Hourglass 1.5MM Mechanical Gel Eye Liner Review

Hourglass 1.5MM Mechanical Gel Eye Liner

The Hourglass 1.5MM Mechanical Gel Eye Liner is a brand new product and I’ve got the deets for ya this afternoon.

It’s billed as the thinnest, softest, waterproof gel liner in a pencil form. Here are more product claims:

  • The precision 1.5mm tip ensures effortless control, and allows for lining in between lashes.
  • The unique formula, poured into a slim mechanical component, has the malleability, intensity and staying power of a traditional gel. No pot, no brush, no clean-up required.
  • The waterproof, transfer-proof and long-lasting formula delivers extended wear.
  • The supple, moisturizing formula glides on smoothly and dries quickly.
  • Two clicks is all you need to line the eye. Each advanced mechanical pencil lasts for approximately 17 to 20 uses.
  • Only dispense product as needed – mechanical pencil does not retract.
  • Free of phthalates, sulfates, talc and gluten. No animal testing.
  • Ophthalmologist tested.

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Mood Exposure

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush in Mood Exposure is just one of six new Ambient Lighting Blushes that are out this spring.

So much hype these blushes have received! They have combined the lighting effects of the Ambient Lighting Powder and mixed them with pretty blush shades to create a blush that gives you a soft-focus and radiant look. Each blush has a slightly different marbled finish, some with more blush, some with more of the photo-luminescent lighting effect.

The blush shades are as follows:

  • Ethereal Glow – cool pink
  • Diffused Heat – vibrant poppy
  • Dim Infusion – warm coral
  • Luminous Flush – champagne rose
  • Radiant Magenta – golden fuchsia

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette

Hold onto your hats ladies and gents because the new limited edition Hourglass Ambient Lighting Palette for holiday 2013 is a beaut!

If you aren’t familiar with their Ambient Lighting shades now is the time to get acquainted. I reviewed one of them awhile back when they came out, but this palette is much better in my eyes.

These powders have a high-tech, soft-focus photo-luminescent finish, which helps to mimic flattering light sources onto your skin.

This palette contains three shades including Dim Light (a neutral peach beige that blurs imperfections and highlights the complexion), Incandescent Light (a limited edition opalescent pearl powder that brightens the complexion with a celestial glow) and Radiant Light (a sun-kissed golden beige powder that enhances the complexion with believable, subtle warmth). This kit also includes a mini Veil Mineral Primer for the face.

These are paraben-free, fragrance-free, talc-free, gluten-free and nano-particle-free. I have no idea what that last one means!

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Ethereal for Spring 2013 Swatches & Review

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Powder in Ethereal Light

Hourglass has a new product out this spring called Ambient Lighting Powder. What the heck is an Ambient Lighting Powder? Well here’s the scoop: they are finishing powders that help capture, diffuse and soften the way light is reflected on your skin. They use photoluminescent technology, which means they use transparent micro-sized color-correcting particles that emulate the appearance of younger, healthier skin. They help you glow from within!

These are also paraben-free, gluten-free, talc-free and fragrance-free and come in six types:

DIFFUSED LIGHT: A soft, warm, pale yellow powder. Light your skin with DIFFUSED LIGHT to reduce redness and give skin clarity – like a soft ray of morning light.

ETHEREAL LIGHT: An opalescent sheer, cool white powder. Light your skin with ETHEREAL LIGHT to mimic a moonlit glow – even in broad daylight.

RADIANT LIGHT: A sun-kissed golden beige powder. Light your skin with RADIANT LIGHT to extend a summer glow, or enhance the overall complexion with believable, subtle, warmth.

MOOD LIGHT: A soft, sheer lavender pink powder. Light your skin with MOOD LIGHT to mimic the softest most forgiving light and reveal your brightest complexion.

DIM LIGHT: A neutral peach beige powder. Light your skin with DIM LIGHT to blur imperfections and highlight a radiant complexion with the perfect balance of warm and cool tones.

LUMINOUS LIGHT: A champagne pearl powder. Light your skin with LUMINOUS LIGHT to create a soft, incandescent candlelit glow – day or night.
