Beauty Find - Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette

A few months ago I shared with you one of my favorite Hourglass products, the Ambient Lighting Powder.

Now, there's an even better option for those of you who want the full power of contouring and highlighting - or just want to be able to sample 3 of the Hourglass shades in a convenient way - the limited edition Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette.

The three shades included (from left to right) are Dim, Incandescent and Radiant.  What I love about this trio are the different ways it can be used.  It should be noted however, the overall effect with any of the shades with be with at least some shimmer/sheen, so please keep in mind this is not for a "matte" look.

Radiant is one of my favorite shades, and I loved using this down the center of my face, particularly on my nose bridge, and sometimes mixed with blush.  The Dim I often used as either an all over powder after finishing my makeup, or as a bit of a contour underneath the cheekbones.  Incandescent is a perfect highlighter, which I used on top of my cheekbones, brow bones and cupid bow. I loved how soft and finely milled these powders were and they easy they were to blend.  The powders just melted into my skin and made me look instantly polished and glowy.  You can use your favorite powder brushes for the powders, but I loved using the Hourglass Ambient Powder Brush.

These are perfect shades no matter your skin tone, because you can either use the darker ones as a true bronzer, or the lighter ones as a highlighter that leaves a sheen and not  "color" on the skin.  Now that we're moving into the winter months, this is the perfect palette to keep a bit of glow on the skin.

By the way, in addition to the three powders, you also get a mini bottle of their amazing Hourglass Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15 .  The powders are also so densely packed with product, even using daily, it will several months before you've really put a dent into it.  Treat yourself to this one, or put it on your holiday gift list for your beauty treat! - RLB
