Review || Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit

The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit has been on my 'To-Review' list since I received it for Christmas but, since my blog had to be neglected in favour of school work, I never got around to reviewing it. Even though this product was a limited edition product and I don't believe that it is still available (although it still says in-stock on the Liberty's website, so you might be in luck), I still wanted to review it as, only one of the powders is not available as a single product, and it was too beautiful not to dedicate an entire post to! 
First of all, the top row is the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powders, which I think might be my favourite part of this palette. From left to right there is Dim Light, a pale gold-beige shade, Iridescent Light, the only new shade, a slightly pink shimmery shade, and Diffused Light (my favourite) which is a slightly yellow toned shade. I love using these powders to set my makeup, to add a really subtle highlight or to add on top of a cream highlight to set it in place and to add a little more shimmer.

Below the powders are two blush shades, Mood Exposure, a light plum shade and Luminous Flush, a pink blush with gold mixed in. I love both of these blushes as they are such gorgeous shades, perfect for both day and night and they are also incredibly pigmented, so a little goes a really long way.

The final product is the bronzer shade, Luminous Bronze Light, the perfect bronzer shade for adding a bit of extra glow to your skin and is the lighter of the two bronzer shades, so even works for those of us who have pale skin. Like the blushes, it has a marble pattern so has a light and dark shade of bronzer mixed together which creates a really gorgeous colour. Again like the blushes, it is really pigmented so a light hand is needed to avoid being too bronzed.
All of these powders last really well on the skin and have a gorgeous glowy finish which is prefect for those of us who love to have really glowy makeup. I would highly recommend these powders and I will probably be buying some more shades of the blush and maybe even the powders!

Have you ever tried any of the Hourglass powder products?
