Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders - group shot white lowres

Did you notice the glow sported by Jessica Alba and Emily Blunt at the Golden Globes? It was ALL Hourglass Cosmetics’ new Ambient Lighting Powder, a cutting-edge finishing powder that diffuses the way light is reflected on the skin.

The minute we heard it was used on the actresses, we knew we needed it. But, like many new products, the celebs got first dibs before it even launched. Fortunately, there’s no wait because they’re HEREEEE!

The powders brighten the appearance and conceal skin imperfections, pores and wrinkles, so  skin appears younger, even-toned and radiant.

It comes in six shades:

DIFFUSED LIGHT: A soft, warm, pale yellow powder. Light your skin with DIFFUSED LIGHT to reduce redness and give skin clarity–like a soft ray of morning light.

ETHEREAL LIGHT: An opalescent sheer, cool white powder. Light your skin with ETHEREAL LIGHT to mimic a moonlit-glow–even in broad daylight.

RADIANT LIGHT: A sun-kissed golden beige powder. Light your skin with RADIANT LIGHT to extend a summer glow, or enhance the overall complexion with believable, subtle, warmth.

MOOD LIGHT: A soft, sheer lavender pink powder. Light your skin with MOOD LIGHT to mimic the softest most forgiving light and reveal your brightest complexion.

DIM LIGHT: A neutral peach beige powder. Light your skin with DIM LIGHT to blur imperfections and highlight a radiant complexion with the perfect balance of warm and cool tones.

LUMINOUS LIGHT: A champagne pearl powder. Light your skin with LUMINOUS LIGHT to create a soft, incandescent candlelit glow–day or night.

And Ambient Lighting Powder is so special Hourglass had to give it its own brush: Ambient Powder Brush, a densely packed brush ideal for evenly dispersing the powder onto every contour of the complexion. The brush is equipped with extra soft, high-grade taklon bristles and packaged with a protective travel pouch. Cool, right?




They’re available right now for $45 each ($35 for the brush) at and will be in Barneys New York, Bergdorf Goodman, Sephora & Space NK in February.
