I've been toying with starting a new series reviewing all the brought that I've bought based what I've seen hyped about by bloggers and you tubers, and if they lived up to that hype. I thought that it would be a nice series as I don't have any series currently ongoing.The first for the series is the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in the shade Mood Light.
Hourglass just screams fancy as hell to me, as well as expensive. But hey, we all have to splurge once in while. The only place that I can get access to Hourglass is at SpaceNk, which is where I get all my more 'luxurious' products. I always feel super uncomfortable and out of place there.
I swatched all the shades against my skin, and decided that Mood Light was the one that I was most drawn too. The official description is that it's very pinky-lavender toned. I find that it is more similar to a soft beige colour, until you really layer it up; then you can really see the pink coming through. It has such a light sheen to it, but still blends really nice into my natural skin. It brightens up my face without it becoming too glitterbomb-esque! The texture is so very soft and silky, probably the softest powder in my collection. This is a finishing powder, and not a setting powder, which means it has no oil control properties. I have to set my face prior to dusting the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder over my face.
Do I agree with the hype surrounding this product? I'm 50/50 on the fence with it. The powder is phenomenal and does wonders on making my skin glow healthily, but it is not an essential product to own, and that I must use everyday. It is better suited for special events, or days when my skin is dull, needing a bit of a perk up! The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder is available at SpaceNk for £38.00.
What is everyone's opinion on the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder? Love it or hate it?
