Sneak Peek: Hourglass Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder Photos & Swatches

Hourglass Strobe Light Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder

For spring, Hourglass has released a new formula, Strobe Light Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder ($38.00 for 0.16 oz.), which is available in four shades (one we saw in the holiday palette). They are housed in a mirrored, plastic compact and are similar in size to the Ambient Blushes. They are designed to be used wet or dry, so I have included swatches of both applications and in reviews, I will have applied them onto the face both ways as well. Full reviews to come!

5 Shimmering Red Lipsticks to Try

When I think about a go-to color for a bold, party look, I always think red. I’m curious to know what your go-to color is when you think about it! There aren’t nearly as many shimmery/metallic reds as there should be, in my opinion, that are permanently available. I’d love to hear about more that I’m missing out on!

  1. Kat Von D Adora — A Warm Red with a Metallic finish.
  2. Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics Role Play — A Warm Red with a Frost finish.
  3. NARS Christina — A Warm Red with a Frost finish.
  4. Milani Cherry Crave — A Warm Red with a Metallic finish.
  5. Hourglass Siren — A Warm Red with a Metallic finish.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Palette

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Palette ($80.00 for 0.29 oz.) includes three Ambient Lighting Powders, two Ambient Lighting Blushes, and one Ambient Lighting Bronzer in a large, plastic palette with an interior mirror. If you don’t mind having to finagle your brushes just so or have no issues using two or three shades at a time, and you’re a fan of the Hourglass Ambient formulas, then it might be worth looking at. I think that with how out of line it is compared to their other palettes that it is hard to recommend, even if the quality is good, because I see more value in picking up one or two that you’d use often and love. I had some texture issues with Luminous Flush, which was much more powdery/dusty this time around. Otherwise, the blushes/bronzers were more or less of one shade due to the nature of it being a mixed composition (so they can vary from pan to pan quite a bit).
