It's Looking Promising: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light


I think I have found my new favorite face powder. I have said it before and I will say it again: I do not like a matte finish. This is why I am thinking the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light might be the perfect powder for me. There are definitely other powders that I have been impressed by but in terms of creating a really natural, glowy (without being shimmery) finish.

This powder seems to go above and beyond all other face powders that I have used though because of the way in which it almost blurs imperfections and creates a soft focus effect. I always notice that I prefer my skin in different lighting situations so I think this is such a clever idea. It is described as a 'neutral peach beige powder' on the Sephora website and it retails for $45. I have only used it a handful of times though so I'm not ready to say whether it is my all-time favorite powder so far but it's looking good....

Sign up at Nasty Gal for a chance to get your hands on a vintage Chanel bag. Ooh la la is right!

    1. I originally wanted the trio palette but that was sold out! It was much better value but I don't know if I would have been able to deal with the different options everyday haha.

  2. I love this stuff! After reading all the hype surrounding it, I finally caved a few months ago and bought an Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light.. It's so nice for girls who prefer more of a dewy finish and don't like mattifying powders..

    1. It just looks so natural :) Although I feel like some people use it as an actual highlighter which confuses me
