Beauty Find - Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder

Have you experienced a product that, once you tried it, you said to yourself, "I don't know how I ever lived with out this"?

Well, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder  is now officially one of those for me.

That's because it does what many products claim to do, but don't always succeed at - providing a REAL, beautiful, "glow" to the skin.

The ambient lighting power line creates several different lighting effect for the skin, such as my favorite - Radiant Light (pictured, above).  Radiant Light is for a "sun kissed" effect. The golden-beige powder just leaves a sheer wash of glowy-diffused color on the skin. Note: There are also four other color powders to choose from for different effects.

So while this particular shade works very well on darker skin tones, all the different powders in the line can work with every skin tone, depending on the effect desired   There was no "chalky effect" and the powder just seemed to almost melt into my skin, feeling and looking completely lightweight and natural.

I used Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder  after my foundation or BB Cream as a setting powder with the accompanying Hourglass Ambient Powder Brush.  This brush is a perfect, compact size, with soft, dense bristles which deposited the perfect amount of product each and every time.   The powder was so creamy, so smooth, it was a dream to apply all over my face.  Other times I used it just as a highlighting powder on my cheekbones/brow bones.  

The best way to describe the effect is that it looked as though my skin was "lit from within".  It was a diffused effect - not quite matte - but not shimmery either, even in outdoor sunlight. The powder was also amazingly hydrating - it almost felt slightly creamy when applied.  A little goes a long way, so that makes this powder worth every penny as well.

Treat yourself to this one - you won't be disappointed! - RLB
