or "You look great."...Lovely , soft powder...I usually DO NOT spend tons of money on makeup, basically something I have to be in LOVE with and it needs to actually work and look as natural as possible....wanted a highlighter but NATURAL....with the suggestion of the sales associate I left with this powder in Ethereal Light and I LOVE IT and I BOUGHT THREE MORE a few days later....its my splurge this year and I am happy to waste it on these powders...I have fair skin and purchased Dim light and when I first applied the product I was uncertain of the quality because just looking in the mirror I really didn't notice a difference but then I started playing around in light and took a selfie and that's when I fell in love...my face looked AMAZING
What it is:
A collection of six universally-flattering finishing powders that recreate the most flattering light.

What it does:
Create the perfect illumination for your face with Hourglass Ambient® Lighting Powder. Infused with the innovative Photoluminescent Technology, each finishing powder captures, diffuses, and softens the look of the skin. The micron-size, color-correcting particles refract light and create transparent coverage, filtering out harsh light and refining the appearance of the skin.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens

What else you need to know:
“I learned early on how different types of light can truly flatter the complexion. Growing up, my mother had pink light bulbs in all of the lamps throughout the house. She loved pink light because it was the softest and most flattering, and she always wanted to look good. I used this concept of lighting in Ambient Lighting Powder.”—Carisa Janes, Hourglass Founder

Ambient® Lighting Powder comes in six 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 the overall complexion with believable, subtle warmth, and also extends a summer glow.

What else you need to know:
Hourglass products are 100 percent cruelty-free.

I love this blush...These are the best...When I purchase this product again, I will try a color with a bit more pigment, but this is working well on my pale winter skin...I have not had allergic reactions or other sensitivity to the product except for that brief 5 second tingle I feel immediately after putting it on my face
What it is:
A groundbreaking hybrid that combines the customized lighting effects of Ambient Lighting Powder or Strobe Powder with a spectrum of breathtakingly modern hues.

What it does:
While traditional blush tends to be flat, the Ambient® Lighting Blush Collection uses Photoluminescent Technology to exhibit depth and dimension with seamless blending. The handmade powders are formulated using an advanced miscelare technique—which means "to mix" in Italian—creating the perfect balance of pigment and powder. No two look alike.

The Ambient® Lighting Blush Collection features airy, lightweight blushes to flatter a range of skin tones. Hourglass’s original collection of Ambient® Lighting Blush fuses universally flattering Ambient Lighting Powders with vivid cheek colors for soft-focus, multidimensional color with a naturally radiant finish. The new collection of Ambient Strobe Lighting Blush fuses the illuminating effects of Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder with modern color to brighten cheeks for glowing, lit-from-within color with a shimmer finish.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens
- Sulfates
- Phthalates

What else you need to know:
The optically transparent particles alter the appearance of the skin by manipulating and refracting favorable light. The result is skin that looks smooth, even, and enhanced—not masked. The soft-focus technology helps to minimize the look of wrinkles and imperfections, neutralize discoloration, and emulate the appearance of young, healthy skin.

"Traditional blush can read as flat, and so I was inspired to create something that was far more seamless. The Ambient Lighting Blush Collection fuses two advanced formulas to create something entirely new. It’s unlike any other product on the market."—Carisa Janes, Hourglass Brand Founder

Hourglass products are 100 percent cruelty-free.

its an ok palette, better for darker tone...She loved it too much that she nagged me to buy one for myself...It gives such a beautiful glow on my skin, and when the flash is used on a camera I dont look like a disco ball...I think this would work as a nice skin perfecter for someone who doesn't need a lot of makeup
What it is:
A palette featuring three shades of Ambient Lighting Powder, the high-tech, soft-focus finishing powder that recreates the most exquisitely flattering types of light.

What it does:
Ambient Lighting Powder is a groundbreaking collection of finishing powders that capture, diffuse, and soften the way light reflects on skin. Unlike traditional powders, which merely cloak imperfections, Ambient Lighting Powder utilizes photoluminescent technology to filter out harsh light and refine the appearance of the complexion. The powders deliver a multidimensional luminescence to every skin tone, making it appear softer and lit from within. The finishing powders enhance skin in any type of light, including flash photography. With three universal shades available in the Ambient palette, you can create any desired effect.

What it is formulated WITHOUT:
- Parabens

What else you need to know:
This palette includes Incandescent Light, a shade exclusive to this palette, and two existing shades, Dim Light and Radiant Light. This product is free of talc, gluten, fragrance, and nano particles.

IN LOVE FOR EVER...Gets the job done...I can't even express how good this is, I use it every time I do my makeup, works wonderfully by itself or even layered on top of a different bronzer (I use nars casino) for a finishing touch, this is a staple in my makeup routine...It's expensive and you get a lot for your money, but I rarely use bronzer so I returned and bought a smaller one as I knew it would take me years to get through this
What it is:
An illuminating bronzer with Photoluminescent Technology, featuring bronze pigments that deliver a natural-looking, sunkissed glow while flaunting depth and dimension.

What it does:
Ambient Lighting Bronzer’s sheer, airy formula sweeps softly onto skin for a healthy-looking, radiant finish. It’s formulated with Photoluminescent Technology, featuring optically transparent particles that transform the look of skin by manipulating and refracting light to emphasize your best features. The optically transparent particles allow for seamless blending and color transitions. The powders, blended by hand using an advanced miscelare technique, offer the perfect balance of pigments in a gorgeous pattern. Use this bronzer alone, or paired with Ambient Lighting Powder for maximum control to create depth and dimension—or even use it for a subtle contouring effect.

What else you need to know:
"Most bronzers are flat and look unnatural. That’s where the Photoluminescent Technology really lends itself to the Ambient Lighting Bronzer. It's perfect for creating a natural sunkissed glow. I personally love using Luminous Bronze Light for subtle contouring because it blends seamlessly with the Ambient Lighting Powders and blushes."—Carisa Janes, Hourglass Founder
