Hourglass wasn't a brand I was aware of until fairly recently, my first encounter was Anna's makeover where she picked up the Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick. It really caught my eye and I did a little bit more digging and came across the Ambient Lighting Powder. I saw a glowing review from Kate and knew I had to get my mits on one. I decided to go for Diffused Light as it looked like the most yellow of the bunch, I have quite red toned skin and I hoped this would help calm down the appearance of that.
The powder it self is literally like silk, it is the most finely milled product I have ever used come across. I like to use my Real Techniques Powder Brush and finish my make up with a gentle dusting all over the face. There is a slight shimmer to the powder so I also occasionally use it as a highlighter when I want a really subtle glow. It claims to capture, diffuse and soften the way light reflects on your skin and I have to completely agree. My skin looks totally different with this than any of my other powders and it creates a really flawless finish.
It does have a hefty price tag and I did feel a touch guilty when I added to my Space NK basket but now I've got it I can't imagine not having it in my life....a touch dramatic I know, but it is bloomin' amazing!
