Hourglass Cosmetics Ambient Light Powder for Spring 2013

Remember my post about Jessica Alba’s and Emily Blunt’s looks at the Golden Globes? They both were wearing the brand new Hourglass Ambient Light Powder in Radiant Light.

So now I’ve got all the details about the powders which are supposed to capture, diffuse and soften the way light is reflected on the skin. Moreover,  it should  brighten the appearance and conceal skin imperfections, pores and wrinkles, so that skin appears younger, even-toned and radiant.

How does it work? According to the brand, the secret is  “photoluminescent technology” – micron-size spherical particles that refract light and create transparent coverage, unlike opaque pigments in usual powders. The powder is also paraben, talc, fragrance, nano-particles and gluten free.

Sounds like a dream product, right?

There are six shades and they are:

DIFFUSED LIGHT: A soft, warm, pale yellow powder. Light your skin with DIFFUSED LIGHT to reduce redness and give skin clarity – like a soft ray of morning light.

ETHEREAL LIGHT: An opalescent sheer, cool white powder. Light your skin with ETHEREAL LIGHT to mimic a moonlit glow – even in broad daylight.

RADIANT LIGHT: A sun-kissed golden beige powder. Light your skin with RADIANT LIGHT to extend a summer glow, or enhance the overall complexion with believable, subtle, warmth.

MOOD LIGHT: A soft, sheer lavender pink powder. Light your skin with MOOD LIGHT to mimic the softest most forgiving light and reveal your brightest complexion.

DIM LIGHT: A neutral peach beige powder. Light your skin with DIM LIGHT to blur imperfections and highlight a radiant complexion with the perfect balance of warm and cool tones.

LUMINOUS LIGHT: A champagne pearl powder. Light your skin with LUMINOUS LIGHT to create a soft, incandescent candlelit glow – day or night.

The price is $45, the brush- $35.
