I am AGAINST highlighter powders. I purchased LORAC’s Perfectly Lit Oil-Free Luminizing Powder some years ago and could not figure out how to use it – like it was a rubiks cube that needed to be solved. No matter what I did, it was too much. I looked like I was frosting my face. I finally threw it in the garbage. My skin was too greasy to effectively use powders without it cakeing up on my skin, and the frosting action was too much. I eventually picked up LORAC’s Oil-Free Luminizer in Pearl 1, which I LOVE! This was goof proof. Since then, I have never lusted after, or been remotely curious about highlighting powders. Liquids and creams are my go to. So multi-purpose, so easy. But if anything is going to get me to try a powder highlighter….I think it may be these….Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder…ACK!
Say it ain’t so…Hourglass! These are soooooooo flipping expensive! Did you have to come out with more than one color? Why, why, why!?
Why did you have to add that techno-speak – me and beauty-enhancing technology – MUY SIMPATICO. “Photoluminescence and color-correcting”…arrgghhhh. “Transparent micro-“…stop right there! “Alter and refine the perceived appearance of the complexion by manipulating and filtering”….!!!! Can it filter out my acne while sucking up my pores?….NO. Damn.
Six universal shades? As in, I can use any of the six shades for a different effect? YES! Eh, I’ll take 4. Don’t need all 6. I can show restraint.
BUT WHY LIST THE PRODUCT ON YOUR WEBSITE, SEPHORA, IF IT’S NOT EVEN AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE!!!! None of the four shades I want are available!!!! ARGHHHHHHHH.
SCREW THIS MARCH BAN…IT’S 2013 AND A NEW QUARTER.
I will just stare at my collage…that’ll tide me over….We’ll see if this oily skinned, acne-prone girl can be converted by this product. I haven’t even tried it, touched it, seen it in real life, and I WANT TO BELIEVE!!!!
From Sephora’s website:
Mood Light – Soft, Sheer Lavender Pink
Diffused Light – Soft, Warm Yellow
Luminous Light – Champaigne, Pearl Powder
Dim Light – Neutral Peach Beige Powder
*Hmmm…maybe I should swap out the Dim for the Radiant…I hate peach beige on my yellow-green skin. But that powder color looks interesting.
gave me ETA as end of January…they can’t keep these in stock – ARGGGHHHHHHHH has these back in stock baby!!!
