So when I found out about the Ambient Lighting Blushes, I knew I wanted one. I had a hard time spending $40+ on one blush, but I had a cream blush that I wanted to return anyhow, so that took a few dollars off the price.
And am I ever glad that I got this.
It’s a baked powder on a tile, much like the Ambient Powders. These, however, have blush pigment swirled with Ambient Powder pigment – for example, Dim Infusion is a coral blush swirled with Dim Light Ambient Powder.
A lot of people don’t really understand these blushes, so a lot of the reviews weren’t all that helpful. However, Josh Collier works for Hourglass; as such, his review was very handy in helping me decide whether I would actually use one of these blushes and use it properly.
What I find with this product is that it’s not a highlighting blush at all. It isn’t super shimmery, nor is it extremely pigmented. You can swirl your brush in the whole product several times before applying and still not look overdone.
(Excuse the eye bags. I was up until 2 the night before waiting to see if my professors were going on strike.)
The look I get with it is a very natural one. It adds colour and dimension to my face without looking like I’m wearing blush. It looks like I’m just naturally a little bit flushed. I find that I can even wear this when I’m not wearing much makeup without looking overdone.
Overall, if you can go into the store and try this out, do. It’s an amazing blush and, in my opinion, completely worth the money if you get a shade that you’re a big fan of. Somewhere down the line, I might try Mood Exposure and see how that works for me. However, I’m completely content with Dim Infusion – it’s a unique coral that I don’t have anywhere else in my collection!
