Whilst I was in New York recently, I treated myself to the blush of my dreams. A blush that I have been lusting after for the the last two years and the blush that has captured the hearts of all beauty bloggers: Hourglass's Ambient Lighting Blush in the shade 'Mood Exposure'. Sephora, you are an absolute babe.

Coming in at £32 on Space NK's website, I managed to pick this beauty up for $38 in Sephora. I had no intention of buying myself anything quite so extravagant on my visit to NYC; I wasn't even sure whether or not to let myself loose in Sephora. It was actually Jack who encouraged me to go in and explore! I walked out with my head held high and a little black and white bag in tow. After discovering Max Factor's Creme Puff Blush in the shade 'Nude Mauve' earlier this year, knowing full well that it was a drugstore dupe of Hourglass's 'Mood Exposure', my temptation rose to an entirely different level. It's been the sole blush in my make up bag for the last three or four months, acting as the perfect pick me up on a dreary, rainy morning. If a drugstore product had stolen my heart, the high end version must be something worth screaming about—and that it is! The blush is actually fairly pigmented, meaning that a little goes a long way. It puts a natural shine on my cheekbones and gives my face an awakening like no other. The biggest difference that I always find between high end and drugstore dupes is the lasting power, and this beauty stays put on my cheeks all the live long day. And not to mention the packaging... it is absolutely to die for. And all round 10/10 product.

Have you tried this blush? Can you recommend any other products from Hourglass? Leave me a comment!
