Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

Hey y'all! The Velvet Story Lip Creams are up as app exclusives, perfect timing as it's last day of the sale 😉

Hourglass Velvet Story Lip Cream 

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

It looks like Hourglass recently added three new Equilibrium items as Nordstrom exclusives.

 

After thinking about it, this puts their skincare firmly in the same range as La Prairie, Cle de Peau, Sisley, Shiseido, Dior Prestige, etc... hardly any brands in that tier of luxury beauty are cruelty-free, and Chantecaille is the only one putting any energy into color cosmetics. 

 

I think they looked around and saw blue ocean in high-end vegan makeup, so they've decided to start assertively positioning themselves as "the" mainstream prestige CF+vegan brand. 

 

If they ever manage to genuinely get their act together in shade range offerings, I'm all in. This should be interesting to watch for a year or two 🍿

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

What gets me is the items listed as exclusives are avaliable at other retailers (or at least BlueMercury) so either Nordies is confused or HG is double dipping.

 

The eye balm is to thick for me but that night serum? I NEED it in my life and it's been sold out everywhere since launch. I am curious to see how they expand in the next few years as a lot of the clients that gravitate towards Chantecaille for its vegan/cf aspects don't know what HG is or that it even exists (in my market anyway). I hear 'I've never heard of this brand' so many times a week and the ones that get it for color generally gravitate elsewhere for skincare so...we'll see how this goes.

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

I JUST Saw this product on the hourglass page and must get one.  I'm going for the scarlet color!  Did you get one?

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

@loveyall I’m debating the red or berry. Was so excited to see these pop up during the sale! It seems there’s never enough blush right now! I like the highlighter sticks so hoping these are great also. 

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

thanks for the tip on the highlighter sticks. I have been eyeing those for years but always went in another direction.  I am def going to let you know what I think of scarlet.  I say try the berry and see if you like it! It's an exciting time to try product.  I think hourglass gets blush right so am hoping they apply their expertise in the stick formulation (I will say that I was nOT a fan of the vanish stick foundation, though). 

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

I agree @loveyall , their blush is one of my most used favorites and hope the new sticks are amazing. The highlighter is very smooth and packs a fast punch but it blends well. I like it. Yup I ordered some blush so will see how they perform and look forward to your thoughts as well! 😊 (Same thought on the foundation stick by the way. Not my favorite sadly.)

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

@Sunnysmom  I got the Scarlet (Revel?) color one and just tried it.  It is a STUNNER in color payoff and ease of building/application.  It's like strong but not in a loud way and beautiful.  I'm very happy with the color and the product so far.  Like this could be a game changer.   Going to test out wear time. 

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

Here are my shades @loveyall , Adore, Devoted and Revel. I agree on how wonderful they feel. Nourishing yet beautiful color payoff and blend like a dream. I could use it on it’s own which I usually don’t do but this stayed on well for me. My favorite is Adore because even tho it is bright it can blend down so well and still get me to the fresh cool toned pink color I love. Sadly Revel is a bit too warm orangey based on me. I was so surprised. I knew it would be warm but not this warm. Glad it works so well for you! Devoted is more pink than my arm pic shows too.  I’m glad that Adore can do the pinky red shade whether lightly applied or more heavily tho it sure isn’t needed! What a beautiful product! We expected no less! @itsfi ahem I’m sorry, it’s really really great. 😆 More blush you say?! @blackkitty2014 tagging you just in case you want to see these also! 59384FC4-CC68-49C2-905B-3E899A9C0674.jpegRevel, Adore, DevotedRevel, Adore, Devoted

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

Oh my these look amazing!!! How’s the staying power on these?? I’m a newbie with cream blush!

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

Adore is gorgeous! I might need to get that next!  Yes; Revel is warmer, but it works for my complexion.  I'm so happy you love this product because I truly do, too.   

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

Oh I’m so glad @loveyall ! I’m waiting for mine to arrive. Isn’t that so great when you are really happy with your decision! 

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

@loveyall, the scarlet color looks stunning! 😍 I’d love to know what you think of it if you decide to pick it up. These look good! 

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

@itsfi I got the Scarlet color one and just tried it.  It is AMAZING in color payoff and ease of building/application.  I'm very happy with the color and the product so far.  Like this could be a game changer.   Going to test out wear. 

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

Wow @loveyall, that’s high praise!! And great to hear. Though my wallet is grumbling after hearing it as well. 😂 

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

@loveyall I didn’t get one maybe others on here did.

Re: The HOURGLASS Thread

These two products have been at Nordstrom off and on for years already, so I guess they plan to start making them available to other retailers 🤔
