Hourglass Ambient Lighting powders 100%. I completely used to the Ambient Lighting Palette (it took a year of daily wear) and now I carry the Ambient Lighting Edit everywhere. I always get complimented on my skin, which is actually quite blotchy and dry under everything.
Hourglass is sold in John Lewis, too, and they often do 20% off. I've loved Hourglass ever since discovering Mrs Gloss, but recently joined Beauty Pie. It's mostly a bit tat (the foundation gives me bumpy skin) but the highlighter is the best I've ever used; better than Benefit, better than Hourglass, better than Charlotte Tilbury and I'd even go so far as to say it's marginally better than Becca's Champagne. It's a few pounds, but you have to pay to join; I paid for a month and cancelled once I'd bought a lifetime's supply of highlighter. You can now see me from the moon.
Would have to agree with pp. The Beauty Pie Moonlighting Radiance is extremely good. I have the lightest colour version, and it has become one of my favourite cosmetics instantly. Subtle but improves the look imperceptibly. The brush set is also good, if one is in the market for new ones. Have also bought the fancy moisturiser but will wait a few days before saying too much. The lippies are good too with a decent balance between colour, lasting power and hydration.
