The Hourglass Ambient Powder Brush is a nifty little tool for applying Hourglass’s new Ambient Lighting Powder. Whether you want to spend $35 on a brand new brush just for apply this powder is the real question.
Believe me, I questioned it myself. Ambient Lighting Powder is getting quite a few raves across the beauty bloggingsphere at the moment and it seems the best application technique includes this new brush.
Do you need it?
This is densely packed short handled brush with baby soft bristles. The bristles are incredibly soft however, they aren’t floppy. You won’t want the bristles to flop around when applying the Ambient Powder so the density lends a helping hand getting the powder onto the contour of your face perfectly. I think if you use a bushier brush to apply you might find you’ve applied too much product where as the Hourglass Ambient Powder Brush picks up and disperses just the right amount of powder onto your face.
The brush comes housed in a velvet pouch which you can use to store and travel with.
Makeup is only ever as good as the brushes you use to apply it. Splurging a little on a good brush for application is a make or break situation. Don’t get me wrong I can easily use sponge applicators to apply my eyeshadow however, I wouldn’t give up my blending brush from MAC for the world, it’s worth every single penny I paid for it.
In this case, the Hourglass Ambient Powder Brush is well worth picking up if you’re intending to buy and use the Ambient Lighting Powder. This brush makes application of the powder easy and flawless.
I would recommend grabbing it along with the powder!
It’s available now at Sephora and Sephora.com
