Hourglass Sublime Flush is a very warm-toned, light pink with a luminous finish. It is a permanent blush that retails for $40.00 and contains 0.15 oz.
Hourglass Sublime Flush Ambient Lighting Blush ($40.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a medium pink with warmer undertones and cooler, ultra-fine lavender pearl that gave it a luminous finish once applied and blended out on my skin. The texture was incredibly smooth to the touch, finely-milled and silky without being overly powdery.
It had semi-opaque pigmentation in a single layer, which could easily be built up to full coverage if desired or used with a lighter hand to dial down coverage initially. This shade was previously available in the Ghost palette, but it is now available as a single. The color stayed on well for eight and a half 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.
