Review: Hourglass Dim Infusion Ambient Lighting Blush

Hourglass Dim Infusion Ambient Lighting Blush4

My Sephora finally stocked up on these new Ambient Lighting blushes from Hourglass. I’ve never tried any of the Ambient Lighting Powders, but this blush is supposed to have “Dim Light” as its base. I picked up this blush in the color “Dim Infusion,” which is a gorgeous corally-pink.

Hourglass Dim Infusion Ambient Lighting Blush is said to be “A groundbreaking hybrid that combines the customized lighting effects of Ambient Lighting Powder with a spectrum of breathtakingly modern hues for seamless, soft-focus, and multidimensional color. Unlike traditional blush, which tends to be flat, Ambient Lighting Blush uses Photoluminescent Technology to exhibit depth and dimension.”

The packaging is very sleek and luxurious looking. I feel super fancy applying this blush to my face. The texture is incredibly soft and applies like butter. The color is also true to pan, which is honestly the most perfect coral shade for spring and summer. It is described as a “subdued coral blush fused with Dim Light to add warmth.” I think this color would work best for light to medium skin tones. I’m about a NC20, and I think this shade would show up best on skin tones up to NC30.

Even though this is the lightest shade out of the 6 blushes Hourglass came out with, Dim Infusion can be applied very softly and blended out for a light sheen or can be built up more intensely for a wonderful coral, almost orange effect. I didn’t notice this blush clinging to any dry patches or emphasizing any pores. I was also able to get a good 7 to 8 hours of wear before noticing any fading. I highly recommend heading over to your local Sephora and getting your hands on one or four of these before they sell out!
