Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette - Updated- Swatches

Having now seen the new Hourglass palette in person I love it even more.  I swatched as best I could the three shades. You can see that the first two have some color and the third, the new Incandescent Light is mostly colorless. ( The swatches are out of order.)

This is my first try of Radiant Light, but it's one I thought I'd like. This imparts a warm glow to skin while Dim Light adds a hint of color that seems to perfect skin. It's like a much lighter version of a bronzer. Incandescent brightens  .

I love the idea of a powder palette and it something we don't see often.I can only think of one other brand that has one.  If you are a powder fan or want a gift for the makeup lover but are unsure what lip or eye shades she loves, then this might be just right.

You know how I love my Hourglass Ambient Light Powder  . Now for holiday we can feast our eyes and skin on an LE Ambient  triple threat, yes a palette with 3 shades - two existing and one new.

Ambient Lighting Palette includes Dim Light and Radiant Light along with new LE shade Incandescent Light . The palette also includes a  5 ml trial size of  Mineral Veil Primer.

The Incandescent Light is a  " pearlescent powder that highlights the cheekbones and brightens the complexion with a celestial glow."

I should have a in person look at it soon and will update.

Hourglass Ambient Light Palette is $ 58 and available now at Sephora, Barneys, Space NK  and more.
