Hourglass lipstick looks amazing on your eyes!
I already loved Hourglass' foundation stick, so when I saw this I knew I had to try it. HOURGLASS - Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Refillable Lipstick First of all I LOVE the packaging! It reminds me of cigarette holders from the 40's-50's. It's so chic. The formula is amazing, it's not drying for the lips at all. The color Brick Red is the one I was immediately drawn to. It's such a beautiful pure, deep red that is so intensely pigmented and beautiful. The color also lasts quite a while on the lips! I didn't think I'd love this more than I love their vanish stick foundation, but I think I do! Ok, ok, you got me, I love them both the same. They're both insanely amazing products.This is literally the best lipstick I've ever used and I've tried a lot of high-end brands, trying to find one I loved. I'm not a lipstick girl, I prefer gloss, so it says a lot that I'm giving this 5 stars. Even if I scrub my lips before lipstick, my lips usually end up flaking under the lipstick and it looks horrible. This one I had no issues. The color last for several hours, even after eating. I have noticed my lipsticks bleeding lately, but this one doesn't bleed and I don't need liner. I also finally found my perfect "my lips but better" shade in I've Kissed. Only con is the smaller amount of product but I've never used a full lipstick anyway. This time I use my favorite color At Night as eyeshadow for a try,and guess what,it was super gorgeous!This make-up makes me look all tender and feminine.And it is applied totally well on my skin because it’s moist enough!   Thanks Hourglass for this amazing,dangerously glamorous product!

Amazing Lipsticks I Wish I Could Buy In Every Shade💄💄💄
Hourglass HOURGLASS - Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Refillable Lipstick is so cool. You can buy just the lipstick refill and I really love the retro packaging. Its sleek gold applicator is gorgeous and it's easy to carry around, but it's quite expensive weighing only at 0.9g. That's why I gave only 4 stars for rating.  The texture is neither dry nor overly moisturizing. It doesn't dry on the lips, so I'd say it's quite comfortable to use and since it's scent-free, it's reassuring to use, but it's not very long-lasting. 💄I've Been - Deep Rose Brown This is a popular medium-plummy brown shade, and is suitable for all skin tones for fall and winter use. 💄At Night - Brick Red This is my favorite shade. It's so flattering whether it's applied thin or thick! It's a medium-dark, brick red shade which makes your skin look radiant. I really recommend this shade. 💄I Can't Live Without - Red Currant It's a medium-dark plum, violet-toned shade for summer use but I don't really like it.

MINI HOURGLASS HAUL
Picked up some limited edition stuff and restocked my personal hourglass favourites 🥰 HOURGLASS - Ambient Lighting Powder ✨ Shade Dim Light ✨ My go to finishing powder - literally makes my skin looks airbrushed and lit from within. Beautiful colour and beautiful consistency just an all time FAVE. Cannot live without ✨ Got the mini version this time because it’s also in the 6 pan palette HOURGLASS - Confession Refillable Lipstick Duo – Sculpture ✨ First time getting a lip product from Hourglass ✨ This is Limited Edition ✨ The packaging is STUNNING, but I personally wish it was a little heavier. Even though it looks beautiful it actually feels a bit light weight and flimsy? ✨ Two shades - Refillable. “At Dawn” is a beautiful warm rose colour and “At Dusk” is a rich cool red. ✨ I love both colours and the formula is delish! Super creamy and silky, feels lightweight and moisturising on the lips. Amazing pigment (especially the deeper red shade) ✨ I feel like “At Dawn” looks different on the lips than the swatch/ in the tube. On the lips it looks warmer and slightly more peachy but it’s still a lovely colour HOURGLASS - Ambient Lighting Blush ✨ Holiday Limited Shade - Sublime Flush ✨ Really beautiful packaging ✨ This is one of the most stunning blush shades ever - a soft pink infused with lilac. Versatile, pops on a wide range on skin tones, so flattering, subtle glow... I approve HOURGLASS - Limited Edition Ambient Lighting Edit ✨ I mean come on... this palette is gorgeous. It comes with Dim Light ambient finishing powder and the Sublime Flush blush I already said I love + Ambient finishing powder in Diffused Light, a strobe powder in Iridescent, Bronzer in Eternal Bronze Light and another blush in Iridescent Rose. ✨I particularly LOVE the marbled rose blush - Iridescent Rose - It makes your cheeks look so cute and flushed and almost hot to the touch. It deepens up any colour you have on your cheek and it’s just beautiful. ✨ The bronzer is okay, not the best bronzer I’ve used but still a beautiful colour. Not too dark or too light! ✨ This whole compact is amazing on the go, it pretty much has everything you need for adding colour to your complexion. I’m a sucker for hourglass, they really never disappoint... It’s definitely one of my most loved makeup brands out there 💖 Have you tried any of these products?

