It is the 1930’s and the scene is a sultry, silky, dimly-lit smooth jazz club. Fashionable ladies and gents are seated in plush red velvet cushioned seats, cuddling close and whispering sweet nothings into their paramour’s ear. Others are leaning against the mahogany bar, chatting animatedly with polite company. The one thing that they all have in common- their eyes become riveted to center stage, where a crimson-lipped, doe-eyed vixen is crooning her lovely little heart out. With just a flutter of her kitten lashes, and the pursing of her red, glistening pout, she lures the crowd in, keeping everyone’s gaze on her.
With Hourglass, I am instantly brought back to that famed era when red lips and lush lashes were the beauty m.o of fashionable women everywhere. With Hourglass’ newest mascara- Film Noir, and old favorite Extreme Sheen Lipgloss in Siren, we can all relive the spirit of an era when a woman’s eyes, and lips, truly did do all of the talking.
A formula designed to darken, lengthen, and thicken fringes everywhere, film noir does all of that while staying put and flawless as long as it wears. There is no clumping or flaking to be had, and the slightly wet formula ensures that this mascara can be layered flawlessly. The brush is rather nifty and is shaped just so, in order to define and thicken with ease.
Krasey Rating: B+
