There’s been an exciting announcement from Hourglass this week. The Hourglass Ambient Metallic Strobe Lighting Palette launched originally as a limited edition highlighter palette for their Holiday 2017 collection.
Every year, Hourglass offer a stunning palette of their Ambient Powders and it’s always limited edition so it sells out quickly. Whenever the palettes sell out, they never get restocked as they are limited edition and the Hourglass Ambient Metallic Strobe Lighting Palette was one of their most popular face palettes to date.

Another big piece of news is the introduction of an Hourglass UK website. Until this week, Hourglass only had a US website and those of us in the UK had to purchase Hourglass via stockists like Cult Beauty.
The three powders included within the Hourglass Ambient Metallic Strobe Lighting Palette are:
- Highlight – Absolute Strobe Light – a soft pink metallic pearl powder for a captivating highlight
- Highlight – Pure Strobe Light – a pale gold metallic pearl powder for an exquisite highlight
- Highlight – Lucent Strobe Light – a rose gold metallic pearl powder for a magnetic highlight
“A cult-favorite returns: Originally released for Holiday 2017, the Ambient Metallic Strobe Lighting Palette is back as a limited edition this summer.
With a smooth velvety texture, these highly concentrated metallic strobing powders provide the brightest, most amplified highlight to the skin. Use them to create a bold, buildable glow with added dimension.“
The Hourglass Ambient Metallic Strobe Lighting Palette features their Metallic Strobe formula which are said to be formulated in a sheer base with concentrated ultra-fine micro pearl particles in varying sizes and refraction levels to give the most reflective flash of light.
Their concentrated formula uses Photoluminescent Technology to intensify the way light reflects on the skin, taking your highlight to an entirely new dimension.
The velvety texture ensures a smooth application as it glides across the skin, and the 3 flattering shades that can be used wet or dry in varying levels of intensity.
The Hourglass Ambient Metallic Strobe Lighting Palette is a really stunning palette, and the swatches look so pretty. I think it’s really exciting that Hourglass has chosen to bring back one of their limited edition palettes, as they might continue to do this for past palettes if this relaunch is successful.
If you were gutted that you missed this palette back in 2017, make sure you snap it up asap as it’s a limited edition relaunch so it won’t be around for long, again!