Best Warm Blushes for Fall 🍂
A change in seasons means a change in make up. The bright corals are being pushed to the back of my drawer and making room for the more warm toned ones. I've been showing some blushes in particular a lot of love this Autumn and I really want to share them with you.  I'm still so happy I finally own the HOURGLASS - Ambient Lighting Blush in Luminous Flush , although I have this one for a good 3 months now. It gives me the most natural flush of colour and is not too rosy, not too peachy but right in the middle. It goes with every single eye make up look I've done so it's a great all rounder! Another very recent purchase is the #Kiko - Kiko Rebel Bouncy Blush[products]#[FourStars] in 01 Velvety Peach. It's a cream-to-powder blush with a very matte finish - in the way that it doesn't have any shimmer in it - but it still gives a nice and healthy glow because it's a cream product. This one had a dark peach colour, almost has a hint of brown to it which makes it perfect for Autumn. Al oldie but a goodie is the benefit - Rockateur Rose Gold Powder Blush Benefit Sugarbomb Blush. I've always liked this one a lot and recently dug it up from under the pile of blushes I own. This one is again very peachy but it's a lot lighter than the Kiko one and it has quite the amount of shimmer to it. It's a very natural colour though. Next up is CLINIQUE - Cheek Pop Blush in Cola Pop – a long, LONG time favourite of mine, although you wouldn’t know it from the lack of wear on the embossed flower! Cola Pop is the shade that got me into wearing darker blushes because I quickly came to realize it was all in your application. You can wear this lightly if you want, but I tend to be heavy handed with my blush because I actually want to SEE it on my cheeks – none of this “barely there” nonsense thankyouverymuch! The very last shade I have to mention is the MAX FACTOR - Creme Puff Powder Blush in Alluring Rose. I love this one for Autumn because of the brown and orange undertones. It's even close to being a bronzer, but it has too much shimmer in it and still has that rosy tone in it so it's just impossible to serve that purpose. It's so pretty combined with a warm bronzer though, it complements it very well.  Sharing is caring. 💕

