The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Unlocked Palette ($80) is a new, limited edition palette that Hourglass released for Holiday 2018 which includes Ambient Lighting Powder, Bronzer, Blush, and Highlighter. It’s a tempting, elegant piece of makeup but are there any takers out there for this one?
I’ve considered it. A lot. Perhaps too much and decided to skip it. This launch is repetitive for me even though it includes six, all new and exclusive shades. I feel like I have a ton of the Ambient Lighting Edit Palettes already which I’m barely making use of so my collection might not need another near $100 palette I won’t use.
But man, it is very, very tempting!
- Ambient Lighting Powder in Soft Light (soft, subtle peach), Filtered Light (cool, medium tone)
- Ambient Lighting Bronzer in Golden Bronze Light (neutral, golden bronze)
- Ambient Lighting Blush in Nude Glow (shimmering light amber), Mood Flush (soft plum)
- Metallic Strobe Lighting Powder in Champagne Strobe Light (true champagne)
I was never a strong supporter of Ambient Lighting Blush from the get go but I’ve always been a lover of the Ambient Lighting Powder which is odd considering I don’t typically use powder since my skin is drier. But this stuff really does create a beautifully smooth, diffused, soft focus on skin. I have grown to love the blush over the years but the powder remains a holy grail product for me.
I’m currently trying hard to keep my feelings to a firm no on this but every time I open Sephora’s page it’s front and center as if calling me to buy it. I’m resisting that siren’s call for now but not sure how long I’ll hold out!
Do you purchase the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Unlocked Palette this year?
