REVIEW & GIVEAWAY! Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Volume 3

Hourrglass Ambient Lighting Edit Volume 3 Giveaway

We all know that I am a huge Hourglass fan (brand focus post here), so when I saw that they were releasing a third edition of their Ambient Lighting Edit, it took me all of two seconds to decide I needed it in my life! I mean it's rose gold and it's Hourglass so of course I had to buy it! I know that so many people would also love to own the palette so I also bought a second one to do a giveaway because I haven't done one in months and I thought this would be the perfect prize! Details on how you can enter are at the end of this post so keep reading....

Once again, I have to apologise for the lack of swatches but I am still without full power in one of my arms so it just isn't possible for me at the moment.

The layout of this palette is the same as the original Ambient Lighting Palette with six powders in total, all the same size. The packaging is a stunning rose gold and inside the lid is a mirror. If you haven't seen these palettes before, then you may be a little shocked by the size of this palette, especially given the £69 price tag, however you do get to try six products - two finishing powders, a bronzer, a highlighter and two blushes so if you have yet to buy any Hourglass products, this is an ideal palette for you. Also, it is the perfect size for travelling as it's slim but sturdy and you have a good choice of products. Rather disappointingly, three of the powders were in the original Ambient Lighting Edit so if you already own that one, you may be disappointed. That being said, there are also three totally new products in the palette.

In the top row, (from left to right) there is Diffused Light, which is a yellow toned powder - perfect for toning down any redness. In the middle is Hypnotic Strobe Light, which is a sophisticated champagne toned highlight - a new product. It is quite subtle so would be ideal for daytime highlighting, however if you wet it, it builds the intensity. Next is Dim Light, which is a peachy-nude shade - perfect for adding some life to the skin and a slight glow.

In the bottom row, (from left to right) there is Luminous Bronze Light, which is a medium bronzer with some slight shimmer - the overall effect of this powder is a healthy glow without being at all orange. In the middle is a new blush shade - Surreal Halo, which is a warm berry blush mixed with Surreal Light powder (from the Ambient Edit 2 palette). Finally, is Pure Effect, another new blush shade, which is quite a bright pink blush, yet it is very flattering on the skin as long as you use a light hand.

Dare I say it but I think this is my favourite of all three Ambient Lighting Edits! Maybe it is because it has my favourite powders and bronzer but I also adore both blush shades. They are both extremely flattering on. The highlight is probably the product I will use least because of how subtle it is, however it is still very wearable. The quality of the powders is the same as the individual powders - a dream to work with because they are soft and they apply and blend so easily. They don't dry my skin out or look cakey or flat and the blushes add luminosity and a lit from within look to my cheeks. Overall, I am very happy with this palette and it is worth the price in my opinion!
