Introducing the
Custom Ambient® Lighting Palette

Create Your Perfect Light with the Custom Ambient® Lighting Palette, available exclusively online & at Hourglass Abbot Kinney.


Build your perfect palette by selecting 3 shades of our 6 groundbreaking finishing powders designed to recreate the most exquisitely flattering light – from ethereal moonlight to luminous candlelight. Each Ambient® Lighting Powder captures, diffuses and softens surrounding light with Photoluminescent Technology.

Available in 6 Shades:
DIFFUSED LIGHT: A soft, warm, pale yellow powder that conceals redness and gives skin clarity—like a soft ray of morning light.

DIM LIGHT: A neutral peach beige powder that blurs imperfections and highlights a radiant complexion with the perfect balance of warm and cool tones.

ETHEREAL LIGHT: An opalescent sheer, cool white powder that mimics a moonlit glow—even in broad daylight.

LUMINOUS LIGHT: A champagne pearl powder that creates a soft, incandescent candlelit glow—day or night.

MOOD LIGHT: A soft, sheer lavender pink powder that mimics the softest, most forgiving light and brightens the complexion.

RADIANT LIGHT: A sun-kissed golden beige that enhances overall complexion with believable, subtle warmth, and also extends a summer glow.

Powder, Pencil, Wax & Brush in One

This mechanical brow pencil has a unique triangular-shaped tip that combines the benefits of powder, pencil and wax in one product to create naturally defined brows.

State of Balance 

A revolutionary nighttime re-balancing treatment that acts as a signal to epidermal renewal. Equilibrium Biomimetic Skin Active Serum relies on a bio-identical Phosphatidylglycerol, the youth lipid found in high concentrations in amniotic fluid, which is found to normalize skin cell growth and ensure cells are differentiating at a healthy rate. The result: radiant, healthy-looking skin created from within.
