I have to admit, I am incredibly behind when it comes to trying out the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette. Hourglass is acruelty free brand, but I did not know this palette was vegan until recently. I have heard rave reviews about it for ages and was really interested to see if it lived up to the hype.
This palette contains three shades of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder, one of which is exclusive to the palette.
- Dim Light: A neutral peach beige powder that blurs imperfections and highlights a radiant complexion with the perfect balance of warm and cool tones.
- Incandescent Light (exclusive to the palette): An opalescent pearl powder that brightens the complexion with a celestial glow.
- Radiant Light: A sun-kissed golden beige that enhances the overall complexion with believable, subtle warmth, and also extends a summer glow.
Claims: “Create your perfect light with this palette featuring three shades of Ambient Lighting Powder, which utilize Photoluminescent Technology to filter out harsh light and refine the appearance of the complexion. Each of these high-tech, soft-focus finishing powders recreate an exquisitely flattering light source. The powders can be applied individually or layered to imbue skin with a multidimensional glow.”
