I picked this little beauty up a while ago (if you want sneak peaks follow me on instagram!) but only tried it out recently. Normally I reserve these for youtube as first impression videos but this was pretty much the 'highlight' of my makeup so it deserves it's own post.
In the UK you can pick this up for £32 from Space NK if that's convenient for you. I got a cheeky little discount online so keep your eyes peeled (ew, I hate that phrase) for offers. Hourglass has fast become a cult favourite and now I can see why...
The packaging is simple and elegant. I love the rose gold shades and shiny textures - as far as judging a product by it's cover goes, this one gets full marks. It is very compact and easy to use. The blush itself isn't flat so you'll hit pan after a long time.
I use this new 'paintbrush for your face' to apply it. This is a medium size and perfect for swiping onto the cheekbones. It definitely packs a punch, so lightly tap or you'll end up with a clown face like I did my first time...
This is so pretty isn't it? The duo mixes perfectly for a subtle glow and dash of colour on the cheeks. You can use it as a highlight too or as eyeshadow. It suits a lot of skin tones and can be quite subtle, so don't be afraid of the pinkness of it!
These are photos of the application. It complemented my warm toned eyes and dewy skin. If you're pale like me, a little goes a long way.
What do you guys think?
