Why We Like Hourglass
"We turn to Hourglass Cosmetics when we’re after something a little more luxe. Their lavish products are adorned with a slightly higher price tag but justifiably so. Each product delivers longevity and a high pigment payoff that wears beautifully for stand-out results. If you’re after something that shimmers and shines, we suggest browsing their Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadow range for a seriously sparkly finish that brings your look to life. "
