Radiate luminous beauty with this curated collection of powders, blushes and a bronzer - including the new Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder in Iridescent Strobe light, a sheer illuminating highlighter designed to emulate the way in which strobe lights capture and reflect light on the face.

Designed to give you everything you need to finish, brighten, contour and highlight your skin in a single compact. Unlike traditional powder, blush and bronzer, which tend to be flat, all Ambient Lighting products use Photoluminescent Technology to filter out harsh light and refine the appearance of the complexion. All products in the palette are universally flattering and deliver multidimensional luminescence to every skintone, making it appear softer and lit-from-within.

This palette contains six shades:

  • Iridescent Strobe Light - A soft pink pearl powder that gives a refined glow to the complexion.

  • Dim Light - A neutral peach beige powder that blurs imperfections and highlights the complexion.

  • Diffused Light - A soft, warm, pale yellow powder that conceals redness and gives skin clarity.

  • Luminous Flush - A champagne rose blush fused with luminous light to evoke a candlelit glimmer.

  • Mood Exposure - A soft plum blush fused with mood light to brighten the complexion.

  • Luminous Bronze Light - A medium tan shade fused with luminous light for a softer, candlelit warmth.

    Photoluminescent Technology: The optically transparent particles alter the appearance of the skin by manipulating and refracting favourable light. The result is skin that looks smooth, even, and enhanced- not masked. The soft-focus technology helps to minimize the look of wrinkles and imperfections, neutralize discolouration, and emulate the appearance of young, healthy skin.

    Compact design and large mirror ideal for travel.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from can't live without this now! This is quite simply amazing - for someone who has little time for myself in the morning, this makes skin look immaculate and healthy with minimal effort. I adore it. The blush colour is the one bit I use least but having all the shades in one compact is super convenient and I would highly recommend!

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant and justifiable! Brilliant product. I have all 6 ambient lighting powders, and three of the blushes, but this is still totally justifiable ... because it's just perfect for taking away on holiday, work trips and mini breaks ... it's a whole face in one brilliantly sized palette. I use it with a Space NK powder brush I bought a few years ago and find that it picks up the product perfectly and is small enough to use for the blushes and plump enough for the powders.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Flawless airbrushing (but you need special brushes) I bought this on a whim when it was last on sale at Christmas having been blown away with the amazing job the assistant did on my face just with these powders. And they are ridiculously brilliant: they make your face look like you've been soft-focused, without looking weird up close. My reservation is that because they don't contain talc, normal brushes don't carry the powder at all well. In fact I went back to the Hourglass counter to get a tutorial on how to use it, and ended up buying the little goat hair brush for the powder, and the sponge to apply and blend the highlighter. Probably a sucker's move, but I ADORE this palette and wanted to be able to use it properly. So be prepared for a fairly massive spend on it, but on top of your usual base and so on you'll be rewarded with a really gorgeous, candlelit finish.

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Never Wrote a Review So Quickly So I would like to start by saying I have always always steered clear of any sort of finishing powder . I have dry /dehydrated skin and always thought powder - especially under eye powder would be like rubbing my face with cement . I could not have been more wrong - I have watched so many beauty bloggers rave about this palette that I thought right I am diving in even if I dont like the finishing powder I can use them for eye shadows and still have the blusher /bronzer. Really really beautiful finish to the skin - cannot stop looking at my face /my skin . I made use of the full palette to apply my make up this morning after watching a beauty blogger use it for the following : To set undereye concealer . To bronze (slight contour) Blush Highlight Strobe Then all the remaining swatches as shadows . Totally worth the money- here's why : Easy to travel with as you only need to take a eyeliner /lipliner / Lip gloss or stick /foundation . They are very pigmented so I foresee this palette lasting the longest time . Goes on like silk & is weightless on the skin. Lasts all day - not much need to re-apply . One palette so many different options . Makes you look like you have victoria secret's skin . Sooooo beautiful . Well done hourglass - beauty in very portable , devine box .

    Rated 5 out of 5 by from Honestly a new holy grail product of mine I recently purchased this; from just one use I am amazed by how beautiful it is. I was super sceptical about purchasing this product as it is pretty expensive, however after swatching it in my local Space.NK store, I went for the splurge. The limited edition strobing highlighter is ultimately amazing: the slightly pinkish shade may look off-putting, but on light to medium skin, it looks amazing. The other Ambient Lighting Powders are also amazing. The blushes and bronzer in the palette are extremely pretty - they give a great glow. Overall, this palette is literally life goals in a compact package.
