Anyhow, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer in Radiant Light ($50) can be made to work for any skin tone. Just use your brush properly because it is very pigmented. I'll have to order the lighter shade, Luminous Bronze Light, for comparison. This purchase had to be the result of one of my sleepy, late-night online trips to Sephora. However, it makes for a nice feature for those with darker complexions than mine.
I took swatch photos in full, mid-day sun, and I used my usual sponge-tipped applicator to apply it. The first thing I noticed is that it is extremely pigmented. I played with it indoors with a fluffy powder brush, and it applied with much less pigment to my face. The color works that way, even on my fair skin.
If this color is good for you, I think you will love Radiant Bronze Light. It adheres to the skin nicely, providing long wear with no fallout. It really is radiant. If you are fair and buy it anyhow, just use your expert brush skills and lightly sweep the brush over the powder to pick up a beautiful, warm, natural-looking tan shade.
You can find Hourglass Ambient Bronzer at Sephora and Hourglass Cosmetics online.
