Hourglass Makeup Collection for Autumn 2016 and Holiday Palette

I have already posted a preview of the HOURGLASS Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick, and here are new products that are coming from the brand for AW16/17.

First of all, there is a new palette Ambient Lighting Powder – Surreal Light ($80) which will be a LE for Holiday (out if you are Sephora’s VIB).

The shades are:

  • Ambient Lighting Powder – Surreal Light
  • Ambient Lighting Bronzer – Surreal Bronze Light
  •  Ambient Lighting Blush – Surreal Glow

And all of them are new and exclusive to this palette.

There are also two new products for the eyes which are already available, unlike the palette. And they are:

Sparkling Eye Liners I Am Loving

My favourite beauty product over the holidays was definitely Illamasqua’s Ore pigment, a glittery bronze which is so-so gorgeous, I highly recommend. But, besides the shimmering eye shadow, I’ve re-discovered some of my festive-appropriate eye liners. And my top two were:

Aqua Blue and Turquoise Eye Pencils for Summer

Spring/Summer is the perfect time to experiment with makeup,  the prefect time to add a pop of colour to your look! And what better shade to try then aqua blue or turquoise, the shade that represents the sky and water?

You can wear aqua as you would wear a regular black or brown eye liner, or inside the lower waterline for an interesting accent.

Daniel Sandler Long Lasting Waterproof Eyeliner in Aqua Velvet Review and Swatches

I already reviewed Daniel Sandler’s Long Lasting Waterproof Eyeliners. I have five shades out of six: Black Velvet, Brown Velvet, Purple Velvet,  Grey Velvet and Green Velvet (Blue Velvet is the one missing).

Rouge Bunny Rouge Quartz Eyeliner Devotion Ink in Tanzanite Essence Review and Swatches

I have already reviewed Rouge Bunny Rouge’s Quartz Eyeliner in Amethyst  Essence but this week the brand actually launched a brand new shade – Tanzanite Essence.

And, oh my goodness, it is gorgeous! It is a mid-toned blue with silver shimmer. But RBR describe it in a more sophisticated way, as they do everything: “toned down medium blue, ablaze with opalescent sparkle”.

As I have already mentioned, this is a beautiful colour, and I loved wearing it on my (brown) eyes today. Although it is shimmery, it doesn’t look over the top for a day makeup. You can also build up the intensity and the thickness of the line, which is shown on the swatches below.

Also, as mentioned in the previous review, in my opinion, these eye liners are just perfect for
