Hourglass Ambient Light | Beauty



It's been a while since we had a beauty post isn't it? In fact I very nearly did a mini Sephora haul but I didn't get the pictures on a nice background so I might filter through the other bit's into other posts. I know, I know I'm a bad beauty blogger because I threw the packaging away before photographing it for my blog so one picture is kinda gonna have to do! Soz!!

So today I'm going to give a little review of this Hourglass product.  Ok, every beauty blogger knows that this brand and these specific products kinda has a cult following, at one stage everyone was writing about Hourglass. Personally I think this brand has the most beautiful products and packaging I have ever seen, so I totally get the hype, however when I looked at the price tag I just couldn't justify it! Having a browse around Sephora, I found myself staring all heart eyed at the powders and highlights but again I decided to walk away.
Whilst I was purchasing something else, I found all of these minis and to my delight they had a teeny tiny, Hourglass Ambient Light highlighting powder in Dim Light! Well, I am a sucker for anything miniature, so you know I picked it up quicker than you can blink! OK,  so the price was still expensive for the size at $32 but it's a really good way to at least try the product out before committing to the full sized.

So let's talk about the actual product, it's definitely a peachy kinda neutral shade which isn't too beige for my pale skin, I think the website says it has like a blurring effect on the skin. I was actually very impressed with how finely milled this product is, it has highlighting elements but not so over the top that you look like a glitter ball in a 70's disco!  I decided to use it all over my face because it is that beautiful! I wouldn't use it as a highlight as I don't think it would stand out that much! The first thing I noticed when I applied it was that it really does add a little more dimension to my face, because of the highlighting particles it means that the light catches more on the natural contours of my face and not the ones I just try and create with other products.

You definitely don't need a lot of this product, I use my Ecotools powder brush give it a swish in the pan apply, and then another quick swish and apply. It just gives your entire face a bit of life! I can't really say whether it has a blurring effect as my skin is quite acne scarred so maybe on normal skin the effect is more visible but I definitely love this power and will be buying the full sized when this runs out!

Have you tried any Hourglass products?
