A THING OF BEAUTY
Christmas is well and truly on its way in the beauty world with a lot of buzz and excitement over all the limited edition collections that are being released at the moment. What's my top pick from all of these options I hear you ask? The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Palette of course. If you love a glowy look then this palette is definitely for you...
The edit contains 6 perfectly curated colours suitable for most skin tones which finish, brighten, contour and highlight. There are 3 ambient lighting powders, 2 ambient lighting blushes and 1 ambient lighting bronzer.
If like me you're a newbie to Hourglass, the palette will add 5 staple powders to your collection, plus one limited edition powder which is ideal for strobing (I have a sneaky guide to strobing here). This means you can instantly add a selection of Hourglass products to your collection.
So lets get onto the powders themselves. When I swatched the products on my hand before I bought it, I was worried about how glittery it looked. But once the excess is tapped off the powders apply beautifully to the skin without making you look like a disco ball! And I really love mixing the colours to create something new, combining the two blushes is my favourite!
At £65 it's not the cheapest palette in the world, but when you consider the individual powders are £28 each normally, it kinda softens the blow.
My personal highlight of the palette? The mirror is ah-mazing and makes it the perfect travel companion.
Top Row (From left to right)
Dim Light is a neutral peach beige powder that blurs imperfections whilst warming up the face.
Iridescent Light is a soft pink pearl powder. It looks like it has a lot of glitter in it but once the excess is tapped off, it doesn't apply glittery on the skin. I've actually been enjoying wearing this as a subtle everyday eyeshadow.
Diffused Light is a warm, pale yellow powder that conceals redness.
Bottom Row (From left to right)
Mood Exposure is a plum toned ambient blush which is supposed to brighten the complexion.
Luminous Flush is a champagne rose ambient blush. My personal favourite of the palette.
Luminous Bronze Light is a medium tan shade. It looks a little orangey in the picture but it doesn't look like that in real life.
