Sephora Online Haul - Hourglass

by 20.8.14

Ever since Sephora (damn you Sephora!) offered shipping to Germany for only €10, I have been drooling over Hourglass. Their ambient lighting powders and ambient lighting blushes are a true hype in the beauty sphere and I can confirm that with this blog post.

There were three items that landed in my basket: Dim Light (neutral peach beige) and Dim Infusion (a subdued coral) and a mini version of the mineral veil primer.

Dim Light ($45) is a powder that is supposed to blur any imperfections, has a perfect balance of warm and cool tones. It contains 0.35 oz. The packaging is super sleek, chique and totally my thing! It comes with a mirror too.

Dim Infusion ($35) is the blush version of Dim Light. It contains 0.15 oz. It is such a beautiful peachy coral and blends like a dream. I love my peaches and corals! When applied on the face, it looks really natural and the sheen doesn't emphasize imperfections.

Mineral Veil Primer Mini ($18) I got the mini version to try it out before spending a lot of money on a primer that doesn't suit my needs. This primer has a SPF of 15, is water resistant, it absorbs oil and makes fine lines and pores appear less visible. It doesn't contain my shiny nose. Nothing seems to keep that under control.

If you are curious how it swatches on my face, have a look at the pictures of my L'Oreal Glam Matte post, you can see me wear the blush and the powder.

Do any of you own any Hourglass products? I know they are pricy, but these products and packaging are perfect for me.

    Beautiful colors, but they look too pale. I prefer the darker and dikes ranges tones.

    I've never heard about Hourglass before. It's nice to find out another make up brand. It seems to be a good brand. Well, I have the same problem when it comes to my T zone. It gets worst on hot days. But have you ever tried to use some finishing powder? Maybe it helps you with your T zone.'
    My never-ending search will always be the perfect primer. It's really challenging ;)

    All the best for you and your family

  3. I need to check right away if sephora ships to Sweden.
    But you can order hourglass from uk.spacenk and their shipping is only £5 to Europe. You can also use the code WAYNELOVES and get £10 off when you spend £40, while it lasts.

    Hope it helps your shopping. :)

  4. Perfect colour for you. It's soo good that they ship to Germany now.. so sad, that they don't ship my favorite perfumes :(

  5. Ah yes, Hourglass! I love their products! I have Dim Light too and their blush in Diffused Heat. They're both little miracle workers. I hope to get more of their products soon, your swatch of Dim Infusion got me interested!
