Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush – Dim Infusion: $35 (in US Sephora), 4,2 g.
Ok, is there anybody who hasn’t been lusting over these blushes? I mean, wouldn’t you just have it because they look so wonderful? For me, it was a love at first sight! Look at this pattern! How could you possibly not fall in love with it? OK, that’s it – if you answered to my question with ‘yes’, I don’t believe you!
Let’s first start with the packaging. It’s golden and plastic, which I don’t mind as it makes the product easy and therefore good for traveling. A little downside is that fingerprints get all over it, but it’s not like Nars packaging that is also hard to clean. Inside is also a mirror.
The blush itself is quite different from what I’ve experienced so far. It’s extremely pigmented and super blendable. The first time I used it (actually it was another shade but they are quite alike in characteristics) I just touched the blush with both sides of brush because you never know what you are getting into with blushes :D And I ended up with a big pink ‘dot’ on my cheek :D I panicked, of course, but I was also impressed with how easy it is to blend it. It’s not like you have to add up tons of powder over it. So yeah – pigmentation and blendability (did I just invent a new word?) is what you get here!
Oh, and I should not forget about long lasting power, which is also amazing… 8 hours, and I bet it would go more, but I usually remove makeup after I come home.
Dim Infusion is quite natural coral (? – you know I’m not good with differentiation of coral, peachy and orange haha) shade, which in my opinion goes well with fresh, soft make up looks – perfect for the spring!
Now, I know price tag is quite heavy on those and I still can’t decide if it’s worth splurging on it, especially if your short on cash. Yes, it is an amazing product and I don’t think I’ve tried any other blushes that would last on me that long (but I still have some that I haven’t try yet – problem much?). I think that are worth buying if you can afford it and if you need a blush that would last on you the whole day, but buying it just because of hype and becuase it’s pretty (khm khm).. Don’t think so.
