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.

I bought this the day that it came out at Sephora because I thought it would sell out in the same week potentially and never be seen again like all of their other good products. I still cannot understand why cosmetic companies that are higher end especially come out with something this awesome and then discontinue it LOL. Aren't they in the business of making money long term? This is one of those products that I need a backup because it's so phenomenal. I've been looking on mer. because I'm not rich and I almost bought one tonight until I saw that hers had leaves ingrained all over the top of the case and my case is smooth. That gives me pause. It looks like it in every way but I'm not digging it and there was no explanation in her description as to why hers is different than everyone else. So there goes that. But one thing I want to say is everyone tells you when you're over 40 you have to get away from these kind of highlighters. I can understand that from a traditional standpoint so you can age and to the grandmother type perhaps over time without distractions of young people clothes or makeup. I am not interested in being traditional so I'm still here and I'm 47. The most reasonable explanation I was given about why you can't wear it after 40 is because it settles into fine lines and pores on your skin. Okay then. I have fine lines but they're nowhere near my highlighter area and my pores are exactly the same as they were 20 years ago. I guess I will keep an eye out for fine lines in my cheekbone area and should I see those pop up I'll discontinue using beautiful makeup. Until then I'm going to do what I can to try to make myself look as good as I possibly can with what I have since I'm not rich. Thus the merc. That's what it's all about really for all of us is making the best of what we have using these excellent tools. I think if I had to give away all of my highlighters but one I think I would pick to keep The Hourglass strobe palette. it is totally worth it but I can't bring myself to pay full price for a backup which is what I'm searching for a right now. They will sell out and I do not doubt that they will never ever make it available again no matter how many millions of people use it every day. So jump on it while you can because it's great

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

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 .

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

Love! It's a great little trio, I mostly use the first and second colors though. The last color is a little too dark for my lighter skin. It is very long lasting and beautiful. Highly recommend!

I really wanted to love this since I had heard amazing things about it. The packaging and highlighters are beautiful but unfortunately they just didn’t show up on my super pale skin ... I will be returning this to Sephora

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.
