Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Holy Grail of Beauty Products I bought this in store about 4 months ago. I was hesitant to part with $67 for an illuminating powder but my gosh, I do not regret it! I have it in the colour Dim Light - it's a perfect highlighter and bronzer. You can use it as a setting powder over liquid foundation! So versatile and flattering. I will be buying this again.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous powder and packaging This powder is amazing, I typically use it to set my under eyes or i use it dusted all over my face as a finishing powder. I use the shade diffused light, which brightens my complexion really well.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Mood light works as a blush on pale skin I have fairly pale skin and was looking for a highlighter that would brighten my skin. I was recommended mood light by a sales assistant, but when I applied it at home I just looked really pink. Not wanting to throw it out I tested it as a blush and it works really well.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Holy grail powder I've used several pressed powders and this is easily my favourite. Gives skin a beautiful glowing finish and is great for dry skin like mine! Definitely recommend this.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Unbelievable I've used this powder everyday for over 6 months and have barely made a dent in it, it is so worth the slightly higher price. Beautiful setting powder, gives a soft glow to the skin without looking shiny, a little goes a long way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Diffused Light I Just purchased this little beauty today and all the reviews are true. Sets concealer under the eyes just beautifully.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent Product I made my very first Hourglass product purchase in store a few months ago and it was the Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused light. I have loved it so much I have since purchased Dim light to add to my collection. Diffused light is lovely under the eye area to set concealer and the dim light gives a beautiful radiant overall glow to the skin. Have had many comments on how lovely my skin looks after using these powders. The product is of very high quality, worth the investment IMO.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dim Light - a bright idea I use this product as a finishing powder when I want to add a little warmth and add a "lit from within" glow. It doesnt highlight any flaws and I find that it wears very well. It definitely deserves the cult following!

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

Asked by: MaryJohn
Hi there! Dim light is the most accessible for most fair-medium skin types, however, if you consider yourself quite fair, maybe etherial light as a light dusting (can give off a bit of sparkle) should suit.

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;

Does this powder help with shine?&nbsp;

Asked by: Jen21
For me it does! I use it like a setting powder all over the face and find that it gives me a more matte and airbrushed look.&nbsp;

I have brown eyes and dark skin. (NW43 in Mac Studio Fix) I also live rural so I can't pop into a store for a consult. Would this product be ideal for me? And what shade? Or would I be better off with Sacha buttercup?

Asked by: Widjy
I have dark skin and have both Ambient Lighting Powder in 'Dim Light' and Sacha Buttercup. I find they both have different finishes! Sacha Buttercup will give you matte look and the Ambient Lighting Powder will give more of a satin glow finish.
