Q & As

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 7 reviewers.
Rated 5 out of 5 by Beautiful gift My 19 year old daughter thought this was the best present and it sits proudly amongst her full and varied make-up collection. Really lovely to use and gets top marks. 13 October 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Magic! After a lot of online research (thanks previous reviewers!) and longing looks I ordered 'Dim Light' - I wanted a finishing powder that would set my foundation and give me a glow and just generally make me look better - and I am totally delighted, it gives my pale (the powder colour is lighter than the online photo) freckly prone to redness skin a lovely natural glow without being sparkly or cakey and doesn't irritate my sensitive cheeks..Now I want one of the paler colours to sweep across the top of my cheekbones for extra loveliness! 16 August 2015
Rated 3 out of 5 by Not as Great as I thought I don't like this, although I am using it. The powder is not that fine, and you can definitely see glitter on the skin, when you are in the ligt 22 May 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Must-have product Having read about this product recently I looked for it in store and finally found it in the Kingston branch of John Lewis. The assistant was very knowledgable and helpful and was happy to give me a demonstration on how to use the ambient powder and advised me on the best one for my skin-tone. I was an instant convert! I couldn't believe how much of an improvement it made to my pale January complexion. I like a natural look, and hate to feel I am wearing a lot of foundation but without it can look washed out. Not any more! This product ticks all the boxes for me. 03 February 2015
Rated 5 out of 5 by Lovely subtle glow I have an oily skin type and I use Bare Minerals Mineral Veil to keep the shine at bay, however I don’t like the flat look it gives my skin especially when wearing only a red lip and mascara. I use this to give my skin a ‘lifted’ look and lit-from-within-glow which works perfectly for those special occasions. I have an olive skin complexion and used the Diffused which made me look washed out so I then purchased the Luminous and I look just that! 21 October 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by fantastic product fantastic quality finely milled finishing powder. Now can't wait for more stock so i can buy them all….. ! 04 March 2014
Rated 5 out of 5 by Luminising, subtle, easy to use - excellent finishing powder This Hourglass finishing powder is powder is finely milled and easy to apply. It results in a lovely dewy finish. I am nearly 50 and have some very deep wrinkles which look softened. None of the products has been sinking into them (I do use a primer). Neither have I experienced any caking or dryness - which is an issue I've experienced with other powders. I can use Ambient Lighting powder all over my face and it doesn't look shiny - the reflective quality is VERY subtle but it's definitely present. I have purchased 4 shades of the Ambient Lighting powder and love them all. Using the different shades helps add dimension to my face which is naturally rather flat and round. Mood gives me the prettiest natural blush, Dim I lightly dust all over my face and decollate, Ethereal I use to set and brighten my under eye area, forehead and tip of chin. Luminous I use to add subtle highlighting on brow and cheek bones, nose, cupids bow. I am very fair (NC20) and can easily achieve a natural finish. I have been using these for a couple of months and the pans still look like new so I think they'll last me a long time. 04 February 2014
