Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette Review and Swatches

Hello ladies! Please excuse the longest title in the world, it just makes it easier for those google searches. I know that I rarely buy any make up without having a little nosey at the reviews and Google images of swatches.
So today I'm bringing you the loveliness that is housed in this sleek little palette. I've heard so much about this brand especially when it comes to their ambient lighting powders and blushes and so far I've resisted temptation. Partly if I'm honest is because they don't have an Hourglass Counter at my local Space NK so if I'm spending more than £20 on a blusher I want to make darn sure I love it.
Ok let's take a look inside.

We have 3 gorgeous colours in here.


Colours from left - right.
1. Mood Exposure.
2. Incandescent Electra.
3. Luminous Flash.

These are such smooth finely milled glowy blushes. They remind me of the Too Faced Love Glow blush but of a higher quality. You can apply this lightly or build up for a stronger colour. The first layer can be fairly sheer.
I think the 3 colours in here are pretty universal and most fair - medium skin tones should be fine with it. I'm not too sure if it would suited darker skin tones. So this palette will set you back £ which isn't bad for 3 mini sized blushers. It perfect for travel or to pop in to your handbag. I'm going to happily reccomend this to you all and Id grab it quickly as its sure to be a sell out.

The 'Me' Time Tag

Hi ladies, it's not too often I do a tag post on here but I saw this one on YouTube and thought it might be nice to give it a nod on my blog.

What do you watch or read during me time?
I like to watch something that's easy viewing so my top 3 shows at the moment are Suits, Towie and Made in Chelsea.
When it comes to reading I am a total chick lit girl at heart, so something by Sophie Kinsella, Lindsey Kelk or Paige Toon and im generally hooked.

What do you wear during me time?
Either cosy pyjamas or A&F trackies.

What are your me time beauty products?
I love a good hair mask so either the Philip Kingsley Elasticizer or a hair oil all through my hair. Currently im using the Loreal mythic oil.

At this time of year it is always OPI Malaga Wine.

What do you eat/drink during me time?
Terry's chocolate orange and Walkers Sensations Thai Sweet Chilli.

Do you ever have outdoor me time?
Nope I'm afraid I'm just not an outdoors kinda gal.

Would you ever go see a movie alone? feel very weird doing this!

Favourite online shop?
At the moment....Amazon. I'm addicted to the Prime delivery and the fact that you can get absolutely everything.
Clothes wise ive falled in love with Topshop again and beauty shop for me is usually HQ Hair.

What else do you do during me time?
I like to sit on social media for ages, read tweets and catch up on blog posts. Love watching new YouTube beauty videos and looking at instagram. Oh and also Pinterest....I can spend hours on there daydreaming making up my dream boards.
