Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette Volume III is the third edition of the best-selling Ambient Lighting Palette, launched for holidays. Similar to Version I and Version II, the palette has three shades of Ambient Lighting Powder. I am not new to the formula, they are one of the best face powders out there. They totally changed my definition for a powder, they are super lightweight and never cling to my problem areas and dry areas. The longevity and look of the makeup or even the bare skin are enhanced. I reviewed and compared both the previous versions earlier on my blog.
The key technology behind the uniqueness of these powders is the Photoluminescent Technology. With it, the powder captures, diffuses, and softens the surrounding light to refine the skin's appearance. In other words, the harsh light is softened to work as a filter. Thus, the manipulated light filters out imperfections, pores, and even wrinkles.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette Volume III, the newest edition of the radiance-enhancing palette, features three brand-new shades of Ambient Lighting Powder. There are two finishing powders and one strobe highlighter. The shades can be used individually as well as with other each other. This palette is said to be ideal for medium to dark skin tones but I feel it is very versatile and for most skin tones as the other versions of it.
Below are the shades included in the Ambient Lighting Palette Volume III:
- Eternal Light – it is a golden amber finishing powder that illuminates and enhances the complexion.
- Transcendent Light – it is a warm sienna finishing powder that blurs imperfections and adds a ethereal glow.
- Prismatic Strobe Light – it is a rich copper metallic strobe powder. It illuminates the complexion for a lit-from-within glow.
As Volume I is for a subtle natural glow, Volume II is for a warm, sunlit glow, the new Volume III is for a radiant, multi-dimensional glow. The formula of the powders is similar to the other shades. It is super lightweight and blends so seamlessly into the skin. The shades in Ambient Lighting Palette Volume III are perfect for everyday use as well as for a special occasion. The radiance looks so pretty and natural. It takes the whole flawless meaning to another level. While blurring my problem areas, it makes the skin look so youthful and fresh. In the pictures, there is no flashback.
I like using the Eternal Light as an overall powder or sometimes just on the high points of my face. It gives a beautiful natural glow to the skin. Transcendent Light is perfect to add a little warmth to the skin and even to create a natural shadow where required. Prismatic Strobe Light works so well as a perfect highlighter. It adds glow while giving warmth to the skin. I am wearing all three already and would be perfect to keep wearing till the holidays.
Overall, Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette Volume III is a very versatile palette and perfect for travel too. Also, the powders are fragile, so I make sure to keep them safely inside a soft pouch.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Universe Unlocked is also part of the Holiday 2021 collection from the brand. It is one palette with everything.
A part of these powders, I also love Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette Volume II. They give such a beautiful hint of color to the cheeks along with radiance. I shared my favorite three shades of the blush in the past. 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. I shared my favorite shades of this formula in the past. I love the Ambient Metallic Strobe Lighting Palette that is a must-have for special events and when I want to feel like a star.
