Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Surreal Light

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Surreal Light

When I first saw this palette over on Really Ree‘s site back in July I knew I wanted it. I guess you could call it lust at first sight. Not only is the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Surreal Light a gorgeous mix of blushers and highlighters but it also has a marble cover. A MARBLE COVER! It’s a blogger’s dream and the perfect palette for Instagram.

Now I know what you’re thinking, because I was thinking it too, I don’t need ANOTHER highlighter palette. I don’t really. I still love using my BECCA x Jaclyn Hill Champagne Collection Face Palette. But when it comes to makeup, most of the products I own were bought out of pure lust, rather than need. Which is how this beautiful palette came into my possession on Friday. I was at the Really Ree Contributors Party at Space NK and being surrounded by so much gorgeous makeup and fellow beauty obsessives meant I couldn’t say no. I really couldn’t! But I’m so glad I didn’t. I love it!

The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Surreal Light has five new and exclusive shades including a finishing powder, bronzer, blush and highlighter and all of them are incredibly wearable! You have:

  • Surreal Light (large pan) – a sheer nude powder recreating the magic hour of perfect lighting
  • Surreal Glow (top middle) – a pale peony pink blush mixed with Surreal Light for a gorgeous glow
  • Surreal Effect (top right) – a cool, pink rose shade mixed with a soft, warm peach colour for a pop of colour
  • Surreal Bronze (bottom middle) – a neutral tan shade mixed with Surreal Light for a subtle, natural warm glow
  • Surreal Strobe Light (bottom right)– a glimmering peach powder that translates to a gorgeous highlight colour

      I believe diets fail for two simple reasons. 1. They try to get you to do to much to fast and 2. They don’t have enough focus on setting up goals, short term and long. We are obsessed with the right now and not the work involved in getting what we want.

      This series you've been doing this week has been very helpful. Thank you so much! I didn't know you could have Indie bookstores review your books. Great stuff to know!

    Pricey but beautiful, it reminds me of candyfloss for some reason. I love the look of the highlighter it is gorgeous xx

    I have to say I’ve seen a few posts about the palette but your pictures have been the best, absolutely beautiful photography! They seem to be so much more pigmented than I expected, and the whole limited edition thing is making me kinda not be able to control the urge to pick one up! great post 🙂 xx

    I haven’t ever tried highlighting. Not tried this brand before yet either. I think I might give it a try.
