Hourglass Iridescent Flash Ambient Strobe Lighting BlushHourglass Iridescent Flash Ambient Strobe Lighting Blush ($38.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a meidum-dark pink with subtle, cool undertones and lighter pink and gold shimmer. The blush had medium, buildable pigmentation to the point where I felt like I could get nearly opaque coverage with three layers. It had a smooth, silky consistency that was somewhat dusty in the pan, though it applied beautifully to the cheeks: even, diffused application that was easy to achieve and gave a luminous glow but did not accentuate my skin's natural texture. The color wore well for eight hours before fading noticeably.

The airy, lightweight blushes fuse the illuminating effects of Ambient® Strobe Lighting Powder with an array of vivid cheek colors to step up your flush. While traditional blush tends to be flat, Ambient Strobe Lighting Blush uses Photoluminescent Technology to create depth and dimension with an otherworldly glow. The hand-made powders are formulated using an advanced miscelare technique—which means to "blend" in Italian—creating the perfect balance of pigment and powder so that no two look alike. The result is a natural-looking, radiant finish with buildable color.
