Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette

This is probably THE best gift set for anyone! It’s seriously fabulous! You get a trio of Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder collection in a single palette! It comes with three of the best-selling Ambient collection powders….well, one of them is NEW!! Did I mention that it also comes with a small travel size Mineral Veil Primer? Check out the goods here:


Take a peek at the colors on my arm (damn, I really need a tan! LOL!)…


The first one is Dim Light Powder. This one is really great because you can use it to help soften imperfections such as dark circles. You can even use it all over the face!

The second one is the radiant light (this one is my favorite) which can help with contouring the face (like those cheeky cheekbones) and even as an overall powder to put all over the face to set your makeup (but only a light coat of it if you’re going to use it as the powder on top).

The third one is the NEW Incandescent Light Powder. It is a pearlescent powder that helps to highlight and brighten your complexion. You can use this one to light the tops of your cheekbones, under the brow, center of your eyelids, and even the bridge of your nose.

I highly recommend getting the brush to apply these powders called the Hourglass Ambient Powder Brush. It really is meant to help angle the product properly on your face for highlighting and contouring. I find that it fits in your hand better than a longer brush, so you can really angle the brush. (plus its super easy to travel with!)  ambientlightingbrush

The trio will run you about 58 dollars, and the brush 35. Now, you have to know that this gift set is really a deal. Each one of these powders is 45 dollars. And this one you’re getting THREE for 58. :)

I was not compensated for this review. I was provided this palette by Hourglass.
