      They are so popular that I think every beauty lover should at least try it to see if they love it. Hopefully they can return it if not xx

    These blushes look great, I haven't tried this or the MAC Mineralize blushes but if they are similar I think I will try the MAC blush ๐Ÿ™‚

      They aren't as luxuriously soft but they give you a similar effect and texture. xx

    I honestly haven't even allowed myself to go near one of these at Sephora because they are so ridiculously out of my budget haha but I can believe you when you say they're always sold out! Sooooo much hype around these blushes and, while I do think they are the prettiest in terms of packaging/make around I just don't think they look different enough on people's cheeks to justify the price. This does look stunning on you though Coco!!

      It's crazy!!! Even when I go to Sephoras in low-traffic areas or "dead" malls they are STILL sold out.

    I've been wanting Diffused Heat for so long and I finally saw it in a different Sephora a little over an hour away and then I was thinking… eh, lol.

    Beautiful photographs. This looks lovely, although it is interesting that the colour in the pan looks lighter and pinker than the swatch!

      I know, I was surprised at how it swatched. Although marbled products tend to swatch a bit differently depending on the pan. x

    they look so pretty, but i agree that for the money i just don't know if i could justify it – rather find a cheaper alternative xxx

    • TheBeautyMilk

      18th Apr 2014 - 3:27 am

      Yep! Give the MAC Mineralize Blushes a try. And a cheaper alternative to those (not as nice but a fraction of the prize) are the new NYX baked Blushes x

    I think we're on the same page- pretty, but hard to justify the price tag D:

    I have been searching for Mood Exposure in Calgary but it's always sold out. I think it looks beautiful on you. I'm on the same page as you in regard to the price. I think it's a bit crazy to buy all the shades when there are other blushes out there that are similar and less expensive.

      Yeah, I mean, if you have the money, why not? I certainly don't but the packaging is a big part of its appeal x

    I do love the look of these, but they are a bit too expensive – I'd rather get two blushes for that price, you know? But then again, I'm never THAT attracted to high end stuff (self-preservation). It looks lovely though!

    I really can't see myself forking over $35 for a blush either. That's a bit excessive to me.

    They are just so beautiful looking, I'm sure that's about half of why we fall for them! This shade is beautiful, I much prefer a shade like this that can be built up better than some of the paler shades! I too much prefer to buy cheaper blushes but I often want to buy a more expensive blush because the packaging is so enticing!

    Wow this is beautiful. I really love the hourglass packaging ๐Ÿ˜€

    Ahhhh, Mood Exposure was sold out everywhere during the sale! My sister really wanted one, and we probably went through 3 or 4 Sephoras looking for it. $35 is a lot to shell out for a blush, but from seeing other reviews I think it's worth it for me. I think it looks good on you!

    This is a review that I really enjoyed, I really like that you think in very practical terms. I'll just save my money and go for a MAC mineralize blushes instead. Thanks for the review.

    Don't worry. You won't be the only one out there who fell for the trap. Hourglass products always look amazing and I think Mood Exposure looks good on you actually. Very natural and effortless ๐Ÿ˜‰

    I have Diffused Heat and it's definitely one of my all-time favourite blushes. Maybe it's because the Ambient Lighting Powder shade that's marbled into it is so light, but wearing that blush makes it look like I've actually bothered to put highlighter on!

    I don't know how much longer I can say "no" this this blush. Hourglass hinted at releasing an Ambient Lighting Blush Palette, so I really hope that happens!

    Looks gorgrous on your skin! I bought the dim infusion and I actually really like it, thinking of picking up radiant magenta at some point too

    Love this shade on you! I have Diffused Heat and Radiant Magenta and love them both- but now that you mention it, they are rather similar to MAC's mineral blushes, which I also really love! Dainty is one of my favourite blushes ever ๐Ÿ™‚

    I have Diffused Heat but I wanted Mood Exposure but it was sold out, how funny! I adore these blushers. I have to say, I've just bought Milani ones and can't help but feel they are very similar. I have a MAC one too and I agree, they are similar, but I'm a sucker for packaging, so beautiful. Love the honest review.

    I have this one ordered ATM waiting for it to arrive, because of the price tag though I think you may be right but I haven't used any MAC mineralised blushes.. do you have any you recommend? I have similar colouring to you ๐Ÿ™‚ xo

    Nice review. This blush looks so PRETTY! Wish i could apply blush, but i always think im doing it wrong and it'l look silly so i don't wear it ๐Ÿ™ And its products like these that makes me wish i do, you made it look natural, which is what i like for my look.
