Product Review: Hourglass Ethereal Glow Blush

I just realised it’s been a long time since I posted a product review on the blog, but this blush is well worth the honour of being the first review in quite a while. I love my Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette (although I’ve been using it a lot less after dropping and smashing it), so I was really intrigued when the brand released this line of blush. To be honest I couldn’t really justify the price with a cupboard full of blush waiting to be used, so I tucked them away in the back of my mind for future reference. When Christmas came around last year I made sure to pop them on my wishlist, and was lucky enough to receive Ethereal Glow as part of my gift from Sebastian. This is a lovely blush, but I think the reason it works for me is because I have such fair skin. The blush is dusty and the payoff is faint, which means I need to apply a lot of product to get any sort of colour to show on the cheeks. When the colour does show it’s a stunning soft pink with a hint of shimmer to it. I love it so much I even included it in my capsule makeup collection for Autumn. The Hourglass Etheral Glow Blush retails for $46 AUD and is available for purchase from Mecca Cosmetica/Maxima.

FOTN – Pot Luck Dinner Club

One of my best friends decided to start up something called Pot Luck Dinner Club, where once every 6 months or so we all meet up at someone’s house for a themed dinner party (to which we all bring a dish). The ‘pilot’ dinner party was a Vegetarian Mexican Fiesta, and I decided to slap on my Autumn Capsule Makeup for the evening and share it with you all. Here’s what I wore: Givenchy Photo Perfexion Foundation in Perfect Ivory, YSL Touche Eclat in #1, Laura Mercier Loose Powder in Translucent, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Ethereal Glow, Urban Decay Primer Potion, NARS Kalahari Eye Duo, Urban Decay 24/7 Glide On Eye Pencil in Hustle, Hourglass Brow Arch in Soft Brunette, Lancome Hypnose Mascara, Chanel Lipstick in ‘Rivoli’.
