Hourglass Illusion Tinted Moisturizer in Ivory Review and Swatches

It took me several months to form my opinion about the Hourglass Illusion Tinted Mositurizer. But I am finally ready to share my thoughts.

‘Illusion’ comes in a gorgeous shimmering golden bottle which is pretty heavy and looks properly luxurious which is always a bonus.

I have a shade called Ivory which is a second lightest shade which has a yellow under-tone to it. There are six shades in general and each retails for £45/ $55.

The brand promises a visibly tighten and lifted skin within an hour, intense moisturising and hydration (thanks to hyaluronic) which minimizes the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. This product is also water-resistant and free of oils, fragrance, paraben, gluten, sulfate and phtalate.

I don’t find the formula to be  sticky but it does have a rather strong scent which some lip products have; but I personally don’t mind at all.

I hope you can see how beautiful and

Hourglass Calligraphy Liquid Eye Liner Review and Swatches

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 and
