I decided to buy this product as the blogsphere is only bursting with rave reviews since the launch of the range. I have to confess, I didn't see the wow effect immediately when I was wore it for the first time. It takes a few looks during the day to see the full, amazing effect of this product.
The Ambient Lighting Powder gives your skin a lovely glow, without making it in any way shiny (my skin is on the oily side so the 'no shine' bit is very important for me). It's a very delicate effect but the powder blurrs out pores and lines and gives you a fresh and healthy look. It also photographs beautifully!
The powder is designed to catch, diffuse and soften the surrounding light, create a sort of soft focus. The Hourglass website says "Unlike traditional powders that use opaque pigments, Ambient utilizes “photoluminescent technology” – micron-size spherical particles that refract light and create transparent coverage".
I can really see why people love these powders and rave about them: they simply are one of these flattering products that make your skin look better without caking it in product. So if you are in the market for a product that can give you a glow without an oily finish have a look at this product. There is 6 beautiful shades in the range. It is not a cheap product, but absolutely worth it! You also only use a small bit so it will last for a good while. Here in Ireland you can get it in Space NK.
