Product Description

Ambient® Lighting Bronzer fuses the illuminating effects of Ambient® Lighting Powder with bronze pigments to add depth and dimension for a natural, sun-kissed glow. The sheer, airy formula sweeps on softly for a healthy-looking, radiant finish.

FEATURES AND BENEFITS:

• The airy, lightweight bronzers fuse the illuminating effects of Ambient® Lighting Powder with bronze pigments to deliver buildable color and a radiant finish. 
• While traditional bronzer tends to be flat, Ambient® Lighting Bronzer uses Photoluminescent Technology for seamless blending and color transitions.
• The hand-made powders are formulated using an advanced miscelare technique - which means "to mix" in Italian - creating the perfect balance of pigment and powder, and no two look alike. 
• Ambient® Lighting Bronzer can be used alone for subtle warmth and contouring or paired with Ambient® Lighting Powder to create depth and dimension. 
• .39 OZ / 11 G

HOW TO USE:

• Warming - Using the Nº 1 Powder Brush, gently swirl the entire compact to pick up the perfect balance of pigment and powder. Lightly apply all over face to achieve a sun-kissed look.
• Defining – Use the Ambient® Lighting Brush to apply Ambient® Lighting Bronzer as a subtle contour along the temples, hollows of the cheeks and jawline.
• Ambient® Lighting Bronzer works best when applied after Ambient® Lighting Powder and before Ambient® Lighting Blush.
• Explore the Ambient® Lighting Collection to create your perfect light.

PRODUCT HIGHLIGHTS
  • "beautiful product! doesn't apply too heavy or too sheer so is not easy to mess up. definitely not for you if you are a matte bronzer kinda person but i find it looks fab on mature clients and brides as it adds the most stunning glow to the skin. very finely milled and blends beautifully" in 17 reviews
  • "this is my holy grail bronzer. it looks so seamless and natural on my pale skin. it's also so pigmented that you only need a tiny bit each application. i've been using it everyday for almost a year and i've hardly even made a dent!" in 14 reviews

I love this bronzer it's like no other bronzer I've tried b4! It's that perfect sunkissed glow, that perfect balance of barely there darkness and a hint of glow! I love that it's a bronzer u can have as little or as much as u want, u can build it up if needed! This will work on anybody just pick a color range and u will love it! I love that it doesn't make whatever skin problems I have under it look worse or exaggerated! It won't skid on cream if u have like cream blush or highlight on, like no skipping when applying or no toughing on ur foundation! It won't lift ur foundation or any makeup under it, it just graciously glides on seamlessly and looks beautiful! I would recommend to a friend! I am trying out the mini and know I'll be buying the larger size when I run out I love it that much!

Hourglass makes the most brilliant bronzers and blushers. I used to be way too heavy handed with my application of blush and bronzer, and this bronzer from hourglass is such a brilliant mixture of their bronzer and their ambient lighting powder that it next to impossible to be too heavy handed with this bronzer. I absolutely adore Hourglass and think that everyone should have at least one of their blushes and bronzers in their makeup collection. And it is worth the price tag because it will take you ages to hit pan on any of their products. I used to avoid wearing bronzer at all costs (unless I was having my makeup professionally done), because I could never get bronzer to not look artificial on me. If you pick the right shade of this bronzer for your skin tone and use a bronzer brush, I swear that you can get your bronzer to look natural and believable as well.

If you are looking for a bronzer that gives you a beautiful glow that makes you look sunkissed and healthy look no further. This bronzer is also good for contouring. You can build up the color or use a light hand. It is a bit pricey but it is so beautiful. It does have a shimmer to it so if you’re looking for a matte color you won’t like this bronzer at all. It is more illuminating than the NARS Laguna or the Benifits Hula but this bronzer is so beautiful on the skin. I have very oily skin and don’t normally go for super illuminating products but if you go matte with your foundation and blush you can definitely get away with this gorgeous bronzer.

This is SO pretty!  I wish that it was just a tad less warm--I'm very cool-toned and I purchased this thinking that it would be a little on the cool side as well--but even though it's the shade is a little off for me I love it nonetheless.  I think it will be perfect in summer, especially.  The powder itself is so fine and weightless and I love how it looks and feels on my skin.  This is such a beautiful product and I love how each individual pan looks just slightly different.  I'm so happy I purchased this and I'd do it again.  But now I want more...

Don't be discouraged my tan skin beauties! OMG! At first, I was worried it wouldn't show up on my skin but it totally does! Gorgeous on a medium/olive tone, based on pigment probably gorgeous on darker tones too, but this shade is probably too much for fair/light. Make sure to try in on your face and not just swatch it before picking a color. It's PERFECT! Gives the most natural bronzed sun-kissed glow. I love using Luminous Bronze Light for subtle contouring because it blends seamlessly and I also like to use it with the Ambient Lighting Powders and blushes.

Beautiful bronzer that is not too ashy or too orange. There is a subtle highlighter mixed in which really makes your bronze look luminous and not like you have chunky glitter on your cheekbones. While the color is pigmented it is not so much that you are left with a dark streak after one swipe. The pigment is buildable and the highlight doesn’t go overboard after multiple applications.

I love this. It looks like its going to be super shimmery in the pan but when applied it just gives a diffusing glow. The color is buildable but if i add too much i find it oxidizes and turns orange. With a light hand though it is a perfect glowy bronzer. Ive had this for over a year and havent even hit pan so its worth the price and i might repurchase if i dont find a new one to try.

Amazing bronzer! It gives your skin the most amazing “I’ve been in the sun glow”. It looks very natural and the shimmer isn’t too over the top. I frequently will use this alone and forego blush because it looks so amazing. Definitely not for contouring but overall 10/10 bronzer that I would highly recommend.

A flawless finish. I will buy it again, again and again!

Is this overly glittery or is it more of a natural sheen?

I have very fair skin and I was wondering if this would be too orange on me. I have heard very mixed reviews, so I would love to hear from anyone on their opinion.

How many of you have tried this Bronzer in the radiant bronze light. I'm dying to buy it but I'm afraid it may be too dark my skin tone.
