Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light

There has been a lot of buzz around the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders since their release, and they certainly deserve all the attention!  Today I am showing you the shade called Dim Light.

 
“Create your perfect light. Ambient Lighting Powder is a groundbreaking collection of finishing powders that capture, diffuse, and soften the way light reflects on your 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 skintone, making it appear softer, younger, and lit-from-within. The finishing powders enhance skin in any type of light, including flash photography. With six universal shades available, you can create your desired effect—not unlike having a personal lighting technician. Ambient is free of talc, gluten, fragrance, and nanoparticles. It is available in six universally flattering shades from least pearl to most pearl.
Dim Light: A neutral soft beige that provides a perfect balance of warm and cool tones to blur imperfections. 
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”
I went into Sephora just to look at all of these powders in person.  I was originally after a different shade but when I swatched Dim Light I was sold.  It was the one that I had heard the least amount of hype, but it was the only one that clearly impressed me immediately.
In real life dim lighting is quite flattering so the name itself already tells you a lot about the product.  The Dim Light powder is a soft beige color that really diminish all of my imperfections and it is quite neutral because it does have warm and cool pigments in it.  It is a touch warmer than my pale skin right now but that is ok because when I apply it on my face all over it really blends out nicely and warms up my face to a happy healthy shade.  I have been using it for a few months and since I started using this powder I have had so many compliments on my “glowing skin.”  They all thing it is because of my pregnancy, and some of it may be but the powder really amps it up.
I know that a lot of people that are on the more pale side use this as a bronzer.  Like I said, it does warm up my face but I use it all over.  I can see how this would provide a beautiful discreet contour for fair to light skin.
Because these powders provide a “radiance” to the skin I want to mention that it doesn’t add a shine factor.  It will leave you looking dimensional, but not oily or greasy.  There is no glitter or sheen to really speak of but it honestly does look like you are standing in great lighting all day!
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Dim Light is amazing.  I give it 10 out of 5 stars.  I know the math doesn’t add up, but that is intentional.  This powder knocked it out of the park for myself.  I have always been a fan of Hourglass products, but this powder makes me want to dive a bit more into the brand as a whole.  This powder retails for $45 and it is worth every penny.  There is a ton of product in the pan (.35 oz) so it will last you so long.  I have used this over and over for a couple months now and it still looks almost new.  The powder is solid but really soft as well.  One swipe provides plenty of product for application.  Packaging, as aways, is elegant!  Love, love, love.
