The Ambient Lighting Palette has become a beauty blogger’s HG must-have — what is the inspiration behind it?
When I created Hourglass, I wanted a brand that would stand apart from all other luxury brands. I wanted us to focus on innovation from start to finish and wanted those science-driven products to not only produce results, but still feel and look luxurious. and supple. After the product launched, we held a consumer study to research more into the foundation’s skincare benefits – those with oily, acne-prone skin saw dramatic, visible improvements in their complexion, and their skin was less greasy overall. Growing up, my mother had pink light bulbs in all of the lamps throughout the house. She loved that hue because it was the softest and most flattering for the complexion, almost like candlelight. This concept was the inspiration for our Ambient Lighting Powders. After the powders launched and became more and more popular, we wanted to offer a selection of them in one palette. When we created the Ambient Lighting Palette, we included two of our bestselling shades – Dim Light and Radiant Light – plus a third that was, at the time, exclusive to the palette. The latter is now available for individual purchase as Incandescent Strobe Light in the Ambient Strobe Lighting Powders collection.
