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.
