Ambient Lighting Powder
Not my idea of ambient
I purchased this powder from the website after no stores in my area stocked it . After speaking with an advisor on the phone it sounded just what I was looking for.
I purchased ambient light and it makes me look washed out with no other effect. Disappointed. Will stick to buying from store unless a brand I know well.

This was truly the best all-over face powder I have ever used. It gives a wonderful natural glow, it looks dewy and not at all powdery yet it sets my make up. It is not shimmery nor glittery and the most amazing fact about this powder is that you could never get a cakey result. And of course the fact that Hourglass is a cruelty free company is really important to me. Absolutely excellent, I definitely recommend it.

Absolutely worth every penny!
I was a bit skeptical because this product has been so hyped and raved about in the beauty blogging community. However, believe the hype! This is absolutely worth it. I am in my late 40's, have normal/combination skin with some tendency for redness on the cheeks, fair to light skin tone with cool undertones, and I got Diffused Light, as I thought this would be the most suitable. I was looking for a finishing powder, as most of the other ones I have tried make my skin too dull or matte. Whilst I don't want to be shiny, I don't want to be totally matte, either. This powder is fantastic, it manages to set my foundation and give me a glow at the same time. And the glow is not too shiny! I don't know how they do it, it's just the perfect balance. All the redness just disappears and it really does look as though I am surrounded by the most flattering candlelight all day. This is just such a brilliant product, I can't say enough good things about it. I applied the powder with a duo fibre brush, just in the places where I felt I needed it, lightly dusting cheeks, chin, nose. A little goes a long way, and yes it is very finely milled powder, so kicks up a lot of 'dust,' but you don't need too much, trust me. Now that I have a bit of a tan, I may go for Dim Light or Luminous Light, but Diffused Light is just the perfect setting powder for my skin tone.
