02 Feb Review, Swatches: Hourglass Cosmetics Modernist Eye Shadow Atmosphere Palette – Spring 2015 Collection
Keeping it elegant and cutting edge, HourGlass Cosmetics brings on the luxury with the new Modernist Eye Shadow Palettes totally fit for a beauty loving queen. Although I’ve tried Hourglass products before, one thing I love about this beauty brand is the attention to detail, and the sleek packaging is no exception. Even upon opening up the palette comes six breathtaking shades looking like the exotic sands of the Sahara.
Possibly the most beautiful shadows I’ve ever seen, these sultry shades are made with an innovative multipress technique. And with a creamy and easy to control formula, expect each hue to provide amazing blending and coverage.
Back in the old days, (hello ’80s and ’90s!) you had to use two or three tops of each shade to get that bombshell effect. That meant you had lots of full pots of unused shadow. However, you can create many different eye looks with ALL of the shadows inside this palette.
From matte to metallic, you’ll want to explore each and every eye combo possible. I loved the Atmosphere palette for starters, as it provided me with handy cool neutrals you can wear to any occasion. Whether you like a pale ivory, taupe or charcoal tinted eye, expect an airy and high pigmented effect upon shadow application.
For the full Hourglass effect, be sure to check out all seven different palettes for gorgeous, glimmering eyes. From earth tones neutrals, each beauty treasure will satisfy your beauty lust, leaving you thirsty for more. So, go on ahead and collect all seven! You definitely won’t be sorry you did.
