This was my first hourglass blush. And oh my goodness is it PIGMENTED!! You need such little product (literally dust) for the blush to be prominent on your cheeks. It has a little bit of fine glitter that didn't emphasise my pores or feel too much with my highlighter on. I know it's a little bit on the expensive end for most people (including myself) but I will never hit the pan on this!! It's just SO pigmented... but it lasts for 6-7 hours on me.
