The HOURGLASS Thread

As a longtime Hourglass lover and addict I figured it was time BT had a dedicated thread to one of our/my Smiley Wink favorite brands!

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

I know this is a really old product, does anyone know which shade of the ambient lighting powder is the closest dupe for Incandescent Light that’s exclusive shade to ambient lighting palette (the middle shade of the trio)? Tysm

 

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

@maghk the Incandescent shade is described as a "An opalescent pearl powder that brightens the complexion with a celestial glow." The closest in the Ambient lighting powders is the HOURGLASS - Ambient® Lighting Powder - Ethereal Light which is describe as "an opalescent sheer, cool white powder that eliminates shine and softens light to give your skin a radiant appearance". From the sound of it, the Ethereal Light might be less luminous. However, in the HOURGLASS - Ambient® Strobe Lighting Powder - Incandescent Light describes the shade as " An opalescent pearl powder imparting a celestial highlight" so maybe that's a little bit closer? I'd try and swatch them next time you're in store and see which one is closer to what you want.

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

Is anyone else's Brilliant Nude in the quad much lighter than the single? I know the marbling of the shades can alter how the appear but mine is almost a pale bronze highlighter compared to my single.

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

The Ghost collection is live at Sephora. Did anyone wait to get it here? (Even Beautylish released it earlier.)

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

Yes and no. I  waited and ordered the lipsticks from the collection, but I talked myself out of the palette and quad (and I wasn't ever thinking of getting the eyeshadows).

 

I have so many hourglass powders already, and so many blushes from other brands that I forgot about in my collection, I decided to try making my own ambient and strobe blushes by mixing and matching with them all. I have to say though, what really helped me avoid buying these holiday items was that many of the shades didn't really call to me when I saw the swatches -- plus, the amount of time I can tell it will take to do the above project, and the way I feel bound to give a try to products I already own.

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

I have been wanting an HG blush palette since 2017 but also reluctantly passed on this one as I only like 1-2 out of the 4 colors. I ended up buying a mini mood exposure which has been on my wishlist for ages. 

 

 

Also PSA: cultbeauty's discount on the hourglass holiday palette (with 20% off over 100GBP) equals about 61$ USD and comes with free shipping. The blush palette would end up being about 36$ USD but is unfortunately sold out now. I saw this on the deals thread but wanted to repost here since many people seem to be buying full price!

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

@Harobedb  - No.  I picked up my ghost collection and ambient lighting brush at Blue Mercury last week.  They had them in stock and I was the only one in the store so they brought the whole collection out from their stockroom for me to swatch, try and purchase.  As of today, none of the local Sephora stores in my area have it in stock. 

RE: Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

That sounds fun!

Re: RE: Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

Hi @itscarin - oh it was! 

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

@MCSSavvy  Good for you! While I'm waiting for mine to arrive, what are your thoughts on the collection?

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

@Harobedb  - I actually put my thoughts down a little further down in the thread about the palette, quad and shadows.  I've used the palette a few times and quite like it but I put more detail down a bit further in the thread if you are interested.

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

Thanks, I will look!

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

Yes @Harobedb ! I used my $100 note on the blush quad and eyeshadow trio Smiley Happy

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

@SurprisedLemur  I had a $100 reward I was sitting on, too. I just applied for the Sephora credit card, for the 15 percent off on your first purchase. I added a few more things to the Hourglass palette and blush quad, and paid approximately half price (total was around $300, and discounts were around $150.) I'll pay that off in one lump sum, so no finance fees. Smiley Happy I'm feeling pretty happy with myself, that I sat on that $100 code until there was something I wanted.

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

@Harobedb that's an awesome deal you got! I always try to save my reward for something special too, not just for restocks Smiley Happy

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

That is cool that you were able to stack savings. I thought it couldn't be done at sephora!

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

I think I saw somewhere that the Ambient Unlocked would be released in the gold packaging in the UK. Did I make that up?

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

@makeitup305  -- If you search google for Hourglass ambient lighting palette unlocked then click on images instead of view all you will see a photo of the palette that is from hourglass.com.  If you click on that it takes you to their page and it shows it is out-of-stock with a wait list.  I've signed up for the wait list but haven't received an email.  The packaging is the same as last year but further down in the thread someone posted a preview from UK where it will be sold at Selfridges and it is in the Ghost packaging.  Not sure if the wait list will lead to notification that particular palette is being re-released but I thought never hurts to give it a whirl. Clearly, I have no inside info and had stumbled across it when I was trying to find swatches for Ghost and the Ghost blush quad.  

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

@MCSSavvy I think the one I saw on a UK YTers video was in the Ghost packaging as well. I bought it last year so I'm not on the hunt for it but I know some people wish they could've gotten it and I can't blame them. I think it's the best and most well-rounded palette they've put out to date. Now, if they released one a few shades deeper as well, they'd definitely kill it.

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

Hourglass announced on insta - Ghost will be available 9/17 on their website and 9/27 at all other retailers. ..
