Review: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush

This product received a lot of blogger attention when it first launched. I never managed to get my hands on one but I was recently in John Lewis and realised they had an Hourglass counter so snapped one up while they were in stock! I went for the shade Diffused Heat but it was such a difficult decision as all the shades are gorgeous!

I think the packaging is so simple and elegant. It comes in a goldy-brown box and the compact itself is a light gold/bronze mirror effect with simple black text. And once inside, it just gets better...

I'm a big fan of compacts with mirrors included because this makes life on the go much easier! I went for Diffused Heat which is a beautiful poppy coloured blush combined with their Diffused Light powder for an illuminated look. 

Top-Bottom: Swatch & Blended Out

As you can see from the above swatch, it is quite a bold colour but when blended out you can see it gives a really pretty flush of colour. I've included a photo (taken on my phone!) of me wearing this blush as I think this gives a much better idea of the colour it creates. 

This blush is well worth £28 and I'm very tempted to go back and buy another one! The girls on the counter were so helpful and I was even offered a job when I bought it! Never saw that happening!

Have you tried this blush? What do you think of it? What other Hourglass products do I need in my life?
