For some time now (even before starting So Lonely in Gorgeous), I've been on a personal "no foundation, concealer and face powder" buy. I was very proud of myself for never deviating once (my willpower for beauty products is nil...btw, gifts don't count :P). That is, until Hourglass released their Ambient Lighting Palette. I've been wanting (and by wanting, I mean dying) to try the Ambient Lighting Powders ever since they came out. So, I was excited (and by excited, I mean besides myself) to get my hands on this palette, which was part of a mega ever-going beauty swap with Justine. Also, to further justify this purchase, the Ambient Lighting Palette is a great introduction into the Ambient Powders, especially since the travel-sized trio offers an exclusive shade.
I'm sure you've read from here to Timbuktu about this palette, so, I'll skip the monotonous product description and, just say, these powders are fantastic! I will be purchasing the remaining four shades. In experimenting with the powders, I found certain products worked better than others. For example, FACE atelier's Ultra Foundation just soaked up the powder, doing nothing to radiate the complexion, it worked beautifully over Nars's Sheer Glow Foundation, and my absolute favorite pairing of all, over Dior's Hydraction Skin Tint (half-way through my last backup...sad).

Have you tried Hourglass's Ambient Lighting Powders?
Looking gorgeous one lipstick at a time.
