HI everyone! I use loose powder on my face everyday, however, I LOVE "SHIMMER" (glitter-whatever) and I was wondering if anyone had any suggestions of a shimmer-y loose face powder? I am also wondering if anyone DOES use one...have you noticed if it clogs your pores at all? Any advise you can give me would be really super appreciated! THANK YOU! Love, Linda

Linda, I forgot the second part of your question. Hourglass Cosmetics' "Ambient Lighting Powders" do NOT clog pores--they are exquisitely made. If you should decide to purchase and crush, you could not put back in the compact (where was my head?). You would need to put in a suitable powder container, preferably one which also protects the powder from light.

Hey, Linda, I can't seem to find a face powder. When I reviewed for one site, we were all given Urban Decay's shimmering body powder (it was actually edible and came in luscious flavors). It's not on Amazon, but there are a few on eBay. If you want a glowing setting powder, check out Hourglass "Ambient Lighting Powders." They don't have pieces of glitter but, depending on the shade you like, they do all have sheen. I have three--one in "Ethereal Light," an opalescent, sheer cool white; "Diffused Light," a soft, pale warm yellow; and "Mood Light," a lavender/pink which can have quite a bit of color depending on how it's used. "Diffused" light is the most natural. They mask pores, imperfections, and impart a soft radiance. If you are insistent on loose powder (I like them, too!), then simply crush the product and put it the same container or a clear plastic one with a lid to keep it fresh and sanitary. I really hope that helps you.
