Hourglass Ethereal Glow Ambient Lighting Blush ($35.00 for 0.15 oz.) is described as a “cool pink.” It’s a cool-toned, pale pink with a satin-matte finish. NARS Sex Fantasy (LE, $29.00) is darker. NARS Mistinguette (LE, $29.00) is darker, brighter. Chanel Brompton Road is less cool-toned and more sparkly but is almost as light. See comparison swatches.

I was really happy to see a distinctly cool-toned shade in the range (finally!), but with only one, I wish it was a bit darker so that it would be more versatile and also work for more skin tones.  This is a shade that is going to work best on very fair skin tones, as it is quite light. On my medium skin tone, though I tried my best, it really doesn’t show up. It might be usable as an all-over brightening powder for light-medium to medium skin tones. It only looked chalky on me when it was really heavily layered, but as a sheer wash, it seemed somewhat brightening. It had good pigmentation–even though it’s very light, it’s not sheer, which is also buildable and easy enough to blend or sheer out if you want a lighter application. The texture was very soft and silky, but it was also on the powdery side where a lot of excess powder built up along the edges of the pan and along the rim of the compact, so go easy when putting your brush to the powder. To the best I was able to tell, the powder lasted well for eight hours (it was very faint on me!).
