I'm interested in trying the Hourglass ambient lighting powder in either diffused or mood, or the Guerlain meteorites. Which would you recommend? If your choice is meteorites, which color should I get? Are these products too similar to justify getting both?

I have pale skin with a slight olive undertone.

Another question I had regarding both products, how long do these wear? Given the price of them I would not want to be carrying them around. Are they both something that would need to be reapplied often throughout the day?

I have the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette and the Emilio Pucci for Guerlain meteorites. Personally I use them for completely different reasons.

-The Meteorites I use to highlight, otherwise I feel my face can look a little too glowy if I use it all over.

-The Hourglass powders I use as a setting powder, they are wonderful. I wore a mixture of two (Dim and Incandescent) for New Year's Eve and it lasted from 6pm-2am, no shine came through! I just had a natural soft look with a teeny bit of sheen from a highlighter I used.

If I had to choose between the two, I would go for the Hourglass powder. But I can't say they're meant for the same purpose (just my opinion), so I wouldn't necessarily compare them :shrugs:

Thanks for your reply! I ended up splurging and getting the hourglass in diffused and the meteorites in 02. Can't wait to try them.

Glad to hear about the ambient powder lasting so long.

I just ordered the Meteorites last night - I am very excited to try them! I have not heard of the Hourglass powder... I am going to check it out!


I hadn't heard of meteorites until I started researching what ambient lighting powder to get. The were often compared in reviews. From my understanding the meteorites I ordered would be most like the mood powder. I'm excited to get them. They should be here Monday.

I haven't tried the meteorites (but I'm dying to!). I got the Hourglass ambient lighting trio, and LOVE IT. The combination of the three powders works perfectly for me, and it gives an airbrushed look to my skin. I top everything with a setting spray, and it lasts all day.

I've found with both that I don't like the way it looks when I put them all over my face. I use them as highlighters on my cheekbones. They are interchangeable to me. I could have just got one.
