I’ve been counting down the days until the Hourglass Strobing powders would become available and the anticipation was SO worth it. They are truly stunning, I picked up Iridescent Light and intend on ordering more. I was already a fan of Hourglass products and I believe they’re Ambient Lighting range to be outstandingly good however, these powders take that to another level. They are finely milled, sheer and oh so blendable, not to mention the gorgeous and iconic packaging…
The Strobe Lighting powders have been released in four shades, ranging from pink to yellow undertones, each giving a unique luminosity. I went for Iridescent Light which is a sheer pink pearl shade, because it’s unlike any other illuminating powder in my collection. I typically gravitate towards pigmented golden highlights such as Becca Champagne Pop however, these are completely different.
A ‘strobe’ powder is the perfect name for these, after swatching a few highlighters it is clear that ‘highlighter’ would be too strong of a name. The Hourglass Strobe Lighting powders add such a gorgeous ‘lit from within’ glow that is unlike any other powder I own. It’s so finely milled and blends into the face with such ease. I feel radiant apposed to shimmery, which is perfect for an everyday look. They add a very natural and refined highlight which creates depth without the need for harsh contour. As the pigment isn’t overpowering, it is gorgeous swept across the high points of the face with a fan powder brush for an effortless radiance.
They can also be used wet for a more intense glow, which I think will look gorgeous in an evening. Also, I believe they are all permanent products so no need to panic. In terms of value for money, they are £34 for 4.6g which for the quality and awesomeness is a very reasonable price. There are so many new releases that are making me super excited about makeup and blogging, with this being one of them. These are amazing and you need them in your makeup bag!
