When Tyna called me a couple of weeks ago to let me know that the latest releases from Hourglass had arrived, my Ooo’s were echoed with hers. We’re HUGE fans of the luxury line. But oh, how those Ooo’s would intensify as she started going through the package! We received three of their newest products for Fall.
First up, their Primer Set, a duo of their best-selling primers. I’ve heard raves about their Veil Mineral Primer. It has an SPF 15, evens skintone and gives you that smooth canvas that primer fans adore. Solar Tan Self-Tanning Primer goes one step further by giving you a natural, glowing touch of color. Honestly, I’m a not a huge primer fan. So I knew we should give this to a tester who’d really appreciate the quality of this duo.
Next up, their gorgeous Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Dune (champagne shimmer/deep olive shimmer). This is one of the most awe-worthy duos I’ve seen in some time. On top of the colors being breathtakingly beautiful, with their tiny flecks of gold shimmer and deep tones (if you’re a green eye shadow fan, like me, you’ll flip), it’s packaged in their unique 360° swivel compact. The lid smoothly swivels at any angle, making application a breeze and keeping your hands free for the high quality brush that’s included. I had to pass on this piece as well, only due to the fact that the item to come had my name written all over it. But this is a duo I will be purchasing…
“There’s also an Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss in a color I can’t find on their site” Tyna tells me. I get excited, “what’s it look like?” I ask. “Like a sparkly fire, it’s called Siren, it’s very you”. Wow, was she right!
This Sephora exclusive shade was only released a week ago and it may just be the most “holiday” lip gloss I’ve ever seen (that’s it above, in all it’s glimmery glory).
I already have a love for the Extreme Sheen collection. I think it’s one of the best lip glosses on the market; creamy, super glossy, really long lasting. But Siren has made me fall even harder. Fire is a very accurate description. It’s a reved-up metallic shade of red touched with orange, totally rich and expensive looking, like the shiniest ornament on your tree. But something about it makes me think of a muscle car too! It’s, in a word, stunning.
Here’s the Hourglass interpretation of the items, how pretty is this?
