hourglass ambient lighting blush review: mood exposure

Handmade in Italy, the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blushes are something truly special. Those beautiful swirls of pigment and highlight mean that no two blushes are alike. Swoon. I feel as though Hourglass cosmetics came storming through, sweeping us off our feet with their elegant packaging, beautiful pigments and handmade products. Would you believe that I put my favourite NARS blush on the back burner for this little gem? Because I totally did

Mood Exposure is made of a finely milled, super silky powder that blends easily onto your cheeks. The beautiful soft plum colour is literally my go-to colour for all my fall and winter looks. The blush is super pigmented so a little goes a long way. You can't help but get a warm and fuzzy feeling every time your brush touches your cheeks with this blush; it gives off a natural and flawless finish with an almost blurred effect. In terms of the product, there really isn't anything bad to say. It is fairly pricey but when you factor in the quality of the product and keep in mind that it is handmade, all I can say is you get what you pay for.

rating: 9.5/10
If the price was just a bit lower (under the $40 mark range), this would have definitely received a perfect score.
