Coming Soon: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette


Limited Edition
Release Date: September 2014
Availability: Sephora

Company’s Description

A limited edition blush palette with three shades of Ambient Lighting Blush for seamless, soft-focus, and multidimensional color. Evoke a luminous glow with this soft-focus cheek palette. Hourglass has fused Ambient Lighting Powder, its cutting-edge collection of finishing powders, with an array of vivid cheek colors, creating a hybrid product that is unique, contemporary, and revolutionary. Infused with Photoluminescent Technology to create depth and dimension, this blush does not fall flat and is lightweight, amplifying the colors to a multidimensional level, and leaving the entire complexion with an otherworldly glow. Featuring Incandescent Electra, an exclusive, limited-edition shade in a cool peach, this palette also includes Luminous Flush—a champagne rose—and Mood Exposure a soft plum color. The hand-made powders are formulated using an advanced miscelare technique—which means “to mix” in Italian—achieving the perfect balance of pigment and powder. No two look alike—delivering a natural radiant finish that offers buildable color.

Most of you will remember the launch of Hourglass’s Ambient Lighting Palette, which people went crazy over. And while I’m not overly impressed by the Ambient Lighting powders, I am more impressed by the Ambient Lighting Blushes.

And on that note, Hourglass will soon be launching an Ambient Lighting Blush Platte, which I’m sure will be just as, if not more popular than the previous palette.

It will be available for purchase at Sephora. You can sign up now to be notified of when it’s available, which is a good idea if you’re set on purchasing it since it is limited edition (for now).

Let me know if you get your hands on it!
