    Hourglass - Ambient Lighting Powder

    Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder Reviews

    Beautiful
    I love these powders; I think they give you beautiful glowing skin but it isn't something that really shows up. It's really subtle. I don't know if I think it's worth the money but I definitely think it's beautiful.
    Holy grail
    Hourglass powders live up to the hype, and then some! The packaging and product quality are pure class, the application process super breezy and they make the skin look dewy and gorgeous. Do understand these are FINISHING powders, so apply them after you set your makeup. They blur any lingering imperfections and/or cakey skin. Moreover, the effects last on your skin the entire day (or night). Do not hesitate to get your hands on them - your skin will thank you for it!
    Amazing
    Beautiful powder! It has a flattering rose color that somehow makes skin look more bronzed and healthier. Like all ambient powders, it lends skin a satiny, glowy - but not glittery - finish. By far the best powder I've ever used.
    Way too drying - did not suit my skin type
    Really clung on to my dry patches and made them worse. Did not see it as illuminating at all, my Becca soft light blurring powder is much better for my skin type. I have combination/dry skin.
    HG
    Great product, gives a wonderful glow to the skin without being glittery, bought get two shades but considering more!
    HG best
    Best powder ever!
    Very good product
    Love this product.
    Give star review
    Lovely subtle powder that gives face a slight illuminating sheen. Brilliant for dry skin as it doesn't look overly matte or caked on.
    Love it!
    I am using the shade diffused light and I put it under my eyes to set the concealer, bit on my cheeks and forehead. It gives a very nice glow and sets foundation/concealer as it is my own skin not makeup. The most important thing that I like about this powder, is that I don't feel it on my face and it doesn't get cakey.
    Brilliant
    Absolutely the best powder I've ever had! My skin looks divine.
    A must have in your beauty bag!
    I was looking forward to trying hourglass products and it was a rewarding experience. Love this “smart” finishing powder that works on delivering the “lighting” effect. It is ideal and gives a luxurious finish. I loved ethereal and diffused light (similar but it’s all about the details), not too keen on dim light though (best try if your skin tone is medium or darker) alternatively I am using it as a natural blush! Luminous is good too (it is slightly darker too) but works well even in fair skin tones as it adds a slight touch of the “sun-kissed” effect but as subtle as it should! All in all a “classy” product! The packaging doesn’t disappoint either! If you are considering going for the small one-don’t! It’s not as user-friendly if aimed to be used as a powder and you will repurchase sooner rather than later!
    Perfect glow
    Perfect natural glow on skin. I love it ❤️
    Hourglass ambient lighting powder
    A beautiful product, nice natural tan to your face.
    Overpriced
    Sure its a nice powder.. but I feel it doesn't do enough of anything to be worth an eye - watering 42 pounds! I feel your money would be better spent on other high end powders.
    Best finishing powder
    I have gone through 3 of them (Dim light) so far and the finish it gives is soft luminosity. I'm not sure if it's a great setting powder or it evens the skin but it really gives an undetectable luminosity just for that extra oomph. It doesn't cake nor crease my makeup and a little goes a long way. It's my holy grail and I'll never be without it
    Good finishing powder
    I have the diffused light. That one doesn't really show up on the face visibly. I just use it as a good finishing powder. Keeps my mascara from smudging. Never cakes. Really light. I have no reason to try any other setting powder.
    The Product you need
    I love a no-makeup look and this powder is perfect for that. It subtly evens out the skin tone for a very soft look. The glitter is there but you can't really see it unless you get ultra-close, it actually just makes your skin look radiant and more uniform. Killer!
    Perfect powder
    Dim Light is my favourite powder to use, I use it all over the face and it adds a beautiful glow without making my skin look oily. It feels light, silky and is undetectable once applied, it does not add texture and blurs away any pores or blemishes.
    Beautiful powder for dry skin
    I have eczema and I find it hard to get powders that don't highlight that but this does the job. I have diffused light and I find it suits my palest of pale complection. They do give you a glow which if you are not into that then I wouldn't purchase. The are expensive but the packaging and product make it feel worth the money. I have found Cult Beauty to be the most affordable place to purchase Hourglass.
    Amazing
    Love these powders! I have dim light and radiant light. They give your skin the most beautiful glow.
    New favourite product!
    I absolutely love this! It makes my skin look radiant, without exaggerating any texture.
    Absolutely love these powders
    I have used these Hourglass Ambient Powders since they first came to the UK and absolutely love and adore them. I love the fact that they last ages. Yes, they are pricey BUT the full size will last you ages. I love using these after I have put my foundation and setting powder on as they give a lovely glow. These are definitely not powdery and give your skin a natural glow. You also do not need to use much. I love using the Diffused Light when I get a bit of redness on my skin as if really does the job of diffusing the redness, I love the Mood Light when I am looking a bit grey due to not feeling great as it really lifts your skin, the Dim Light is a great allrounder. Luminous and Radiant Light are great at lifting your skin also and can also be used as a subtle highlighter. The other great thing about these are they do not make your skin look like you are a glitter ball either. I think if you used the Ethereal Light all over your face you might look a bit glittery so personally wouldn't use that all over. If you want to use the Ambient Powders all over your face the best ones to use in my opinion is Dim, Diffused and Mood Light. These powders last all day also (especially with a good setting spray like Urban Decay or Skindinavia) I find that after about 12 hours my make up still looks great, fresh and I have a lovely subtle glow. One of these lasts me between 6-12 months and that is using it 4-6 days a week. You only need a light dusting as these are a finishing powder and NOT a setting powder. I really love these and hope they NEVER stop making them.
