Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder

Hi everyone,

Here's another quick review.  Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder.  Hourglass is fast becoming my new favourite cosmetics brand!  This is a lovely, very finely milled luminscent face powder that gives a beautiful soft glow to the skin.  It is supposed to mimic various times of the day and night to provide soft light and luminosity without looking like a disco queen (not that there's anything wrong with that of course).


Are available in 6 shades:

Ethereal Light: An opalescent sheer, cool white powder that mimics a moonlit glow—even in broad daylight.

Diffused Light:  A soft, warm, pale yellow powder that conceals redness and gives skin clarity—like a soft ray of morning light.

Dim Light: A neutral peach beige powder that blurs imperfections and highlights a radiant complexion with the perfect balance of warm and cool tones.

Mood Light:  A soft, sheer lavender pink powder that mimics the softest, most forgiving light and brightens the complexion.

Luminous Light: A champagne pearl powder that creates a soft, incandescent candlelit glow—day or night.

Radiant Light: A sun-kissed golden beige that enhances your tan

I have the Dim light (and no nothing to do with my intelligence thank you!) which beautifully sets my foundation without going cakey.  Especially under my eyes where I need emolient concealers and correctors.
I absolutely love it!  Yes it's a little on the expensive side.  But a little goes a long way.  There's no need to pile this stuff on.  A little on your T Zone and you're good to go.  I like quick and easy results.  Especially in the mornings!

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder is available from Mecca Cosmetica in Australia and retails $59.  For everyone else there's Sephora of course and Hourglass online as well their many concession stands in various department stores through out the USA.

I'd love to know what you think of these.  I think they are beautiful.

Until next time
