Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder Review

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder is not a highlighting powder; it’s a finishing powder. I’ve been on a search for a finishing powder that doesn’t make my dry skin look dull and well, powdery.

The claims: Really there are some hilarious claims like “using photoluminiscent technology” to filter out harsh light which will make your complexion look really great in all sorts of light even flash photography.

I am a fan of Hourglass Cosmetics. I’m impressed with the line’s formula and color choices.

Hourglass Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss

OK, so Hourglass Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss isn’t exactly new. This gloss now has a new, slim packaging with a brush tip applicator. I like the new packaging much better. I’ve always liked the formula. It’s thick but not too thick. It has lots of shine and moisture. I’d compare it to Chanel Glossimer. There are 12 colors in all with a new shade, Child, a shimmery nude.

Colors include:

Primal – a sheer shimmery… Continue reading | 2 Comments

Hourglass Femme Rouge Lipstick

Hourglass Cosmetics is a luxurious brand and the new Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipstick is no exception. I’ve had the opportunity to try the new lipstick line, Femme Rouge, in the shade Nocturnal. This luxury lipstick is actually luxurious.

Formula & Wear: This formula is wonderful! It is a moist formula that actually does live up to its “cushiony feel” and all the other company claims. It contains moisturizing Vitamin E and antioxidants. My lips feel hydrated… Continue reading | 10 Comments
