Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette

This post is more of a reveal than a review. I have been really sick for a horrible viral flu for the past 3 days so I have only been well enough to unwrap and drool over this, but not to actually try it out.

I use the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in 'Mood Light' pretty much every day. You can imagine my excitement when I found out Hourglass were bringing out a limited edition product with three powders housed in the one sleek palette. The palette contains:

L-R: dim light, incandescent light and radiant light

L-R: dim light, incandescent light and radiant light

'Dim Light' a peach-beige to blur imperfections and highlight.

'Incandescent Light' a limited edition shade which an opalescent pearl to brighten.

'Radiant Light' a golden beige to enhance and give warmth. 

The size of each colour is smaller than you get when you buy them individually, but it is still big enough to get proper usage out of them and it is obvious cheaper buying them this way rather than buying them separately. Also included is a trial size of their Veil Mineral Primer.  The palette costs Β£56.00 here. At the time of purchase Space NK had a Β£10 off deal which made it a great time to buy. Unfortunately it seems this product is yet to hit Australian shores, but you can buy the individual powders here for $62.00.


I was also thrilled to see that their Opaque Rouge lipstick in Canvas is finally back in stock. I tried to buy this shade months ago only to find it sold out everywhere so I bought the shade Ballet instead. Canvas is the perfect long-lasting nude. This consistency of this lipstick took a little getting used to for me as i'm an avid lipgloss wearer. I found it hard not to add gloss over the top and found if I did, it disturbed the setting of the lip colour and ruined the long-wear aspect of it. Over time I got used to the formula and as long as my lips are well hydrated, it no longer bothers me.  

L-R: Canvas, Ballet and mini Muse

These cost Β£23.00 here and $42.00 here. If you are after the shade Canvas I would make haste as they are bound to sell quickly after being out of stock for so long.
