I want to love Hourglass. I really REALLY do. I think some of their products are amazing, and others… are a hit or miss situation. I’ve tried the lip stain and cheek stain and ended up returning them but their eyeshadow duos? Just lovely.
You know how you read on a beauty blog or watch a YouTube video and people describe the eyeshadow as “buttery”? I never really understood that until I touched these shadows. It’s like touching the softest most luxurious powder. Smooth and pigmented. It’s worth the high price tag for sure.
It comes with a small brush which is usable but I just prefer to use my standard brushes simply because a tiny brush means it’s all up in my eye and it’s a bit hard to maneuver.
The mirror swivels. Why? I have zero clue. I could maybe understand on a larger palette but an eyeshadow duo? I don’t get it.
I was a bit sad that the lighter minty blue shade of the Lagoon duo just… it’s a bit sheer for my tastes. It can be built up but compared to the brighter blue side that you barely have to touch to get uber pigmentation? A bit of a let down.
Thankfully the Exhibition duo doesn’t have such an issue.
I really want to get more of these duos but due to the $38.00 price tag, it’s going to be awhile before I’m able to do so!
