After much consideration, I finally purchased the Hourglass Ambient lighting powder in Dim light, priced at £38. After all the blogger hype around this product, I knew I had to give it a go so I popped to the Liberty's beauty hall in London and ended up making a very quick trip to the till!

The powder is definitely a premium product and has a very smooth and light reflecting finish. I thought this powder would be applied prior to foundation but as it happens, you do all your base makeup first including foundation, bronzer/blusher and then simply dust the powder lightly over areas you want to highlight such as the cheeks, nose and forehead.

I was really surprised by this product as I've tried other highlighting powders in the past that haven't worked on my skin at all. I really like the matte finish of this powder as there's no shimmer/sparkle, plus a small amount covers the whole face so it's proved to be really long-lasting.

I now use this everyday and I'm not sure my makeup bag could cope without it! It's especially useful for a night out as it help's makeup to stay in place and helps to reduce shine where my skin is more oily. The packaging is also super luxurious and has a great mirror on the inside of the compact.

I would have loved to buy the matching brush too but I think that will have to wait until next time!

Do you love the Hourglass products?
