Product Description

A limited-edition palette of powders that provide the brightest highlight to the skin. Each shade is formulated with intensely concentrated, multifaceted pearl particles in varying sizes and refraction levels to give the most reflective glow to the high points of the face. The velvety texture ensures a smooth application as it glides across skin to reveal your most intense, amplified highlight, while the concentrated formula utilizes photoluminescent technology to intensify the way light reflects on the skin. Absolute strobe light is a soft pink metallic pearl powder for a captivating highlight. Pure strobe light is a pale gold metallic pearl powder for an exquisite highlight. Lucent strobe light is a rose gold metallic pearl powder for a magnetic highlight. This palette contains: - 3 x 0.10 oz/ 3 g Ambient® Metallic Strobe Lighting Powder in Absolute Strobe Light, Pure Strobe Light, Lucent Strobe Light It is formulated Without: - Parabens - Sulfates - Phthalates This palette is formulated with photoluminescent technology: the optically transparent particles alter the appearance of the skin by manipulating and refracting favorable light. This leaves skin looking smooth, even, and enhanced not masked. The soft-focus technology helps to minimize the look of wrinkles, imperfections, and discoloration, while emulating the appearance of young, healthy skin.

These powders are so silky and glowy! It's a beautiful sheen without any glitter or sparkle. I can't wait for more shades and individual compacts to be released! Beautiful highlight.

I cannot stop using this highlight. Hourglass makes some of the most blinding yet glow from within type highlights. It's not chunky and doesn't leave glitter on your face. I feel like this wouldn't be flattering for deeper complexions so I hope they expand the range.

This product is totally different than their individual highlighter. These shades give your skin a wet look but also beaming amazingly. With my fair complexion, I only use the first two shades on my face, but the darker one works great for my eyelids. Get it while it’s here, guys

I’ve been dying to try this. I heard so many great things about it. And thoug all the shades are pretty, I don’t think it’s worth the price. They’re honestly not much better then some drugstore Strobe highlighters I’ve found. Save your money.

Swatches don’t do this justice. Once applied to the cheekbone, it is a wet, very blinding highlight. It does not make texture more noticeable as glides over the skin. All colors on there own are beautiful, and even work on my fair skin.

These highlights are super gorgeous. They are highly pigmented. I have to use a light hand to blend them out. It is very expensive. But you do get your moneys worth. I recommend this product if you like a blinding type of highlight

These are perfect if you like a subtle inner glow highlight they're very easy to work with and you can build up the intensity to how you prefer. It is a little expensive but it's worth it because the product lasts forever .

LOVE this palette so much. I’m such a highlighter fanatic, and I keep buying more to add to my collection. This palette doesn’t disappoint: super creamy formula, easy to apply and blend, and has the prettiest shimmery sheen that doesn’t look like a child-like.

This is amazing but this works on just light skin tones. This formula is so good it’s creamy and buttery. They are very highlighting and metallic but they are natural. They aren’t glittery, and it melts into the skin

Woahhh!!!! Best best best highlighters of all time. Doesn't accentuate pores and texture. Sits beautifully on the skin, it melts into the skin and doesn't feel fake or too much. But it is INTENSE!!! Love these!!!

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.
