In a recent tweet I coined 2016 as my year of the GLOW.  I’ve already vowed to take better care of my skin, but I also want to up my highlighter game.  I am sure that many if not most of us have heard of Hourglass Cosmetics and their extra popular Ambient blushes, bronzers and powders.  This Thursday, the luxury brand has released 4 new Ambient Lighting Powder shades that I am extra excited about and can’t wait to try.


What’s Going in My Beauty Bag for My Trip to London…

I’m heading to London, folks! I’m SO excited because London has been one of my dream cities to visit and this will be my first time. I can’t even believe it took me this long to get there—I’ve been to Warsaw, Düsseldorf, and shoot—a host of cities around Australia and New Zealand as a child but not ever London. I probably would have visited a dozen times in college as I REALLY, REALLY wanted to do a study abroad program in Europe in college but after 9/11 and then another terrorist attack in London, my mom was not trying to let me go. But I’m going now!


Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette in Color Field [Review + Swatches on Dark Skin]


If there’s one thing this beauty fiend can appreciate in a new product launch is when a brand takes great care into making a product look beautiful. Yes, it’s of course the performance of the product that matters the most, but looking great counts on my list, too…lol. Recently Hourglass launched the Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette and sent over shade Color Field for review consideration.


About Those New Hourglass Extreme Sheen High Shine Glosses for Summer? Here’s Me in Ballet

Hourglass Cosmetics added new shades to their Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss and Panoramic Long Wear Lip Liner and sent over some shades for me to try. I seriously need to get more of the Extreme Sheen shades—you know—now that I’m all in the gloss because the formula is AMAZING. It’s like a creamy lipstick and an opaque gloss got married and had exceptional babies together.

I’m a huge fan of Hourglass lip products (the Femme Rouge Velvet Creme Lipstick? AH-mazingly plush and gorgeous) so naturally any addition of colors to the lip lineup has my attention. Take a look at new offerings in Panoramic Long Wear Lip Pencil and Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss for summer…


I Played Around with Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush and Radiant Magenta Ain’t So Bad


Hourglass Cosmetics released a blush version to their Ambient Lighting Powder and of course we beauty enthusiasts went NUTS without really getting to see them in person. In fact, as I type this they aren’t in stores yet—just online at and on for Beauty Insiders—and then many shades (if not all) are already sold out. I managed to pick up two shades Radiant Magenta and Diffused Heat. I put a sneak peek up on Friday and was a little so-so about them, but I finally had a chance to try it over the weekend.