    Nice, but not my thing
    The formula is lovely, but I can't believe I invested this much into powders when I don't really wear any (much prefer creams and liquids). I like Dim Light especially because the pink hue makes you look fresh-faced and airbrushed, but Candle Light is a bit lacklustre.
    Love it but allergic
    Beautiful powder but I came out in small spots over my full face. So expensive too.
    great, not magic
    nice illuminating effect and makes the skin lively, but not so blurry as expected.
    HG
    I have stopped using foundation since I start using this powder. I just do my skincare and swipe this all over my face. At first it seemed like it is doing nothing, but as the day goes my skin is looking dewy, my imperfections are less visible and the skin over all is looking much healthier. I hate the word “holy grail” because everyone is using it, but this powder is my holy grail!
    OMG!
    I have "Diffused Light" and it actually covers my redness WOW! The look that it gave is sooo soft! And it helps to matify my combination to oily skin without make it look cakey! I think is good for all skin types, because it won't dry out dry skins. I simply love it, is a HUGE game changing in my make up routine. I would buy other tones as well. Totally impressed!
    Mood Light
    I own 'Dim Light'. However, I found I looked too red whenever I caught myself in the mirror even with the lightest application and using an Hourglass brush. So I tried it as a blusher and it is perfect for a daytime natural look on my very fair skin. It also combines well when layered with 'Brilliant Nude' strobe blush.
    Natural and glowy effect
    If you're looking for natural and glowing effect, this is the answer. It's not blind highlight. Doesn't emphasize pores.
    Geweldig.
    Zo subtiel, heel mooie. Top product. ***So subtle, very beautiful. Top product. ***
    Glitter
    I purchased ethereal light thinking it would be like the matte powder in the ambient light palette but lighter. The shade is ok, but there are tiny bits of glitter in it and I just can't stand that stuff. I wish there were a way of telling which shades had glitter and which didn't.
    Best finishing powder
    I received this makeup for Christmas and absolutely love it.
    Dim Light
    I'm wearing it over Chanel Vitalumiere. I prefer more of a dewy finish, I think matte finish makes me look older. This one blurs a bit but my skin still looks luminous.
    Perfection!
    This is perfect for that luminous natural glow. Best finishing powder ever!
    Dim Light
    Love this finishing powder, I use it on its own and its so nice, a nice fresh look with a little bit of glow. its genius that it has the blurring effect
    Perfect for glowing skin
    I love this powder so much! It really does look like the most flattering lightning is illuminating your skin. I have dim light and it's a subtle glow but makes a big difference in my make-up routine.
    Lovely Finishing Powder
    I took an age to decide on the colour to go for, (I'm Light-Medium Sand), in the end, I went for Diffused Light, (veeeeery light) and Dim light (perfect). I can't praise the 2 powders enough. I use them for finishing, the Diffused anywhere I strobe and the Dim on my forehead, jawline etc. They give a subtle glow and create an almost soft focus effect, completely different from my usual Charlotte Tilbury Flawless Finish. BUT be careful girls, on a recent night out I caught a glimpse of myself whilst sitting in the bright sunshine. To my horror, the subtle glow had gone and my face looked like a glitter ball. I made an excuse to drag husband to a shaded area where the desired look, was resumed. Lesson learnt: Apply sparingly during daytime and leave the Insta level of the application until after dark!
    Worth the hype!
    I had watched so many make up reviews of these powders on YouTube and felt safe enough to believe it was worth spending the money on them. I got 5 of the 6 original Ambient lighting powders (every one but the radiant as I'm very pale). They arrived today and I have tried all 5 on my face. Genuinely surprised that the hype is actually very accurate! They really do make your skin look exactly like the lighting conditions described in the name. At one point I even tried diffused light on one side of my face, and ethereal light on the other half - no joke...each half of my face did look like it was in morning light and moon light respectively. Was also worried dim light would be too dark, but it's not at all...it just makes my skin look blurred and a bit more naturally sunkissed. Mood light is an excellent blush topper or full blusher if you use more; you can use it over entire space if used more sparingly, and it looks very romantic. Luminous light is a stunningly pretty lift with the most glow, but it's also subtle enough to just make you look really healthy. Totally worth the cost!
    Рекомендую! ***I recommend!***
    На светлой, славянской коже оттенок Дим лайт очень даже сильно проявляет сразу после нанесения свечение. Оно несколько неуместно для дневного времени суток. Продукт для вечернего макияжа и для съёмок ***The shade of Dim Light is very strong even after the application of the glow. It is somewhat inappropriate for the daytime. Product is good for evening make-up and for shooting.***
    No-powder powder
    I'm on my third compact of Dim Light and will continue to repurchase. It's meant to be a finishing powder but I set my makeup with it and have found no issues. If anything, it leaves a very subtle and healthy radiance/sheen. The powder is undetectable and holds true to diffusing light off the face. Love this powder!
    Fab
    Love these powders I have ethereal and diffused light they set makeup really nicely.
