Hourglass Ambient Lighting Volume III Palette and Ambient Lighting Edit – Universe Unlocked Review | Demo | Swatches

I enjoyed making this video as I have been intrigued by Hourglass Cosmetics finishing powders for a few years now. I was only able to quench the thirst when I purchased my first palette from them early this year. You guessed it, I yearned for more. hahaha The only reason why I decided to get these two at the same time is because, I was approved for the Hourglass Pro program, where in they give 30% off to pro Makeup Artists and 20% off to students of Makeup Artistry. You’ll have to apply for this.

I forgot to mention in the video that the Ambient Lighting Edit – Universe Unlocked palette has a certain weight to it. It is the heaviest amongst the three palettes BUT I like the tin packaging. I like that there are no raised surfaces on it, which makes it perfect to be stored in my makeup kit without eating up uneccessary space.

I hope you’ll enjoy this video, I certainly enjoyed getting to know them!
