Product Actions
An artist-inspired eyeshadow palette with seamless colour transitions offers advanced blending in a single pan.

Each palette contains five richly pigmented shades in a range of finishes from matte to shimmer for an endless array of creative eye looks. The innovative multi-press, three-dimensional design, combined with a fine, creamy consistency, introduces a new level of control for blending and picking up pigment.

Innovative pressing technique provides a continuous form in a single pan, offering advanced blending and artistry.

Artist-inspired palettes feature a range of finishes, from matte to shimmer, for countless combinations.

Shimmer shades may be applied dry or wet.

Unique sculptural design provides superior control for picking up and blending pigment.

How to Apply

• Brighten up the inner corner of the eyes by applying a shimmery shade with a damp Hourglass No.11 Smudge Brush – these shadows are designed to intensify when used wet.

• Use one of the lighter shadows for an all-over wash of color and then use the Hourglass No.4 Crease Brush to blend one of the deeper shades into the crease of the eyelid to create depth and contour.

• Taking the Hourglass No.9 Domed Shadow Brush, blend two shades together to create custom shadow options. The shades in each palette are formulated to blend together seamlessly.

• Apply a deep, matte shade all over the eyelid.  Using a clean finger, dab into a metallic shade and gently pat onto the middle of the eyelid to create more dimension.

• Use the Hourglass No.10 Angled Liner Brush with a deeper shadow and press into the lash line to subtly define the eyes. Use the same technique with a damp brush for a darker, more dramatic look.

• Shadows are highly pigmented and only a small amount is needed for optimal color payoff.

• Designed to work seamlessly with the Hourglass Brush collection.

Modernist Eyeshadow Palette is rated 3.4 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I bought this in Monochrome for my holiday as wanted one palette instead of taking numerous eyeshadows. I love it - the colours are subtle but really pigmented and can build up / mix the colours to also create a more dramatic intense look. I'd like to invest in more of these!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from utterly gorgeous I have this palette in EXPOSURE and I honestly cannot rate it highly enough. It is beautifully packaged, the shades are gorgeous, highly pigmented and apply and blend exquisitely. Yes, the powder is vey soft as some other reviews have noted but this is not a problem if you use the product softy and sparingly to build up the exact shade desired. This is exactly the quality I have come to expect from hourglass and will buying another palette to complement my collection of these amazing products.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! I love my modernist palette in obscura. It gives a sexy sooty eye look without the harshness of black. I like to use it with a synthetic fiber makeup brush as it deposits color best that way.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A worthwhile impulse buy.... I hadn't read any reviews on this product, my "Colorfield" palette was an impulse buy because it looked so beautifully presented. I had been looking for a khaki eye shadow which wasn't too glittery and could be built up for evening wear. This presentation has beige tones which go well with the two khaki shades and is easily blended for the day, or made more dramatic for evening wear. The texture is good and is easily blended. I have oily eyelids, so eye shadow usually creases, and after a day long of wear this hasn't occurred. My only concern with this product is that it looks too good to use, and that with continued use, the colours might cross-transfer because they flow into each other. I definitely recommend this product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A real game changer of a palette. Aware of some negative reviews of this product, I tried out different Modernist palettes with the help of an assistant in-store, eventually opting for the Monochrome colourway. I can honestly say, with no exaggeration, that it is the best eyeshadow I have ever used. My lids are hopelessly oily; usually both shadow and pencil liner all but disappear after an hour. The Modernist is the only eyeshadow that stays in place. What's more, the dark aubergine colour is perfect (dry or moistened) for lining the upper lid, so it really is everything I need in one palette. As for excessive fall-out: I haven't had this problem, although it may be because Monochrome contains mainly matte shades. I use a synthetic brush to just press onto the colour (rather than drag across the palette), tap once, then apply in a single sweep. The colours are easily buildable, but because of the strong pigmentation one application does the job. It is expensive, but now I no longer need liner or eye primer and can create a variety of looks that stay fresh all day. A lovely product.
