First time using this when my sister doing my makeup, she use this to set the makeup after the use of setting powder, she added a little bit into my makeup look. It creates a little bit impression that is similar to MAC Prep + Prime setting powder. This is the first time that I saw the different when using this product and without using this product. I personally believe as makeup junkie, I need to have this in my makeup wardrobe but it doesn’t have to be you MUST HAVE items, you can prefer NOT TO BUY but if you did want own up your makeup game then this is the palette that you need to look for and try for.

I buy this in one palette, HOURGLASS come out with one palette for each shade and then now they combined the 3 shade in one palette together with smaller sizes. Considering my skin tone, I purchase this palette.

My sister use Dim light and Incandescent light when she doing my makeup. These 2 shades is suitable for my fair skin tone to create natural looking makeup. This palette can be use if you want to create Korean makeup look or even western makeup look. It is suitable for all makeup.

Have you tried Hourglass Lightning palette? which one is your favorite shades? Spill your tea!
