A while back you may have remembered the beauty community's hearts skipping a beat when the announcement of the Ambient Lighting Blush was released. A mix of the ever loved ambient lighting powders with a complimentary blush shade? Yes please! After plenty of use, I have finally decided how I feel about these and to cut to the chase, I love them.


I purchased four of the six shades, Mood Exposure, Dim Infusion, Radiant Magenta and Diffused Heat.

The blush formulations are incredibly soft and powdery. These are the most finely milled blush I have encountered. When any brush touches these, the blush will delicately crumble beneath them. This fine texture means that it will blend into the skin, rather than sit on top of it and as it is so fine, it truly does melt into the skin. I have found that these are the most natural looking powder blush on the market, without the need of expensive brushes or expert application. They are incredibly pigmented, swatches do not do them justice as for some reason, they swatch terribly. But when a brush is involved, be careful and don't over apply! Not only do they look natural on the skin but the addition of the ambient lighting powder gives a soft-focus finish onto the skin and a very subtle, healthy, luminosity. They aren't shimmery per-se but they do add a glow.


Mood Exposure - is a beautiful every day shade that flatters every makeup look. It is a rosy brown with a hint of plum which is warming, defining but also subtle so it doesn't look like you have purple/brown cheeks. It is a perfect pairing with a smoky eye or just for a natural makeup looking day. I love peachier, coral blush so it did come as a surprise to me that I loved this shade so much, it is one I reach for daily and think that everybody should at least check this out!

Dim Infusion - PEACH. This is a true peachy blush, if you are looking for the ultimate peach, look no further, it has been found. There isn't much coolness or too much warmth, no pink tones. It is the ultimate peach. Have I said peach enough times? Let's go for one more, peach! I am a light-medium skin tone (NC30 +) and this is not too light for me, it adds colour and warmth so if you are a similar skin tone then don't worry as this does show up! The only skin tones I wouldn't recommend this to is dark skin tones as this will show up quite ashy against deeper skin.


Radiant Magenta - this is a stunning magenta shade. However, what makes this very wearable is the gold ambient lighting powder as it adds warmth to the shade. This is one of those, one shade fits all colours as I can see this working incredibly well on the fairest, to darkest of skin tones. It looks a little scary in the pan but it does mimic quite a natural flush, plus it looks beautiful with pink lipstick. 

Diffused Heat - may be my favourite, but that's no surprise. It is a warm coral pink shade that screams summer. On the skin it adds so much warmth that would get people thinking you just hopped off a plane from Dubai (if only) but the pink and yellow tones also bring a youthful flush to the skin. This is my pick for Summer as I think it will compliment tans, bright lips and cosmopolitans!

Overall, these are amazing products which stand out for the formula. If you are looking for a new blush, I recommend checking these out, you won't be disappointed!
