Hourglass Blush in Mood Exposure Review
Blush has long been one of my favourite makeup tools to spice up my complexion.
During the fall and winter, I am quite pale so during those months blush is my best friend. It becomes one of my daily beauty essentials. If I’m ever in a rush I tend to quickly just apply my mascara, blush, and lip-balm before heading out the door.
Hourglass Blush Review
What is it?
“A groundbreaking hybrid that combines the customized lighting effects of Ambient Lighting Powder or Strobe Powder with a spectrum of breathtakingly modern hues.” – Sephora.com
This blush is a very delicate mauve-tone blush. In the pan, you’ll notice there’s a marbled look of deeper mauve tones and softer pinks. This marbled effect is achieved during the mixing process.
The colour of this blush is really what I would consider my perfect blush shade. It is a rich plum-rose tone that looks so beautifully natural on the skin.
This warm mauvy blush has a soft luminous finish to it. It’s not glittery or sparkly, but it does have something that creates a subtle radiant shift.
I’ve worn this blush a number of times now, and I would say that it lasts about 10-12 hours on the skin. The variance in the wear time really comes down to where you are and what you’re doing. For example, if you’re outside in the elements, it’ll likely wear off sooner than if you’re indoors at the office.

This is a powder blush with a soft and velvety feel to it.
Powder blushes are typically my go-to. I find they easily build up, and are great to work with in a rush.
There is a small amount of kick-up when you dip into this blush. But, that isn’t surprising or unique for a powder blush.
This is an expensive blush at $41.00.
Even with the steep cost though, I definitely will be purchasing this blush again. I adore the colour, the texture, and the way it applies.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Mood Exposure has become one of my absolute favourite blushes and it’s one I’ll purchase in the future again and again.
I love it’s rich and unique mauvy-plum tone, its natural radiant finish, and it’s velvety texture.
