Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit

NO FILTER - that's it!

Ok so my Hourglass powders addiction shows no signs of abating any time soon. They really have swept the market and made a long ignored category their own.

This gorgeous Limited Edition Ambient Lighting Edit contains six powders that 'finish, brighten, contour and highlight'. 
Dim, Iridescent and Diffused Light powders fill the top row left to right, Mood Exposure and Luminous Flush blushers bottom left - and Luminous Bronze Light Bronzer bottom right. I will probably end up buying another one. Being a Limited Edition I have the urge to save it but I want to use it.

Available now in the UK from spacenk.com priced £65.00
Available now in the USA from sephora.com priced $80.00 (value is $132.00)

Both outlets ship worldwide.

  1. These look so beautiful. How do you use them - individually, or sweep the brush over all of them?

  8. Looks amazing, but I've heard it doesn't have much product weight sadly!

  9. I think this palette is really disappointing for the price you're paying (especially the for the amount of product you get). Also, one thing to note is that the palette is so small that I find, you can't even use a proper powder brush to fit into your desired powder, it's that small.
    (p.s.: read Temptalia's review on this).

    1. The palette is really small but my RT setting brush and contour brush (the orange one in the core collection set) fit into the pan. Honestly I think it's perfect if you want to try out a few shades without buying full sizes!

  10. I was disappointed in the size of the pans in this palette. It is really difficult to use a single color! The triple pan palettes are a much better size for the price or, better yet, buy one Ambient powder and one Ambient blush in your favorite colors and swirl away with a big, fluffy brush as they are intended to be used! Brilliant products, however, the pans on this one are "sample sized". I will use this for travel, but that's about it.

  12. That's such a pretty thing! I got mine as soon as it went out and I'm in love.
    Sephora.com does not ship outside the US (you need a US credit card and a US mailing adress to order).
    Have a great weekend ;)

    1. They do ship outside of the US, to only few countries but UK is included. However you'd better get ready for 20% tax at check out , and of course shipping fees (6p for orders over 75p)

    2. I went to Hourglass to order it....the postage quoted was more than the price of the item !
      So I went to Amazon & found the prices there were jacked up before the shipping costs were added....so I have decided not to go along with the hype & stick to my lovely "It" Radiance Bronzer !

  13. I think I need this in my life....okay, I definitely need it.

  15. The weight doesn't seem to be listed on Space NK (not the mobile site anyway) but I ordered it. Only checked Sephora afterwards and there is less product in total than in a single full size, so I am definitely disappointed! Just warning any potential purchasers!

  21. I have been trying to put this palette out of my mind due to storage space becoming so tight.....but I might consider moving house so that I can accommodate the craving !

  22. Oh i love the blog and the vlog!! I think these Hourglass Powders are gorgeous!! They do like Neapolitan Ice Cream!! Love you Caroline we could be best friends if I lived in the UK LOL!! But we could be too much alike to get along!! Love your sense of humor!! Have a great week!

  23. I'll definitely be treating myself to one of these. Don't worry about using it up - I've used my trio palette A LOT and it's barely dented (bought when they first launched so I've had it for ages). x
