Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Dim Infusion

Having withstood for so long against the beautiful Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes, I caved when in Liberty's the other day. The are just too gorgeous to walk past without drooling over. Originally I always though I would go with Luminous Flush as it would be the perfect shade for all seasons however after a long chat with the wonderful sales assistant I walked away with the unique coral shade Dim Infusion.

These blushes have been really raved about since they were released earlier this year and I love my Ambient Lighting Powder, read more here, they have been firmly on my wish list for a long time now. There are six shades to choose from and the idea is they act as a blush and highlight in one, creating a pop of colour and glow in one easy brush stroke. The product is gorgeous, the colour and highlight marbled together beautifully. They are handmade in Italy so no two pans are exactly the same.

After much deliberation I left with Dim Infusion and I have to admit when I first opened the packaging I was a little disappointed as mine seemed to be more highlight than colour. This definitely is noticeable when applied as I do not get the same pigmentation as when I swatched it in the shop, which is incredibly disappointing as these are not cheap! I kicked myself for not sticking with my instincts and picking the more pigmented warm pink Luminous Flush. 

However, things are not all doom and gloom! Since then I have fallen in love with the colour and finish, it is just not exactly what I was expecting. The colour is incredibly subtle but can be built up into the most unique beautiful shade. The peachy coral is perfect for the warm weather and the blend of highlight makes it the perfect glowing simple look. Although if I am honest I still have a firm eye on picking up another shade I can use throughout the year that has a little more pop to it! 

You can pick it up from Space NK or Liberty's for £28.

What is your favourite blush?
