For spring, Hourglass has released a new formula, Strobe Light Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder ($38.00 for 0.16 oz.), which is available in four shades (one we saw in the holiday palette). They are housed in a mirrored, plastic compact and are similar in size to the Ambient Blushes. They are designed to be used wet or dry, so I have included swatches of both applications and in reviews, I will have applied them onto the face both ways as well. Full reviews to come!

Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Powders for Spring 2016
Ambient® Strobe Lighting Powders are formulated in a sheer base with concentrated ultra-fine mico pearl particles in varying sizes and refraction levels to give off a naturally luminescent highlight to the skin without a heavy metallic finish. Developed with Photoluminescent Technology to capture, diffuse and soften surrounding light to refine the appearance of the skin. Can be used wet or dry for varying levels of intensity, taking you from day to night – from an everyday, wearable strobe highlight to a dramatic evening strobe highlight. Available in 4 universally flattering shades for all skin tones. Designed to be used with the Ambient® Strobe Light Sculptor for the most effortless application.
When I think about a go-to color for a bold, party look, I always think red. I’m curious to know what your go-to color is when you think about it! There aren’t nearly as many shimmery/metallic reds as there should be, in my opinion, that are permanently available. I’d love to hear about more that I’m missing out on!
