Hello all, long time no see.
Let's not dwell on the reasons why but just move on to the new review, and maybe i will explain another day. For now let me introduce you to the Hourglass Ambient Lighting powder in mood light.
I picked this one up while I was in Melbourne last October for the Penny Arcade expo and spent some time at Mecca Maxima falling deeply in love with some products, it was love at first swatch.
If you spend anytime on beauty blogs then you know all about these and so feel free to skip because this review is going to get a bit gushy.
Very simmiliar in packadging to the Hourlgass Blushes it's glossy brown case with interior mirror which while nice is probably not going to be highly used (by me at least). It fits nicley in your palm and is a very good size, it's going to last a while.
I picked out mood light after swatching several of the powders at Mecca and pretty much swooned, i walked away but came back 20 minutes later because I couldn't stop thinking how pretty it was. The powder is designed to mimic flattering light as it would appear on your skin. Like many other mineral powders it's mad eof tiny particles built to diffuse light and blur imperfections. Most of the the time this can be a major problem as they tend to be shimmery and turn your face into a disco ball, however the hourglass powders make that not be the case, now sure how, leprachaun magic maybe?
The one you choose will depend on your needs, the diffused light shade for instance is yellow toned and does a good job of brightening and covering any dullness or redness. I choose Mood light as I am terribly pale and have a bad relationiship with sunlight, mood light is pink toned but not red and is great at making my skin look like I might have actually been out in the sun at some point, it makes my skin look alive and awake and photoshop perfect.
