You are likely aware by now that I really love the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders based upon my review of their Ambient Lighting Palette and their Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light. You might think that this would quell my desire to collect more of these beauties, but in fact the opposite is true. I have been so elated by the quality, texture and finish of these radiant gems that I couldn't help but run out and purchase Mood Light as well. And yes, I want a few more!
According to Hourglass,
Mood Light is a soft, sheer lavender pink powder that mimics the softest most forgiving light and reveals your brightest complexion.
• Powders capture, diffuse and soften the way light is reflected on skin, brighten the appearance, and conceal skin imperfections, pores and wrinkles.
• Infused with technologically advanced soft-focus particles that help make skin appear younger, even-toned and radiant.
• Unlike traditional powders that use opaque pigments, Ambient utilizes “photoluminescent technology” – micron-size spherical particles that refract light and create transparent coverage.
• Universal powders make them suitable for every skin tone, while each can be worn for day and night.
• Free of parabens, talc, fragrance, nano-particles and gluten.
Mood Light is indeed "a soft, sheer lavender pink powder, that mimics the softest and most forgiving light...." I find that it is the perfect color for my cool-toned complexion. One might think that it would be too lavender or pink to dust all over the face, but I find that it works beautifully in this capacity. It boasts a nearly matte finish with a very subtle and refined sheen that effectively brightens and illuminates the complexion. It reduces the appearance of redness and gives the skin a very even and flawless finish. I have found that it leaves my skin looking naturally glowing and healthy. Every single time that I wear it people comment on my beautiful skin, and while my skin is in very good shape without makeup there is no question that Mood Light gives me the highly coveted "My Skin but Better" appearance that we all seek in finishing products. I also like to use Mood Light as a highlighter when I don't feel like dusting my entire face, and it offers a subtle beautiful glow in all of the right places. The texture of Mood Light is just spectacular: it is soft and silky to the touch and ultra-finely milled, and it effortlessly glides across the skin. It is truly powder perfection incarnate!
