How I wish this was available as a full-sized single product. I have it in the trio of powders and it is by far my favourite and one I would love to repurchase on its own, if only I could. This gives the prettiest, most flattering “lit from within” finish to my face when I dust it over liquid foundation as a setting powder. The sheen is subtle and flattering.
Incandescent Light is described as a “pearlescent powder.” It’s a pale, light beige with neutral undertones and a soft ivory shimmer. It’s a bit different from the other Ambient Light powders, because it is a lot more shimmery, and Hourglass is positioning it to “highlight cheekbones and [brighten] the complexion with a celestial glow.” It works well for illuminating the skin where it is applied, and the shimmer doesn’t emphasize pores or make the skin appear oily. Urban Decay Naked (P, $29.00) is more sparkly. Kevyn Aucoin Candlelight (P, $44.00) is similar but a smidgen warmer. NARS Debbie Harry Highlighter (LE, $29.00) is lighter. See comparison swatches.
