Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Diffused Heat

One of the most exciting release in the beauty world has to be the new Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush.

I LOVE their Ambient Lighting Powder, and I have been using it every single day since I got it back in October. I have the Diffused Light (yellow undertone), so when it comes to the blush in the same range, I went for Diffused Heat. There are 6 blushes in the range, each blush is supposed to be compliment the matching name powder.

The compact is in the same shape as the powder, it is a bit smaller and in gold compact.
The blush is just like a little piece of art on its own. The blush powder is mixed in with the Lighting Powder to create a unique marble effect. They are all hand made marbling so each and every blush will have a different pattern!
Diffused Heat is a vibrant poppy pink colour. It glides beautifully on my cheeks. I was surprised by how pigmented it was when I first used it! A light-handed application will give the most beautiful natural pink, or it can be built up to give a healthy flush to the face.
I normally swirl my brush over the whole surface. But I also mentally divide my compact diagonally into two halves: dap my brush on the bottom left hand corner for more intense colour, or dap the top right corner if I don’t want that much pigment. That is just how the pattern spreads on my compact. As every compact has a different pattern, some would be more evenly marbled than the others.

The blush gives a subtle glow and is not too highlighty, it is no problem if you want to use your favourite highlighter on cheekbones.

I am loving this blush, and I already have my eyes on a couple other colours: Luminous Flush is a champagne rose blush; Dim Infusion is a soft coral.

Have you tried any products from the Ambient Lighting range? Which one is on your wish list?

Budget Buy: MUA nail polish in Natural Days

When I was in Superdrug to buy the Tiffany colours (NYC nail polishes  - check out my blog post here ), as the offer was 3 for 2 across all nail polishes, I picked up a MUA polish as my freebie. I saw this pastel baby pink colour in Natural Days. The colour looks really cute in the bottle.

Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum

Lately I have been obsessed with the Estee Lauder Enlighten Dark Spot Correcting Night Serum . In the past I tried the Kiehl’s Clearly Corrective Dark Spot Solution, it was alright but I didn’t find the result that amazing. So when I got a sample of for this Estee Lauder Enlighten Serum, I didn’t have high hopes … But how wrong I was! The sample bottle lasted me for two generous weeks and after that I rushed out to get the full size. Although it is called a serum, it is a light milky lotion texture, it is easily absorbed into skin and it feels moisturising. With the sample bottle, I used it every night after my cleansing routine. I can see visible results to my face after two weeks. My blemish marks are significantly lighter (my main concern) and the skin tone for the rest of my face is visibly more even.  Now I have the full size bottle (30ml, also available in 50ml size), I am going to follow the instructions to use it both day and night. Use it at night to reduce
