Hourglass Surreal Light Ambient Lighting Edit Palette

Hourglass Surreal Light Ambient Lighting Edit Palette ($80.00 for 0.30 oz.) includes a finishing powder, bronzer, two blushes, and highlighter inspired by Surreal Light, which is a new shade in the Ambient Lighting Powder family (currently only available in this palette). This palette will work best for someone who is less concerned about a “value-packed” palette/is unlikely to finish their products and really needs everything in a single compact. I think the palette, all being in the same family of Surreal Light, ends up getting muddled a bit between the blush, bronzer, and highlighter with the Surreal Effect blush being the one lone shade that stands out as a bit different. It is a distinctively warm-toned palette, so it will likely not work for everyone. The texture seemed a bit drier across the majority of the powders as the permanent range, though I did not notice the dryness as applied to the face in practice.

Guerlain Meteorites Voyage Enchante Illuminating Matte Powder

Guerlain Meteorites Voyage Enchante Illuminating Matte Powder ($179.00 for 0.28 oz.) is supposed to mattify the skin while “instantly blur[ring] the appearance of small imperfections.” Guerlain says to apply it “over foundation to set it.” The powder has the brand’s signature violet scent, though I found it very subtle (which was a surprise, given Guerlain has tended to heavily scent their powders recently).
