Hourglass Aura Cheek Tint in Flush Review and Swatches. Rave

Some girls can never have too many lipsticks, some – too many eye shadows, some – nail polishes or perfumes and as for myself – I can never have too many blushes. I am a huge fan of blush, especially cream/gel/liquid so I am always happy to find a good one.

So today I want to tell you about my favourite blush  of the moment and definitely one of my favourite blushes among all that I’ve ever tried. Please meet the Hourglass Aura Cheek Stain. It is a “water-based formula that gives cheeks a lasting and subtle lit-from-within glow”.

Not only the design is beautiful and chic but the product has the highest quality. The texture is amazing, very light and blendable. It gives a sheer and radiant colour but, as suggested, you can always add more to get a brighter shade. I love that it gives a very natural finish and makes you look healthy and beautiful. Aura Cheek Stain stays on for a long time without fading or disappearing from your cheeks.

The shade that I have is called Flush and it’s a sheer red which I absolutely love as it makes me look awake and I can get away with a light foundation or even some concealer, this blush, eye brow pencil, a bit of mascara and it completely changes the way I look!

There are two more shades – shimmery peach and sheer rose.

As I already said, I love blushes and have quite a few but ever since I’ve got this one, I’ve been using it non-stop as I adore it so much. It is pricey £32/$45 but in my opinion totally worth it, as it is definitely one of the best high end blushes out there!

You can get  Hourglass at Zuneta, Sephora or Barneys NYC.


My only concern is about the applicator, I really hope I won’t have any problems with clogging as sometimes packages like this can get clogged. but I hope this will never happen.

I also have a Lip Stain from the Aura collection which I  really like as well, although not as obsessed about it as about this blush, and I will write my thoughts about it later, so don’t miss.

I have to say that Hourglass became one of my favourite brands and their product, just like the BECCA products, never disappoint. So if you have a favourite product from the brand – please share!

    Did you apply with fingers, brush or applicator? I like the shade, but I usually have trouble with applying creams evenly/well.

      Hi Christy ,
      I’ve applied it with my fingers but you can use a brush. Just make sure that you work very fast as it sets within seconds. Because this product is sheer – you can get an even application if you use a thin(!) layer and I think it will be hard to go overboard. Plus it blends very well with the skin. Hope this helps.
