Yes!! I have been SO excited to try out the new Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer. I love the Ambient Lighting Palette and as a fan of glow, the idea of a ‘photoluminescent’ bronzer simply pushes all the buttons going!
It’s a beautiful thing to behold, and I am pleased to say, also beautiful to use and wear. Yay!!
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer Features
- Photoluminescent technology for depth and dimension
- Airy, lightweight texture
- Buildable colour
- Lustrous finish
- Optically transparent particles for seamless blending
As I said, it’s gorgeous to look at and the texture is just gorgeous, but then we expected that from Hourglass Ambient Lighting didn’t we? I love the dual tones the bronzer uses, much like the blushes, and product picks up so easily on the brush and blends on to the skin.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer Shades
There are 2 shades in the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer line up:
- Luminous Bronze Light – medium tan shade fused with Luminous Light for a softer, candlelit warmth
- Radiant Bronze Light – warm bronze shade fused with Radiant Light to mimic a deep golden tan
I have the lighter of the two, Luminous Bronze Light and I think it works really well with my pale skin.

When I first swatched this, I was a little bit worried that the shimmer I could see might be too much on the face but I don’t think it is a problem in the slightest. It doesn’t make my pores look any bigger than they are already, and I love the really natural looking glow.
I make sure I go lightly with the brush (a fluffy one) as it is pretty pigmented, but even if you over-apply, it is quite easy to blend out as the texture is so light. Love it! It makes my skin look just like it has been in the sun, which it hasn’t for a very long time!
