LOVE it! I've used so many powders and this is just the best i have ever come across. To start with, i use copious amounts of this and it never seems to run out (so far). Secondly, it just adds such a nice finish to your foundation. It is not a heavy powder, so you'll never look cakey with this one like you can with others. It just goes on so smoothly and subtly. Another bonus is that it sets the foundation at the same time as evens out your foundation. It also gives it a more natural look. I would highly recommend anyone to try this!

I've had this particular shade since it's release and at first it was great but I noticed that when I get darker during the summer this isn't a great fit as my skin appears flat and ashy gray. Not ideal at all. I originally was using it all over and then resorted to undereye area as a setting powder for concealer. For reference I'm a nc45 range in MAC and golden in Bobbi Brown. I will retiring this out my makeup stash because ashy and flat is not a look I'm going for.

Where has this been all my life?? I didn't buy into the Hourglass Ambient Lighting powders for the longest time. Seemed kind of gimmicky to me and like they really wouldn't do much. I was so very wrong. I decided on a whim to pick up Dim Light on a recent Sephora outing. I figured if I really didn't like it I would return it, no harm no foul. That was 2 months ago and I can now say this powder will be in my vanity for ever and ever. It's very finely milled, smooth, silky and just a touch dusty in the compact. But on my face it's magic. I use it as an all over finishing powder, just a light dusting. And my face just looks better. Everything kind of smooths out, my pores and fine lines aren't as noticeable. It has a slightly luminous finish but no actual glitter that I can detect. The effect is subtle for sure, so if you're expecting miracles you won't be impressed. But if you want a bit of smoothness, a bit of glow, and a touch of blurring of lines and pores this is for you. Also, this shade just about matches my skin tone so that might be another reason it works so well for me. My mom actually commented on my skin just the other day, she said it looked very smooth and glowy. And I don't have great skin so I don't hear those kinds of comments often. This powder is a winner in my book.

I cannot live without this. I'm old and wrinkled as god and this powder makes my skin look ten years younger. I wear it as a finishing powder - sweep it on, and then let it sit while I do my eyes and brows. I dust it under my eyes and across my temples and tzone. Then I dust off any excess with a huge brush and my skin looks like I'm in my 30's again.If you are a woman like me, of a certain age - this is a godsend. It somehow blurs fine lines and gives you a lovely firm look to your skin. You can go overboard with it though and look very shiny but I had to really pack it on in order to look like a disco ball.I'm also impressed by how long it seems to be lasting me. Using everyday generously, I've barely made a dent so I guess the high price is actually cost effective.

I bought this in the travel size as I very rarely use the same product to pan. Its a very nice finishing powder that blurs out some imperfections and smoothes out the skin. It's a very nice product.

I was put off by the price so got a tester off ebay. Damn. I love it! I'm 45 years old & although my skin's in pretty good condition with few wrinkles. Lets be honest , its not what it was. This stuff makes me look like I've been on holiday to a spa resort. With no kids. 10 hours sleep a night. 8 years ago! My pores look refined & my skin looks even toned. Just what I was looking for..

I couldn't justify paying full price for this, so picked up a travel-sized version the last time I was in Sephora. And boy, am I glad I did!I must be the only person on the planet who just doesn't get the hype surrounding this product. I've tried using it in a variety of different ways - as an all-over face powder, as a highlighter for cheeks and/or brow bone, to highlight 'key' parts of my face like cheek bones and bridge of nose - and every single time have come away thinking the same thing. I just don't get it.This literally does nothing for my skin. It doesn't give it any discernable glow, it doesn't really show up as a highlighter and if I use it all over my face, it just gives me a weird colouring that actually looks like jaundice!Maybe I'm not using it correctly? Maybe it's my skin type? Maybe it's like a lot of these products which seem to get hyped up on YouTube - the people reviewing it are paid to say great things in order to shift units? Whatever it is, it's definitely a case of the 'Emperor's New Clothes' for me - everyone around me is saying how beautiful it is, but I just can't see what they're seeing.

I don't really use powders much these days as I get older because I find they can accentuate any dryness and make fine lines look worse, however when I need to use one I now actually use this as a face power not as a highlighter. It's glowy without being shimmery or sparkly. It adds a very nice sheen to your skin instead of the dead flat matte look. I am NW20-NW25 an find the colour perfect for a light sweeping across the face. I also use it if I have gone overboard with a shimmery highlight to tone it down a bit and make it look a bit more natural.

I originally got Dim Light in the Ambient Lighting Palette & at first was skeptical it would be too dark as a setting powder for my very fair skin. I took a swirl on a powder brush & dusted it lightly over my entire face after applying my usual makeup. All I can say is this powder is incredible! A definite favourite & I'm still using it years later. It gives the skin an almost airbrushed look, blurring pores & can also be used as a bronzer if applied a little heavier on the cheeks for fair skin. Also very nice as an eyeshadow- definitely is a multi use product which I love. If you're on the fence about this, don't be, it's a great item to add to your collection & lasts such a long time.
