There are so many luxury beauty brands out there with sleek packaging, beautiful marketing campaigns but not many perform as well and as consistent as Hourglass.
Hourglass produces a high quality collection of capsule makeup with a range of muted and tasteful colours.
I am a big fan of their base products, I have the Veil Primer and the Vanish Seamless Stick Foundation. for a good 2-3 or so years. There are a few new additions to my collection and here are some mini reviews of each product:
Veil Primer glides on smoothly and has a thin consistency, does not feel thick or silicone-y. This has a little pore blurring quality and creates a matte finish.
Vanish Seamless Stick Foundation is one of my favourite foundation of all time. it is lightweight, has really good coverage and can double as a concealer. This stays put very well (when used with Veil Primer). I swear by this foundation when the weather is hot and I need my foundation to last. My tip is to dab a few dots around your face, a little more on desired areas and blend with a damp Beauty Blender.
Veil Translucent Face Powder is the latest addition to my Hourglass family. The texture is fine and soft, doesn't emphasize dryness. I dust a little under my eyes, t-zone and wherever I have some concealer on to set. I struggle with a lot of loose powder being too drying or powdery and this is my new favourite even though this is the most expensive loose powder I have ever spent on.
Ambient Lighting Palette is a magical life changing product. This blurs the appearance of pores and gives your skin an expensive creamy glow without being too shimmery. I dust this all over as a last step. The bronzey shade is also perfect as a subtle bronzer for my cheeks. The lightest shade works as a highlighter too. I don't think I can finish my makeup without this product or travel without this.
