Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation

Hello everyone,

I haven't done a foundation review for a little while.  So here it is.

This foundation by Hourglass is absolutely amazing!  It makes your skin look flawless, even, matt but not dry and almost airbrushed perfect!






This is without a doubt a high end, premium foundation.  But quite frankly I think it's absolutely worth it!  At the moment, for my Australian followers, you can only buy Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation at Mecca Cosmetica and retails for $78.00.  Which in the scheme of things is more expensive that your budget brand such as L'Oreal and Maybelline.  However, in the same price range as Chanel and Estee Lauder.  So not completely over the top.  Plus with this product a little goes very far.  There's no need for powder as it finishes to a powder.

According to Hourglass:

An ultra-mattifying, anti-aging foundation that absorbs oil, camouflages imperfections and ensures a long-lasting flawless finish - without the need for touchups. Studies have shown an improvement in skin's overall appearance, with blemishes, acne scars and pores becoming visibly reduced in 4 weeks of use.*
Water-resistant and ideal for oily, combination or blemish-prone complexions.
Free of oil, paraben, gluten, fragrance, phthalate, synthetic dye and nanoparticles.  

I was curious to use it because even at my age my skin still has an oily T zone.  Most frustrating!!  But this product allows my skin to breath without getting all messy.  In fact my T zone isn't oily at all with this product. It really does absorb any excess oil which makes it perfect for those of us who have oily or combination skin.  And doesn't dry out any areas of the face which may be dry.  Used in conjunction with Hourglass' Mineral Veil Primer (which is a-maz-ing!!) you will look picture perfect without the appearance of wearing too much make up.  



 And honestly ladies I think that's our goal right?  To look like the most perfect version of ourselves but still be ourselves.

So bottom line?  I absolutely love it!  Perfect for summer when it's humid and hot.  At this stage Hourglass does not ship to Australia.  Fingers crossed that changes soon.  As mentioned in another blog, Sephora is coming to Australia but there's been no talk of when!  When that happens you'll be able to purchase Hourglass products there. 



Please let me know what you think of this product.  I'd love to hear from you.


Until next time

Margaret
