Hourglass Diffused Bronze Light Ambient Lighting BronzerHourglass Diffused Bronze Light Ambient Lighting Bronzer ($50.00 for 0.39 oz.) is a muted, medium, rosy brown with neutral-to-warm undertones and a soft sheen. One of the downsides of the original two shades in the Ambient Lighting Bronzer range was how warm-toned they were, so I think this particular shade is a fantastic addition to the range (they could still use more shades, particularly some deeper and more red-toned options). The powder was incredibly silky and smooth with very little dustiness in the pan. It had mostly opaque pigmentation, which could be built up to opaque coverage, but the softer texture made it pretty easy to just use a lighter hand to pick up less product for sheerer coverage. This shade started to fade on me after eight hours of wear.
FURTHER READING: Formula Overview, which is a detailed review of the range as a whole.
Ambient Lighting Bronzer’s sheer, airy formula sweeps softly onto skin for a healthy-looking, radiant finish. It’s formulated with Photoluminescent Technology, featuring optically transparent particles that transform the look of skin by manipulating and refracting light to emphasize your best features. The optically transparent particles allow for seamless blending and color transitions. The powders, blended by hand using an advanced miscelare technique, offer the perfect balance of pigments in a gorgeous pattern. Use this bronzer alone, or paired with Ambient Lighting Powder for maximum control to create depth and dimension—or even use it for a subtle contouring effect.
