Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Blush Palette ($62) is a new, limited edition Spring 2017 blush palette that contains three shades of Hourglass Cosmetics Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder. I picked this up because of the “strobe” in the title. You see, I have all the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush shades but I never understood the raving and hype surround them as they really didn’t produce the luminous glow I was hoping for. When I purchased them I wanted something along the lines of the pretty glow I get from NARS Orgasm or MAC Sweet Vision Magic Dust Powder but the finish was a lot flatter than I expected and I didn’t get that luminous glow that was promised.

Anyway, this intrigued me because I wasn’t it’s a combination of the newer Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder that contains blush pigments. I was hoping this meant I’d finally get that glowing finish I was looking for.

The palette contains Ambient Strobe Lighting Blush in Incandescent Electra, Brilliant Nude, and Euphoric Fusion. I already own the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Palette which contains Incandescent Electra and to look at the one in the new Strobe Lighting Blush Palette I wouldn’t say I noticed any major differences between the two. I haven’t swatched or used it yet so, let’s hope there’s a difference. One of the things I did notice is these shades contain tiny specks of gold shimmer which is quite visibly noticeable. This gives me hope I’ll get that glow I’m seeking!

I do wonder if the Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Blush Palette is a preview of a possible launch of an entire line of Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Blush for Spring 2017. I guess we’ll have to wait and see how that pans us.

I’ll be reviewing the Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Blush Palette shortly so stayed tune.

Until that time, do share if you got your hands on it and what you think so far.

Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Blush Palette is available at Sephora.com shortly.

About the Muse

Isabella MuseIsabella is just an average everyday geeky girl who doesn’t blend her eyeshadow correctly, wears too much blush, and hopes she never finds her holy grail products because she likes the thrill of the chase so much. Her mission is to bring you super honest reviews on makeup, skincare, fragrance and all things beauty. She’s in no way an expert on the topic and she sure as hell isn’t a super model. But she’s passionate about makeup and is seeking like-minded individuals that like pina coladas, getting caught in the rain, and ones that enjoy spending hundreds of dollars at Sephora without feeling buyer’s remorse.

    Cannot wait for your review! I’ve been contemplating If this is what I want to purchase with the $25 off of $50 coupon sephora sent via email.

    Muse, you got such a great box, all 3 looks great. Because of their formula, buying Hourglasses blushes online is always like playing in roulette. My box was almost like palette of highlighters only with the thin lines of colors. Hope it will be available soon in store, so I can exchange for better version.

    • Isabella Muse

      I completely agree Barbara! The color veining is sometimes non-existent 🙁

    • Courtney

      I don’t think this will available in stores ? I think I read this was an online exclusive pallette? Someone correct me if I’m wrong 🙂

  • Dee

    This looks promising! I have two of the blushes and like them but I don’t like any shimmer. Can’t wait for your swatches!

  • Janessa

    Will you compare this to the blues palette that came out a few years ago? I just came across that guy at the bottom of my blush bin. Oops

    • Isabella Muse

      Sorry Janessa, I’m not even sure what the blues palette is? Never heard of it.

      • Janessa
