The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushers are "groundbreaking hybrids that combine customized lighting effects with a spectrum of breathtaking modern hues for seamless, soft-focus, and multidimensional colour." This range of blushers use 'Photoluminescent Technology' for "depth and dimension with airy, lightweight powders containing optically transparent particles that amplify colour."
Despite the eyebrow raising marketing and over-written blurbs, Ethereal Glow is absolutely, freaking gorgeous regardless of whether it's been oversold with bent truths or not. The blushers are formulated so no two look alike, delivering a radiant, natural finish with buildable colour that gives a gorgeous glow to the skin.
Ethereal Glow is a cool toned baby pink swirled into a pearly shade, ideal for very fair/pale complexions. It is incredibly light, appearing almost sheer on first application; it's so light it can be used as a highlighter or built up to create the most beautiful gentle flush. Quite a heavy swirl in the pan is required to pick up enough colour to use as a blush, although once it's on the cheeks it provides a natural glow that lasts several hours.
Hourglass Ethereal Glow Ambient Lighting Blush is absolutely gorgeous and while it's possible to find similar shades from other brands at not quite so high price points, I appreciate the ability to use this as a highlighter and blush to create a variety of finishes with the dual effect formula.
If you want a blusher that makes you look as though you have been kissed on the cheeks by angels, buy this one.
