    Comments about Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder:

    Love this slightly glowing (but not at all glittery or over-done shine), easy to use powder compact. It makes a great finishing product. It's light enough to add a smooth, candlelit finish OVER your trans. loose powder, if you like--I use it this way--as my final finishing product. A clever reviewer before said she uses a darker shade as a natural looking bronzer by buying a couple shades darker--that sounds like a gorgeous idea as well! This powder does not really have "cover-up" properties, so on it's own, it's appropriate on great skin days or when you want a very natural look. Would work great over tinted moisturizer as well, to add a bit more color and glow. Compact is easy to carry in your handbag or for travel, so it's great for touchups during the day. You DO need to provide a brush to apply. I personally use the Laura Mercier finishing brush and I have a mini. finishing brush I take with me in my make-up bag for touch-ups. I think a using a fluffy powder brush with a light touch would also work fine. I would re-purchase this item going forward.

    Comments about Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder:

    I have always been a LM fan and use a wide range of their products. But this product is a perfect, more value for money dupe of the Hourglass glow press powders. In fact I would say they are even better. I wear no.3 in candle light and I am astonished at the results. It projects a luminous glow which I have never achieved before. Absolutely loving the new look and regime thanks to LM!

    Soft luminous finish

    By 

    from Atlanta, GA

    Comments about Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder:

    For reference I am a MAC NC42 and have Oily skin. Smooth texture no acne and moving toward aging skin as I am 40, no creepiness or deep lines yet. I tell you this to say that Luminous foundations look horrible on my skin, they can break up and look plain nasty and gross by mid-end of day. I still love a Luminous look, though. This powder is simply amazing and gives me the benefit of a soft glow , not shiny not shimmer, just lovely. It does not compete with my foundation which I am not into the stick foundations for winter. I purchased 2 of these candle glow powders in #3 for all over my face, I replaced this instead of my MAC mineralized skin finish. I also purchased this in #6 to use more like a bronzer for forehead and around my face. I am in love. No application comes with I use a fluffy brush for all over and a more tapered brush for the darker color.

    This makes my skin gorgeous

    By 

    from mesa, AZ

    Comments about Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder:

    I use very little make up as my skin is quite good. I put quite a bit of moisture and SPF on my skin and let it soak in. If I left my face that way, I would look really shiny. Thus, I put a sheer layer of this on my skin to absorb the shine and my skin looks so gorgeous and very natural

    I like it much more than the Hourglass Ambient lighting powder. This LM powder is a good match to my skin tone and doesn't turn me any different "color"

    I use the #2 and have fair skin with pink undertones. I tried the #1 which is a
    bit lighter with more peach / yellow undertones and it turned me into a ghost

      Q:

      I am fair with a lot of pink undertones. I don't wear foundation. I regularly use your shine control pressed powder with the GREEN tint that cancels out some of the redness. I'd love to try this candleglow powder. Thoughts on which color to choose given the fairness and redness? Thank you!

      • A:

        Great question and I love our Matte Translucent Pressed Powder! For your skin type I would try the Candle Glow Sheer Perfecting Powder in #2 and #3. #2, if you want a glow w/out light bronzer and #3, if you want a glow with light bronzer. The beautiful thing about this product is it is build-able so there's no room for error. :)

      Q:

      Please could you advise me as to what colour I should order for this product ? My skin tone is really a medium foundation. If I have to place an order on line without seeing the actual shade, I would worry that it would not be the correct one? Thank you.

      Q:

      I am having trouble getting this powder to pick up on a brush. Is it something I am doing or should I consider exchanging for a new compact? Love the finish, it just seems to be a lot of work to get it on the brush. Thanks for the help!
      Asked on 12/30/2016 by Ashley from Atlanta

      • CUSTOMER CARE

        A:

        Ashley, You should be able to dust the powder onto your skin with ease using the Finishing Brush. To prevent moisture from getting onto the powder and making it unusable we do not recommend you store it in your bathroom. Make sure your powder is kept in a cool dry place. We recommend you contact the retailer where you made your purchase to see if they are able to exchange your Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder.

      Hello,
      When you normally use the nr1 of this powder for all over the face. I'm very fair i use shell in candlelight foundation.
      Which one of the powders can i take to use as a soft bronzer?
      My feeling says nr5 because nr 4 has a more like a orange undertone.

        An73, We recommend you use Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder light to medium if you are wanting a soft bronzer. If you are wanting more of a medium tone bronzer we recommend you use the medium Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder.

      Q:

      It looks like a very big jump from the light/medium to medium. Medium looks crazy dark. I would be light/medium in the winter but I get really tan in the summer. But the look of medium isn't how my skin looks, and I'm afraid light/medium would be too light. Does medium look darker in the compact but go on your skin in a lighter shade?

        Hi Cindy, I have fair skin and I got the light/med and it's fine - it's very sheer so it just gives you a natural glow. I think the color should be fine on you.

      • A:

        I am fairly light and bought the #2 shade. I hate to look ghostly in the winter. The 2 is just a tad darker than my skin and when I have a just a hint of tan should be perfect. In the summer, I may go up a shade. So I guess in summary, the #2 shade is not ghostly and should work fine for light or light to medium complexions. I hope that helps.

      Q:

      The medium looks crazy dark but there isn't anything else between the light/medium and medium. It looks like a big jump in color to me. Does this just look oddly dark but go on your skin differently? I'm blonde with light to medium skin in the winter but can get very tan in the summer so light to medium is too light in the summer. Advice?
      Asked on 12/18/2016 by Cindy

      • A:

        The candleglow baked powder in my opinion, runs on the dark side. The light
        was too dark for me and I had to return it. In most lines, I am light, but
        there was an orangey/brownish quality to this powder that I felt adhered to
        dry skin and made my face the wrong color. I had to buy FAIR instead. To
        give some reference, I can wear Estee Lauder level 2 in double wear light,
        and also Too faced Nude foundation. So I am not the fairest there is, but I
        had to wear FAIR in the candleglow line. Let me also say that the coverage
        is extremely sheer, so it will not provide additional coverage, but I did
        not want it to darken any dry spots on my face.

        Adriana, if you are medium beige with yellow undertones your colour match in the Smooth Finish Foundation Powder would be 4N1 12 (Medium with Yellow Undertones) your shade match in the Candleglow Sheer Perfecting Powder would be Light to Medium.
