Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best finishing product I use this over my perfect peach foundation and love how it locks the foundation down but provides a subtle glow. I would’ve given 5 stars however I do feel like the price is a little high!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dim light - Easy to use and lasts forever I have been using this powder for 4 years after a recommendation in-store. It provides a flawless finish with just one dust over, blurs the skin beautifully and lasts for ages. Buy the larger size. Worth every penny.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good for very oily skin! I have very oily skin and acne, so for the longest time I avoided these powders because I thought they weren't meant for my skin type. I tried a few out and realised how wrong I was. They make my skin look so healthy despite the acne. They don't emphasise any texture at all. It doesn't look glowy when I first apply it, but after a few hours when my oil starts to break through makeup, these powders make it look like a healthy glow rather than a greasy mess. I highly recommend these to people with oily and/or acne prone skin!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous Great setting powder. My mum and I both love it!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing setting powder! I got this as a gift from my mum as she has the same one in the shade dim light and got me the same. It is so great as an all over setting powder and looks so natural and smooth. I tried the luminous light shade as a setting powder but it was too glittery for me and probably would just use it as a highlighter. I definitely recommend dim light for anyone, it's worth the price in the end for it's quality!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing glow! This is my third time re-purchasing this powder. I have very fair skin and luminous light is the perfect colour to enhance and glow up my skin. I love this produce. I set with MAC Next to Nothing Powder first and then use a large brush to sweep this over my entire face.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Flawless finish! Love this as a finishing powder as it leaves a blurred flawless finish. The best dewy look & cant imagine using anything else!

Which brush would be best for this powder that&rsquo;s not too heavy handed and makes it softly difused? I&rsquo;m finding I have patches with darker spots with the brushes I&rsquo;ve tried.&nbsp;

What is the best finishing powder for my light skin???

Asked by: MaryJohn
I use Diffused Light under my eyes and on the T zone and around the sides of my nose. It's the perfect no colour setting powder, especially if you have lines around the eyes. It gives a beautifully subtle glow and the glitter, although it's there, isn't a glitter as such. It's the only way I can set under my eyes without it looking cakey or like powder. I'd given up powder until I used this. It's simply stunning. I want to get Ethereal Light to try as well. The others are not so much, even if they are beautiful.

Has the formula changed? I had it in the shade ethereal light in the old packaging which was the perfect under eye setting powder but dropped it and broke it. I repurchased it and it has glitter throughout so I can't use it!

I have med-dark warm skin; I match to Nars Sheer Glow - Cadiz and use the Nars Radiant Creamy Concealer - Caramel (perfect). Would dim light or golden light be better? I am looking for a natural daytime highlight - NO sparkle or glitter! Thanks!

do you still have the mini/travel version of these powders in stock? Thank you

Asked by: fanta08
Since I've been shopping at mecca I haven't seen mini/travel versions of the hourglass palettes. Unless you mean the holiday editions? Those are usually smaller as they fit 6 powders in a pan. I think they will come out in Australia in a month or 2!

I have light to medium skin (if it helps I'm shade Deauville for Nars Sheer Glow foundation) so which shade would be best for my skin colour?

Asked by: Jadeee34
I guess it depends how you want to use the powder. I'm similar colouring and I used Dim Light more like a setting powder and some of the lighter shades are a very subtle highlight which can be still used all over the face to give a glow. They aren't very glittery which is why is can be so versatile all over the face.&nbsp;
