Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Luminous Light

You might have noticed from my Space NK Haul, in yesterday's post, that my brand crush of the moment has to go to Hourglass. The price tag may make your purse weep a wee bit but if you're looking for quality products for a post exam or summertime treat, then Hourglass is a safe bet.

In the case of the new Ambient Lighting Powders, I think £38 is something I could easily spend again on another shade. I can see this powder lasting me a long time with only the minimal amount of product needed to give my skin a new leash of life.  These powders are finely milled and free from parabens and fragrances which are known to irritate sensitive skin like mine. The primary aim is for these powders to diffuse the light and softly blur out any complexion complaints you may have such as pores,  lines, and blemishes. I L-O-V-E this product, my skin is left glowing, imperfections minimised, and I find it extremely long lasting for us girls on the go, an all round winner. No more cakey powderiness, thank you.

I picked up the shade Luminous Light which acts more as a highlight than an all round facial powder (looking at you, Dim Light). What I love about this is that I can softly sweep a light layer all over the skin for a subtle but radiant glow, or brush a dusting of this on my high points such as my cheekbones, bridge of my nose, and cupids bow for an incredible glowy sheen.

Have you picked up any shades from the range?
