Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette in Color Field

Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette in Color Field

TGIF! Yeah I know, I am supposed to be posting Friday Favorites but yet again I couldn’t get it together in time. This week has been a killer. One of those weeks where I just couldn’t focus on anything. All I wanted to do was sit on the couch and zone out on TV or sleep. Oy. But I do have something pretty for you nonetheless!

The Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette in Color Field is one of six new Modernist Palettes and in my humble opinion, the prettiest one. The other ones include Atmosphere (cool neutrals), Exposure (plums), Infinity (warm neutrals), Monochrome (rose), and Obscura (earth tones).

These eyeshadows look like little miniature colorful mountains. The five colors inside all blend into one seamless palette. The finishes go from matte to shimmery. You can even use the darkest shade as an eyeliner, and apply them wet or dry. They are really beautiful to look at, that’s definitely the #1 selling point!

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
  • Mood Exposure – soft plum

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!
