There has been so much confusion around the new Ambient Lighting Edit palette launching from Hourglass, and the reason is, there are two! I get it now! We have the Edit 4 palette coming in October but first we have this one, the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Unlocked Palette. I have all the info right here.

So I have been getting lots of questions about the Hourglass launches for Holiday 2018 and I haven’t really known the answer until now! The thing is, there’s usually one palette, and I saw it at the Space NK Press Day and swatched featured it. That one was the Ambient Lighting Edit 4 Palette, and it launches in October (full details in that post).

This year is a bit special for Hourglass because they have made a pledge to become completely vegan by 2020 (they are already 80% of the way there) and to celebrate they are launching the Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Unlocked Palette which features a special new symbol with an ‘H’ and a bunny to signify the brand’s support of the Nonhuman Rights Project.

This new symbol shows when products are 100% vegan and the Holiday 2018 launches will be the first to have it. More importantly, Hourglass will be donating 5% of the profits from the sale of the Unlocked palette to the Nonhuman Rights Project. As an aside, the Unlocked name was inspired by the documentary  Unlocking the Cage which moved Hourglass founder Carisa Janes to action.

Anyway, on to the palette itself!

  1. I love Hourglass products anyway, but I love them even more now for their commitment to non-human rights. I hope other cosmetics companies sit up and take notice, particularly ones currently expanding into China whilst being fully aware of all the extra suffering they will create through the Chinese conducting animal tests on their products.

  2. It looks like a gorgeous palette! I can’t wait to see your swatches and hear your thoughts on it. I will definitely be picking that up.
