Hourglass- Ambient Lighting Powder

I have heard amazing reviews about the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders and was so excited to get my hands on one! The only problem was the really steep price tag! This product over here in the UK is a ridiculous £40 from Space NK. I could never bring myself to buy this purely for this factor. The reviews i have heard have always been amazing so I thought I would splash out when I went to New York! All the makeup in NYC is normally cheaper than here in the UK so I gathered it would make more sense buying it over there with the spending money I had been saving up for the longest time!
First of all I was going to get the trio of the lighting powder as it had a range of highlighters and powders that you could use all over your face but after buying Jaclyn Hills 'Champagne Pop', I decided to just buy the lighting powder on its own. You get alot of product in the pan which kind of makes it a little less painful to splash out on. I honestly don't think this will be running out on me anytime soon!

When I first got this product, I heard it was similar to the Mac Mineralise Skin Finish in Natural which I absolutely love! I got mine in the shade 'Etheral Light' which is the lightest shade I think so it is perfect for my pale skin. I apply this with a big fluffy powder brush. I particularly like the Morphe E2 brush for applying this. I apply it all over my face to give a really glowy look and it really does look stunning. This powder makes you look really naturally radiant, as if it is your normal skin! I find that this powder really does set my foundation in place all day and that I don't have to touch it up! In all honesty, I'm not entirely sure if it is worth the £40 price tag but it is a really nice powder if you do want to treat yourself.

Have you tried this powder, what are your thoughts?