Ranking My Foundations/Skin Tints
I currently have 10 foundations and skin tints in my collection. I like all of them except 1 (keep reading), and a couple are nearing empty. I love trying new foundations and would like to purchase 1 or 2, but not until I finish some! **Ranked from least favorite to most favorite** 10. HOURGLASS - Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick I have “alabaster” (a bit too light). I had a sample size I completely used up and bought a full size in 2018. It just...wasn’t the same. It is more on the full coverage side and is very creamy. It looks both dry and oily on me 🤯 Another Cherie user gave me a tip for application so I’ll try this again soon. $46 9-8. Kosas - Tinted Face Oil Foundation I have the shades 3.5 (gifted by the brand) and 2.0. 3.5 is way too dark for me (will de-clutter). I purchased a lighter shade, and it’s much better. It is a dry oil formula and super lightweight. Provides very little coverage. Unfortunately, it clings to my dry patches a little too much. $42 7. CLOVE+HALLOW - Liquid Skin Tint I have “03”. The shade range is limited and this isn’t a perfect match for me. It’s a bit too yellow. It has medium coverage and a satin matte finish. I need to prep my skin super well before using or else it can look dry around my nose. It’s about 1/2 gone and I wouldn’t repurchase. Sent as PR by the brand & I am an affiliate. $26 6. PÜR - 4-In-1 Love Your Selfie Longwear Foundation & Concealer I have a sample in “LN2”. The shade is a bit too light and pink for me. Medium-full coverage with a natural finish. I only ranked this lower due to the shade. This comes in approx. 100 shades! $36 5. YENSA - Skin on Skin BC Foundation I have a sample in “light neutral”. Pretty good shade for me. Medium-full coverage, natural finish, SPF 40. It can sometimes look a bit dry on me, but i like it. $38 4. ILIA - Super Serum Skin Tint SPF 40 I have “Balos”. I love this for summer and when my skin is really dry. Super dewy finish, light coverage, SPF 40, wears well. Had good ingredients that actually help my skin look better when it’s really dry. I need to powder it if I use powder products on top. $46 3. COLOURPOP - Pretty Fresh Hyaluronic Tinted Moisturizer I have light 5N. Light buildable coverage, dewy finish, feels moisturizing, and wears well. The shade isn’t perfect for me but pretty good. $14 2. CATRICE COSMETICS - HD Liquid Coverage Foundation I have light beige. Not a perfect shade match (a little more pink) but pretty good. Natural finish, medium-full coverage, very long-wearing. Shade range lacks. $11 1. URBAN DECAY - Stay Naked Weightless Foundation I have 30NN. Very similar formula + coverage to the Catrice + super lightweight. Better shade range. Wears so well! Will always have this in my collection. $39 #CheriePartner

Favorite Foundation/Skin tint✨ #CheriePartner
I’ve always thought that I was a full coverage/medium coverage foundation type of girl, however, my opinion has changed a lot recently! As I got more into skin care and I was improving my skin texture, I didn’t find the need to use such heavy foundations. As I did my research I found that skin tint/tinted moisturizers were the best way to achieve my healthy skin look! I’m my opinion, I feel like they feel much lighter on the skin too! I’ve always thought that heavier coverage foundation made my skin feel like I was definitely wearing a lot of layers whereas using a skin tint you can’t tell you’re wearing anything! #1 COVERGIRL - Clean Fresh Skin Milk Foundation this is ultimately my favorite one at the moment because it really does feel very light and has a little sheer glow to it however it won’t leave you feeling to dewy. In my opinion this is the perfect coverage if you want a light natural look! #2 LANCÔME - Skin Feels Good Hydrating Skin Tint This was the first skin tint that Ive ever tried and really fell in love! I bought this last summer and I was very tan, so it’s not working for me this year, however, I am definitely going to buy one that is a shade lighter to match my current skin tone because this formula is a little thicker than cover girl, however it feels amazing! It honestly feels more like a moisturizer. #3 HOURGLASS - Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick Out of all of them this is definitely the one that feels more like her full coverage foundation. It’s still one of my favorites just because it is a stick foundation so it Allows me to only apply in areas that I feel that needs more coverage. Out of the e three this is the one that I use to go out instead of day to day. They are all great for all skin types and I would totally recommend them!

