As promised, here is a post on my recent Hourglass Haul. I bought these products from one of my favouritie online stores Zuneta.com.
Hourglass is a Californian brand which boasts cutting-edge formulations and technology in their high quality makeup. From their line I bought the following:
Visionaire Eyeshadow Duo In Suede
Aura Cheek Stain in Petal
Aura Lip Stain in Petal
Visionaire Eyeshadow Duo in Suede - £28
Suede is described as an ivory shimmer, and nude beige shimmer.
The mirror of this compact can swivel 360 degrees, as well as lie flat.
I found the texture of this eyeshadow to be extremely fine. One of the finest I've come across. The powder is very soft to the touch and medium pigmented. It comes with a double ended mini eyeshadow brush which has fine hairs and feels fairly soft.
Swatch of Suede:
Aura Sheer Cheek Stain in Petal - £32
This product is very pricey, but I really love it. It's a lightweight water-based stain that gives the skin natural looking colour with a radiant glow.
The formula is thicker than most stains, which gives me plenty of time to blend it onto my cheeks before the colour sets in. The cheek stain has a twist dispenser, which is great as I can control how much product comes out. It can be applied straight onto the cheeks or applied with fingers. I like to dab it onto my cheeks and use my fingertips to blend.
Petal is a sheer coral-pink. Here is a swatch of it unblended:
This shade is more coral than the peachy-pink shades I normally favour. It's easy to blend and feels nice and light on the skin. It doesn't leave my skin feeling greasy. I'm so impressed with this blush that I'm looking to try out the other shades available, namely Flush (a sheer pinky-red).
Aura Sheer Lip Stain in Petal -£19
This is my favourite and most used product of the three, as I find the shade absolutely perfect for Summer.
Again it is a water-based stain with a twist dispenser. It has a flocked-tip applicator which feels soft on the lips. This lip stain is not as easy to use as it's cheek equivalent. As it's a stain with a sheer metallic finish, I need my lips to be in great condition to apply it. The stain will accentuate any dry parts of the lips.
Petal is a lovely pinky coral shade. Quite a unique lip colour, especially for a stain.
Below is a FOTD of my using all three products.
