Hourglass Luminous Flush Ambient Lighting Blush

Hourglass Luminous Flush Ambient Lighting Blush ($35.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “champagne rose.” It’s a pink-tinged coral with warm undertones and a golden shimmer-sheen finish. Depending on the lighting, it looked pinker and less pink/more true coral. I could walk into one room and see the pink tones, and then walk into another room and lose them almost entirely. I think if you have stronger pink undertones (compared to my yellow), it may stay pinker-toned on you, but the undertone is definitely warm. Clinique Peach Pop (02) (P, $21.00) is darker. Tarina Tarantino Feather (P, $25.00) is lighter. Tarte Crave (LE, $26.00) is darker, pinker. NARS Day Dream (LE, $29.00) is slightly darker. Too Faced Melt Into Spring (LE) is darker, less shimmery. Physicians Formula Warm (P, $11.99) is similar. MAC Supercontinental (LE, $21.00) is warmer. See comparison swatches. This shade seems to fall in-between Diffused Heat and Radiant Magenta; they’re not dupes when swatched, but on, they look more similar than dissimilar.

Sneak Peek: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes (Part 2)

My order of Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes arrived today! I’ll be testing the three I didn’t have today and tomorrow. I ordered Ethereal Glow directly through Hourglass, so that’s not here yet… So far, it seems like these run very warm, and I would definitely have loved to see something cooler-toned somewhere (at least a pink or plum). Full reviews to come – I would appreciate it greatly if you would hold questions until I’ve written the reviews. Thank you!

Round-up: Clinique Cheek Pop Blush Reviews

With Cheek Pop Blush, Clinique hit a home run. Every single shade has been high quality, richly pigmented, and effortlessly blendable. They’re all fantastic, and I can recommend them each equally–it’s a matter of your preference on color, but you can’t go wrong formula-wise. It’s not often that a brand puts out a new formula that’s as impressive as this offering but to be consistent across the shades? so infrequent.
