I want this

I have had my eye on this ever since it starting making its rounds on the beauty blogs

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder
The main reasons/excuses holding me back:
1. It was yet to be released in Canada when I was in the buying mood.


2. I really shouldn't until I have used up

Guerlain Meterorite Pearls
The reason: correct me if I'm wrong, but I think you can achieve similar end results with both products. This is what I'm assuming since I have yet to try the Hourglass ambient lighting powder.  The only difference that I can spot between both brands is that Hourglass can make you look more flattering in a variety of different lighting. Plus, it appears that Hourglass has more of a high-tech edge.

According to Sephora's website:

The hourglass Ambient Lighting powder:

What it is:
A universal finishing powder that features state-of-the-art technology to recreate the most exquisitely flattering types of light.

What it does:
Create your perfect light. Ambient Lighting Powder is a groundbreaking collection of finishing powders that capture, diffuse, and soften the way light reflects on your skin. Ambient’s illuminating particles are one of the first ever to exhibit both photoluminescence and color-correcting capabilities. The transparent micron-sized spheres with an entrapped diamond core—called photoluminescent technology—do not simply cloak imperfections like traditional powder, but rather, alter and refine the perceived appearance of the complexion by manipulating and filtering out harsh light. Delivering a multidimensional luminescence to every skintone, skin appears softer, younger, and lit-from-within. With six universal shades available, you can choose to create your desired lighting effect—not unlike having a personal lighting technician. Ambient is free of talc, gluten, fragrance, and nanoparticles.

The Guerlain Meterorite Pearls:

Inspired by light and created by Guerlain, Météorites Pearls employ the technology of white light, which is used in photography and film to erase imperfections and soften features. A constellation of 6 multi-colored pearls blend together for a flawless, radiant complexion. These pearls-with-a-purpose have now been reinvented in 3 color harmonies that are adapted to each skintone.

Even though both appear to provide you with flawless skin, I still want to try the Hourglass Ambient Lighting powder. 

Has anyone ever finished a box of Meterorite pearls?
