Hourglass palette

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette
$67 Cdn at Sephora

Finally!  Hourglass has made this a permanent addition to their line!  I was so disappointed to miss out on it when it launched around Christmas-time.  I have been loving Hourglass Ambient Lighting powders and really wanted this palette!

This palette includes Incandescent Light, a shade exclusive to this palette, and two existing shades, Dim Light and Radiant Light.  So of COURSE I was lusting after the exclusive shade (event though I already have Dim Light).

I'm still playing with the different shades so haven't quite got my perfect "look" figured out just yet.

Here is my bare face - no makeup or powder.  Eeks!  This reminds me of those commercials "this is your brain on drugs".  Anyway - this is my face without makeup.

This is my bare face with just the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light.  It is really hard to show off the effects of these powders on camera.  But I think you can see here that even without makeup, it is blurring imperfections and catching the light so as to make my skin look more radiant.  I have NEVER seen a powder do this!  These powders are incredible.

So here I am again, bare face, no makeup at all.  I have Dim Light on the left (my right), Incandescent Light in the centre, and Radiant Light on the right (my left).  I haven't done anything fancy.  I just buffed them onto my skin with a MAC 134 powder brush.  I didn't even brush my hair for pete's sake (shameful - I know).  I apologize if I scare small children with this photo.  My face is probably still swollen from the dental work I had done.  Ahh - the things we do in the name of beauty - and blogs.

I think you can see here how these powders make the best of your skin!  And for the record - this is the first time I've EVER used a photo of myself without makeup!  I HATE my skin - we have an ongoing battle.

Anyway - if you haven't checked these powders out before - pop into Sephora and try them out for yourself.  They are like an Instagram for your face - for real life!
