Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit
[may contain affiliate links]
Oh hey there, class! Are you overwhelmed yet by the astonishing number of holiday makeup releases? (side note – can we talk about the fact that now “holiday” releases happen starting in September? Like.. really?) One product that I was convinced I would never get, but did get anyway, is the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit. Based on the theme of “Surreal Light,” the five pans in this palette sit in a case of marble. Well, marble-colored plastic. Let’s take a look!
As stated on Sephora:
This palette contains:
– 0.14 oz/ 4 g in Ambient Lighting Powder in Surreal Light (sheer nude)
– 0.04 oz/ 1.4 g in Ambient Lighting Bronzer in Surreal Bronze Light (neutral tan with Surreal Light)
– 2 x 0.04 oz/ 1.4 g Ambient Lighting Blush in Surreal Glow (pale peony pink with Surreal Light), Surreal Effect (cool, pink rose with soft, warm peach)
– 0.04 oz/ 1.4 g in Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder in Surreal Strobe Light (glimmering peach)
I believe these are all new and limited edition shades. That being said, it wouldn’t surprise me if one or two made their way into Hourglass’ permanent lineup.
Overall, the powders are soft and blendable. As in the past, I had a little trouble doing decent swatches on my arm (as I am a ghost) but here’s what I have for you:
At $80, the Ambient Lighting Edit is not a crazy good deal, but it is a nice collection if you could see yourself using these peachy-toned colors. I’d love to hear your thoughts on it!
