Editor's Review

Dim Light is a light, peachy beige with warm, muted undertones and a semi-matte finish. It's a finishing powder, so it is typically applied at the end of the routine (likely before setting spray, if you use it) to breathe "life" back into the skin, so it has a veil of luminosity that doesn't read overtly shimmery or shiny.

On my skin tone, if I apply this in more pressing and patting motions, it can add a bit of color (like a bronzer). I have also used it as a setting powder, and it does prolong the wear of my base by an hour or two. The texture was smooth, finely-milled, and silky, though a little dusty in the pan. The size in the six-pan palette fits a blush or highlighting brush in it comfortably, but the typical loose powder brush will be too big. It was consistent with past releases of this shade, both in palettes as well as the standalone shade.

By Sam 2 years ago.

I love this finishing powder so much. I'm usually not pulled in by packaging, but the heavy plastic and gold/bronze feels really great in-hand, and makes me feel like it could take a fall. I love the finish it leaves on my skin; with just a little bit of powder, my face is luminous and natural-looking with just a little bit of warmth. Yes, it's pricey, but I also feel like there's so much product in here that it's going to last forever, even if I were to use it everyday. I'm interested in going back for Ethereal Light, also, but I don't think I will until I've put a serious dent in this one. I'm frustrated with myself for enjoying this product so much!

By Kuávsui 5 years ago.

I bought this on a whim while visiting overseas, and while I do love this, I feel that this can emphasize large pores and fine lines despite the claims to blurring them. That said, it excels both as a highlighter and all-over finishing powder and it gives me the most natural, healthy glow.
