Hourglass Mood Exposure Ambient Lighting Blush ($35.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a warm rosy plum with a natural satiny finish. Hourglass describes the Ambient Lighting Blush line as "a groundbreaking hybrid that combines the customized lighting effects of Ambient Lighting Powder with a spectrum of breathtakingly modern hues for seamless, soft-focus, and multidimensional color."
These blushes are infused with "Photoluminescent Technology" which creates depth and dimension. There are six blushes in the line and each one is fused with a different Ambient Lighting Powder in order to enhance the appearance of the skin. Mood Exposure is infused with Mood Light Ambient Lighting Powder and is meant to give the skin a brighter, more radiant appearance.
I'll admit that when I first saw the promo images for these blushes, I wasn't sold. However, after seeing swatches and reviews, I caved - and I'm glad that I did! Mood Exposure has a smooth, soft texture which feels very similar to the Ambient Lighting Powders. When I swirl my brush in the pan, a little bit of powder dusts up but not enough to make a difference in application. The product blends into the skin so seamlessly that extra blending is not required. I love the radiant, natural, healthy effect that Mood Exposure gives my skin. This shade lasted about 7 hours before I noticed slight fading. At hour 10, it was still visible on the skin but noticeably faded. I definitely plan on picking up a few more shades...when my wallet allows!
