Hourglass Just Came Out With a Brand-New, 100% Vegan Highlighter Palette

There's something magical about the soft, iridescent veil we get from an Instagram filter. No matter how tired or dull our complexions appear in the daylight, this temporary digital fix provides a bit of respite, even if it doesn't translate in the real world. The goal, of course, is to re-create the same ethereal glow we get from an app on our physical selves—not too shimmery, not at all stark, just that kissed-by-an-angel luster. Thankfully, we have several favorite highlighters that ignite a major glow-up, though there's a new kid on the block that just may be a filter in powder form. We're pleased to introduce to you to Hourglass Ambient Lighting Unlocked.

Hourglass's Ambient Lighting palettes are always fan favorites, the sleek compacts almost as pretty as the glimmering pans that reside inside. Though this time around, something is different, aside from the six brand-new shades of highlight, blush, bronzer, and finishing powder. It's the brand's first 100% vegan palette, just a small bite of the big-picture plan Hourglass has to become the first 100% vegan, cruelty-free luxury beauty brand by 2020. If that all doesn't sound good enough, 5% of all profits from the palette will go to the Nonhuman Rights Project, an organization that works to secure legally recognized fundamental rights for animals. Pretty cool, right?
