Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders

I have had these for over a year now. I bought them when they first got popular, because I am a slave to trends. I had to see what all the fuss was about. I read beauty bloggers wax poetic about how photoshopped-in-real-life this powder made their faces look, and I had to get in on it.

So some people made it seem like this could be used as a highlight because it is so light, but I couldn’t get it to show up enough to be a real cheekbone highlight. I have found that my favorite way to use this is on the bridge of nose to subtly highlight it without looking like I have a glittery stripe down my face. While I like this one, I’m not sure it is worth the money.

Now this is the one worth the money. This is such a stunning, subtle glow that gives my face a very blurred, blown out look. I love using this under my eyes when they need a little extra brightness, and around my nose to blur my pores. The powder is super finely milled, and it blends perfectly and doesn’t look glittery or chunky. I think that this one was definitely worth the money, at least for my skin tone/type. I don’t think I will be buying any more of these, as 45$ is pretty steep for a face powder.

Let me know if you guys like any of these powders! Thanks for reading!!

Glowingly yours,

Jess

      They are! Dim Light is for sure my favorite because it shows up the most on my skin! I like that they have a few different shades so everyone can find one that they like!
