Good morning, class! I have a huge announcement for you! Hourglass now lets you customize your own Ambient Lighting Palette!
I know, I know – I may sound a little too excited. But this is a big deal. Let’s discuss why.
First of all, the ambient lighting powders are amazing. They are basically finishing powders that mimic different light sources and blur imperfections. The original Ambient Lighting Palette contains Dim Light (neutral peach), Incandescent Light (opalescent pearl) and Radiant Light (golden beige). That palette was one of my first Sephora purchases! However, over the years I’ve decided that Dim Light is not great for my skin tone and Radiant Light only really works for me in the summer.
Enter the new custom Ambient Lighting Palette. For just $8 more on Hourglass’ website, you can choose three out of these six powders:
• DIFFUSED LIGHT: A soft, warm, pale yellow powder that conceals redness and gives skin clarity—like a soft ray of morning light.
• DIM LIGHT: A neutral peach beige powder that blurs imperfections and highlights a radiant complexion with the perfect balance of warm and cool tones.
• ETHEREAL LIGHT: An opalescent sheer, cool white powder that mimics a moonlit glow—even in broad daylight.
• LUMINOUS LIGHT: A champagne pearl powder that creates a soft, incandescent candlelit glow—day or night.
• MOOD LIGHT: A soft, sheer lavender pink powder that mimics the softest, most forgiving light and brightens the complexion.
• RADIANT LIGHT: A sun-kissed golden beige that enhances overall complexion with believable, subtle warmth, and also extends a summer glow.
Naturally, I had to try this out.
I chose Ethereal Light, Diffused Light and Mood Light. These seemed like the best options for my coloring and I am very pleased with the way my custom palette looks.
I have used the powders a few times and they perform just as you’d expect – fabulously. Stay tuned for swatches of all my ambien lighting powders at a later date!
What do you think? Would you create a custom Ambient Lighting Palette for yourself?
