Strobe ‘n’ sculpt: meet strobing makeup’s new must-haves from Hourglass
February 9th 2016 / 0 comment
Hourglass's new Ambient Strobe Lighting Powders and Sculptor are a strobe of genius in our opinion. Here’s why
Swipe, sculpt and strobe: that’s how easy Hourglass’ latest additions to its highly popular Ambient Lighting family make feigning a glow-on-the-go.
Making strobing simple, subtle and more wearable than ever, the Strobe Lighting Powders provide the perfect mixture of sheen and shimmer to fit the trend to a T - a lit-from-within iridescence that doesn’t look glittery nor, over-the-top.
Available in 4 shades, the collection suits a variety of different skin tones and undertones, with each providing a unique yet understated finish distinctly its own to create a radiance that makes skin look healthy and luminescent without appearing shiny. Shades include:
- Incandescent Strobe Light: a brightening opalescent pearl powder;
- Iridescent Strobe Light: a soft pink pearl powder;
- Euphoric Strobe Light: a pearlescent beige powder;
- Brilliant Strobe Light: a shimmering gold powder.
To complement the range, a new dual-ended makeup tool has also been launched to help achieve a professional finish: the Ambient Strobe Light Sculptor. With an angled side to target high points of the face and a super soft flocked side to soften and blend, it’s proven to be just as multidimensional as the powder it accompanies. Both can be used wet or dry to build a more intense highlight where needed, thereby providing an added dose of versatility to suit either day or night.
They’ve proven to be two stand-out highlights in the collection in our books – the reviews are in and, as you can probably tell, they’re positively glowing.
