I have two of these in the shades, "Brilliant Nude" and "Mood Exposure". For your reference, I am NC20 in depth with neutral slightly olive undertones. I already have some slight redness on my cheeks (leftover from old acne breakouts), which affects how I feel about certain blush shades (I stay away from reds and bright pinks that will just accentuate the already present redness).
I was surprised at how hard it is to find solid reviews on the shade Brilliant Nude, maybe because it is fairly new to the lineup. Despite the lack of reviews I still decided to take the plunge and purchased it based on how Allana Davison seemed to love this shade. This is a very nice peachy colour that is not too orange (which reminds me of the Fuzzy Peach gummies). On my skin tone, it really brightens and livens up my face - a truly perfect summer blush. I personally really like this shade, and I find it to be more of a true peach compared to Clinique's Cheek Pop in "Nude Pop", which is a peach that leans more pink.
Mood Exposure is a shade that I didn't find myself enjoying as much as I thought I would. On me, it reads a plummy pink that can easily resemble rosacea if I'm not careful with applying it lightly. But when softly applied, it makes me look slightly flushed like I just took a long walk in the cold winter air.
Perhaps this line has been recently reformulated but there is noticeable shimmer in both blushes, and it becomes especially apparent as the blush wears off. It can't be seen from far away but when I am a step away from a mirror and I turn my head, my cheek sparkles. That isn't really the finish that I'm into (I like the natural sheen-like finish of the Clinique Cheek Pops a lot more). The lasting power of these blushes is typical of how long powder blushes last on my face, though I find Brilliant Nude wears off faster (at around 6 to 7 hours) compared to Mood Exposure (which can last around 8+ hours). Some people complain about these blushes being powdery, which I don't find that to be true at all. However, I am not a brush swirler and that probably explains why I have no issues with powder kickup. I take my Japonesque Blush Brush (slightly loose and flat, fluffy, and domed) and softly drag it over the blush in one fluid zig-zag motion before applying. In terms of it looking powdery on the face, I have combination skin and my cheeks can get a bit greasy so it's not an issue. As expected from Hourglass products, these blushes are great quality. They are very soft, finely milled (though not creamy, per se), blendable, have fairly good pigmentation while still being buildable, and are housed in sturdy, lightweight compacts that are perfect for travel.
Overall, these are great blushes, though I do wish the sparkle factor is turned down to a zero. I am not sure if I would repurchase these when I run out, but perhaps I can't decide because I am just spoiled from only using blushes that have had mainly raving reviews (these Hourglass blushes and Clinique's Cheek Pops) so I don't know how to appreciate these fully. However, if you are in the market for a new blush then I would still recommend these.
