I changed my mind! - Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Dim Infusion

Ok ok I changed my mind.  After my first impressions post on the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Dim Infusion, I've continued to use it every day since because I paid good money for it!

Then in one of Orla from Makeup Over Mind's recent videos, she mentioned that she thought Hourglass would most likely use the same amount of blush and powder pigment in each compact and because they're all handmade, yes they'd look different but ultimately contain the same ratio as all the other Dim Infusions out there.  Orla is wise beyond her years and for the record, when writing this, I had to look up her last name because in my mind First name = Orla, Last name = Makeup Over Mind.


So yes, I've changed my mind and I'll be updating my original first impressions post, linking it to this one.  It definitely gives off more pigment now than those first few days and when I wear this when I'm filming, my cheeks look amazing.  I'm talking Jennifer Lawrence needs to watch out because the sheen and flush of colour I get is flawless.

Now it's still not as pigmented as I'd hoped for, but I really have embraced the more natural look on my cheeks and have decided that I love how it makes it look like my skin is naturally gorgeous, when in fact I'm caked in makeup.  Working my way into it for the past couple of weeks has unleashed some more of the coral pigment and it's inspired me to film a video but more on that next week.

So let me pose le question.  Have you tried a product and not been too keen on it, only to change your mind and love it?  Or has the opposite happened?  Have you loved sommat, then wondered why you let it on your face as you hate it? 

Tell me all!  What made you change your mind?

  1. This just happened to me recently with the Mane n' Tail Shampoo and Conditioner. I now love them but really didn't get on with them x

  2. Told'ya ! :D
    Well I used to love BB creams (asian ones, not european) for a while and then I discovered mineral foundation and I was like "why were you caking up your face with silicone-based goo ?" lol
    And now my face feels so much lighter and comfortable that it was last year ;)

    1. I must say, I've only tried mineral makeup once! I must give it another go, I just didn't think it gave me any coverage at all! But I definitely agree the better you treat your skin, the better it looks :)

  3. The lighter pigment suits me to a T, but at some points I did feel I had bought more of a highlighter than a blush. It's builds beautifully though, in the end I can't fault it even if I really try.

    It's a woman's prerogative to change her mind! Watch out J-Law, we're coming for you AND your amazing cheekbones ...

    1. Yeah, I think I'd such specific expectations when I bought it after seeing Temptalia's review and probably went into a bit of shock when it didn't make me look like her ; I've now calmed myself and really do love it and how natural it looks on my mush :)

  4. Damn, there goes my chances with this powder was hoping you'd hate it and I could buy it off you:) I'm still having problems with the Hourglass ambient lighting powder, it can really highlight my pores which is driving me mad!

    1. I was thinking of you Yav as my love grew for this! That's a shame about the powder itself though, I use mine most days and love it!

  5. No, Karen, no! I don't want to need this. Sigh.

    Lend us a tenner, anyone?

    1. I know, hate to break it to you but on your skin tone, it'd be perfection...

  6. Finally made it to Dundrum tonight & they were all OUT of the powders!! But boy those blushes look amazing. Do they also have some highlighting properties ? They ALL looked gorgeous.

  7. Hi :)
    I felt that way when i first tried the Urban Decay Big Fatty mascara - it was so goopy and ooey. It kinda just glued my lashes out straight :S then i tried it the other day (after leaving it for a couple weeks), and it was fab. Definitely gave me big fatty lashays.

    Also, just wanna say i love this blog so much ♡.♡
