The Hourglass Ambient Light Edit Unlocked had been on my lust list for a while. When it was first launched, I talked myself out of it by reminding myself that I still had other Hourglass palettes that I hadn’t even hit pan on and that I didn’t need this. Then we saw it in Selfridges and I fell in love, but I couldn’t afford it that day, so I tried to put it out of my mind.
Mick knew how much I wanted the palette and he checked the usual websites who were all sold out … and then he found it on Feel Unique and he snapped it up for my birthday. I can’t even describe the happiness once it was finally in my hands and as the last couple of weeks have passed, I’ve fallen head over heels with it. The fact if has a bunny on the front also makes me very happy – ok, so it’s not a bunny just for me, it’s because it is cruelty-free and 100% vegan), but I love me a bunny.
Before we get into the prettiness of this palette, there’s also a charitable aspect to this. A portion of the profits will be going to the Nonhuman Rights Project – an organisation in America who work to secure legally recognised rights for non-human animals.
The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Unlocked contains 6 totally new shades of powder, blush, bronzer and strobe powder. I like that it’s new shades as sometimes with the Hourglass palettes it can feel like they’re just repackaging old shades.
I do enjoy the palettes as I like having everything in one place and some days I don’t want to rummaging through my makeup collection for all the different powders needed to make me look human. Plus when I go away, it’s easier to just take an Hourglass palette with me.
We all want to look flawless and as though we’ve had several flattering filters applied to our faces, but that’s not real life. This palette is the next best thing. Every time I’m feeling a bit self-conscious about my complexion, I reach for Hourglass powders as they leave my skin looking amazing.
All of the powders are formulated with Hourglass’ Photoluminescent Technology. Now I don’t really know what that is, but basically it’s magic. It captures, softens and diffuses light so that your skin looks beautifully soft as well as younger and lit from within.
I always know that whenever I use any Hourglass powder, and especially this palette, my skin looks smoother and as if there is a filter over it. Even on the days where I’ve barely slept or I’m in pain, these help me to disguise whatever my skin is going through.
