Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit palette review 

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit I really wanted this Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit palette when it came out at the end of last year but it sold out too quick. Truth be told I was buying other people their Christmas presents so it wasn’t in budget. However I was thrilled when it popped up on the Space NK site again. It’s priced at £65 so not cheap but it’s a great way to try six different products like I wanted to.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit  So included in the palette is;

  • Dim Light
  • Iridescent Light
  • Diffused Light
  • Mood Exposure
  • Luminous Flush
  • Luminous Bronze Light

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit  The top three in the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit are all lighting powders so all can be used for highlighting. I was pleasantly surprised that all of them showed on my skin colour nicely. They are really easy to use and build up if you like a heavier highlight look. I personally prefer a subtle highlighter so one brush is plenty for me. You can’t really go wrong or make a mistake with any of these.

There’s two blushes that are both really nice although I prefer Luminous Flush which is a pinker blush. Mood Exposure is much more subtle out of the two on me and is a plum colour but I still like it. I think I’ll use Mood Exposure more in the winter.

Luminous Bronze gives a lovely sunkissed look and again is very easy to build up for a heavy look. I used this where you’d usually contour and liked the subtle look as I don’t usually go too heavy. 

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit These are not the best swatches but I tried to get the best I could in different lighting. As you can see all the pans are gorgeous though with good colour payoff.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit is great for me because I like having something that I can use for my whole look as I think I’ve mentioned before. I love a good multipurpose palette and this provides me with my blush, highlight, bronzer, contour and even shadow if I push it.

Some people have said the pans are too small for their brushes but I haven’t found this to be the case as I won’t be putting a massive powder brush in it! I can see this palette lasting me quite a while so it was 100% worth it for me.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Here’s a quick selfie (no shame) after using the palette subtly. I’ve not used it heavily here but do sometimes build it more.

Did you get the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit or have you tried Hourglass?

I also love the summer trio which I blogged about here.
