Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Radiant Magenta Review

By: Amanda V.

I cannot begin to explain how incredible the Ambient Lighting Blush is This Powder Blush feels as light as air and blends like a dream when swiped onto the skin. With a single swipe I am glowing like a goddess. The complimentary glimmering golden sheen that is swirled into the bright pink shade provides a beautiful whimsical flush that I don’t think I’ve found with any other cheek product. 

Personally, I usually go for a Peach or a Nude/Neutral shade when it comes to my cheeks and I don’t really like to steer out of my comfort zone. When I first saw that it said “MAGENTA”, the first thought I had was “Yikes this might be a bit too colorful and bright for my taste” but I thought wrong. It had the perfect pop of color blended with the perfect amount of highlight so you get a perfectly luminous swirl of cotton candy pink. It was love at first swipe. 

I have Dry/Combo/Sensitive skin and I tend to get dry patches on my cheeks. With that being said, this blush doesn’t flake throughout the day on my patches nor does it emphasize them as well as affect the sensitivity of my skin. I set my face on the daily with Hourglass Dim Light Powder and that product, mixed with this blush will give your skin perfect ethereal glow for the last couple weeks of Summer and transitioning into the Fall. 

The compliments I’ve been getting in the past few days of consistently wearing this have been endless. This product may be on the pricier side for a single blush ($38) but it is honestly worth it and it can be a luxurious little treat with it's simplistically chic packaging.