What I Purchased During Sephora’s Holiday Sale
The most wonderful time of the year brings about Sephora’s Holiday Sale. For anyone who may not know about it, it’s just like the Sephora spring sale where depending on your BeautyInsider status, you get a certain percentage off of anything you buy (there are a few exceptions). Rouge status gets 20% off and early access 10/30 VIB status gets 15% off and early access 11/3 Insider status gets 10% off and regular access 11/5 Here’s what I picked this holiday season: FENTY BEAUTY - Gloss Bomb Universal Lip Luminizer - finally decided to try this based on the hype and man o man this did not disappoint! It smells stupid good, has a buttery consistency and is not the least bit sticky, and the colors are just gorgeous. I picked up Fenty Glow and loved it so much that I went back and got the color Fu$$y too! Buy it! Needless to say I just had to buy the new Fenty Glossy Posse Holoidaze edition which is four new mini gloss bombs. Did I tell you I have a problem with this gloss? I’m addicted. HOURGLASS - Ambient Lighting Powder - I’ve wanted to try this for a while and so far so good. They are very subtle powders that are finely milled and have the slightest amount of reflecting particles in it. I like to use this on “less is more” make-up days: BB cream and this powder, paired with a brow gel and lip balm and BOOM - I woke up like this 🎶 HOURGLASS - Veil Translucent Setting Powder - I’ve been in the market for a new setting powder for quite sometime. I had been using the Coty Airspun and really only using it to set my under eye concealer, but aside from the fact that there is talc in (trying to cut that out as much as possible) I found that it was not fine enough and would cake in my creases. This is so light and soft and works well for a light touch-up during the day. HOURGLASS - Arch Brow Shaping Gel- I haven’t actually used this, but I have high hopes based on reviews. My brows are really the most important part of my “getting ready” routine, but sometimes I don’t want to do a fully filled in brow and I want something easy and not as time consuming (I extremely detailed with my brows). I’ll do an update on this when I post my brow products!! Of course I picked up a few refills of some tried and true products that I constantly repurchase (coming soon to a Cherie post near you). belif - Eye Bomb Gwp the best hydrating eye cream that I have ever tried. ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - Brow Wiz Mechanical Brow Pencil - my favorite brow product of all time. FIRST AID BEAUTY - Ultra Repair Cream - my winter moisturizer. What did you buy with your discount?! Let me know 😻

Luminous with NARS!
I love foundation! Am I fine with my natural skin? Of course! Do I prefer a smooth, glowing, dewy skin? OF COURSE! 😆 For years I’ve been using a mix of 1 drop each Lancôme Teint Idole + Shiseido Perfect Refining Foundation and I really, really love how it looks. Buuuuut I also love experimenting, because makeup is fun. I saw a review of NARS - All Day Luminous Weightless Foundation and wow, it looked gorgeous on the skin. I have many favorites from NARS but I’ve never tried a foundation. So, yep, I bought this foundation! I was able to choose a great color match online. The first thing I noticed was how creamy and smooth the foundation is. It glides on the skin effortlessly and blends really easily. And wow, it gives a luminous, ethereal dewy glow. I tend to be oily, so I prepped my skin with products that aren’t too heavy and I used my favorite HOURGLASS - Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15 . I love this foundation! It’s so pretty on the skin. It definitely lives up to its name, IMO. Would I wear it in the summer with the heat? Probably not, but I’m loving it in these drier months. I was afraid by end of day I would be a shiny mess but it really held up and lasted all day. Is it better than my mix of Lancôme and Shiseido? Not better, just different and I will continue using it. The pictures don’t do this foundation justice. It’s really pretty in person. Have you tried it? Do you like it?

👩‍💻WORK FROM HOME 🏡 BUT U STILL LATE ⏰
Hello ma cherie. I’ve missed you all! 🤪 I’m an office gal working from home in this pandemic. Most of my hours spent at work requires me to be in a zoom meeting at some point throughout the day. Just because I don’t have to physically be at the office doesn’t mean I stopped being a little late. 😏 Frazzled but do not fret. Everyone has their own zoom make up routine and I see you beautiful ladies! 👀 This here is my go to look. I did note down options here with foundation. I only put foundation on when I have blemishes to cover but if I’m good, I just skip it. Dealer’s choice! 🎲 OPTIONAL: HOURGLASS - Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15 Ease on the primer after your skincare routine. 5 min. KVD VEGAN BEAUTY - True Portrait Medium Coverage Shake Foundation Shake well and dab your foundation brush and make spots all over. 8 min. beautyblender - Classic Makeup Sponge Pink Take your damp beauty blender sponge and BLEND it in you’re a real natural Pablo Picasso! 5 min. tarte - Tartist Double Take Eyeliner To create your wing, draw a line matching the same angle as the outer corner of your eye. As close as possible to your lash line draw the rest towards inner corner of the eye. 7 min. ZOOOOOOOMMMMM 👩‍💻 1.

Is Luxurious Makeup Worth it?
While these products are definitely nice to look at, they aren’t necessarily worth the money. BUT it depends on who you’re talking to. For some, the pretty packaging is worth the large price tag, but for others, as long as the product gets the job done it is worth it. These products were each a gift (besides the Rare Beauty - Liquid Touch Brightening Concealer which is the least expensive out of the bunch) so I didn’t get the buyers remorse with most of these! However, I think that’s a great way to go about getting these products! If you can’t afford luxurious beauty products, wait until a holiday and ask for your most sought after products! And if you can afford them and want to treat yourself, by all means that is fine too!

