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.
