Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Mood Light

Hello loves!

Having radiant and luminous skin is currently in. Strobing has been a makeup craze for months now. Although I don't follow that makeup trend (I have oily skin so I get pretty shiny easily... so I just avoid anything that makes me look even shinier), I still like to add some luminosity some time. Especially when my sister gave me this particular product...

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Mood Light

So yeah, I got this as a present from my sister so I dunno how much and where she bought it. :)

And I think this is my first Hourglass makeup. Hihihi!

Anyway, I'm just gonna post swatch photos. 

I really like the package design. I love the color, the shape, and even the minimalist design of the brand's logo. I also like that it's a compact with mirror. It is a bit bulky though, but I don't bring it with me all the time so no worries. 

Here's how the product looks.

It's a very pale pink that it's like halfway from being a highlighter and a blush on my skin. Check out the swatch below...

See! It's pretty light (you know, like a highlighter), but you can see the "pinkness" of it. It's not pink enough to make my skin look flushed or at least to be considered a blush.

I apply it on the top of my cheeks and the top of my cheekbones. On the photo above, I haven't added my blush and that's how it looks.

I add a marshmallow colored blush, pretty close to the product's shade and it creates a beautiful pale pink glow on my cheeks. I'm definitely loving this finish! 

What do you think of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Mood Light? Do you use highlighters? What product/s do you use?



  1. I also have oily skin and I don't apply too much shimmer on my face. It also makes my big pores more noticeable. On the side note, this one is an exemption. It looks natural on you! :)

  2. Oooo I like the pink tone on you! It definitely has that marshmallow look like you mentioned! I own one blush from them and the quality is amazing although I wish I had gotten another shade.

    1. I wish I can get more too! Gonna save up so I can. Haha!

  3. Ah it's very very subtle no? Di sha yung tipong night event na gusto mo masilaw yung lahat :))

    1. True! Talagang glow lang, hindi shine na nakakasilaw!
