Review: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette

From left to right: Dim Light, Incandescent Light and Radiant Light.

A limited edition palette featuring three shades of Ambient Lighting Powder, the high-tech, soft-focus finishing powder that features state-of-the-art technology to recreate the most exquisitely flattering types of light. Palette includes one new limited edition shade, Incandescent Light, and two existing, Dim Light and Radiant Light. Includes a 5ml Veil Mineral Primer to create the perfect canvas for your look.

Every now and then a product comes on the market that is an absolute must have. The Ambient Lighting Palette is one of those things.

I first saw the Hourglass Ambient Light Powders on Youtube and fell in love. But I could never decide on what colour to buy, so when they released this palette, it was a no brainer. I had to have it!

The palette contains three beautiful shades, one that is limited edition and two permanent ones. The greatest thing about this palette is that it has multiple uses, which in my opinion makes it much more useful and far better value for money!

Dim light is a neutral peach beige powder than blurs imperfections and highlights a radiant complexion with the perfect balance of warm and cool tones.
This is the one I use all over my face in place of my usual setting powder to give an all over subtle glow. It's also great to use under the eyes to set concealer.

Incandescent light is the limited edition shade and is a pearlescent powder that highlights the cheekbones and brightens the complexion with a celestial glow.
This one I use as a straight out highlighter. It's great on the cheekbones and browbones, and even looks great in the inner corners of the eyes!

Radiant light is a sun-kissed golden beige that enhances the overall complexion with believable, subtle warmth, and also extends a summer glow.
I tend to use this one in place of my bronzer to warm up my complexion, it especially looks good when applied over top of blush. I probably wouldn't use this all over my face, just where the sun would naturally hit.

I managed to order mine off Sephora before it went out of stock, and used Youshop to get it to New Zealand. Doing it this way ended up saving me so much money, as it was a fraction of the cost that I would've paid for it here!

Honestly, this is amazing. If you can get your hands on it, then I urge you to buy it! You will not be disappointed.

Thanks for viewing!
