So here is the first Hourglass product that I am going to review. It is a Calligraphy Liquid Eye Liner.
It is a “refined felt-tip precision eye liner designed to create striking, defined eyes without tug or skip.” This is a best selling products from the brand (along with their primer and foundation).
Now I do love my Illamasqua Precision Inks but these from Hourglass have a different applicator so it’s a different story.
What do I like about this product:
The best thing is that it’s easy to apply it! It has a precise and steady applicator so it’s unlikely that you will make a mess. I use mine to draw a very precise line as close to my eye lashes as I can to get that defined look. I usually just draw a very fine line.
It’s waterproof andRead More
I am happy to write about the new ArtDeco collection for Spring 2011 which is called Coral Kisses.
“Sensual and feminine lip colors, eyes and nails are dominating the trend look Spring/Summer 2011. Seductive lips in complementing coral shades make the defining look for the season. Warm, emotional eyeshadow shades in dark brown or shimmering gold-bronze are the fitting beauty companion for harmonious eye makeup. This time the artistic corn poppy beauty box ART DESIGN 11 is inspirated by the international artist Carlo Ferrari.”

If you follow me on twitter you probably remember that I am very impressed with the Hourglass Cosmetics and I’ve promised to share my opinion about several products that I’ve tried.
But first of all let me share something exciting! Their new products for Spring 2011! Amazing, only last week I was wishing for the new cheek products from the brand and now it is confirmed that they will have some… Plus I’ve included Gina Brooke (Hourglass Artistic Director and Celebrity Make-up Artist) recommendations on how to use both products.

This duo of creamy, forget-me-not shades will be sure to have you blushing beautifully in no time. Wear alone or pair together to create a custom flush of colour.
I absolutely love this beauty story and can’t stop looking at the photos so I thought I’d share with you.
The model is Kirsi Pyrhonen and the make-up is by Sophia Eriksen. This is a story for the Muse Fall 2010 and the photos are by Samuli Karala.
There is something about about the model’s look that just captivates me plus the makeup is flawless, perfect and is a joy to my eyes. There is also something about the cat, I have mixed feelings about this Oriental cat but he/she ( I just can’t say “it” when it comes to a cat) definitely catches my attention…
Cat eyes and red lips always look hot
