The Hermรจs Thread

This thread is dedicated to all things Hermรจs! While Sephora doesn't carry the makeup line (maybe one day??), that doesn't stop us from wanting these pretties in our collections ๐Ÿ˜‰

Re: The Hermรจs Thread

It would have been fabulous if all 3 turned out to be phenomenal @Titian06, but 2 out of 3 is great. Iโ€™m hoping that perhaps the blending brush may soften a bit with more use and cleaning. A long shot but remaining hopeful. ๐Ÿคž๐Ÿผ 

Re: The Hermรจs Thread

Theyโ€™re so beautiful @itsfi ! I like the looks of the center brush. Thatโ€™s the shader correct? 

Re: The Hermรจs Thread

Yep, thatโ€™s the shader brush @Sunnysmom. Itโ€™s so beautifully soft, but I can still get a good application of color with it. 

Re: The Hermรจs Thread

I do enjoy the blush brush and smaller prรฉcis as well but was hoping to ignore these @itsfi ! ๐Ÿ˜‚ I will try and unsee them. The brow brush sounds great! Wasnโ€™t expecting to hear that either! Enjoy them. ๐Ÿ’ž

Re: The Hermรจs Thread

@Sunnysmom, I don't know if it was because I had lower expectations for it, but that brow / liner brush really wowed me. It stole the show.

Re: The Hermรจs Thread

This is such a cute brush set @itsfi . Do you love them in action? 

Re: The Hermรจs Thread

There are some hits and misses with these Hermes eye brushes @blackkitty2014.

 

All are made in France and all are aesthetically beautiful. ๐Ÿ˜ They are all made of goat hair, with the shader brush consisting of a blend of goat hair and synthetic fibers.

 

The blender brush is the miss for me. Itโ€™s not bad per se and it should work for most people. My eyelids lean on the more sensitive side and the bristles on this one can be slightly scratchy when I use it with a windshield wiper motion in my crease. Itโ€™s okay when I use it to apply a quick wash of color but the back and forth motion in my crease is a little too much, for me. So for those with sensitive skin, this might be one to skip.

 

The shader brush, on the other hand, is really soft & does a lovely job of depositing color on my lids. ๐Ÿ˜Feels very nice going on the lids

 

The brush Iโ€™m most impressed with and  surprised by is the brow/liner brush. I typically pass on this type of brush when theyโ€™re sold individually. Theyโ€™re usually more on the stiff side. I would use them more for tight-lining than for brows and I have a tried-and-true brush for that functionality. But for whatever reason, I decided to pick up this one from Hermes and I do not regret it in the least! Itโ€™s soft!!! ๐Ÿฅฐ Not so much that itโ€™s unwieldy but itโ€™s not stiff like most brushes in this category and shape.

 

Itโ€™s also made of goat hair. I was surprised by that as I assumed it would be synthetic fibers - I mean, I probably should have read the product description more carefully in that regard. In any case, a great, great brush! It may what motivates me to line my eyes more with something other than a liquid eyeliner. That says something.

 

TL;DR: Overall, Iโ€™m glad I picked up all three. The shader and liner brush will be put to the most use. Iโ€™ll use the blending brush as well but sparingly; at some point it will likely serve as a pretty prop for photos, but after I feel like Iโ€™ve gotten my moneyโ€™s worth from it. Until then, itโ€™ll be used for a quick and soft wash of color or for popping a shadow in the outer V or in the middle of the lid, but not for blending in the crease.

Re: The Hermรจs Thread

Oh thank you so much for such a detailed review @itsfi I might need the shader and eyeliner brushes in my wish list then โค๏ธ๐ŸŒน๐Ÿฅฐ

Re: The Hermรจs Thread

I think Santa should bring you one of each @blackkitty2014, and the blender brush so you can try it for yourself. ๐ŸŽ Maybe you should help Santa shop for you this year. ๐Ÿ˜† Itโ€™s all for research, of course. 

Re: The Hermรจs Thread

Okie in case someone wants to see the blue. Here it is . The top 4 are Hermes swatch the TF Gran Paradise then TF Lumiete Dโ€ Hiver. Of all the shades in the Hermes quad, the vibrant blue is the most disappointing shade (not as pigmented as the other 3) but it is buildabke. And @itsfi was right. The darkest blue and the brown wonโ€™t budge, I really like the brown. Itโ€™s a great color

Re: The Hermรจs Thread

Oh, that dark blue looks beautiful @blackkitty2014 ๐Ÿ’™ And now I want the Tom Ford quad even more. But I will keep resisting (or trying to). It probably wonโ€™t last but maybe I can be good for a little while longer? 

Re: The Hermรจs Thread

Stunning pic @blackkitty2014 ! I want it all! ๐Ÿคฉ Thanks for showing us! ๐Ÿ˜˜

Re: The Hermรจs Thread

Fumรฉes. This would be a workhorse if not for the price point! ๐Ÿ˜ญ  I suppose refills help a little bit. I absolutely love the greige round bottom left shade. Has this beautiful shift to it kind of. Neutrals but yet more than that. Best smoky eye when layered or subtle with a light hand.  They do have good pigment as @itsfi mentioned and they are smooth and long lasting especially with a bit of a cream shadow underneath. Probably at least 6 hours tho maybe more? I forgot how long it was but there was still some pretty good color left when I took it off at night. I even used the little brush included which tucks into its own little pocket home in the pouch. Itโ€™s great! Bonus to offset the price?! I wouldnโ€™t say these have quite the luxe feel of CDP or the lighter silkiness of YSL but they are very smooth and blend beautifully! I seldom use the sparkley shade in sets but this silvery grey is more of shimmer and it looks great in the inner corners where Iโ€™m dark. All 4 feel a little bit different as well. (Vegetales and Mordorees will be next up for me if I can persuade someone else living here (or pups?!) for early holiday presents! ๐Ÿ˜†

Re: The Hermรจs Thread

@Sunnysmom @itsfi and all....

I guess I never followed up on my excitement of these new eye palettes.

I refrained from ordering site unseen and waited until a few weeks ago when I would be near a counter to see in person. I am sad to say that I am glad I did as they did not really excite me in person and I left empty handed ๐Ÿ˜ž If it were a lower price point, I might have splurged but not at the 140 CDN a palette.

Re: The Hermรจs Thread

That is just a crazy high price point @ChristalM I donโ€™t blame you one bit. Iโ€™m sure you have other beautiful shadows and you wonโ€™t even miss them then. ๐Ÿฅฐ Or you could ask for one for a present sometime?! ๐Ÿ’ž

Re: The Hermรจs Thread

I love this palette, @Sunnysmom !  If I were willing to spend that much, this is the one I'd get.  Thanks for the lovely swatches! ๐Ÿฅฐ

Re: The Hermรจs Thread

It was for science @Titian06 ๐Ÿค“๐Ÿฅน right?! Itโ€™s not something I am proud of tho but it truly is a lovely formula and color selection! 

Re: The Hermรจs Thread

For the price point, it had better be a workhorse @Sunnysmom ๐Ÿ˜‚ This quad is really pretty! ๐Ÿ˜

Re: The Hermรจs Thread

You got that right @itsfi ! Of course we knew these would be more but wouldnโ€™t it have been great to keep them closer to 95/100 even?! ๐Ÿฅน think the gold group looks like it would be great neutrals too with that pretty brown toasty shade. 

Re: The Hermรจs Thread

FINALLY Hermes eyeshaows!!!!!!!!

Ombres Vegetales

The shadows are pigmented - this is one swipe, no primer underneath, 

 

I was meandering and saw these out. I didnโ€™t have time to play but had a chance to swatch this palette.
