I've been wanting to get my hands on this for a while and I'm not disappointed. I have never tried the hourglass powders but before I even knew they existed I wished that they sold a powder that would do exactly what they do, when I read about them I was a bit disappointed at the price, even though I am positive they are worth it as you can't beat a natural looking powder that gives you a natural sheen that also blurs imperfections and I've been wanting something like that for ages so yes, after reading about them I began the hunt to find a dupe or something very similar that was cheaper and I have which I'm really really so happy about, this and makeup revolutions radiance pallette are really good dupes.
This just gives a lit from within look to the face, the colour looks very pale but if you just dust a tiny bit all over your face even with a tan it doesn't make you look any paler, or if it does it's hardly noticeable, it's a very soft powder and applies beautifully, it's not too warm or too cool either it's just like magic powder lol, perfect for my 33 year old skin!, it just brings my skin back to life. It almost gives a soft focus finish aswell and blurs fine lines and wrinkles or pores, it doesn't hide them but it does blur them. It works very very subtly, but that's the point and exactly why I like it so much. I don't know why they called it a bronzer as it is definately a finishing powder, if you want to find out more about the effect this gives read about the hourglass ambient powders because that's exactly what it does. I have oily cheeks and pores and so I just put a translucent soft focus setting powder on my cheeks first (after foundation) and then I dust this all over my face and it looks gorgeous. So glad that I found this
