Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder is a universal finishing powder that comes in six different shades. Today I am sharing Mood Light with you.
Here is what Sephora's website say's about the product:
What it is:
A universal finishing powder that features state-of-the-art technology to recreate the most exquisitely flattering types of light.
What it does:
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. Ambient’s illuminating particles are one of the first ever to exhibit both photoluminescence and color-correcting capabilities. The transparent micron-sized spheres with an entrapped diamond core—called photoluminescent technology—do not simply cloak imperfections like traditional powder, but rather, alter and refine the perceived appearance of the complexion by manipulating and filtering out harsh light. Delivering a multidimensional luminescence to every skintone, skin appears softer, younger, and lit-from-within. With six universal shades available, you can choose to create your desired lighting effect—not unlike having a personal lighting technician. Ambient is free of talc, gluten, fragrance, and nanoparticles.
According to the Hourglass website: MOOD LIGHT is a soft, sheer lavender pink powder that mimics the softest most forgiving light and reveals your brightest complexion.

Mood Light looks like a mix of baby pink and lavender with a subtle golden tone. The formula felt very soft and finely milled. You have to be very careful when using your brush because you will pick up too much product easily. I really loved what it did for my complexion. I felt like my skin felt gorgeous for the first time in years. It was really flattering on my medium neutral skin tone. I loved it even more than my beloved Guerlain Meteorites(that's not to say I loved every shade more than Meteorites, just this particular shade). I know they are supposed to be universal shades but I'm not sure this one would look great on very fair skin tones, it may be too pink but it could be used as a blush like I did on the picture above. Again, I'm not a professional, that's just my opinion. I think the best option is to go to Sephora and test them out on your skin tone which is exactly what I did.
