Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Diffused Light Review
Hourglass Lighting Powder in Diffused Light is a permanent shade on the Sephora website. It contains 10 grams and retails for $45.
Overall, I think it's nice but not an everyday use for me since it is so pricey. It is a good product for taking photos, that's for sure! Hourglass powders in general are consistently sheer and should not be relied on for "full coverage" or any coverage at all. This specifically is used to help blur imperfections and helps soften harsh lines or imperfections on the face. It does not control oil nor does it "cover" imperfections. It does however, say what it says it does and works exactly how it should. Too much of this dusted on can leave a white cast on the face on most people, depending on how fair or dark you are. I personally use this over Estee Lauder's Double Wear Foundation which is a full coverage, matte finish foundation. When I pair that foundation with Diffused Light, I end up with a slightly dewy finish. Not shiny or even slightly oily at all. I think I would call it a "settled iridescent glow". That's the best way I can describe the finish of this powder lol. Yes, a "settled iridescent glow". It has tiny, TINY little micro shimmer that helps reflect light beautifully. I didn't notice any creasing or settling into fine lines which is really nice considering how light and thin this powder applies to the skin. I really enjoy this powder but I don't wear it everyday because of the price and depending on the occasion. It's not entirely necessary but it does give the face a little something special.
