I was wanting to buy this for the longest time but was so afraid of the big price tag. I am a big fan of the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder. So I knew this would be awesome. At last, I bought it even though I have deep skin tone and all these colors look way lighter for my skin tone. But what a surprise I can wear all three of them. My go-to highlighter has been Becca's Champagne Pop but I cant wear it whenever my skin becomes flaky and bumpy because it emphasizes all the bumps on my face. This, however, is perfect!!! I am so glad I pulled the trigger on this because it does not accentuate my bumps nor is it blindingly shiny. I don't have to think about my skin issues before using this. Highly recommend! Even for deeper skin tones!

I absolutely love it and find it perfect for adding a beautiful glow to the complexion, including the eyes. The powders layer nicely with other powder and cream products as well as liquid formulations, melding like a dream with the skin without emphasizing pores or texture. Like most Hourglass complexion products, the metallic powders have a soft focus technology that helps to minimize the look of wrinkles, imperfections, and discoloration, while emulating the appearance of young, healthy skin. The pigment is very impressive and the metallic, almost wet-like sheen is every highlighter junkie’s dream – and albeit quite intense is yet still very wearable.

Good product! As I'm getting older I'm not so much into a blinding highlight anymore as it does bring out texture, lines and pores on the face I've been going for more of a natural glow and thats exactly what this product does! It's definitely not an intense highlight so if that's what you like this won't be for you! I enjoy this because it gives a more natural glow from within highlight it sits on the skin beautifully I cant say enough about how pretty it looks on my face. Sometimes I even use a big fluffy brush and dust it all over my face and it just makes my face look so nice radiant and glowy. I definitely recommend this to older woman that want a nice subtle highlight I think you will love this and it's worth every penny in my opinion!

This LE holiday Hourglass Metallic Strobe Palette is 100% worth the$62 price​ tag! You get 3 stunning metallic highlights that give you that intense 'wet' metallic look. This is a completely new and updated formula from the previous hourglass strobe light powders and imo. Not only is this a beautiful product, it doesn't emphasize texture or pores, melts seamlessly into your skin and can be applied wet or dry with a brush or sponge. Each individual color is stunning and can also be worn all together to make your own custom shade. You a pink shade, a champagne shade and a beige/rise gold shade. The powders are incredibly soft and finely milled, smooth and creamy. Its absolutely stunning. You get the traditional mirrored packaging in a silver color for the holidays. Hourglass is of course a luxury brand, but never disappoints. If highlight is your thing, your going to LOVE this.

This is an absolutely beautiful palette. The first two shades (the rose gold and the yellow gold) work great on my skin tone (I am light-medium with yellow undertones). I think the third shade would work better with a tan. What I really love about this palette though is how it sits on the skin like a sheen - its not glittery and it doesn't accentuate texture. It can be a soft sheen or be built up to be stronger, and it is absolutely beautiful on the skin.

I just bought this during the VIB sale after hearing Kathleen lights rave about it. It kept going in and out of stock and I saw this it was limited edition so I was worried I wouldn’t be able to purchase it. Once I saw that it was back in stock I purchased it right away and I’m obsessed with it. I’ve been using this in conjunction with the highlighting vanish stick and the glow is real. I love pairing the 2 together!! Love love love this palette!

I had been eyeing this product for such a long time and finally took the plunge.  It is gorgeous!  It is pricy but it will last such a long time that I can justify it by telling myself that I won't need to buy highlighter for a very long time!  The colors give such a metallic wet look on the skin.  You can combine any of them to customize the color.

Wow What a Trio!
This palatte is gorgeous! Don't let the price tag scare you away! This Hourglass trio is my first purchase from this brand. The colors are beautiful, highly pigmented, and are super easy to apply. Use a little for that natural glow, Double up and blend for a night out high shine. I have been experimenting with this palatte and have used the lighter shades blended on top of my eyeshadow to make my eyes pop! The versatility and ease of use is a huge bonus. I was worried that this trio would be too much for my 50+, finely lined, and medium complexioned skin, but it is stunning! Time for me to look into this brand. If their other products are of this quality, I'm going to go bankrupt!

Im not one for sparkles in my highlighters but when I went to my local Sephora store I searched this and let me tell you there is NONE I swatched each color on its own and then came to mixing all 3 together and I fell in love!!! I love a blinding highlighter as well so this is perfection ..I didn’t get it due to the price which it retails for $64 I believe correct me if I’m wrong but it’s definitely something I hope to get as a gift and I highly recommend you getting this highlighter if you’re more of a blinding highlight #GiftCrush Hourglass Ambient Metallic Strobe Lighting Palette

not worth the price one bit. these are chalky and fade after minutes. all of the colors look the same. returned it because it was such a waste of money! can get such better highlighters at the drugstore. was super disappointed cause I heard good things, but was not worth the price at all

Do these show up at all in medium to darker skin tones? & is it that same soft powdery style of highlight?

does this have the wow factor people are saying it does? i know the previous ambient strobe highlights weren't really that good, and i've read some reviews saying this is better, and more noticeable.

Does this show up on fair skin tones?? Or does it kind of just blend in? (For reference I'm Gobi in Nars)
