Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush | Info and Images of a Release That Has Me Trembling In Anticipation

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush - product

I think I may have audibly gasped when I heard that Hourglass was coming out with Ambient Lighting Blush ($41 CAD/$35 US). It is truly a dream come true. The breathtaking finish of Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder fused with a blush to create what is visually one of the most stunning blush presentations I have seen and I am sure will be just as gorgeous applied as in the pan. I can not wait to try these. I have a feeling, that like the Ambient Lighting Powders, I will need them ALL!

Product claims:

• Hourglass has fused Ambient Lighting Powder, the cutting-edge collection of finishing powders, with an array of vivid cheek colors, creating a hybrid product that is unique, contemporary and revolutionary.

• Unlike traditional blush, which tends to be flat, Ambient Lighting Blush uses Photoluminescent Technology to exhibit depth and dimension.

• The airy, lightweight powders contain optically transparent particles that amplify the colors to a multi-dimensional level— effectively reinventing the way you view blush.

• The state-of-the-art formula means that its full potential is only displayed on application.

• The hand-made powders are formulated using an advanced miscelare technique—which means “to mix” in Italian— creating the perfect balance of pigment and powder, and no two look alike.

• Delivers a radiant natural finish and offers buildable color.

• Ambient Lighting Blush is designed to be paired with Ambient Lighting Powder. Using the two products together imbues the entire complexion with an otherworldly glow.

• The six shades, which range from soft coral to cool pink, are a wardrobe of captivating accent lights for cheeks.

The new Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush is launching this Thursday, January 23, 2014 on HourglassCosmetics.com and at Barneys New York, Bergdorf Goodman, Net-A-Porter.com, Sephora, and Space NK in mid-late February 2014.

      I’d catch you but I’m on my way to the floor with you!

    I’m having a flashback to last year, when part of my brain was saying “calm down, the lighting powders are permanent and you can buy the ones you want at a slower pace” and the other, louder part was screaming “OMG!!! BUY ALL THE THINGS NOW OR SOONER!!!”

      Exactly! I am so confident these are going to be AMAZING! What Ambient Lighting Powders have you ended up with so far Kate?

      • Kate MacDonald

        Thus far, I have Diffused, Dim, Luminous and Mood in full size, plus the 3-powder palette. So the only permanent shade I’m missing is Ethereal- odd for a pale girl, but I just have so many white highlighters already, surely I don’t need another? That said, Ethereal Glow looks utterly irresistible…
