Re: HOURGLASS THREAD

@Mcakes bhahaha I just noticed in the picture you posted in your OP it lists all the colors lol.... I posted in the Holiday thread so just repeated it here lol

Re: HOURGLASS THREAD

That's perfectly fine 😄 You have it nice and legible lol

Re: HOURGLASS THREAD

Anyone seen/try this?  It's up on their site. I'd be curious to know people thoughts on it... pricey though.

Re: HOURGLASS THREAD

Is that the super expensive mascara?  I remember reading about it a while back and thinking the price must've been a typo 😄

Re: HOURGLASS THREAD

yes it is @Mochapj we were discussing it in the Beauty news thread 🙂

Re: HOURGLASS THREAD

Quick question---How do these powders wear on textured skin? I've been eyeing all of the Hourglass Luminous powders for a while, but I feel like shiny/glittery face products accentuate the mild texture on my cheeks.

Re: HOURGLASS THREAD

Posting some photos here of the Vanish Seamless Finish foundation in Buff.

 

I daresay that this is the foundation that matches me the best out of everything I currently have. I was a tiny bit skeptical when I got home since I saw that the small swatch on my neck turned pink. It's still a *tiny bit* pink compared to my neck, but I think my neck is impossible to match as it has such an olive/green hue to it, plus it's the lightest part of my body after my face.

I'm looking a bit dead in the photo above. I stayed home from work today since I'm recovering from an injury and had an appointment to go to. Here's the full look after I put on a bit more makeup (eyeshadow, lipstick). I do have some dark undereye circles and hyperpigmentation from past breakouts, in these photos I'm not wearing any concealer at all.

Re: HOURGLASS THREAD

So beautiful, @k617! And are you wearing one of those metallic Lise Watier lipsticks again? I really, really want to get some of those; you make them look incredible! ♥

Re: HOURGLASS THREAD

Thanks @Gwenhwyfar, this one is actually Colourpop Maneater (from the Ultra Metallics)!

 

Just looking at my photo though, I'd say that Lise Watier Crème Brulee would be a close match 😄

 

I hauled more of the LW metallics... on the day I wore Tiramisu (a BEAUTIFUL almost duochromey brown-pink) I became re-obsessed and went out and bought Sugar (warm baby pink with golden shimmer), Shortcake (cool purply pink with metallic finish), and Shiraz (dark mauve with slight metallic finish). That day I swatched every single LW Gourmand lipstick tester they had to make sure I didn't miss any 😄

 

I now own 9 or 10 of these LW lipsticks!

Re: HOURGLASS THREAD

I just bought this foundation stick in Buff. I was checking it out in store near the front and a SA approached me and asked if I wanted to be matched since she couldn't wait to play with the foundation. I agreed and was impressed with how it applied and blended out. It claims full coverage which I'm sure is possible but I prefer the lighter coverage that comes with buffing it out. Excited to use this!

Re: HOURGLASS THREAD

I really have no idea what color to pick for myself (for the foundation).  I was thinking Buff or Warm Ivory.  I'm light with golden undertones and currently wear Dior's Airflash in 201 and it's a perfect match.  Any suggestions? Thanks!

Re: HOURGLASS THREAD

 

@sabrinas I don't use Airflash but am 21 Linen in the Dior Nude Air Serum. I'd assume 201 in Airflash is pretty darn close to the 21 in Linen (Airflash numbers are in hundreds vs. other foundation numbers are just double digits?) I was matched to Buff in the Hourglass foundation!

 

These blend out very nicely. Shell is a match for my face colour which is a couple shades lighter than my neck. Ultimately I went with Buff but honestly, both would have worked.

Re: HOURGLASS THREAD

Warm Ivory may be too dark for you; Sabrina @ thebeautylookbook said warm ivory is slightly dark for her. She is usually a 3-4 in Chanel.

Re: HOURGLASS THREAD

I went through the shade descriptions and here are some possible matches from lightest in the "light" range to the darkest:

Linen - very light, warm undertone

Buff - light, warm undertone

Warm Ivory - light medium, warm undertone

Sand - light medium, golden undertone

If you're thinking between Buff and Warm Ivory I'd probably go with Buff because it is easier to warm up the face with bronzer etc. 

Re: HOURGLASS THREAD

Attractive collection.Would love to know about soft-pink

Re: HOURGLASS THREAD

Hi @PCaroline! Which soft pink were you interested in?

Re: HOURGLASS THREAD

I'm not sure how many of you have Ipsy or if this has already been posted, but you can redeem 1000 points for a stick foundation!! 

Re: HOURGLASS THREAD

Thank you! I was able to redeem the 1000 point I had to get this. I don't usually wear much foundation but I figured it's an awesome value and free so I will try it! 

 

hopefully I picked the right shade! 😉

Re: HOURGLASS THREAD

Awesome!! Me too, I'm excited to try it. Ipsy really never has good rewards. I think the last time it did was when the Too Faced Bon Bons palette came out

Re: HOURGLASS THREAD

@Tjrenter I know! When they do have anything good I miss it.  So I am glad I was able to redeem for this! Thank u again for the heads up!!! 🙂 

Re: HOURGLASS THREAD

That's good to know, thanks @Tjrenter 🙂
