Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush - product

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 and at Barneys New York, Bergdorf Goodman,, Sephora, and Space NK in mid-late February 2014.
