Having resisted the urge to jump on the beauty band wagon for some time I finally caved in and purchased the Hourglass Ambient Light Palette. I was a little unsure of what to expect to be honest, I was pleasantly surprised when a gorgeous packaged item arrived.

A trio palette of soft, finally milled powders that are designed to give dimensions to the face after applying your base. The palette consists of Dim Light, a neutral peachy beige powder that blurs imperfection and highlights the complexion. I have used this as a form of setting powder (Don’t rely on this if you have slightly oily skin as mine went a little oily after about 3-4 hours wear) I use this after a really light dusting of my Bobbi Brown setting powder. Incandescent Light, A pearly powder used for highlighting. This is a really nice fine highlighter that is subtle enough for everyday use. Radiant Light, A sun-Kissed golden beige powder that enhances the completion, I have used this as a really subtle bronzer that gives the face some degree of warmth. all three powders give your skin a sort of soft focus effect which looks gorgeous.

Although I do really light the effect this has on my skin, the question is would I buy it again? And to be honest i’m not sure. It definitely is a beautiful palette at the effects are lovely on my skin, however the price puts me off! At a whopping £56 it is definitely the most expensive make up purchase I have made. I am going to apply it to my mum’s skin this weekend and see what she thinks, personally i think she will love it.

Have you tried this palette, if so what are your thoughts?
