If you’ve been reading for a while, you may remember that I gave the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light a somewhat mediocre review (read it here). Now I don’t quite know whats changed in the past 7 months, but my opinion on this product has definitely changed a significant amount. Therefore I thought it necessary to bring you volume 2 of this review…
Let’s recap to when I used this product before. My skin was considerably oilier and I had far more imperfections. I thought that this added no coverage and didn’t aid at all to longevity. Forget everything I said. I have finally seen what the hype about this product is. What I have found is that this is at its best when paired with a more dewy foundation – I’ve been pairing it often with Clinique Even Better Makeup. Something about this combination gives me the most glowy and perfect looking skin and I am obsessed (expect a post fully dedicated to that foundation in the near future). It smoothes out the skin and diffuses any imperfections and leaves the skin looking like skin.
What this powder is also wonderful for is to set your under-eye area. Sometimes when using a full coverage powder that you used to set your face makeup under the eye it can cake and settle into fine lines. This powder is so finely milled (excuse the cliche blogger phrase) that it diffuses and perfects what ever product is underneath, and is lightweight enough to be ideal for the delicate eyes.
Now the only downside is that this is a very expensive product. I would say that all you oily-skinned gals should probably steer clear of this one, but if you’re into that glowy look then you might want to save your pennies and give this a try. Have you tried any of the Ambient Lighting Powders?
