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?
