Hourglass Surreal Lighting Edit.

Deep breaths. I realise you’re eyeing up the most incredible face palette ever to exist. Take a moment, have a lie down and come back if you need to. I get it, it’s a beauty.

I just knew I was going to get my hands on the new Hourglass Surreal Lighting Edit, I saw the promo images months ago and I knew I needed it.
You may have noticed that I never really enter in to the whole new collection palettes thing, or hype up new releases, mainly because the shades are usually hues I already have, or the packaging is gimmicky.


Enter the Surreal Lighting Edit. Perfectly packaged in a marble case, complete with stunning, simple gold lettering.
The five flawless shades within are all new, unseen before shades. Which is great news for me as I already own the Ambient Blush Palette, along with quite a few individual blush shades and more than enough of the Ambient Lighting Powders.
I did not need doubles of the shades, so I was overjoyed when they announced the news of unreleased shades.


This is a complete face palette, offering everything you need to get that supermodel-esque glow. Now I have such a perfect collection of powders, I can’t imagine I’ll be using much else!

Out of all my highlighting products, I love the Hourglass Ambient Lighting offerings the most. They’re just so naturally perfecting – whereas a lot of the other highlighters out right now make me look like one big chunk of glitter, these offer a multi-dimensional glow that blurs imperfections, corrects redness, and smoothes over the skin like nothing else I’ve come across.
In short, they’re flawless.

In the palette there is;

Surreal Light; the nude all-over face powder on the left that offers that awakened, perfected look to skin that seems unachievable without a bit of help from Hourglass!
Surreal Glow; this is the peony pink shade top middle, it’s swirled with Surreal Light for a truly mesmerising finish to the complexion. I can imagine this will look perfect on fairer skins.
Surreal Bronze Light; a neutral bronze hue mixed with Surreal Light to create an effortless everyday bronzer that warms and adds radiance.
Surreal Effect; this is my favourite in the palette, the cool pink tones are swirled with a warmer peach for a magical blush hue that adds just the right pop of colour.
Surreal Strobe Light; that peachy pick bottom right, a dreamy pop of majestic warmth to add a flawless radiance to any look.


The shade selection is nothing short of amazing; the palette has pulled together the most perfect pairings, and I’m already smitten with such a beautiful addition to my collection.

The Surreal Light palette is available to pre-order right now, priced at ยฃ69.
It will be making its way to you at the end of the month, so not long to wait for this little piece of heaven!

Will you be treating yourself?
