Luminous Flush, Incandescent Electra, Mood Exposure
The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette contain 3 shades : Luminous Flush, Incandescent Electra and Mood Exposure. Incandescent Electra is only available in this palette, the other 2 shades are part of the permanent range.
These blushes look powdery and poorly pigmented when I swatch them on my hands (my skin is so dry) but they are MUCH more pigmented when I apply them on my cheeks, over my foundation or moisturizer!
I didn't do cheek swatches for these blushes (sorry!) because I wanted to post this review as soon as possible.
Luminous Flush is a medium pink with a pearl finish. I love the finish, it doesn't look frosty at all but still give a beautiful glow!
Incandescent Electra is a light coral pink with a luminous finish. It's more shimmery than the other shades without being glittery or overly frosty. It doesn't look like Dim Infusion, which is matte and more peachy. It's such a beautiful color and I wish all Ambient Lighting Blushes had that luminous finish!
Mood Exposure is described as a soft plum. It looks like a taupe plum shade in the pan, but on my skin it's a peachy brown with a satin finish. How weird is that? It's pretty, but not was I was expecting (I really wanted a plummy shade).
I think this palette is a good deal, a full size blush retail for $41 CDN for 4.2g and with this palette you get 9.9g for $67 CDN. It has a value of $96, so you basically pay for 2 colors and get the third shade for free. What I'm trying to say is.. if you like at least 2 shades, it's well worth the money!
