Figuring Out The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder Palette

To say the hourglass ambient lighting powder is a hit product in 2014 is an understatement.

So guilty as charged, I’ve hoarded some, OK, a load of products I REALLY should have thrown away already.   The other day, after reading this post on CAREER GIRL DAILY, I decided it’s time to get my sh*t sorted out! After all, as it says, your skin deserves the best, and… of course fresh products. I’m writing this as…
