Let me start off by saying how much I love the Ambient Lighting powders : they add a beautiful glow, never look cakey, and helps to blur imperfections and fine lines. Now, imagine them with a pop of color swirled in them, and there you have it : Ambient Lighting Blush. I chose Dim Infusion because I love my Dim Light with a passion.

Dim Infusion is a light orangey peach with a satin finish. When I swatched it for the first time on the back of my hand, it didn't show up nicely. It looked chalky and the color payoff wasn't that great. However, it showed up just fine on my cheeks, with or without self-tanner. Here's the deal with these blush : my skin is much drier on my hands than on my cheeks, it need something to stick to, and then it will show up nicely even on medium skin tones. It was even more pigmented over a dewy foundation. I'm not sure about darker skin tones than NC35 though, it might start to look too powdery.
This blush is soooo silky smooth, it's extremely finely milled! If you are familiar with the Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light, it's the same texture. However, I was a bit disappointed to find out that it didn't have the glowy finish I was expecting from these. It's more matte than Dim Light, for some reason I thought that it was going to be the same finish. So overall, if I want luminous cheeks I still need to apply a luminizer on top of it.
It's a gorgeous peach shade and I have to admit that I really love it on me, but you need to know that it's a satin finish (slightly more luminous than a matte finish). If you were looking for something more glowy, then you might be disappointed.
