Hourglass Ambient Blush Palette || Review

Hourglass Ambient Lightening Blush Palette - £56

Well hello beautiful (insert heart emoji here). It was only a matter of time until I caved and bought this especially after this post. I just couldn't resist, the idea that it was limited edition and I might never own it haunted me day and night. One night, whilst browsing John Lewis (as you do) I noticed it was in stock. Before I knew it, it was in my basket and I was logging into Paypal!

When it arrived, I nervously opened the (beautiful, gold) packaging to check my 'marbling effect' to non beauty bloggers they wouldn't have a clue but girls I know you have my back. Luckily the marble pattern is really nice. Luminous Flush is more pinky than gold, Incandescent Electra is more of a peachy/gold highlight and Mood Exposure is an equal mix of plummy champagne. Basically for me, this palette is a blush, highlight and contour kit - perfect!

I have been using Mood Exposure to contour because i'm incredibly pale and it looks so subtle and beautiful, out of the two blush colours Luminous Flush is my favourite but Incandescent Electra is the perfect blush for glowing skin. The swatches are very light but that reflects the texture and pigmentation of these shades. I like that they are lightly pigmented as it makes them easier to work with. You can never apply to much and look over done.

I would honestly recommend you pick this up if you see it around, yes it's £56 but that's for three really good sized blushes. The whole kit could be your blush, highlight and contour kit and if you think realistically, £56 is pretty cheap for all three!
