Ambient Lighting Edit in Surreal Light


I am a big fan of Hourglass and when I saw the promo pictures for the new Ambient Lighting Edit in Surreal Light my heart skipped a beat.

I was equally as excited as soon as I found out that I could pre-order the palette through the Space NK website. And finally I have this palette in my life and I have had the chance to play with it a bit so I could share my thoughts with all of you.

The palette contains 5 powders:
·             1 finishing powder in surreal light
·             1 bronze powder in surreal Bronze light
·             2 Blushes one in Surreal Glow and the other one in Surreal Effect
·             1 Highlight in Surreal Strobe light

Lets first talk about the packaging. I totally fell in love with the marble effect case and gold letters the first time I saw it. But seeing it face to face I was kind of let down by it. It looks lovely in pictures but in real life it looks to much like plastic for my taste. I think I preferred the old packaging. But to be totally honest, this isn’t a big issue for me.

The powders are better than I imagined. The quality of the powders in this palette is better in my opinion than the ones I have tried previously.

The Finishing powder in surreal light in very light, not powdery at all and leaves a lovely finish on the skin.

The highlighter is a dream, it’s the perfect subtle highlighter to wear to work, to school or simply to run errands. It´s not glittery at all and has a lovely subtle shimmer.

The blushes are adorable, my favourite one is Surreal Glow as it gives you a natural healthy flush to the cheeks. Love it!

The bronzer is also really nice, very similar to the other Hourglass bronzers, but it is quite light. I don’t think it would work if you have a tanned skin tone.

Even though I already own the the previous Ambient Lighting Edit Palette I don’t regret buying this one. The powders are very different and the blushes are better in the Surreal Edit. The palette is quite pricey retailing for £69.00 but worth it in my opinion.
Its great to travel with, great quality powder and really nice colours.

If you like the Hourglass powders you will definitely love this palette.

  6. Hourglass is such a gorgeous brand and especially love their highlights. I only have one but it's a favourite as it's so subtle and not too overbearing.

    Great post.

  8. I actually didn't pick this up because swatching them in person, I realised most of the shades were not for my skin tone. It's really pretty to look at though - maybe one day I'll finally get one of their LE palettes haha - I've actually only ever ended up buying their single products so far!
