I have this opinion that with Hourglass palettes, you will always get more bang for your buck. So far, that’s true with the ones I’ve purchased. That said, I know there’s no way in hell will I pass up their newest blush palette.
BLUSH AND STROBE
A new evolution of blush, Ambient® Strobe Lighting Blush fuses the illuminating effects of Ambient® Strobe Lighting Powder , featuring ultra-fine micro pearl particles in varying sizes and refraction levels, with modern color hues to provide glowing, lit from within color.
Unlike traditional blush which tends to be flat, Ambient® Strobe Lighting Blush uses Photoluminescent Technology – optically transparent particles that amplify the colors to a multidimensional level, providing a seamless, natural radiant finish.
Ambient® Strobe Lighting Blush is designed to complement the Ambient® Lighting Collection. Using the entire wardrobe of products imbues the complexion with an otherworldly glow.
The hand-made powders are formulated using an advanced miscelare technique – which means “to mix” in Italian – creating the perfect balance of pigment and powder, and no two look alike.
Features two new limited edition shades, Euphoric Fusion and Brilliant Nude, exclusive to this palette.
The Ambient Strobe Lighting Blush Palette includes three shades of gorgeous highlighting blushes, one from the first Ambient Lighting Blush Palette, and two new shades. Incandescent Electra, described as a cool peach blush blended with Incandescent Strobe Light for a celestial glow. Brilliant Nude, one of the new shades, is a deep amber blush blended with Brilliant Strobe Light for a lustrous glow. And lastly, Euphoric Fusion, also new is a soft lilac blush blended with Euphoric Strobe Light for a resplendent glow. Each blush contains 0.09 oz or 2.8 g of product totaling to 0.27 oz overall.
Incandescent Electra was first introduced in 2015 as part of their first Ambient Lighting Blush Palette. Comparing the two side by side, there is more noticeable marbling on the first Incandescent Electra, with — I’m presuming — more Incandescent Light in it so it looks more peach whereas the latest shade has less therefore, looking more coral. I very much prefer how the current shade looks on me anyway so no complaints here.
The blushes are just as soft and finely milled as the rest of the Ambient Lighting Blushes. Minor product kick up is just as present but the pigmentation is way better in my opinion. Only a little product is enough to get that wonderful radiant blush on the cheeks with each shade blending remarkably well. Incandescent Electra wears a little over 6 hours while the two newest shades goes as long as 8 hours on me.
