Products:
The texture on these 3 powers is a satin to base with sublet shimmer particles. These powder are dewy in finish however but not high shimmery. 

Incandescent Light is a full one shimmer finish with a Dewy base.

They are also pigmented enough to be visible but sheered out and built up which I also like. 

The product is pigmented however until you buff it out so you could use this as a eye shadows as well with a base as it act alike a lose powder in this regard.

I can see what the sales clerks was using this formulate for highlighter, blush and couture in different shade. the shimmer not so strong that in low light areas you could using it as a contour.


Colour: 
Dim Light is a pale beige brown. it had a satin finish.
Incandescent Light is a shimmery pale pink.
Radiant Light is a warm deep gold/bronze with light gold shimmer.

Wear:
On the cheeks it lasts 14 hours before noticing any fading but the colour is still there after 16 hours.

Packaging:
Gunmetal box and Gunmetal Mirror compact. The compact is really sturdy but the product would shatter easily due to the "baked" nature the product them self. So I'm keeping the palette in the box just in case I drop it. 

I found that the Gunmetal packaging finish of this compact shows off finger prints.

Daylight swatches: Dim Light heavy and buffed out.
Flash swatches: Dim Light heavy and buffed out.
Daylight swatches: Incandescent Light heavy and buffed out.
Flash swatches: Incandescent Light heavy and buffed out.
Daylight swatches: Radiant Light heavy and buffed out.
Flash swatches: Radiant Light heavy and buffed out.


Verdict:
I feel like hourglass need to make a second one of these palettes for deeper skin tone. But there enough diversity for fair to medium skin tone to make this work for individuals and makeup artists. 

If you fair like me try mixing Dim Light and Radiant Light to create a pale girls bronzer. ;)
