Illuminating powder

This product is a revelation. Bought it on a bit of a whim just because I love all Delilah products - and couldn’t be happier. It gives you a beautiful translucent glow - just as described. I have quite pale skin which can sometimes look a little dull and this gives such a lovely subtle glow. Great product

Perfect Glow

I use Alibi foundation, then tap pure light liquid radiance in Lunar onto the top of my cheeks. I apply a light dusting of Aura illuminating powder over my full cheek and then top off with a touch of Dusk blusher over the illuminating powder (as per Rupert's Tuesday Tip). Oh my word.... I've become vain all of a sudden and can't stop admiring the glow every time I pass a mirror! :-) For a day time healthy glow this is just perfection.

If I could give this product 6 stars or more I would! I just love it, light just bounces if it and perhaps what I love most is it can be seen without using too much product. A true favourite, I will definitely repurchase.

A perfect highlighter to take makeup from day to night, shimmers and lights up the skin beautifully!

Truly beautiful

By far my favourite highlighter I have used, it’s beautiful both on the face and the packaging! I’m on my 3rd now as I love it so much!

Lights up my skin !

It's quite simply incredible! I have it in Lustre which lights up my skin with a soft shimmering glow. I couldn't be without it.

Perfectly flawless

I use both the Aura and Lustre illumination powders and adore both! I sometimes wear together or separate but whatever the day I’m always wearing at least one. A super natural highlight effect that stands out without looking strobey! delilah you rock!!

Best highlighting product ever

This powder feels like silk and it glistens and glows beautifully. It completes any look, as it can be used for subtle or dramatic effect. I won't be without it!

Tried this after the India Knight review in the Sunday Times suggesting it was one of the best products she had ever worn. I have to agree. It really gives your skin a lift, which is much needed as your skin ages and gets 'duller'. It also looks incredibly natural. I would definitely recommend.

Jo, 05 Oct 2017

Just the best powder

Just love this illuminating powder - highlights beautifully giving a real glow. The packaging is beautiful too.

Sarah, 05 Oct 2017


I love my illuminating powder, gorgeous colours and gorgeous packaging. A really luxurious product.

Natural glow

I hate to wear much makeup and have tried many things to just give skin that healthy glow .Finally I have found one that gives the perfect result and leaves skin feeling natural.Thank you

Love this product. Packaging makes the product feel like a real luxury. Gives a lovely, radiant glow all over, or use it on your checks and features for a highlight. I have quite an oily t zone, and this product still really works, gives you face a lovely glow, rather than a shine. A game changer in face powder!

I absolutely adore pure light

I absolutely adore pure light in Aura! It is without a doubt my favourite highlighter I have used. It gives such a lovely glow whilst still looking natural. It feels so luxurious to use with the beautiful packaging and delicate smell. I honestly couldn't recommend this any more. A makeup bag must have!

Best powder ever

I'm not normally a powder fan but having read India Knight's review of this product I put my name down on the waiting list for it (it had completely sold out). Had to wait a couple of months but it was so well worth the wait. It's like no other powder I have used before- makes the skin look glowing and healthy not mat and tired. I shall definitely buy this again-that is if I can get hold of it as I suspect the demand for it will always be high.

Radiance in a pot!

I also saw the India Knight article in the Sunday Times and decided to give this a go, despite waiting for a few weeks. It's beautifully packaged and the product is well worth the wait and the cost. I wear it alone sometimes for a naturally radiant glow but it looks equally gorgeous and more 'perfected' over my usual make up. Highly recommended.

Lives up to the hype

Placed my order with delilah after reading India knights review in the Sunday times and I have got to say this is one piece of kit that I am not going to be without now.Wear on its own or over make up and it gives you the most incredible healthy glow,am going to order another but see that it is out of stock until February and I know why,this product could become one of the all time make up must haves.

Karen marinello, 01 Jan 2016

Fabulous Product!

This is an amazing powder, although it's not a powder in the traditional sense, it's far more than a powder! I agree with all the previous reviews about the glow that it gives to your skin but without shine or glitter. I love it and have disposed of my other powders. Try it and you will be converted! Thanks to Delilah for not only the superb products but the brilliant customer service; I was lucky enough to get this before it sold out and before Christmas and I am looking forward to trying other products in the range.

India Knight was right !

this is the best powder I have ever had the pleasure of using - it makes you look healthy and glowing but without glitter or shine, it gives you this incredible illuminating look. I will be buying again from you delilah, what a lovely brand.

Helena J, 31 Dec 2015


I received my pure light yesterday, i was so intrigued after reading India Knights article to try this product. This powder just makes you glow and look so healthy. I love it and wish I had ordered two. - great review India xx

this is better than ambient light!

every time I wear this people always comment on how well i look, a fantastic product

grown up, gorgeous highlighter

I completely love this and agree with the previous reviewer that it is better than ambient light. It is such a well thought out product, and it's clear that a lot of time has been spent getting it right. It gives the most beautiful glow, but it is a subtle glow not a shimmer/glitter. You can wear it all over (in a similar way to ambient light) to give the skin a really natural radiance, or used on high points as a highlighter. It's incredibly fine powder so looks very natural, the colour is perfect, not to white, pink or yellow. It's a grown up, elegant highlighter for skin that glows. Love it! (and yes it would make a great gift as it's beautifully packaged, though I bought it for myself!)
