These just arrived at my door step and a much-anticipated release from Hourglass Cosmetics. My all time favorite face powder infused with blush, what more can a girl ask for? I though I’d share my first impressions and compare sizes to the original face powders. I purchase Dim Infusion which is a nice peachy shade with Dim Light veining and Ethereal Glow which is more of a cool baby pink with Ethereal Light veining. Nars blushes are priced at $29 for 16oz of product and these are $35 for 15oz of product. Considering the price you get more with a Nars blush and its less expensive but the Hourglass Lighting Blush is a 2 in 1 product so in my opinion well worth the investment.
Now comparing them to the regular lighting powders which contain 35oz of product you can see above how much larger the pan is but not by much. They’re thin enough that they fit comfortably in my muji drawers. Compared to the limited edition palette that was released around Christmas each pan contains 0.116oz. w You can visibly see (above) how much smaller they are than the blush when put side by side. The packaging is now in this foiled almost rose gold color with the Hourglass etched in black across the lid.
As for the texture of the blushes, they’re super smooth just like the face powders. They’re not super pigmented like a regular blush because they’re suppose to mimic a natural flush of color but with that being said I was able to build them up to get enough pigment to my liking. I have on Ethereal glow right now and it looks so natural and pretty! I’m very content so far and can’t wait to see the other colors in person. They’re now available on the Hourglass website and will be available at other retailer’s such as Sephora, Space NK, Barney’s, Bergdorf Goodman, and Net-A-Porter in February. I’ll keep you guys posted if anything changes but Hourglass, my hat comes off to you!
