    Create your perfect light with this palette featuring three shades of Ambient® Lighting Powder, which utilize Photoluminescent Technology to filter out harsh light and refine the appearance of the complexion. Each of these high-tech, soft-focus finishing powders recreate an exquisitely flattering light source. The powders can be applied individually or layered to imbue skin with a multidimensional glow.

    Palette includes 3 shades:

    • DIM LIGHT: A neutral peach beige powder that blurs imperfections and highlights a radiant complexion with the perfect balance of warm and cool tones.

    • INCANDESCENT LIGHT (exclusive to the palette): An opalescent pearl powder that brightens the complexion with a celestial glow.

    • RADIANT LIGHT: A sun-kissed golden beige that enhances the overall complexion with believable, subtle warmth, and also extends a summer glow.


    • Powders mimic universally flattering light sources, not unlike having a personal lighting technician at your disposal.
    • By manipulating and filtering out harsh light, powders conceal skin imperfections, pores and wrinkles.
    • State-of-the-art formula delivers a multi-dimensional luminescence to every skin tone, making it appear softer, younger and perfectly lit.
    • Universal powders make them suitable for every skin tone, while each can be worn day and night. *The finishing powders enhance skin in any type of light, including flash photography.

I was liking this product for about 2 weeks. After that the hype disappeared as I do not like the look of my whole face looks shiny. If you only want to highlight for the area where the light hits, the products doesn't give enough shimmer as well.

I love this palette!

I love Hourglass, and I think almost every product this brand produces hits the mark. This isn't any exception. I bought this palette to use Dim Light, which is sold out everywhere. However, I got two additional colours that are GREAT as highlighters for the face. I also especially love them for the body because they contain shimmer particles that are big enough to be seen by the naked eye, and yet do not look overdone.

No regrets buying!

This is my first hourglass product and I must say I absolutely love it! The highlighter is so beautiful that it is able to brighten up with subtle glowing effect. Love to use dim light as an overall finishing powder! Do be careful to use radiant light with very light hand as this shade is pigmented. Definitely recommend this palette as it is super versatile, flattering and long lasting!

If there's one emotion I'd show for this product, it will be an emoticon with 2 heart shape eyes. Yes, this product is THAT good!  I've heard a lot about Hourglass prior to buying this, and the only that's stoping me is....yes, the price tag. Such little product for that price tag is crazy.  However after saving a sum, I've decided to splurge on some items to upgrade my makeup wardrobe and this, was top on the list. I was a bit skeptical at first, as I owned a Hourglass highlighter before this, and it was just a tad too sparkly for me. But after putting it on my face, it just blew me away! Wow! Highly recommended for anyone who likes a subtle glow in the face. LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it. Great product!
