    Create the perfect illumination for your face with Hourglass Ambient® Lighting Powder, a collection of finishing powders that recreate the most flattering light. Infused with innovative Photoluminescent Technology, each finishing powder captures, diffuses and softens the look of skin. The micron-size, color-correcting particles refract light and create transparent coverage, filtering out harsh light and refining skin’s appearance.

    Available in six shades:

    • Ethereal Light: opalescent, sheer and cool white powder that mimics moonlit, even in broad daylight.
    • Diffused Light: soft, warm and pale yellow powder that conceals redness and increases clarity like a ray of morning light.
    • Dim Light: neutral peach-beige powder that blurs imperfections and highlights a radiant complexion with the perfect balance of warm and cool tones.
    • Mood Light: sheer lavender-pink powder that mimics the softest, most forgiving light and brightens complexion.
    • Luminous Light: champagne-pearl powder that creates a soft, incandescent candlelit glow—day or night.
    • Radiant Light: sun-kissed golden beige that enhances the overall complexion with subtle warmth and extends a summer glow.

    Benefits

    • Mimics most flattering light sources, from morning light to candlelight.
    • Manipulates and filters out harsh light to conceal  imperfections, pores and wrinkles.
    • Universally flattering for every skin tone.
    • Can be worn day and night.

Diffused Light - Diffused light

Hourglass products have lived up to their hyped!! This highlighter opens in a pretty silver box, good packaging and handy mirror as well! The powder is fine, mineral-like, and doesn't make a mess like loose powder. Transfers really well either from fingers or brush, and lasts all day! I LOVE IT <3 However, having done swatch tests with its other highlighters, I don't really see a difference in it's tones, but I would encourage you to go ahead and try and discover.

Diffused Light - Finely milled, soft focus finish on skin despite microglitter

The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light is an amazing soft-focus pale yellow powder that is great for subtle illumination and brightening of the skin without an obvious strobing finish. It's finely-milled formula blends seamlessly into the skin and does a great job of minimising the visibility of pores. However, a con for some people might be that the micro-glitter observed in the pan does translate onto the skin in direct sunlight. Those with oily skin should also be cautious about applying this to the T-zone, as its main function is not to mattify and can look oily at times.

Ethereal Light - Gorgeous and ethereal

I bought ethereal light, and it gives off a nice moonlit glow. Have to be careful not to apply too much as it will look super powdery and unnatural. A little goes a long way. It has glitter-like particles that are visible as separate entities on its own, but with a setting spray, it makes it more subtle and natural.

Radiant Light - Like all hourglass powders - Fantastic

Im a nc35. It gives a radiance sunglow. Not shimmery at all. I have dim light and diffused light (shows more on my skin). Great for medium to darker skin tone. Lighter skintone would have a flush bronze look.

Mood Light - Another great Hourglass product

I loved this powder, and I use it to set my tinted sunblock. I love the effect it gives -- this amazingly smooth, soft lit complexion. I also love how buttery and smooth this powder feels when you put it on your skin. Just a light dusting will do, so this will go a long way!

Dim Light - Not impressed

I've been eyeing on Hourglass DIffused Powders for so long and finally purchased this - Dim Light after careful consideration. It disappoints big time. It made my complexion appears muddy/ashy. The package is nice & the powder is finely milled, however it didn't live up to my expectations.

Mood Light - Super Pretty!

Ok so i had been wanting to expand my Ambient Light collection since i bought the ambient powder palette and my full sized radiant light. i wasn't sure if mood light would suit me since its of a lavender shade, but as always it was a pleasant surprise when i tried it on! now my daily makeup routine isn't complete without my ambient lighting powders!! its so finely milled and soft that it isn't off the top and goes well for any skin tone! can't wait to try these products on my friends!

Diffused Light - Love it for under the eyes

Used this for my undereye and I love it. Buttery soft and don't settle into the fine lines. I also have the lighting powder in diffused light and the palette. This powder really make a difference to your skin. I don't have perfect skin; have tiny acne scars. I used the dim light powder all over the face and the effect it gives hide my flaws. Remember to use after finishing powder. Once I skipped finishing powder and just use this, my makeup wear off after a few hours.
