Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders - Diffused Light & Dim Light

Hello everyone, I hope all is well! Today, I finally have a review of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders for you all. These powders were one of the most talked about powders in the blogosphere world when they first released. I, not surprising, bought into the hype and I can't say that it was worth it. Anyway, let's get onto the review...

What is it? Create your perfect light. Ambient Lighting Powder is a groundbreaking collection of finishing powders that capture, diffuse, and soften the way light reflects on your skin. Unlike traditional powders, which merely cloak imperfections, Ambient Lighting Powder utilizes photoluminescent technology to filter out harsh light and refine the appearance of the complexion. The powders deliver a multidimensional luminescence to every skintone, making it appear softer, younger, and lit-from-within. The finishing powders enhance skin in any type of light, including flash photography. 

Diffused Light: A soft, warm, pale yellow that reduces redness, eliminates shine, and gives skin clarity. 
Dim Light: A neutral soft beige that provides a perfect balance of warm and cool tones to blur imperfections. 
- amazing texture
- softens my whole makeup look
- makes my skin feel super soft

- my constant need to touch up (it's not advertised for oil control, so I guess I can't say much... but fellow beauties with oily skin beware!)

Overall, I'm on the fence about these powders. I use both powders to set my foundation, but I find myself reaching for Diffused Light a lot more than Dim Light. Not that I prefer one over the other... Dim Light just happens to be in my makeup bag. All in all, I don't think these powders are worth the hype. Although the texture is amazing, I don't find it a necessity for everyday makeup.

If I ever manage to use up some of my powders, I will continue my search for the perfect finishing powder.

Have you tried these Hourglass powders? What do you think of them?

Thanks for stopping by!


  1. These are rather pricey, so I've held off on buying them but I've heard from everyone how soft they make your face look. I really want to try these out, even more so after your review!
