"the incandescent i use to very elegantly highlight my cheekbones and the radiant light gives a very natural warmth around the perimeters of my face"

"i love love love this it looked great over my by terry opulent in radiant and the finish was lovely and fresh looking"

"on those days i will dust incandescent light on my cheeks, and this is a highlight i am comfortable to put in a large area of my face because it is more natural and does not accentuate my textured skin (i had acne prone skin in my teenage years so my skin is not the smoothest in the world)don't get me wrong, incandescent light still provides a very noticeable glow, but its glitter particle is just much finer than many other highlighters in the market"

No flashback, good for under eye, brightening
All my Dry Skinned Ladies! This is for you !! I will never buy another setting powder but this one lol I mean I may try some but I really don’t think anything can compare to the airbrush finish it gives ! It makes my pores disappear, and I just love it ! I would give it a hundred stars if possible lol #Beautyverse

Glowy, brightening, pore minimizing
I first bought this just because of all of the hype around it and figured I would just try it out. I initially thought I would only use the middle highlight and would find the other two void. Wow, was I wrong. Now, for clarification- My skin tone is not the lightest color but it is close and I have normal to oily skin with fairly large pores around my cheeks to boot. Seems as though all the signs point to someone with my skin type would not be an ideal candidate for highlighting products such as this. I WAS WRONG!!! I can use all three of these and I don't even need blush any more. This gives me the most naturally beautiful glow I have ever had in my life. I use Dim light (furthest to the left) as an all over/contour type with warms my face up beautifully with no glittery/shimmery appearance, just a literal glow. Then I go in with Radiant Light as my blush and its sooooooo beautiful!!!!!!! I could die, it's so beautiful and so natural, I haven't used any other blush since I got it. I then, of course, use Incandescent light as a typical highlighter. And now, all the while, none of this looks crazy shiny/glowy or nothing of the sort. Just that beautiful natural glow from within that even people with oily skin can only hope to achieve. I wear it everyday. But now also, I am using a mattifying foundation underneath all of this which allows me to put a glow where ever I choose and not what my skin chooses. This product is definitely worth it. I take this with me instead of blushes, contours, highlighters... etc when I travel and I never regret just bringing this. Just give it a try. « less

Brightening, blends well, no flashback
I have medium skin tone and I am a true neutral. I have multiple finishing powders from Guerlain, Estée Lauder, Kat von D, MAC and NARS and finishing veil from Bareminerals. The NARS crystal powder imparts a shiny finish to the skin which can look whitecast on some skin tones. This powder from Hourglass is in a a whole different category. It is weightless, blends invisibly and leaves a finish that has an understated luminosity that is your skin but better. Your skin will not look shiny. There is no shimmer, no sheen but rather a true believable skin glow. Unlike the hourglass ambient highlighters that do leave a luminosity or dim to high beam-like sheen depending on which one you use, this powder is a lighter than gossamer glow. It's just so hard to describe. The minor imperfections are erased and the skin is bathed in a light that is soft and radiant. It is a light for your skin, if that makes sense.... there is nothing else like it around. The ingredients do list sapphire powder and diamond powder. This item is expensive and I bought the two-sided brush to perfect the application. Thus I use this powder for parties and special occasions. « less


Compared to other face powders, the ingredients in this product are about as safe as the average product.
