description

This groundbreaking hybrid combines the customized lighting effects of Ambient® Lighting Powder with a spectrum of breathtakingly modern hues. The result is seamless, soft-focus and multidimensional colour. Available in 7 shades. Hourglass has fused Ambient® Lighting Powder, the cutting-edge collection of finishing powders, with an array of vivid cheek colours, creating a hybrid product that is unique, contemporary and revolutionary. Unlike traditional blush, which tends to be flat, Ambient Lighting Blush uses Photoluminescent Technology to exhibit depth and dimension. The airy, lightweight powders contain optically transparent particles that amplify the colours to a multidimensional level—effectively reinventing the way you view blush.
