That Perfecting Powder feat. Hourglass

It's about time right? I've been lusting after these for close to two years now...
The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders have been ever so hyped. Light semi-sheen inducing powders that mattify and set liquid product but still give you a lit from within glow that doesn't look fake or cakey is a bit of a large claim isn't it? Hence my curiosity. Whilst I had the opportunity to try these when I was in the UK, at that pricetag, I had to choose between the Hourglass Powder and food... ofcourse the latter won.
Recently, I placed a little Sephora order when my best friend was coming back from the states, most of it for my kit, but I got this and one other thing for myself.
After uhmming and aarrhing, I chose the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light as it was supposed to blur imperfections and give your skin a slight glow... and boy does it deliver!
I use it to set the concealwe under my eyes, centre of my forehead, all over my nose and my chin... and you can see the difference it makes before and after in the pictures.

It lasts all day long and genuinely makes me feel so much more confident in my own skin. I have to say I LOVE this.
Also, let us take a minute to appreciate that sexy packaging, because it ticks every single box for me.
So much so that it's very quickly moving into 'holy grail' product territory.
Even though I'm not much of a blush girl... I have my eye on Mood Exposure... maybe even the bronzers... I need help.

What are your thoughts?


  1. It looks amazing on you! I love Dim Light! And okay, yes, you do need Mood Exposure. The blush give you the most perfect, natural flush ever, I don't care what anyone else says. I want their bronzer too! It's gorgeous!

    1. I want ALL their stuff now. But yes, Radiant/Diffused Light is next, along with Mood Exposure. Or just their palette! BAH.

  2. I have been eyeing mood exposure for so long..aaagh i need to get it..and their bronzers look amazing but the price point of 50$ stops me everytime :(
    I dont have mood exposure yet..def giving it a try next time I am in sephora..it looks radiant on you!

    1. Same reason I didn't pick up the Bronzer. I really do want their Blush now. Jesus, Makeup is an addiction!

    2. I can agree on the addiction part.....I am addicted to eye shadow palettes....I don't use palettes on a day to day basis, but all the brands come out with new palettes every month, and I am so tempted to buy em all....you look amazing girl!

    3. Thank yoouu! I'm getting into the Palette thing, but I can still control myself. I have NO control over face product additions!
