does this powder sink into fine lines?
I have fine lines under my eyes, around my mouth (smile lines), and my forehead. I am not sure why but this powder really makes them stand out. Is this happening to anyone else who has tried this powder? Or is it just me? I really love that the powder reduces redness, but I hate how it makes my fine lines stand out.. ;/

on Ambient Lighting Powder
I, too, have fine lines at the corners of my eyes and I don't use this powder in that area. I use it (in color Mood Light) to even out my blotchy complexion, and it does a fabulous job of that. I use it mostly on my t-zone and sides of my face, blending very well and I get the effect of smoothing out irregular tone and blotches. I use a very fine milled finishing powder BEFORE I apply this product so I don't see any need to add additional powder to areas that definitely don't need it. I would use it on my cheeks, but find I don't need it as I use a Nars Luminizer there. Hope that helps.

Me too. It took down some redness but my fine lines and pores looked worse than ever. I returned it. I really wanted to love it but just couldn't make it work.

I think that maybe you are putting too much on. You really only need a light dusting to get the effect.

I cannot attest to the Hourglass powders setting in fine lines, BUT I do have dry skin and a lot of powders often make my pores look enormous. I find the ones with more shimmer (specifically Luminous Light) tend to emphasize pores and other skin imperfections whereas the more matte powders (speficially Diffused Light) don't settle so much. For reference I tend to use the Diffused Light as a setting powder in my t-zone and Luminous Light more as a highlighter. I hope this helps and that this product works out. They are so beautiful!
