ONE-BRAND MAKEUP FEAT. HOURGLASS COSMETICS

You know you’re totally enamored with a brand when you can paint your entire face using practically everything from the line. Case in point, Hourglass Cosmetics. What’s even nicer is revisiting the foundation I used to rave about, their Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation (reviewed years back here).

But my skin has metamorphosed from very oily to combination, will I still be singing the same tune?

Shade: SAND

With medium to full matte coverage, this cream-to-powder foundation still has the same formula I used to love. It sets quick so it requires a rather fast application. Even with serum and moisturizer layered underneath, my face stayed matte for eight straight hours with slight dewiness on the ninth or just when I was ready to call it a day. It also blurred pores and concealed imperfections without looking cakey and overdone. With my combination skin (and over-analytical self), I felt the “pulling akin to absorbing oil particularly in my t-zone”. An inexplicable sensation but if you pay close attention, it can’t be excluded from the experience. My preferred application has changed though, I found it patchy with foundation brush but utterly flawless with a damp beauty sponge. With that said, I still declare that this is the foundation truly made for oily skin, acceptable for combination, but not for dry.

On to my one-brand FOTD. For natural looking brows, I rely on Hourglass Arch Brow Sculpting Pencil. Warm Brunette goes well with my skin tone vis-a-vis hair color. I am a bronzer gal year-round and for this look, I am rocking Hourglass Ambient Lighting Bronzer Radiant Light Bronze. I have added a little bit of color on le cheeks with Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Mood Exposure. My kind of nude lips, mauvey-rose that is! It’s Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Creme Lipstick Vintage.

For my eye makeup, I used Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette in Graphite. I applied the charcoal-gray shade on the outer and inner corner of my lid with gold in the middle for a sophisticated twist. I used dark brown for my crease and lower lash line, nude on brow bone, and metallic silver near the tear duct. I finished with two coats of Hourglass Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara.

    Beautiful look. I would be practically naked if I had to do an Hourglass face. I love the brand though just don't own a lot.

    I think I need more Hourglass in my life. Love those brow pencils!

    I haven't tried much more than their powders and blushes, but you're definitely selling the brand- you look exceptional!

  13. November 10, 2015 / 12:41 pm

    I only use their blushers, but I really need to expand into more HG products. I have combination/patches of dry around my nose, so this foundation might not be for me, though. You look gorgeous!

    Gorgeous look! I'm obsessing over Hourglass products as well.

  15. November 10, 2015 / 3:23 pm

    Liquid Powder foundation, very interesting! It really looks great on you but you already have fantastic skin!

    Hawt! I love the sound of that foundation. I need to try it! That lipstick is perfect, too. I really like that Vintage color.
