imageimageNow on to the price and quantity.. $80

Let me start by saying the quantity of product in this palette is small,compared to their previous holiday palette and price is way too much. There is less product in total in this palette (0.294 oz) than in one full size ambient lighting powder or in the Ambient Lighting Palette, which both contain 0.35 oz of product.$80 ? Its disappointing cause I was expecting more product than (0.294 oz).. I ordered this in the first place because I don’t own any hourglass product,and have been contemplating getting one or two of their lighting powder before this came out and I was so happy because I get to try 6 different powder to decide which I love most,so I can get a full size.

Overall I love this palette and am happy I got it,but I rather you get one or two shades you really like,because I see more value in picking up one or two that you’d use often..

imageIf you’re someone who is okay with this pricing issue, then by all means, go for it. The palette itself is awesome for someone wanting to try out the Ambient Lighting line, and the size is definitely travel friendly.

Have a blessed week Beauties..
