A Love Letter To Hourglass

Beautiful packaging, gorgeous palettes and illuminating formulas, it really is no wonder that Hourglass Cosmetics was one of the most Instagramed brands of 2016!


It was that damn Golden Ambient Lighting Palette that first caught my eye and it’s apparently not just me! If you believe everything you read in the papers, Jennifer Aniston, Angelina Jolie and Madonna are major fans of the brand too!

To say the formulas are dreamy is an understatement. Any selfie queen knows that the secret to a flawless picture is great lighting, but thanks to Hourglass’s Ambient Lighting your ring light is now basically redundant. This unique technology works to capture rays in a way that makes your skin glow and appear imperfection free – who doesn’t want that?! The collection is available to buy as a blush, eye shadow, highlight or even an overall cover-up powder.


Now a great formula is all well and good, but to truly capture my heart you’ll need to photo well too. Wow, that makes me sound shallow… just remember I’m talking about products here and not people! If you’ve seen the latest Ambient Lighting Palette adorned in gorgeous marble packaging, you’ll know that Hourglass has been created with the camera in mind. If you haven’t seen the palette, where the hell have you been?!

I pretty much use all of my Hourglass products daily and each time I open up a compact, I can’t help but admire its prettiness. Honestly, I can only see my obsession (and collection) growing! Each product lasts for ages, gives a beautiful glowing finish and provides endless Instagram opportunities. Yep, I can admit it, I’m in love.
