Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit – Surreal Light
Five beautiful textured powders housed in a stylish marble case. The limited edition Hourglass palette is very attractive, but what does it offer other than aesthetics? Hourglass are a self confessed innovative beauty brand. Their website describes “Complexion products infused with groundbreaking active ingredients to create unbelievably surreal skin”. The best way to sum up their products is they ‘play with the light’. The Surreal Light palette includes a finishing powder, a bronzer, two blush and a highlight. All of the products are exclusive never before released shades.
This is not just another contour palette. The Hourglass Surreal Light palette leaves a less chiselled, natural and glowy finish.As a makeup hoarder, this palette is unique in my collection. It’s great for those days when I’m in a hurry or want a fresh, natural look. The natural finish, is ideal for those who freak out at the idea of contouring, or dislike the ‘Kim K’ look. The palette itself is very small and compact, this makes it perfect to slip into your makeup bag. It has a large adjustable hinged mirror inside the lid, great for on the go! The clasp clips into place securely so it won’t pop open in your bag. The case feels sturdy and the matte finish won’t get fingerprints or scratches like the signature shiny Hourglass casing. This palette doesn’t come cheap, I bought it from Mecca NZ for $127 NZD! To say whether or not it is worth the price is really a matter of opinion. To give you an idea, I will use some good old fashioned maths (all prices in New Zealand Dollars):
