Lusting After Limited Editions: Hourglass Ambient Blush Wardrobe

Needless to say I've been absent from the blogosophere for longer than I really ought to be. I will say
that writing a thesis takes out more than I expected it to - time wise and also emotionally/physically draining.

But with that aside, being the beauty addict (hoarder) that I am, I didn't stray from the make-up scene. So, to start back I thought I would focus on the Limited Edition purchases I have recently made and whether they really are worth splurging for.

Particularly leading up to Christmas, you will find that gift packs, sample packs or special items pop up in store and online. And I'm kind of addicted to them! They are usually a fantastic way to try numerous items, without spending the money to buy full size and give these products a full try out before committing. However, sometimes companies do the shifty and substitute with sub-par products to merely sell. So stay with me for the coming posts as I test, try and swatch.

With all of that aside, today I'm reviewing the Hourglass Ambient Blush Wardrobe. This comes in the same packaging as the Hourglass Ambient Powder Wardrobe (review here) and I was drawn in. I like the Ambient Powders, but I can't say I'm thrilled with them the way some people seem to be. They are very finely milled and good setting powders, but in all honesty I don't think they "soft-focus" my skin and "recreate the most exquisitely flattering types of light".

So how do the blushes compare?

I'm pretty much in love. I've worn these three shades everyday since I bought this palette, which for someone who chops and changes all the time, is quite a big deal. They are a lovely, finely milled blushes that are pigmented, but not overly so, that you don't need to worry about overdoing it. They also have a lovely sheen that imparts a healthy glow to the skin. The shades are all extremely wearable and look lovely on my very fair skin. I wonder if they will show up so well on darker skin tones, but I still think they would look divine all the same.

I purchased mine from Mecca Cosmetica (link) for $76, but as with all Limited Edition Palettes, this won't stay around for long so I suggest not waiting around.

What Limited Edition products are you eyeing off?
