Not that long ago, I raved about the new Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in “Luminous Flush” & “Ethereal Glow.” I was itching to get more but reminded myself to maintain some self control. The day I purchased “Luminous Flush” and “Ethereal Glow,” I left “Dim Infusion” behind and couldn’t stop thinking about it since. I returned the next day for it and I’m super happy that I’ve completed my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush collection.
The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in “Dim Infusion” is a subdued coral shade that is warm and light on the skin. It’s natural with the perfect amount of sheer coral-ness to the skin that’s just pretty and glowy. Out of the 6 blushes in the range, I’d say that this shade is the least workable for all skin tones. While it’s pigmented, the color itself is light. Even on my fair skin tone, I have to layer this shade on twice for the result I want.
For those with medium, tan, or olive skin tones, “Dim Infusion” may not be a good purchase. However, despite that, this is still a great blush and worth the purchase. This is truly 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 colors to a multidimensional level—effectively reinventing the way you view blush.”
Described as a “groundbreaking hybrid” blush, the Lighting Blushes “combine the customized lighting effects of [the] Ambient Lighting Powder[s] with a spectrum of breathtakingly modern hues for seamless, soft-focus, and multidimensional color.” Hourglass claims that these are a new kind of blush since they function like the Ambient Lighting Powders but with a powerful pop of color. Between the three shades I currently own — “Luminous Flush,” “Ethereal Glow,” and now “Dim Infusion” — I’d say I like “Dim Infusion” and “Ethereal Glow” the best. When I want a bright pink, I go for “Luminous Flush.”
