Hourglass Surreal Light Palette
Hourglass Surreal Light Palette ($80.00 for 0.30 oz.) contains five cheek/face powders revolving around the shade of Surreal Light, which makes them all new (and limited edition), but it wouldn’t surprise me if we saw it added to the regular line someday later on (equally possible it never returns!). There are two blushes, one bronzer, one highlighter, and one finishing powder (which is the largest of the five shades).
Like last year’s palette, the only value is in whether you like the idea of getting five shades for less than the cost of two or three full-sized Hourglass Ambient Lighting products (which range from $38 to $50 in price). There’s only $53.30 worth of product in the palette, so it’s obviously not a value-packed palette. This is something that will be best for someone who wants everything in a single palette and will wear at least three of the five shades often. This year’s palette is marginally better in value than last year’s (which was $48.05 in product value at the same $80.00 price point), but their palettes prior to that were significantly better in value.
