Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette

Common misconception: these powders are not true highlighters. They are actually finishing powders.

Good. Now that we’ve gotten that cleared up, let’s look at the pretty palette.

The case is beautifully sleek and seems to be sturdy.

L-R: Dim Light, Incandescent Light, Radiant Light.

Dim Light is described as “neutral peach beige powder”.

Incandescent Light is described as ” pearlescent powder”.

Radiant Light is described as “golden beige powder”.

Swatches are in order of listed names.

These are very faintly, subtly shimmery and give my skin a beautiful soft focus glow. I feared they would be too shimmery for my oily skin, but they’re not. They’re pretty great. Incandescent Light is a bit paler than I’d like for my complexion, but I can work with it, I’m sure.

This costs $62 USD.

  1. I own Dim Ligh and am not too happy with it as a setting powder, too much glow for my taste. I use it on top of my full matte Double Wear for a little bit of extra.
