Add a swirl of rose gold, soft peach and lavender pink and you have, I think, one of the most perfect illuminators in Delilah Pure Light Illuminating Powder. I’ve tested this one out on my arm and although the swatch pictures don’t do it justice, I can assure you that this is one of the few powders that doesn’t disappear after five minutes. It’s got some rather incredible staying power. Personally, with an illuminator, I’m not looking for sparkle but more a polished, light-hit look.
What you can see in the swatch is that it’s predominantly a warm and soft gold perfect for gleams of light on your cheeks. There is a tiny bit of shimmer, I’d say, but these are just infinitessimal twinkles – the result as a whole is not a glittery one but more a softening fusion. I know that Hourglass Ambient Lighting has a million fans – in my view, the Delilah Pure Light Illuminating Powder is better with an easier texture to buff.
I’m massively a fan of Delilah gloss (their shade Amalie was my colour of the summer) and actually of the Delilah brand as a whole – I think they’re under-rated overall and I’d like to see much more of this brand. As far as price points go, for a newish brand, I think they came in a bit too high – the Pure Light Illuminating Powder is £36 although Hourglass Ambient Lighting is £38. Beauty lovers like to see things being done really well but still competitively priced – only one of those boxes is definitely ticked right now. If you like the look of it, it’s HERE.
