Last week, I gave you a preview of my Sephora VIB Rouge mini-haul. On top of my must-own is the newly-launched Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer. There are two shades available, Luminous Bronze Light (fair/light) and Radiant Bronze Light (medium/dark). I picked up the latter, which according to the website description, flatters medium to deep complexions. If you own any of the Ambient Lighting Blush (I reviewed Mood Exposure and Diffused Heat), you will notice stark similarity in the presentation.
Heftier with more product, hence pricier than the blush ($50, 0.39 oz/11g vs. $35, 0.15 oz/4.2g), Radiant Bronze Light is golden beige, very warm and deep to be more succinct. It has bronze satin finish with gold micro shimmers, which similar to the blush, renders subtle luminosity if applied correctly. With that said, start and blend with light strokes because it may come out orangey against the skin if you go overboard.
Do you own a similar shade? Here is Radiant Bronze Light in comparison to some of my favorite bronzers (reviews are linked). You can see that Hourglass tops the vibrance department so listen to yo’ mama, apply modestly or you risk looking oompa loompa.
