Hourglass has garnered considerable praise from their lovely line of Ambient Lighting Powders, and for good reason. They are ultra finely milled, silky smooth to apply, and offer skin a ravishing glow. The quality is exquisite, and they are a delight to use.
According to Hourglass,
Unlike traditional powders, which merely cloak imperfections, Ambient Lighting Powder utilizes photoluminescent technology to filter out harsh light and refine the appearance of the complexion. The powders deliver a multidimensional luminescence to every skintone, making it appear softer, younger, and lit-from-within. The finishing powders enhance skin in any type of light, including flash photography. With six universal shades available, you can create your desired effect—not unlike having a personal lighting technician.
Powders capture, diffuse and soften the way light is reflected on skin, brighten the appearance, and conceal skin imperfections, pores and wrinkles. Infused with technologically advanced soft-focus particles that help make skin appear younger, even-toned and radiant.
Hourglass conceived of their Ambient Lighting Powders as universally flattering powders that were intended for every skin tone, and that can be worn both day and night. Hourglass posits, "unlike traditional powders that use opaque pigments, Ambient utilizes “photoluminescent technology” – micron-size spherical particles that refract light and create transparent coverage."
They are paraben free, talc free, fragrance free, gluten free and free of nano-particles.
Each shade was created with a specific lighting "mood" in mind. Hourglass describes them as follows:
ETHEREAL LIGHT is an opalescent sheer, cool white powder that mimics a moonlit glow – even in broad daylight.
DIFFUSED LIGHT is a soft, warm, pale yellow powder that conceals redness and gives skin clarity – like a soft ray of morning light.
DIM LIGHT is a neutral peach beige powder that blurs imperfections and highlights a radiant complexion with the perfect balance of warm and cool tones.
MOOD LIGHT is a soft, sheer lavender pink powder that mimics the softest most forgiving light and reveals your brightest complexion.
LUMINOUS LIGHT is a champagne pearl powder that creates a soft, incandescent candlelit glow – day or night.
RADIANT LIGHT is a sun-kissed golden beige powder that enhances the overall complexion with believable, subtle warmth, and also extends a summer glow.
Radiant Light is ultra-finely milled, blends beautifully on the skin, and leaves behind a praiseworthy and gorgeous sun-kissed glow.
