Hourglass Ambient Light Powder

Wednesday, 24 September 2014

Hey Lovelies,

I try to avoid jumping on the beauty bandwagon unless I am genuinely in love with the product and can see it being a make up bag essential rather than a whim.

So for a while I ignored the Hourglass powder phenomena, thinking 'I don't do face powder/how dated/ completely excessive'.

Somehow between popping into Space Nk to look at Kevyn Aucoin lipstick and leaving the store I purchased the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder.

I casually mentioned the product to the lovely sales assistant and she simply said 'let me show you the difference it makes' 

And true to her word, the powder created a light soft dewy finish that made my skin glow. The finish was natural but gave this attractive polished look that you just can't achieve with a liquid product. It also stopped unattractive shine on my nose and forehead.

My main concern would be that with a product like this is that you could look glittery but due to the consistency of the powder it leaves a dewy sheen with a touch of shimmer rather than a glitter trail.

As the Space NK assistants announced "this product is like Instagram filters in a powder!"

You can really layer this product to create your desired finish, I'll be honest and say I think you can over do this product and I have seen some girls look like an extra from Twillight but perhaps that's the look they were going for...

The range of shades enables you to really tailor the use of each powder for a range of uses including contouring, highlighting, bronzing etc

I asked the fab team at Space NK to help me and they were brilliant in going through each shade with me and stating "to dark/light/tan" and finally helping me settle on Ambient Lighting.

I'll be honest the packaging is so beautiful it hasn't yet been launched into my make up bag but I am certainly using this product on a daily basis and I am now always selfie ready hee hee!!

Lots of love
