Hourglass Surreal Effect is a moderately warm-toned, light-medium pink with a satin finish. It is a limited edition blush that retails for $40.00 and contains 0.15 oz.
Surreal Effect is a medium pink with subtle, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had buildable pigmentation from medium to opaque, while the the texture felt smooth, silky, and picked up well with a brush without being too powdery. The blush applied evenly and blended out seamlessly on my skin. It stayed on well for eight hours on me before I noticed signs of wear.

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.
