Hourglass Cosmetics recently released a new face palette called the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Surreal Light Palette, and today, I am going to be talking about and fully swatching it, along with providing more photos of the palette and where to buy links.
Description/Review of Hourglass Surreal Lighting Palette
The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Surreal Light Palette is a limited edition face palette that comes with 5 different shades; 1 finishing powder, 2 blushes, 1 bronzer and a strobe lighting powder. The finishing powder is bigger than the other 4 shades and contains 4 grams (0.14 ounces) of product and the other 4 shades contain 1.4 grams (0.04 ounces) of product. The palette has a shelf life of 12 months and is made in Italy.
The packaging is absolutely beautiful and the palette is fully marble. I have to say, the packaging is soooo amazing and I absolutely love the white marble. The formula is nice, soft and buttery and the shades are pigmented. The formula just slides on and is high quality, which I would expect for the price. If you want this palette, get it while stocks last because it is limited edition and will go quite quick.
The Hourglass Surreal Lighting Palette costs $116.00 AUD ($80.00 USD) and can be purchased from Mecca (AU) and Sephora (USA)
Nowwww, let’s go over the swatches of the five shades!!

Shade 5- Surreal Strobe Light
Surreal Strobe Light is a light yellow highlighter shade. It can be applied to the high points of the face- tops of cheeks, bridge of the nose, brow bone and cupids bow to give a beautiful highlighting effect. If you want this shade to be more bold, you can use it wet which will make it go heaps brighter.
