This powder is AMAZING for diffusing my large pores in general and I highly recommend it. I'm currently using "Diffused Light" (yellow tone similar to Ben Nye Banana Powder....but better) to set my concealer and to highlight the areas of my face that would normally catch the light. This powder photographs beautifully to make you look like you were in the perfect lighting. The downside is the price however you are receiving a beautifully crafted compact and a crazy amount of pressed powder that will last long enough for you to forget you spent $58 on it. I'd say overall this is a quality product that is finely milled and is perfect for mature skin to give us that dewy glow of our youth. I think the most important tip to using this is making sure you're using the right brush. I use a stippling highlight brush for a controlled precise application to show up exactly where I want it. The price was a deterrent to me prior to actually using it but once I used it and saw the immediate result I was hooked enough to make sure I add each color to my collection.

I LOVE this! I am 55 yrs old and the first weekend I used it I have several people tell me I had such beautiful skin. Not something I am use to hearing!! It gives me a glow but it's not shiny. I feel beautiful when I look in the mirror because my skin looks great. I'm usually not one to spend a lot of money on makeup products. I've used this for months and I still have lots of product to use so it lasts a long time. I will keep buying this even though I think it is expensive.

"Did I accidentally stumble into some good lighting?" Sorry, Clueless reference. I got the palette - comprised of Dim, Incandescent, and Radiant. Dim is a good match for my skin tone, so it adds just a hint of warmth while blurring my acne scars. Incandescent gives a glowy quality to areas I choose to highlight. For a more dramatic highlight, I would reach for something else. Radiant is pretty dang orange on my skin tone. I can't imagine using it to contour, as shadowy areas should contain a) cooler and b) less shimmer (Radiant is very shimmery.) But, hey, ymmv. And with a light hand, possibilities are endless. Packaging is pretty, though I'm scared to drop it. Wish I could buy a cover for it, like I have for my phone, lol.Worth the price, IMO. In a perfect world, Radiant would be replaced by Mood. I have used Radiant as a blush, using a very light hand. Yes, it's $$, but it delivers. I would try it on before buying, however. I apply it with a flat foundation blush.DH didn't notice a difference until he saw me on a sunny day outside and yelled "Holy good skin!" It makes you look good without giving the impression that you tried that hard. I use this over bare skin after concealing blemishes. It serves as a decent alternative to foundation; I just haven't found one that didn't emphasize my imperfections. The cost for a high end foundation rivals the cost of this palette!Finally, it's cruelty-free.

Love, love, love. I purchased Dim light whilst in the US last year after a lot of research and a hasty 2 minute swatchfest in a very badly lit Sephora. Had difficulty deciding between Dim and Diffused and went with the former based on general popularity. Dim is a perfect 'bronzer' for my ghostly complexion and adds a natural looking warmth to my face when applied with a big fluffy powder brush. I've also used this with a more compact brush as a blush. Great neutral to go with a bright red lip for example. I cannot use this as an all over powder though without my face looking a bit muddy.A few months later I caved and ordered Diffused as well, exorbitant shipping fees and all, and fell even deeper in love. This did what Meteorites did not do for me! A beautiful all over glow that seems to decrease some redness in my skin as well. Works with every base I've tried and even on bare skin. I use this with a big fluffy brush, adding a bit more on my cheekbones, bridge of my nose, etc. as a highlight. Lasting power is good, but i have rather dry skin so this is rarely an issue for me. Both powders are very finely milled and they do not look 'powdery' on my dry skin at all, which is often an issue with face powders for me.Packaging is fine, lightweight but closes securely. Price is high but I've barely made a dent in either despite very regular use, will repurchase for sure if I ever run out though. Cannot recommend enough.

I had my makeup done for a wedding at Mecca around a month back, this was one of the products I purchased (in dim light) purely because I was well stocked up on everything else and had heard good things. It lay forgotten in my bathroom until recently when I was getting ready for a dinner date and thought I'd dust a little of it over my face as a setting powder because, why not?Holy mother of WOW. My dinner date complimented me on my skin, the next time I caught up with my Mum she complimented me on my skin and a friend over brunch kept asking me what I'd changed recently because I was looking so damn glowy.Sure it's pricey, but the packaging feels expensive and $62 is a small price to pay to look like I'm permanently basking in the glow of candlelight.

