POWDER PORN



Get ready for some serious enabling, if you're like 2014 me and you're still just staring at these instead of buying one, then, well...(can't think of anything witty to finish that with.)
If I had to use one powder formulation for the rest of my life, it would be the one from Hourglass, this isn't one of those products that look amazing but don't perform amazing- in my eyes Hourglass can do no wrong with their powders. My collection definitley needs expanding but that's some pricey shopping.
The same amazing formula is present in every powder product, the face powders, blushers, bronzers and new strobing shades. It's very light weight, it doesn't enhance my dry skin or make me look too matte and ill.

In the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit palette I bought myself with my tax rebate, (remember when I was employed lol.) are three of the all over face powders, which to me are the stand out product of the bunch. They are unique to any other powder and totally worth the money, I find that they add just the right amount of matte to my make up, don't make me look cakey, add a tint of radiance and a healthy glow, as well as blurring imperfections. Iridescent light and Diffused Light are perfect for my pale skin, they don't add any extra pigment. Iridescent light is particularly helpful if i'm wearing a matte foundation and my skin needs an extra little life- it has a very discreet pearly glisten to it that would probably also work as a very subtle highlighter. Diffused Light is a yellow toned powder perfect for setting all my make up in place and softening my complexion.

Their new Ambient Strobing Powders are no step down, I picked mine up in the shade Incandescent Strobe Light but my God do I want the entire collection now I've tried this. This shade gaves off the most gorgeous, pearly glow and glisten on the cheekbones, it's not too in your face but it's totally recognizable. This has quickly become my new favourite 'everyday' highlight, and swapping to Champagne Pop for more drama at night. The highlight is extremely finely milled and does not emphasize my pores even in harsh light.

It's those blushers, those pools of mixed pigment that are featured in every big beauty bloggers flat lays. The Ambient Lighting Blushers are a mix of pigment and lighting powder. I have the shades Mood Exposure, Incandescent Electra (singular pan) and Luminous Flush. They give such a radiant, dimensional finish to the skin, they don't just add colour to the apples of your cheeks, but they add a glow to your cheekbones. Said to be infused with 'Photoluminescent Technology.' these blushers are designed to not look 'flat' like your regular blusher. To touch, the blush is like silk- whilst also looking drop dead gorgeous of course.

Finally, the Luminous Bronze Light bronzing powders. (so far) there are only two shades of this bronzer, both of which are too orangey toned for my fair skin. However, this is a gorgeous all over bronzer for giving you that 2 weeks away in Dubai look with a little extra umpfh. The bronzer has a light dusting of shimmer which adds that extra glowyness to your fake holiday skin.

These powders don't come cheap, but if you're in the market for a new high end product and still haven't experienced the magic of this formulation, do it now. I can't wait to see what's next!
