Hourglass Surreal Strobe Light is a very warm-toned, medium gold with a luminous finish. It is a limited edition highlighter that retails for $40.00.
Surreal Strobe Light is a soft, light-medium yellowed peach with warm undertones and gold shimmer. It had sheer coverage that did not really build-up, while the texture was drier and looser. It is supposed to be sheerer, though this is a lot sheerer than the other permanent shades. I do not think this would apply as well over drier skin types as it would just not stick well, but if you normally wear primer, liquid foundation, and so forth, it should be okay. It does add a nice, luminous glow that isn't metallic or shiny, so I think those who like a a more subtle sheen may like the finish of it. This highlighter wore well for seven hours on me.
