Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Universe Unlocked is the newest palette launched for the holidays. I have always adored the Ambient lighting powders. This vegan and the cruelty-free palette is part of the Unlocked Collection. The collection supports the brand's mission to unlock the cages of wild animals in captivity. They will be donating 5% of annual profits from Unlocked to the Nonhuman Rights Project. The name ‘Universe‘ and the design of the palette are inspired by the unique swirled texture of the bronzer. The bronzer is handmade using an advanced ‘miscelare' technique, meaning no two are exactly alike.
Ambient Lighting Edit Universe Unlocked has two bestselling and three brand-new shades of Ambient Lighting Powder. The cult-favorite (and my personal favorite too) finishing powder recreates the most flattering light sources. I have shared my love for this formula many times. The soft glow and radiance it imparts are unmatchable. The lightweight and smooth powder blend seamlessly into the skin without feeling or looking powdery. The two existing shades are one finishing powder and one bronzer. There are three limited-edition shades of blush and highlighter.
Below are the shades in Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Universe Unlocked palette:
- Ambient Lighting Powder in Radiant Light – golden beige
- Ambient Lighting Blush in Rose Heat (new) – deep berry
- Another blush is Ambient Lighting Blush in Coral Flush (new) – bright peony
- Ambient Lighting Bronzer in Radiant Bronze Light – warm bronze
- Lastly, Ambient Lighting Strobe Lighting Powder in Solar Strobe Light (new) – metallic champagne
‘Radiant Light' works as a perfect finishing powder. I feel the longevity of my makeup is much more when using this powder. It looks so natural and put together all day. ‘Bronze Light' works as a perfect bronzer for everyday wear. It looks natural without any harshness. For highlighting, I am loving the new ‘Solar Strobe Light'. For the blush, both ‘Rose Heat' and ‘Coral Flush' are so pretty. The longevity of the powders is pretty impressive. I love using the bronzing shade and the highlighting shade on my eyes sometimes. It gives a hint of shine to the lids that look so pretty.
Overall, the powders and palette are really good. Also, the shades in the ‘Ambient Lighting Edit Universe Unlocked palette' are one of the best combinations in one palette. They are perfect for the fall and holiday season. There is also the ‘Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette Volume III‘ from the holiday 2021 collection. It is a good option if you are looking for a finishing powder, bronzer, and highlighter in one palette.
If you love cream blush, my go-to is the new Vanish Blush Stick, it is so easy to apply and blends seamlessly. The shades are truly amazing.
