I gave into temptation and order one of the famous Hourglass blushes, after seeing millions of blog posts and videos, I handed over €35 plus €5 shipping so €40 in total for one blush. I know its nuts! I blame the spending ban.

If I'm honest I was a little disappointed with this blush when I opened it for the first time. I suppose it was luck of the drawer ordering offline as every one of these blushes are made by hand so the design etc are all different but you can imagine my huge disappointment when I opened it to reveal little colour. Now the colour itself comes out a very natural coral shade, almost on the bronzed side of coral if that makes any sense. It is still really pigmented despite its colour to powder ratio which I was happy with. I apply it with my real techniques blush brush and I do find it easy to over do it with this blush, so I think it will last me a long time.

I will say this about the blush and its how radiant it leaves the skin after applying, it literally makes your cheeks glow. I suppose its the ambient powder that is in the blush as they are meant to leave a glowy look to the skin. The blush lasts a good few hours on the skin, not all day but it does stick around for a good amount of time. That could just my skin though as I do have an oily complexion. One problem I did find with this blush was that it settled into my pores and made them look huge, I can only think it is the ambient powder than did this because no blush has ever done that to me before. So that was a little disappointing.

Overall I have this to say if you are buying one of these, buy it in-store don't take the risk and order online because you could be left with something like mine, if you are paying over the odds for a blush get a good one. Will I order one again? probably not, I don't hate the blush but considering it cost me €35 plus shipping is kinda crazy and I can think of all the other things I could have bought with that money.

Have you tried these Hourglass Blushes?
