Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder Review

Hi Girls

So today I’m going to talk to you about one of the most raved about products in the last couple of years and that’s the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder. This is a finishing powder that is said to have ground-breaking ingredients which reflects the light. It gives the skin a beautiful, natural,  radiant glow and of course I had to get my hands on one!

Products Claims:

‘Ambient Lighting Powder is a wardrobe of universally flattering shades that recreate soft focus effects, emulating the most beautiful lighting sources. Each powder captures, diffuses and softens the way light reflects on the skin. It brightens the skin’s appearance and conceals imperfections, pores and wrinkles. The ground-breaking photoluminescent technology makes skin appears as though you have just stepped into your perfect light. – Suitable for all skin types. – Free from Parabens, Talc, Fragrances, Nano-particles and Gluten.’

My Thoughts:

I won a voucher in work so I wanted to really treat myself and buy a luxurious product that I’d probably never dream of buying. When this powder was put on my skin I instantly fell in love.

It’s one of the lightest feeling finishing powders I’ve ever used and it can be used in a couple of ways. The first is to use it as you would with any other highlighter and apply to the tops of your cheeks, down your nose, over cupids bow and across the forehead. The second is to sweep all over the face, yes all over! This is a really subtle, natural highlight that gives a stunning sheen to the face in light.

The shade I have is Dim Light which is  a little dark at the moment for my fair skin but it will be perfect in summer when I have a bit of a tan and it’s perfect when I’ve fake tan on.

The thing I love most about this product is that it doesn’t contain any glitter or shimmer chunks. It’s just a natural glow and the formula is just perfect.

I also need to take a moment for the packing! It’s sleek, luxurious and sturdy. The highlight comes in a bronze/brown compact with a handy mirror which is perfect for travel.

For me, this isn’t a product I use everyday and this is mostly down to the price. I save this for nights out and special occasion because I never want it to run out. Because I keep it up for good use I do feel special when I use it.

I wouldn’t say this is a must have product purely down to again, the price but it’s 100% the perfect gift for any makeup lover. It would be a beauty product for the Christmas wish list and or as a special treat for yourself.
