Best Powder Ever? | Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder


I love the dewy skin look, so finding something to set you make up without the matte effect is pretty hard. This is where the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder comes in! It is a finishing powder which utilises 'photoluminescent technology' that emulates flattering light source by capturing, reflecting and diffusing light to improve your overall complexion. They are designed to brighten and conceal imperfections such as pores and wrinkles.

They have 6 different shades:

ETHEREAL LIGHT: An opalescent sheer, cool white powder that mimics a moonlit glow—even in broad daylight.

DIFFUSED LIGHT: A soft, warm, pale yellow powder that conceals redness and gives skin clarity—like a soft ray of morning light.

DIM LIGHT: A neutral peach beige powder that blurs imperfections and highlights a radiant complexion with the perfect balance of warm and cool tones.

MOOD LIGHT: A soft, sheer lavender pink powder that mimics the softest, most forgiving light and brightens the complexion.

LUMINOUS LIGHT: A champagne pearl powder that creates a soft, incandescent candlelit glow—day or night.

RADIANT LIGHT: A sun-kissed golden beige that enhances overall complexion with believable, subtle warmth, and also extends a summer glow.

I was extremely excited buying this because everyone and their mum has tried these out before and I couldn't wait to see how this would transform my skin and me into a goddess. I ended up getting Diffused Light because I have quite a lot of redness in my skin and it promises to give clarity to my skin because who wouldn't want that?

The packaging isn't my favourite as it easily gets covered in fingerprints, which isn't cute! It also feels pretty plastic and cheap, but it does look deceptively expensive...well it is pretty expensive. I had such high hopes for this powder, however it has not lived up to these expectations. It is a decent  product, but with this price tag it just isn't worth it. There are also pretty noticeable glitter bits when you use it and to be honest there isn't much of a difference. Overall, I may try out other shades because I still have hope, maybe Diffused Light isn't the one for me. 

Have you tried the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder before?
