luminous Flush
"Champagne rose blush fused with Luminous Light to evoke a candlelit glimmer"

Mood Exposure
"Soft plum blush fused with Mood Light to brighten the complexion"

Radiant Magenta
"Golden fuchsia blush combined with Radiant Light for a summer glow"

So what do you guys think of these? Will you be picking them up? What shade stands out most to you??

  1. These are so beautiful! I cannot wait to get my hands on them! Thanks for another awesome review!

  2. Super cute... Diffused Heat or Luminous Flash must be mine....

  3. They look so beautiful, i've never tried this brand!!!!!


  4. I love the look of these. I love blusher, its one of my favourite makeup products! More reason to get my hands on one of these!


  5. Yay for new video! These colours look so yummy! Reminded me of cakes and now is making me hungry!!

  6. They are all so lovely! I think I like the radiant flush based on the swatch. Thanks for the video and review!

    Am wondering, if you could only choose one setting powder, to build a beginning makeup collection, would you get a Mac Mineralize Skinfinish Natural, a Nars setting powder, or one of the Hourglass Ambient powders? Loaded question I think but I've seen you use all of them and simply can't decide which one to get! Thanks for any advice you may have!

  7. PS Yes to the purse video! It looks lovely!!

  8. I have a huge weakness for blush, so I'd love to try any of these- especially the Luminous Flush.

  10. Radiant Magenta! How pretty!


  11. The shades are all gorgeous. I really wish Sephora Malaysia will bring in Hourglass. :-(

  12. Dim infusion looks amazing on you! It's also the one I have my eye on with summer coming up (well, I'm deluding myself some, but I want summer. Lol)

  13. diffused heat and radiant magenta look great! I had no clue that they were infused with the ambient lighting powders, but the names make a lot of sense now that I know!

  14. I just ordered mood exposure. I can't wait to try it. I love love 2 of my ambient powders. Total genius.

  18. Love the bag. I am a purse freak myself. My collection is an embarassment! No judgement here. :) I got a new CC for spring. So, I would love to see a video of your latest wonderful addition. I just picked up two of the blushes too. Awaiting their arrival. You did a great job describing them. Best...

  19. These blushes look really nice and I would want to get one if the weren't so darn expensive. Are they really worth the huge price tag?

  20. really I love the look of these. I love blusher, its one of my favourite makeup products! More reason to get my hands on one of these!

  21. I really like all the colors. I will definitely grab one of these. This is one of my favorite makeup product.

  25. I have Dim Infusion and it is by far my favourite! I love peachy shades :)

  26. i cant decide if i should get one!

  27. These blushes are so pretty! I've been debating over whether or not to pick one up since they were released, but my mind is definitely made up now..! I just can't decide between Dim Infusion or Ethereal Glow! :) x
