Review for: Mood Exposure, Luminous Flush more...
I bought two of these blushes in the mini sizes and I must say, I they do not disappoint. They provide a soft, natural flush that makes for an amazing blush. These may seem a bit on the pricey side, but I feel that they are definitely worth it. I read somewhere that these are made in Italy and with the marbling, no two blushes are exactly the same. Like the bronzers, these are a combination of the ambient lighting powder (for radiance) and pigment (for color). Mood exposure is a combination of mood light and a rosy plum shade. I think this is the most natural looking on me and perfect for fall/cooler months. The shimmer in this one isn't really noticeable on the skin and it provides a really soft, natural sheen. Luminous Flush is a combination of the luminous light powder and a "champagne" rose. This is perfect for spring summer. I also found that the shimmer in this is not noticeable on the skin. Overall, I really enjoy these blushes and you can't beat Hourglass packaging. They are quite expensive so I would recommend trying out the minis if you are interested before splurging on the full size product.

Review for: Mood Exposure, Ethereal Glow, Luminous Flush more...
If I had to stick to purchasing only one brand of blushes for the rest of my life, it would have to be Hourglass Cosmetics. Their Ambient Lighting blushes and powders are truly something else. The consistency of these blushes are so soft and buttery, and must be handled with care. The instant you touch your brush into this blush, you're almost afraid it'll be gone with the wind.

The pigment and lasting power of these blushes are insane. When I used to perform, these were my go-to because they didn't drown me out with stage lighting and are sweatproof. (If you're a performer, you'll understand).

There is one thing I thought I should mention, and that is some of these aren't very true to color. If you're shopping online, I would recommend swatching them in store, trying a friend's, and researching swatches online. For example, Mood Exposure looks like it'll be a mauve/plum, and it shows up as a bright medium, cool pink! I was a bit disappointed and surprised, but nothing that a bit of blending and a cool toned highlighter to fix it. Adapt!

Review for: Ethereal Glow more...
This is the most perfect cool toned pink blush I have in my collection! I use it in the winter time when I am at my palest, and it looks so flattering against my skin tone. Every blush is a little bit different with the marbling and I got a blush where there is more of the highlight color than the blush. This means I have to really dig into the product so the pink will show up on my cheeks which I don’t really like. However, I know all the blushes are different I probably just didn’t get a very good one! But once I get the color on my cheeks it is so beautiful! I own like 5 of these I’m obsessed!

Review for: Mood Exposure more...
I have a lot of natural color in my cheeks. I also have good skin, so I didn't want to wear heavy foundation to cover my natural blush. I needed a blush to sculpt my color, so it had to match exactly, both in color and skin finish. I never thought I'd find anything, until ...

Stephanie Nicole rated this blush, and this color, very highly. I tested it at my local Sephora, and it's exactly what I was looking for! I apply it, and it blends so well, I can hardly tell where my brush was!

It wears well throughout the day, too.

I currently have these in five colors, and I am so impressed with them. Most are quite pigmented, easy to blend and leave the most lovely natural glow. The only color I found not as pigmented as the others was Ethereal Glow, and I think that's just because of how pale the pink is. On very fair skin tones it's just as lovely as every other color I've seen. They are a little pricey, but they last a long time. I've also never quite found any blush thay gives as much of a 'lit from within' look that Hourglass is so fantastic at creating. Try it at least once, you'll probably fall in love.

Review for: Diffused Heat more...
I wasn't particularly impressed with swatches of any of these, but there's so much hype about the product and I do love the ambient light powders, so thought I'd give one a try anyway. So glad I did! The color payoff is amazing and it looks great on. The blush gave me a nice flush, while also making me look tan. There is some reflective property to it, giving your face a glow, and I think it will be amazing in the summer. The look feels healthy, like you've been exercising. Will be getting more of these.

Review for: Luminous Flush more...
I bought this in a mini size. How ingenious of Hourglass to come out with mini sizes. Who goes through a whole blush? This color is stunning and truly adds a “luminous flush” to my skin. It’s the right blend of pinky peach. It’s sheer or easily built up, depending on what you prefer. I tend to get naturally pink in the cheeks and this color does not fight with that or make me look overly blushed up. It’s smooth and blends out like a dream without blending to nothing. I recommend any of the Hourglass blushes, but this one would definitely be high on the Get-it list.

I really wanted this to my by new HG blush but I just don't think it's worth what it costs. I couldn't detect anything particular special about it. I thought this color was probably too dark for my pale skin-- and I have yet to find a blush brush that allows me to put a thinner coat on. If you have the money, then sure-- try it. But I think there are several drugstore brands that are a fraction of the price and have a better color selection. 🤷‍♀️

Probably one of the most gorgeous blushes of all time. Hourglass is still forever one of my all time favorite brands because the product (especially powders) quality is the utmost pristine and beautiful ever. This is such a holy grail staple for me that it's in my everyday makeup bag and my fav to touch up with no matter what blush I HAD been wearing. Do yourself a favor and try an hourglass powder product. They are all gorgeous holy grails!

This is the BEST blush I’ve ever used! This color is so unique and amazing. It’s hard even to describe it, it’s plum and peach and pink at the same time. It’s very delicate and gives your face some delicate shine with it! It’s very long wearing and blends perfectly blends with your makeup! Totally worth every dollar
