TMG Faves: Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette…

The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette [$58] is BACK and part of the permanent line for Hourglass Cosmetics.  The palette of ambient lighting powders showed up last fall as a limited edition holiday offering and quickly sold out EVERYWHERE.  Shoppers were heartbroken when it was nowhere to be found.  People continued to ask, harass and cajole when, where and how they could get one.  Customers were resorting to purchasing them on eBay for far more than they were worth.  Things eventually got so out of hand that the creator of Hourglass,  Carisa Janes left her personal palette in her hotel room and one of the maids stole it.  Well, your prayers have been answered and Hourglass heard you.  It BACK and will now be a part of the permanent line.  It’s already online at hourglasscosmetics.com and sephora.com and will be back in Sephora stores on June 6th.

The palette contains Dim Light and Radiant Light ambient lighting powders, both which are part of the permanent range, and a limited edition shade called Incandescent Light.  Each shade is smaller in size, compared to the full-sized compact (which retails for $45 each for individual shades).  The palette is a great way to try the powders without the hefty price tag of purchasing three separately. Another great feature is that the powders will work on ANY skin-tone.  They are also talc free, gluten free, nano particle free so they are super light, highly pigmented and almost like a sheer veil with lighting technology that can bend, reflect and refract light.  It’s literally like having your own personal lighting assistant.  I like to think of these like instagram for the face – these powders are SO cutting edge that they are like little filters that give you a different look.

The Rundown:

DIM LIGHT: A neutral peach beige powder that blurs imperfections and highlights a radiant complexion with the perfect balance of warm and cool tones.  This is like the perfect filter, like a sheer stocking over a camera lens. Perfect as an all over finishing powder on any skintone.

 RADIANT LIGHT: A sun-kissed golden beige that enhances the overall complexion with believable, subtle warmth, and also extends a summer glow. This is like evening sunlight on your face – great for contouring on fair skin OR all over for someone with a tan or medium to darker skintones.