My fav face palette, brings me the perfect look
This is my favourite full-face palette: Ambient Metallic Strobe Lighting Palette from Hourglass. I know how hourglass is famous for its highlighters but let me tell you, although this palette looks like containing three highlighters, this is not a simple highlighter! I bought this after reading tons of positive reviews online and it really doesn’t let me down. What does it have:  Absolute strobe light Pure strobe light  Lucent strobe light  How to use them: This is not only a highlighter, as I said. And since I love the glow so much, I have explored multiple ways to corporate this palette into my makeup and this is amazing how this always looks good at almost every place on my face lol. Here’s a detailed guidance.   I use the first powder as an all over powder. It can blot down shininess and never looks like you powdered your face. People always say that they can’t see the “product” on my face and I guess that’s why this palette has the name because it’s ambient! The powders are meant to give your skin a natural-glow-within type of look.   I use the powder in the middle as a highlighter, especially good for the under-eye area. And since it is the most glowing one in this palette, I’ve also tried to use it as a shimmer to apply on the corner of the eye, which really compliments almost every eye look.  And for the final powder, the darkest shade, I use it to accentuate my contour or bronzer.   I would also use all the 3 to apply all over my face.   My thoughts on this product: I know many brands have their own face palette. The reason I opted for this one is that I am so drawn into the nice subtle glow of these three powders. It’s really hard to describe: It’s not shimmery or metallic-y. I hope the pictures could let you have a sense of it. It is sold at $64 at Sephora. I know it’s little pricy and I do believe you can purchase a similar product for a lot less but, personally, it’s definitely a staple in my makeup collection and I don’t regret buying it at all!

Glowy makeup in literally 10 minutes
Okay, so I literally forgot that I had a Zoom call this morning that I needed to be on camera for and literally had to get glammed up in 10 minutes. I have acne-prone skin and always need my makeup to cover up my breakouts and scars, so concealer is a must for me. Since using Zoom, I’ve noticed that mascara makes a huge difference and can truly elevate your look by lifting up your lashes. Bronzer and blush also make big impacts in the way your skin looks on Zoom; sometimes I’ve found that I look ghostly pale if I don’t add a little color to my cheeks. To save time, I skipped foundation and just spot-treated with concealer (thankfully I didn’t have that many spots and bumps to cover up today lol). I also don’t use powder or lipstick if I’m in a rush - and sometimes I forget to get rid of my mascara smudges (which I definitely did today lol) Here’s my 10-minute routine and the steps/products that I consider essential: Prep: Glossier Futuredew oil serum on my high-points to make my skin look glowy. I don’t recommend using a lot of this product or applying it all over the face since it can be thick and oily. Applying a little on the high-points is how I’ve avoided breakouts. Concealer: Fenty Beauty Match Skin Stix in French Vanilla. I applied it to my under-eyes and then around the spots on my chin and forehead to brighten and conceal. Since it’s a stick formulation, I like to blend it out with a damp beauty sponge otherwise I find it hard to blend out and get a natural-looking finish. This product is also really good for Zoom because of its matte finish, which helps eliminate any the glare from your computer looking like shine. Mascara: Marc Jacobs Beauty Mascara delivers fuller, voluminous lashes in one sweep because of its fluffy hourglass wand. It’s one of my favorite mascaras of all-time and really transforms my lashes. Blush: Charlotte Tilbury Beauty Highlighter Wand in the shade Pinkgasm, which is a liquid blush and the most shimmery, gorgeous pure pink shade and blends into the skin so nicely and easily. I’ve found that a little goes a long way, which is great when you’re in a pinch, otherwise it can be a bit much. I love to apply it with my fingers. Highlight: Saie Beauty Dew Balm in Rosy Gold, which is actually the worst product to use in a pinch; it’s really hard to get the salve-like balm out of the tube. But once it’s out and melted down from your fingers, it creates the dreamiest glow. Bronzer: I always do bronzer last in case I don’t have time for it, but I love the glow my skin gets from Hourglass’ powder Ambient Lighting Bronzer, which creates a natural-looking contour and never looks artificial or caked on. If there’s time, I like to apply a little to the creases of my eyes for a little definition and faux eyeshadow moment. Thankfully I had time today because it made me look so good.

