I’m sorry, I had to title today’s post that, I’m sure you get we will be breaking down some new, some iconic and some not that the brand aimed way to high for and it just, flopped, hard. Anyways, wonderful Saturday to you all! Tomorrow is St. Patrick’s day which used to mean a lot of alcoholic beverages for a lot of different people, maybe I will go out and have a few but my man is working and is a lead chef in a restaurant so, it’s a bigger night for anywhere that has booze on the menu. I actually stopped drinking, and I wish I had a huge from the bottom up story or waking up in strange places or something but I don’t really, alcohol just isn’t good for your body, skin or mind. Plus it’s very easy too cross a line when you drink that you can’t come back from. So I guess all I can say is, be safe, be with friends, and be smart.
Alright, so now that we got that out of the way, let’s talk about Hourglass luxury beauty, and yes all items talked about will be added into the giveaway if you have been following any previous post TGIF! WhiteWithStyle | M X T C check that out and pop back to continue, I can wait! I don’t mind! I absouloutly love Hourglass Vanish Stick foundation, I think it’s one of the all time best products out there, pop culture would also agree with me, and you know what they say, don’t mess with a classic – They came out with a full liquid version of Vanish, with some big and I mean big claims ➡️ no primer needed ➡️ half a pump to do the entire face ➡️ second skin natural finish! Hourglass said that it they feel its the future of foundation.
Weightless, instant full coverage is delivered through the formula’s innovative coated pigments—allowing for seamless application and a long-wearing, second-skin adherence. A natural finish is delivered through light-refracting microspheres, blurring and smoothing any imperfections for virtually perfect skin. With all of that being said there is a lot of mixed reviews so put every claim to the test over two weeks to find out exactly what was up, I found that it does oxidize quickly and become shade(s) darker quickly, it sticks to dry areas and really shows off any little flake of dryness, there is no natural finish this is drying and matte, make sure if you choose the route of no primer, use a rich moisturizer and bring a touch up compact if you’re going anywhere because I found that it lifted on and around the nose, chin and sides of the eye, strangely.
I would say to go into your Sephora and ask them to make you a good sized sample because the sample jars that Sephora has are supposed to fill for a two week use and give it a try because it is also more exspensive the iconic stick formula.
$56.00US, 32 shades on Hourglass.com
Ambient® Lighting Edit ➡️ Volume 4, I love these little palettes so much, and I know a lot of people don’t understand Ambient® Lighting from Hourglass but its kind of like different color settings on a ring light, cool, warm, etcetera but brought to life, when you understand how to use these powders they can change your makeup game forever and the palettes are a good way to start to collect them – I could do without the hot pick metallic shell though I wish they would have kept it more gender neutral as they do but pink is a guys color also, I guess, just not mine.
➡️Formulated with photo luminescent technology to capture, diffuse and soften surrounding light for skin that appears softer, younger and lit from within.
