Mmmm – New Lust Have Brand – HOURGLASS launches in the UK.

7 Comments 03 October 2009

Cult US brand Hourglass launched on Thursday on fab beauty site Zuneta (which also happens to be the only place in the UK where you can get your mits on the super Rouge Bunny Rouge range). This range was originally launched in 2004 by founder Carisa Jones and was only sold in Barneys New York for 2 years, before enjoying its Sephora launch in 2006 – which happened to be the most successful launch at Sephora that year…

I love the look of the packaging in this range – the compacts feature swivelling mirrored lids (check out the videos on the brand on the Zuneta site/YouTube channel…). The range also has a slight gothic twist to its packaging, which doesn’t step too far into the realms of darkness… No surprise that Angelina Jolie is a fan of the line then? Well if its good enough for her…!

I really love the sound of the Solar Tan Primer, which combines their mineral primer with the power of a gradual facial tanner – the fact that this is already sold out on the site, despite its £44 price tag seems auspicious. Its said to give natural results similar to the colour you would naturally tan… a paley such as myself would probably only need this a couple of times a week (*convincing self that this is therefore an essential purchase*) Excuse photo’s – directly lifted from Zuneta website!
The “Extreme Sheen” Lipglosses from the range also sound fab – said to be water resistant, drink and foodproof. I love the look of shades Truth, Verse and Ignite
Of course I am an absolute SUCKER for foundation, so I must mention the Veil Fluid Makeup – said to feel silky smooth on the skin. This also contains a substance called Matrixyl – a collagen stimulator, which therefore has anti-ageing properties. It is free of mineral oil and fragrance, and contains SPF 15, and is also meant to be water/humidity/sweat resistant – the video on the Zuneta site also boasts that the product does not need to be set with powder. This appeals to me, as I love the way liquid foundation looks when freshly applied, and not having to set with powder sounds lovely!I also love the look of their Adorn Lipstick in the shade Lucid – described as “a soft rose with a stunning metallic shimmer”, and Icon “the ultimate blood red” (Surely dissertations could be written on the perfect Red lipstick!?).

The shadow duo’s also look lovely – “Prism” and “Dune” both appeal to me, although these are said not to be as buttery as the RBR shadows (which would be difficult to be fair!)

Have you tried any of the range? I’d love to know if any American readers have used the products and what you think too?

    HiThe lipsticks are gorgeous – I have one from a US swap in Icon and it's fab. I did a RBR order last week and my sample was a small sized Hourglass mascara – this rocks. It lengthens, doesn't flake and doesn't wilt a curl. I've heard really good things about Prism duo – I think I'm going to get that and perhaps the foundation.

    So far I want two of the shadows, a lipstick, the loose setting powder and the concealer stick ! I am tempted to order soon but wonder if they might do a discount code like they did with RBR, or am I being too hopeful :)
