I have coveted Hourglass makeup since the moment I first laid eyes on it, so when I finally got my hands on my very own product I was THRILLED. This beaut was actually a limited edition set from last Christmas so you won’t be able to find an exact replica now-a-days (sorry!), but you can still get your hands on their other blushes and bronzers so I decided that reviewing it would still be worthwhile. So here goes!
The first thing that instantly catches your eye about Hourglass products is how FREAKING BEAUTIFUL they are. The packaging is always superb: high quality, large mirrors, and beautiful metallic hues are pretty much a guarantee. And the product itself matches the luxe look of the exterior; the shimmery, marbled texture of all their blushes gives them a very high-end, lavish feel that matches the high price tag. But the most important part about this product is not only that it looks great, but it also works flawlessly.
What I love in particular about all three shades in this set is that surprisingly they all look completely natural when worn. The first shade applies as a beautiful, soft peach flush that’s perfect to give your cheeks a flirty pop of color that effortlessly blends in with the rest of your makeup. The bronze shade I love using when I’m only applying minimal makeup that day, and I want to give my skin a healthy, sun-kissed glow to add a little warmth to my face. The last shade I was a little more hesitant about at first (uhm purple blush?!), but I was pleased to discover it goes on as a very natural looking mauve-color, that looks as though you just naturally have nice and rosy cheeks. So bottom line, no matter which shade you use, the colors are perfectly curated so that each one will give the appearance of a completely natural, effortless makeup look. I have been using this palette every day the past few weeks and no matter what type of makeup look I’m going for, this blush palette can achieve it!
The slight downside of Hourglass products is definitely the high-end price tag, however, I can confidently say that you are absolutely getting your moneys worth out of your purchase. Are there probably cheaper products that can match similar effects? Maybe,sure. However, if you’re looking to treat yourself to something a bit nicer and special that you know will work, this is definitely the way to go. You won’t be disappointed I promise!
