Recently Hourglass gave Sephora VIB‘s a teaser sneak peek of the new Ambient Lighting Blushes.  If you were a VIB you got a chance to purchase the blushes early, before their official launch at the end of the month.

Six shades of these blushes will be available (of which I need all) but for today I’ll just be showing you Luminous Flush.

Hourglass LUMINOUS FLUSH Ambient Lighting Blush Swatches & ReviewWhat Sephora says about Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush:

What it is:
A groundbreaking hybrid that combines the customized lighting effects of Ambient Lighting Powder with a spectrum of breathtakingly modern hues for seamless, soft-focus, and multidimensional color.

What it does:
Discover a new way to blush. 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 multidimensional level—effectively reinventing the way you view blush.

Each hand-made blush is 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. The six shades ranging from soft coral to cool pink are a wardrobe of captivating accent lights for cheeks. They deliver a radiant, natural finish and offer buildable color to imbue the entire complexion with an otherworldly glow.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
– Parabens

What else you need to know:
Designed to be paired with Ambient Lighting Powder, the twin formulas share the same technology that enhances the appearance of the skin. Using them together creates a multidimensional luminescence that is not achieved by using a different product. This product is free of fragrance, nano-particle, talc, and gluten. It was not tested on animals.

Shade and shade descriptions: Dim Infusion (a subdued coral blush fused with Dim Light to add warmth), Diffused Heat (a vibrant poppy blush combined with Diffused Light for a subtle halo effect), Luminous Flush (a champagne rose blush fused with Luminous Light to evoke a candlelit glimmer), Radiant Magenta (a golden fuchsia blush combined with Radiant Light for a summer glow), Mood Exposure (a soft plum blush fused with Mood Light to brighten the complexion), and Ethereal Glow (a cool pink blush fused with Ethereal Light for a moonlit luminosity).

The formula is really smooth & easy to blend… I can’t even begin to describe how impressed I am.  Buying one (or all!) of these new Ambient Lighting Blushes is a must!

Hourglass Luminous Flush Ambient Lighting BlushOn my lips I’m wearing one of my favorite lip combos ever – Hourglass Extreme Sheen High Shine Lipgloss in Origami and Nectar.  Normally I do Nectar first, then Origami, but in the look above I switched them around and did Origami first, then Nectar.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush retails for $35.00 and is available at Sephora.  Please note, as of posting time all of these were listed as out of stock, Hourglass Cosmetics (via Twitter) has told me the following: “The Ambient Blush will be available on Sephora.com regularly on 2/18, and in-store on 2/21″.  Can’t wait!!!!

    Brooke, this is a great color on you! Love the lip combo too!
    I didn’t pick up any of the blushes in the VIB pre sale. I really wanted to see swatches first. (Isn’t my restraint admirable? lol I usually have none!) I know this shade will definitely be on my wishlist!!
