I am a little late getting this beautiful product, but now that it is mine I knew I had to share it with you guys. I was so happy to find this under the tree Christmas morning, it's good to know Santa was listening!

The Ambient Lighting Powders (top row) are very subtle and beautiful. I already owned dim light in the full size. I use it on my older clientele who want a healthy glow, especially if they have dry skin. I also will use it on myself, but if you are looking for a highlight and you have dry skin I suggest these for you!

I am excited to use the bronzer, and these 2 new (to me) blush shades. I also got from Santa another Hourglass Blush. I will be featuring on the blog soon my go to full face with High End products. I obviously will be including this amazing palette.

Is it worth $80? I honestly can say, YASS! If you are a makeup lover or just a collector this will be a great addition to your collection. Hourglass never disappoints me in their products and their ability to perform.

  1. My birthday is coming up in a month and I feel like I need to ask for this hehe. Thanks for the great review.

  2. It is so pretty, but I'm not sure I'd use it enough. I don't use bronzer. I probably would use the blushes. I have one of the Ambient Lighting in full size (can't remember which one) and the shade Dwas recommended to me by one of the MUAs at Sephora, but frankly I don't think it's the right shade for me, my face looks dirty when I use it, lol. Do you use it for an all over glow or softness or do you use the Ambient Lighting in certain areas like a regular highlighter?

    1. On my myself I use it all over, however for my clients just on areas where you would highlight. I had a Mother of the Bride who was in her late 50's very dry, and wasn't a makeup person. I used it on her with my IT Cosmetics Heavenly Luxe brush and it just gave her a beautiful glow it was natural. You know I don't care about appearing natural so I like to layer it on, so people know I am glowing hehe but it is still very natural all over the skin. I don't use it as my highlight usually as a finishing powder if that makes more sense hehe

  3. I can't get over how pretty this palette is.

    1. It really is, it works amazing and looks pretty heheh Win, Win!

  5. The palette is so beautiful but I passed since I don't use bronzer and I have last year's (which I don't use nearly enough). This is a great present.

  6. I have two of the blushes and never reach for them. What's wrong with me??
