Review: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush

Hi Makeup Geeks!

I got to tape this video in my new house- as you can tell, it’s totally girly! (can you tell I’m a girly girl? ūüėČ ) I wanted to review the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush as everyone has been talking about them. ¬†My reviews are always 100% honest and I did actually buy these myself!

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush 02


These blushes come in a sleek rose gold case that includes a mirror and the blush itself. ¬†I love how classy and “high end” these look, while being unique with the rose gold finish. ¬†The compact is sturdy and is excellent quality.


The quality of these blushes is amazing.  I love how smooth and silky they feel while still remaining fairly pigmented.  My only complaint with these is the three pink colors are fairly similar.  There could have been a little bit more variation in color as well as matte finish instead of all just shimmery.

Here’s my recommendations for what colors to get for different skin colors!

  • Fair Skin: ¬†Dim Infusion and Ethereal Glow
  • Medium Skin: ¬†Luminous Flush and Mood Exposure
  • Dark Skin: ¬†Radient Magenta and Diffused Heat

Blush Colors


  • Dim Infusion: ¬† Subdued Coral
  • Ethereal Glow: ¬† Cool Pink
  • Luminous Flush: ¬†Champagne Rose
  • Radient Magenta: ¬† Golden Fuchsia
  • Diffused Heat: ¬†Vibrant Poppy
  • Mood Exposure: ¬† Soft Plum

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Swatches

Price: $35

Where to Buy:   Amazon,    Ebay,    Sephora

Overall I give these blushes a 5 star as the quality and packaging is amazing! ¬†It’s definitely worth investing in one or two colors. ¬†I hope you all have fun with your makeup shopping!
Much love,

Peaceful Pets and the 22 Week Bump.

22 week baby bump

1) It’s nearly eleven and I need to take my bra off (ALL bras make me feel as though my ribs are being crushed in a vice at the moment!) and so a very short Sunday Tittle Tattle this week. First pic (above) is of my baby bump at twenty-two weeks (I’m twenty-three weeks tomorrow), just in case you don’t follow me on Twitter or Instagram. It’s growing at quite a fine rate, now! There are already parts of my anatomy that I can’t see…

2) This week’s other Tittle Tattle photos are of my very Peaceful Pets. There have been no mad moments this week and thus no breakages, though Dexter the dog¬†has¬†chewed through the crotch of two pairs of maternity leggings (gross!) and also shredded the edge of the bath mat. Overall, though, quite a minimal damage tally. Marvellous. Let’s see how we get on next week….

How to Live The London Look – Advertorial


If there’s one thing I love, It’s makeup and style with a bit of grit. My style has always veered on the edgier side, and often the brightest colour you’ll find in my wardrobe is Khaki Green.
As a teenager I was obsessed with skateboarding, punk music, alternative fashion and generally rebelling against the system.

When Rimmel London invited me to take part in their very first RimmelRoadTrip, I was super excited to revisit my old teenage stomping ground in Cardiff and give Fleur De Force a tour of the city. As a teen, many Saturday’s were spent skateboarding through the city centre with my friends, Listening to music, sitting by the fountains & attending music shows. It felt like the city was alive, and as teenager, image was everything.

Although a lot has changed since my teens… I’ve now lived in London for nearly ten years, I drive an Electric Car, rather than a skateboard, and music shows no longer rule my life. I still stay true to my teenage style as best as I can (…maybe minus my bad emo phase). My most worn shoes are still a pair of Converse and grungy Biker boots, whilst some of my friends have never seen me wear anything except skinny jeans and a leather jacket!
One thing that hasn’t changed however, is my love for that gritty edge to my makeup. As a teenager I wouldn’t be seen dead without winged liner, and smokey smudgy eyes. I used to adore heading to the drug store in search for the blackest black eyeliners and shadows I could get my hands on, and Oh how I wish we had the makeup selection back then that we have now.
