This product is free of talc, gluten, fragrance, and nano particles. "I learned early on how different types of light can truly flatter the complexion. Growing up, my mother had pink light bulbs in all of the lamps throughout the house. She loved pink light because it was the softest and most flattering, and she always wanted to look good. I used this concept of lighting in Ambient Lighting Powder"—Carisa Janes, Hourglass Founder Hourglass products are 100 percent cruelty-free.
My fav face palette, brings me the perfect look
This is my favourite full-face palette: Ambient Metallic Strobe Lighting Palette from Hourglass. I know how hourglass is famous for its highlighters but let me tell you, although this palette looks like containing three highlighters, this is not a simple highlighter! I bought this after reading tons of positive reviews online and it really doesn’t let me down. What does it have: Absolute strobe light Pure strobe light Lucent strobe light How to use them: This is not only a highlighter, as I said. And since I love the glow so much, I have explored multiple ways to corporate this palette into my makeup and this is amazing how this always looks good at almost every place on my face lol. Here’s a detailed guidance. I use the first powder as an all over powder. It can blot down shininess and never looks like you powdered your face. People always say that they can’t see the “product” on my face and I guess that’s why this palette has the name because it’s ambient! The powders are meant to give your skin a natural-glow-within type of look. I use the powder in the middle as a highlighter, especially good for the under-eye area. And since it is the most glowing one in this palette, I’ve also tried to use it as a shimmer to apply on the corner of the eye, which really compliments almost every eye look. And for the final powder, the darkest shade, I use it to accentuate my contour or bronzer. I would also use all the 3 to apply all over my face. My thoughts on this product: I know many brands have their own face palette. The reason I opted for this one is that I am so drawn into the nice subtle glow of these three powders. It’s really hard to describe: It’s not shimmery or metallic-y. I hope the pictures could let you have a sense of it. It is sold at $64 at Sephora. I know it’s little pricy and I do believe you can purchase a similar product for a lot less but, personally, it’s definitely a staple in my makeup collection and I don’t regret buying it at all!
HOURGLASS-Ambient Lighting Palette
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette
A recent pick up that I have been enjoying. I wear this on days that I want an extra glow from within. It has three different unique shades, a champagne, one with a neutral tone, and a bronzed shade. The texture is so smooth. It feels as its between a cream and a powder product. It has a sheen that makes me look super glowy. I either use a big brush and sweep it all over or a highlighter brush and focus it on the top of my cheekbones and nose. I use the bronzed shade to top of my bronzer/contour. Overall, when used all together, they give me a sun kissed look. They are definitely buildable so you don’t have to worry about picking up a lot at once. The palette costs $64 in their website and Sephora. It is well worth it since a little bit goes a long way. I will be using this all year long to help achieve a natural healthy glow.

Colour of the season 🍊✨
Mini haul featuring my fave colour of the season 🍊 I’m just gonna go ahead and say it... Hourglass has thee best powders, hands down! They make my face look like I’m glowing from the Gods 😇 They don’t have sparkle & glitter, they just leave my skin with a perfect sheen. I use these powders over top of my foundation and concealer base, and they give me a subtle glow and less makeup cake-up!🤗 **Side note, I do believe these powders would leave a beautiful finish on any skin tone! They’re very universal and not super pigmented. I recommend HOURGLASS - Ambient Lighting Palette to anyone. It’s good for overall face, highlighting and bronzing your skin slightly (on my light-medium skin anyway, but I usually still go in with bronzer). The one on the very left is even good for blotting throughout the day. Also, the HOURGLASS - Ambient Lighting Bronzer is pictured on the right. It gives a similar effect to my skin as the palette, and it’s not too deep of a bronze that I can’t apply it to my whole face. If you’re looking for a budget friendly version of the palette, I’d say start with the bronzer! It even comes in a mini size (which is what I have). It’s truly amazing! MARC JACOBS BEAUTY - Highliner Gel Eye Crayon Eyeliner This is such a gorgeous orange-coral shimmer eye pencil and I love it upon my first try 💓 MAKE UP FOR EVER - Artist Color Pencil: Eye, Lip & Brow Pencil These artist color pencils by MUFE are one of a kind. You can use them on eyes, brows, cheeks and lips. I’ve tried other colours as well, they’re so versatile and definitely a staple in my collection. However, this orange was definitely too bright in my opinion. FENTY BEAUTY - Slip Shine Sheer Shiny Lipstick I needed a cute orange lippie to go with the rest, no? 🙊 I liked this orange “tang thang” by fenty because it’s very sheer, not so in your face

Is Luxurious Makeup Worth it?
While these products are definitely nice to look at, they aren’t necessarily worth the money. BUT it depends on who you’re talking to. For some, the pretty packaging is worth the large price tag, but for others, as long as the product gets the job done it is worth it. These products were each a gift (besides the Rare Beauty - Liquid Touch Brightening Concealer which is the least expensive out of the bunch) so I didn’t get the buyers remorse with most of these! However, I think that’s a great way to go about getting these products! If you can’t afford luxurious beauty products, wait until a holiday and ask for your most sought after products! And if you can afford them and want to treat yourself, by all means that is fine too!

My favorite a to conceal is using HOURGLASS - Vanish Airbrush Concealer on spots or over foundation on the high points of my face! This concealer is stunning, doesn’t need to be set; and leaves my skin looking better than ever!
