As its Monday morning I thought I’d share a review of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit with you to brighten up both your day and completion!
Firstly What a BEAUTY! Packaging alone and how perfectly it fits into the palm of ones hand is enough to excite. This was part of the Hourglass limited christmas collection but it can still be found in the UK at Netaporter HERE.
This is a great palette for a bit of everything featuring,setting powders, blusher, bronzer and what I would consider a highlighter.
Housed in a sturdy golden outer case with a large mirror on the inside the 6 shades sit so beautifully bellow you will stare for quite some time before each and every use.
TOP ROW (left to right)
Dim Light – helps blur imperfections, I would say its a warm peach and I use all over the face to set makeup and give a beautiful glow.
Irredesent Light – This is the limited edition shade a soft pink strobing powder that can be used to highlight the high points of the face.
Diffused Light – a white/yellow powder I find great for setting under eye concealer or any redness on my face.
BOTTOM ROW (left to right)
Mood Exposure – A soft plum blush that looks rather mauve on the cheeks. A great colour for any everyday look.
Luminous Flush – The second of the two blushers, a champagne pink that gives a very pretty pink warm glow to the cheeks
Luminous Bronze Light – Again a candle lit shade I’d say with a rather honey looking finish on my complexion. Beautiful.
I really want to avoid but know I should not for a complete review of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit. We need talk about the price and value for money this palette is. (or isn’t)
At £65 and then some with postage it’s pretty pricy. The total weight of powder is 8.4g which is less than an individual powder (10g) priced at £27 cheaper than this. But If you love makeup and are an avid collector or enthusiast I really can’t see how this did not wind up in your christmas stocking or as a late January pick me up!
