Hourglass Mood Exposure is a very warm-toned, medium mauve with a luminous finish. It is a permanent blush that retails for $40.00 and contains 0.15 oz.
Mood Exposure is a light, rosy mauve with moderate, warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had more buildable coverage from medium with mostly opaque results achieved with three layers of product. The texture was silky-smooth, finely-milled, and a smidgen powdery in the pan but it sat beautifully on bare skin. It stayed on nicely for eight hours before showing signs of fading.

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.