There are a lot of people saying that they look terrible, personally I think they may be applying these wrong! They are amazing powders that make you gorgeously glowy! Don't listen to the people who say don't waste your money, go in and check for yourself. I have quite pale skin and can make most of these shades work, using them one way or another. I would definitely buy again

When I first heard of this product I was so skeptical it wasn't even funny. Like come on, please...a powder that can give you a candlelight like glow without being photoshopped?! I was so skeptical that I knew I had to buy it to prove everyone wrong. So I ran (not walked) to my nearest Sephora and bought it with my Christmas gift card that I just received because I didn't believe, I couldn't believe that such a product existed. And since I don't believe in waiting till Dec 25 to open up my gifts I figured Christmas was coming early for me that year! Upon arriving home after my skeptical shopping adventure, I tried it on right away. I was SHOCKED to see that standing under my bathroom light in the mirror my face looked flawless with a candle light effect on the spots I placed the powder on. I think I admired myself so long that I lost track of time (seriously). I place this powder on the tops of my cheek bones, tops of my eyebrows, forehead, down the bridge of my nose, cupid's bow and chin. You only need a little as it goes a long way.I could not believe this product actually lived up to the hype. In the light it does really give you a candlelight effect which looks realistic. What I love even more about these powders is that it comes in six different colors. According to Sephora's website, the colors are:Ethereal Light: A sheer, cool tone that eliminates shine and mimics a moonlit glow—even in broad daylight.Diffused Light: A soft, warm, pale yellow that reduces redness, eliminates shine, and gives skin clarity.Dim Light: A neutral soft beige that provides a perfect balance of warm and cool tones to blur imperfections.Mood Light: A soft, sheer lavender pink that mimics the softest, most forgiving light and brightens the complexion.Luminous Light: A champagne pearl 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.The compact is larger then normal size on all these powders. It encompasses the whole size of my palm which for a powder is pretty big. I currently only have it in Luminous Light, but I for sure plan to buy all five compacts and test them out under different lighting and events. However, keep in mind that all these colors do not work on every skin tone. Your best bet is to try them out before buying them. Sephora has horrible lighting. So I would recommend you test it first, walk around the mall or store and check it against different lighting. They are pretty expensive so you want to make sure you get the right one that works for you! Even though Sephora does allow you to return items, but still its a hassle to do this!

So I drank the koolaide and gave in after over a year of hearing rave reviews for this product. And I wasn't a fan. And I think that finishing powders just aren't my thing-probably because I have combo to oily skin. I find that I'm oily enough that I have to use a mattifying powder. So I apply my foundation and use a setting powder. To then put a finishing powder on top doesn't really do anything for me and I feel it's completely rediculous to have a whole extra step. I'm pretty sure the finishing powder works better just on top of the foundation but I'm too oily to do that.I got diffused light, a pale yellow powder. The texture is nice, the packaging is nice. It's talc free. All things I love. When I buff it into my skin after foundation, it looks nice but only for a very short time (like an hour). Buffing it on top of a mattifying powder is just silly as you really can't see this powder at all. At the end of the day, this is a very expensive powder that has no lasting power and that I can't tell a difference after I use it. I give it 3 lippies because I consider that an average product. I think if you have dry and or dull looking skin, it may possibly be worth it for you. For me, no. I'm considering trying the luminous one as a highlighter but I will not try any others as all over face powders. I returned this one actually. The NARS crystal reflecting powder is probably my best bet to get a finishing powder because as a silica powder it's really helps with oil control. Of note, I tried guerlain meteroites and they did slightly more for me than hourglass but have talc which made me crazy itchy.

I was really disappointed with this product. I planned to use this as my finishing powder but it gave me sort of a dull, ashy look. It is nothing special, mostly all hype. It is expensive and even if it didn't give me an ashy, dull look, the quality and sheerness of this powder itself is not any better than what I use now, MUFE.Don't waste your money.