The Best Total Face Palettes Taking you from Summer to Autumn
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Edit - In Ghost   All the different products you need in one palette. Not just eyeshadow but the whole face, six beautiful shades to achieve radiant, glowing skin. All my hourglass favorites into one place a stunning compact, lightweight palette.   Shades: Dim light is a finishing powder to apply all over the face to set your foundation without making your skin look dull like a regular setting powder. Diffused light is another finishing powder that is only meant for the center of the face to brighten the skin and help hide any redness.   Eternal bronze light is the ultimate combination of a bronzer and contour, and it will bring warmth and dimension to your complexion. Iridescent rose and sublime flush are two different shades of blushes that you can mix or use separately.   The iridescent strobe light is a beautiful highlighter that brings your cheekbones forward but gives a natural dewy finish to the skin. These powders made with a particular ingredient, “photoluminescent technology,” that makes them different.   Usually, highlighters accentuate skin texture, things like pores and wrinkles; the ambient lighting captures and softens the light and makes your skin look blurred and filtered.   Best face palette for glowing radiant natural and healthy skin. Luminous finish without it being shimmery with a great buildable pigmentation - Unique blush colors with golden undertones.   The whole brand formulated without paragons, talc, fragrance, nanoparticles, and gluten. 100% vegan and 100% cruelty-free. As you can tell I love this palette   Urban Decay Stay Naked Threesome - Blush, Bronzer and Highlighter Palette   Urban decay is a great brand with good ethics - 100% Vegan and excellent quality on every product. This palette is super pigmented, be very careful, start with very little product because it’s really easy to overdo the look.   A great palette for bronzer, blush, and highlighter in one! The colors are amazing, and they last with three shades to choose from you can get that summer look really quickly.   The product has a silky smooth texture and contains moringa seed oil and antioxidants that treat the face.   It’s a great palette to have in your bag for after work touch up and anything that needs a fast application.   Both have lovely packaging.

a look i’m currently obsessed with
just a look i did last night that i can’t get over because it is so pretty!!! some of the products i used are smashbox - Photo Finish Foundation Primer Super Light i rated this 3 stars because it feels nice, does its job, but i don’t necessarily feel it makes that much of a difference in extending the wear of makeup. smashbox - Studio Skin 24 Hour Oil-Free Hydra Foundation (SHADE 0.1) i loveeee this foundation!!! it looks so flawless on the skin. it is medium to full coverage, & a semi-matte formula; perfect for my combination skin. it doesn’t feel or look cakey either. however, i am struggling to find a primer & powder that works well with this foundation. most i’ve tried make the foundation separate, or look surprisingly flakey. the only con to what would be a perfect foundation!! HOURGLASS - Vanish Airbrush Concealer (SHADE BIRCH) i absolutely love this concealer as well!! it looks absolutely flawless on the skin, almost like an airbrush effect (hehehehe) & it is definitely a full coverage concealer. the only issue i have with this concealer in particular is the shade range. i feel as if it is lacking in that department & therefore i struggle to rate this 5 stars. i cannot bring myself to suggest this product if it is not available for everyone to try. disappointing. ANASTASIA Beverly Hills - ANASTASIA Beverly Hills Loose Setting Powder (SHADE VANILLA) this is such an incredible setting powder. let me preface this with i am NOT AT ALL A FAN OF BAKING!!! i do not bake my face, nor do i recommend others with combo skin to. i cannot suggest this as a baking powder as that’s not what i use it for, however, it does not flake or cake my face whatsoever. it makes it look so flawless & smooth. i have struggled to find a face powder i enjoy, & this has quickly become my favourite. this could possibly be a new holy grail product. i love it!! e.l.f. - Wow Brow Gel (SHADE NEUTRAL BROWN) it does the job. it makes my brows look very fluffy & it is super easy to use. the staying powder is great & it doesn’t clump on my brows nor is it runny. also, the price is unbeatable & the packaging is very cute!! i am sad to say though, you don’t get a lot of product & there’s only 4 shades. MAC - Pro Longwear Paint Pot Eyeshadow (SHADE BARE STUDY) wow. i have been skeptical of eye primers, but this one has changed the game for me!! it really does make the shadows pop & makes the stay on for such a long time!! although i don’t recommend the shade bare study, it’s a shimmer & i didn’t realise until i tried it out!! i have heard the shades soft ochre & painterly are popular for this product so if you are using this as an eye primer, keep your eyes peeled for those shades!! the rest of the products are tagged in the photo!! 💞💞💞

