Smokey Rose and Violet Look featuring Dose of Colors Melonade
Hourglass Mood Exposure is a warm mauve with a luminous finish that is limited edition and retails for $35.00 and contains 0.15 oz. Read review...
This innovative hybrid combines the qualities of Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder, the cutting-edge collection of finishing powders, with an array of vivid cheek colors. Unlike traditional blush, which tends to be flat, Ambient Lighting Blush uses photoluminescent technology to exhibit depth and dimension. Lightweight and airy in texture, these handmade powders contain optically transparent particles that amplify the colors to a multidimensional level. Formulated using an advanced “miscelare” technique—“to mix” in Italian—each blush has the perfect balance of pigment and powder, and no two look alike. Each shade in this versatile spectrum delivers a radiant natural finish and offers beautifully buildable color.

I've been really enjoying this blush lately so I thought I'd review it. I have this in the Ambient Lighting Blush palette. This is one of the more unique blushes in my stash, and recently I've found myself reaching for it to pair with the darker eye and lip looks I've been favouring. It is darker and more neutral than the rest of my mostly coral and pink stash. The shade appears as a medium-deep pink on me - it is signinficantly deeper and darker on me than the swatch above. The texture is unusual (similar to the rest of the Ambient Lighting Powders I have), I'd actually say it's somewhat powdery, though not in a bad way, as it never appears powdery on the skin. The finish is best described as a luminous matte - I find I can feel I look very "done up" in these blushes, which isn't always the look I'm going for. Overall it's a welcome addition to my stash, and a very good "winter" shade.
