Summertime ColorTime with Hourglass Cosmetics

Hot breezy days, and the feeling is right,
it’s time to embrace the sun
With lipgloss and bronzer and liner in sight
Summertime has begun.

Bright, sunny days and warm, balmy nights, summer is fast approaching us on this great big North American continent of ours. With the impending heat, it is time to switch gears and have a look at the products that will get us through splashing, sunning, and even that steamy night out at the club. Let us welcome the sunny season with smiles, laughter, and some sunny-weather favorites from Hourglass Cosmetics

Extreme Sheen Gloss in Fortune

Lip love, thy name is Extreme Sheen lipgloss.Ultra emollient, high shine, and multidimensional, this vanilla scented lipgloss hits all the right notes. Housed in a sleek tube with accompanying brush applicator, the color applies both even and opaque, providing for hours of luscious lip wear. The gloss itself is neither tacky nor watery, and cushions lips with a pillowy luster. Fortune is a peachy pink with gold sparkle.


On lips. The multi-dimensional effect is quite obvious. Almost looks opalescent, doesn’t it?

Illume Creme to Powder Bronzer Duo in Sunset

Bronzer in the summertime is tricky business indeed. You don’t want to look too matte, too sparkly, or too orange. That in mind, Hourglass provides you with a creme to powder option that is the perfect shade of sun kissed bronze and natural peach. The creme bronzer and blush duo go on silky smooth and full in color, drying down to a dewy powder finish that can be as subtle or dramatic as you want it. The bronzer is perfect as a contour, while I like to wear the blush on the apples of my cheeks.


And in action, with the bronzer to contour and the blush to highlight. Notice how fresh and natural the skin looks? I would definitely describe the finish as dewy, which is a great finish to wear in the summertime sun.

Calligraphy Liner Pen

The last superstar, and an absolute summer essential is Calligraphy Liquid Liner Pen in ebony. Housed in a sleek applicator, this liner is splash-proof, smudge-proof, beach-tested and pool-approved. The somewhat rigid felt tip allows you to make the liner as thin or as thick as you want it.


And in action.

Summer may be right around the corner, but that doesn’t mean we need to be caught bare-faced. With these essentials from Hourglass, I know I am good to go.
