Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush: Mood Exposure

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush

When Hourglass released their Ambient Lighting Blushes, I, like a lot of other people, rushed Sephora’s website and purchased as many as I could (five, to be exact). A few weeks later, I added Ethereal Glow, which was sold out originally. I had intended to review the entire collection at that time but life “happened” and I had to rush back to Florida to take care of things with my parents. The good news is that I have been happily using these blushes since then and I’m ready to review!!!

I have to admit…when I saw Mood Exposure in the pan, I thought, “Ewwww!” It appears to be  “brownish” and blah. “Yeah, I guess it could work on some skin tones,” I thought, “but no way will it work for me.” This, my friends, is another one of those “Don’t judge a book by its cover” moments!

When swatched, Mood Exposure turns into a soft, glowing rosie plum. Never could I imagine that the ugly duckling in the pan could possibly turn into a beautiful swan! You can’t tell from the picture above, but Mood Exposure has almost an ethereal quality as it seems to have its own inner glow. Once I applied it to my cheeks, however, it became off the charts gorgeous!

I find Mood Exposure to be one of those blushes that completely transforms my face and my mood. Believe me, this one was a surprise, my friends, and every time I wear Mood Exposure, I get compliments! My face glows (in a good way) and this blush helps me exude health and happiness. It wears really well and looks fresh even after a long day. About the only difficulty I have with the Ambient Lighting Blushes is their price ($35 each) but, clearly, I purchased them anyway. If you’re going to splurge on a blush, this line is the way to go!

Mood Exposure is a winner for me! Check it out (along with Hourglass’s other Ambient Lighting Blushes) at Sephora.
