Finishing Powder

I am so proud of my make up collection and that I have a few products that I really love. I don’t have to stress myself into finishing them up and I get to enjoy them more.

I only have two face powders that I use everyday plus a third one which is living in my pouch inside my everyday bag.
The other two powders I already featured in one of my articles. They both come from the same brand. And this time I am gonna share my thoughts about the Hourglass Ambient™ Lighting Finishing powder.

I originally wanted to try the mini version but I got a discount from Sephora so I decided to go for the full packaging. Mind you, I was not freelancing anymore when I purchased this so yes, I am guilty of buying this to use exclusively for myself. =P
I rarely do buy expensive make up items.

In fact I don’t really know what to expect with this powder. Although of course I have read the comments and beauty blogs and watched a bunched of videos about this before splurging. I am not familiar with Hourglass products. I did have the face primer in the past which have lived in my kit. It’s an incredible product,I should say but unfortunately when I used it for myself, it broke me out. And I was so sad. So I had to hope but at the same time I know that this powder is a major risk, that it wont work just like the face primer being a face product, too.

I got the shade Diffused Light which is warm pale yellow. And I wasn’t disappointed you guys. I can’t explain how this turn my skin from dull to having a soft lit. It says on their website that this is a technology called Photoluminescent, and that is what separates this powder from the others in the market.

It is incredible. Amazing. I have never ever tried something like this before from a powder. And because of this rarity Ambient powders are named to Vogue 100 Beauty Hall of Fame in 2016.

I have to say, though, that I have extremely oily skin, you all know that. I would be honest, at first I haven’t used this a lot as a face powder because the first time i did I got so oily easily which happens a lot whenever I use a powder which isn’t mattifying. I loved it as a highlighter, though. It is so suttle and it isn’t too highlighty if you know what I mean. I have another highlighter powder but it’s just too much for everyday use so I always reach for this Hourglass powder instead.

Now I still have oily skin but not as extreme as before so I get to extend using this powder under my eyes, and in some other areas of my face not only on my cheeks.
Like I said it transforms my dull skin. It is so soft and it isn’t powdery at all. It doesn’t mattify which is what most of the powders that I have owned. It isn’t even a luminous powder but it doesn’t emphasize any imperfections on my face. It is really amazing.

The Ambient powder is available in various shades. You can check out their website for the right shade for your skin tone.
It has no paraben, no talc fragrance free, gluten free, vegan and cruelty free. Hourglass is considered to be luxury cosmetics. I am not surprised as their prices are high. They are proud of their innovative formula and guys, the packaging is so elegant. I love it.
Both packaging and product is all worth it in my opinion.

Their first product launch was back in 2004 and they have always been against animal testing and a percentage of the annual profit goes to the fundamental rights for animals.
I think that is awesome. I respect that a lot. I love my kitties and it is good to know that the cosmetic brand to which my money goes support animal rights.

I just want to say that I think this is an excellent product. And I know a lot of high quality products that I can’t even use for myself, I am glad this Ambient powder worked out for me unlike the face primer. I am impressed and it is not everyday that we get to see incredible make up products like this.

If you are eyeing out this product I am gonna go ahead and recommend it. You all know I have sensitive skin so it is always hard for me to find the right face products. But if you have doubts always read the ingredients if you are allergic to any.

This turned out to be the right product for me. I think it is 10 out of 10. You can be rest assured that part of your money will also go to a good cause. And.. being Italian, I am proud to say that this is Made in Italy!

Thank you for reading, I will see you on my next article! Ciao everyone!
