As you’d expect it’s an absolute beauty! I have all the info for you here along with photos of the brand new packaging, new shades and swatches too. For me, it wouldn’t be Christmas without one of these stunning palettes.

Make sure you check out the full Holiday 2020 collection to get a peek at the Sculpture Unlocked Palette and the limited edition Confession lipstick.

Also, keep scrolling for all the previous editions of this palette.

What is Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Sculpture?

This is a limited edition Ambient Lighting Edit for Christmas 2020 and rather excitingly, it features a mix of bestsellers and brand new shades. There are 3 new powders and 3 of the best selling powders from previous Ambient Lighting releases. The casing is the limited edition and described as a polished gold compact, with architectural facets.

Where to buy the Sculpture Palette available and how much is it?

The Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit Sculpture is £81 and available now at Hourglass online. Last year’s Ghost edition was £75 for reference. That has been quite a few comments on the price hike on my Instagram reel video of the palette.

The palette is set to go nationwide and is expected to be  available at the following retailers later in the month:

  1. Oh wow I completely forgot about Hourglass’s holiday palettes! With all the beauty Advent Calendar releases it’s hard to think of much else at the minute lol
    I can’t wait to see the new shades in the Ghost palette and I will definitely be picking that one up. I bought the Unlocked edit last year and regretted not picking up the Volume 4 edit as well as I’ve been wanting to have a palette containing both dim and diffused light. I’m so excited and I’ll be keeping an eye on your blog for any updates, I doubt I’ll miss any info as I’m on your page daily-it’s like my beauty bible at the minute! So thank you for keeping us all informed and up to date I most certainly appreciate all the work you put into your page and YT channel xx

  2. This looks beautiful! Thank you so much for sharing this with us?

    How would you say the new bronzer shade compares to the existing shades? I had been planning on this being the first year I actually buy one of these palettes, but I am very fair skinned and wonder if all the powders would work for my skin tone?

  3. I am a bit confused, there will be the ambiant lighting ghost palette (this one) and the unlocked ghost palette as well (the same as last year with the new ghost packaging) ? But de also a blush quad (no details yet) ?
    Btw love your blog always the latest news !

  4. Love these palettes, I buy them every year! I know there is a blush quad palette too but any word of a deeper version of the full palette or is this the only one this year?

  5. Feel a bit disappointed in this. Can’t help thinking the clear plastic looks a bit cheap. I think with the previous ones the metallic look made you subconsciously forget the palette was plastic, even the surreal one was a marble effect finish. This is just so obviously plastic and also having no colour doesn’t frame each pan as prettily and show off the colour of the powder. Not saying it will definitely stop me buying it! Just don’t like the packaging as much as previous ones…