Ambient Glow & Flawless Skin
Hourglass is easily one of my favorite brands for that natural, and radiant look. I’ve had this HOURGLASS - Ambient Lighting Palette for what feels like decades but in reality it’s been about 6 years? I use all the colors separately and mixed together and it makes my skin radiant! When I’m a little more tan I will also go in with my HOURGLASS - Ambient Lighting Bronzer to really sculpt my face and add warmth while still looking natural! My favorite a to conceal is using HOURGLASS - Vanish Airbrush Concealer on spots or over foundation on the high points of my face! This concealer is stunning, doesn’t need to be set; and leaves my skin looking better than ever!

I received one of the new cult
I received one of the new cult favorites, “Scattered Light” by Hourglass and 3 “Liquid Eye Shadows” by Stila so I wanted to do a product comparison with my favorite shimmery neutral shadows. . .................................................... Scattered Light (color: smoke) comes in a pot similar to Tom Ford/Charlotte Tilbury but the texture is not as creamy or light because it has more glitter (vs. shimmer) but it still applies smoothly; the color is a beautiful taupe similar to Bare Minerals “Celestine” powder shadow . .................................................... The liquid eye shadows are as the name implies, liquid vs. cream - they all have beautiful shimmer and apply smoothly with a little going a long way- they do dry fast so you have to apply quickly. Twig (warm chestnut brown) is too dark for my skin tone, but I love Kitten (shimmering nude pink) and Grace (shimmering rosey taupe)- Grace is my favorite (as you can tell, I love a good taupe). —————————————————————— De Bruyere Paris “Pearly Eyeshadow Pencil” in Bubble . Stila “Liquid Eye Shadow” in Twig . Stila “Liquid Eye Shadow” in Kitten . Stila “Liquid Eye Shadow” in Grace . Laura Mercier “Caviar Eye Stick” in Moonlight . Hourglass “Scattered Light” in Smoke . Charlotte Tilbury “Eyes to Mesmerize” in Marie Antoinette . Tom Ford “Cream Color for Eyes” in Platinum . By Terry “Ombre Blackstar” in Ombre Mercure . . Bare Minerals “Eye Color” in Queen Tiffany . . Bare Minerals “Eye Color” in Celestine

My skin type is combination-oily laura mercier - Oil-Free Foundation Primer This one is my favorite. It is both colorless and oil-free, perfect for people with oily skin. Shake it well before use to mix the product well. smashbox - Photo Finish Foundation Primer Super Light This product is transparent and mattifies the face when applied. It blends very well but feels a bit heavy on my face and it doesn't smell nice. However, my makeup did last a long time after applying this beforehand. #HOURGLASS - Veil Mineral Primer[products]#[ThreeStars] It feels like a silicone-based product, leaving a filmy skin texture when used. However, it really brightens up my complexion. Don't try if you mind that one of the ingredients is silicone.

I have found that the hourglass ambient light bronzing powder is perfect for my skin tone. If you are fair toned like me but looking for a bronzer to add just another color to make it look like your sun kissed then this is definitely the one for you. Yes it is pricey but I have had this forever does a little goes a long way

This foundation is so creamy and gorgeous! It has a matte finish and I would normally run the other way. But If I do a good skin prep, I can get away with wearing it. It’s lovely!
