9 Hourglass Makeup Buys To Have On Your Radar

Best Hourglass Products | Space NK
Hourglass Cosmetics is a brand known for its dedication to producing high-performance, vegan and cruelty-free products. Founded by Carisa Janes back in 2004, the brand has continued to upgrade its formulas with the latest ground-breaking ingredients. Last year, Hourglass was the first to market with a vegan carmine which replaced crushed bugs in its Red 0 Lipstick. The brand has also been slowly moving from plastic to more sustainable aluminum packaging with its palettes.

Why We Love Hourglass Cosmetics


There’s makeup and then there is Hourglass makeup, in our humble opinion. The brand offers more than just luxury beauty to fill our makeup bags with and always goes the extra mile. We love that Hourglass invests its efforts into ensuring both the formulas and packaging are kind to the environment. Every Hourglass makeup buy is cruelty-free and vegan, and the brand has taken the same stance with its skincare offering which launched at the beginning of 2021.

Best Hourglass Makeup Products To Buy In 2023

Hourglass

Ambient Lighting Powder, £ 48,00

The Ambient Lighting Powders put Hourglass Cosmetics on the map. Don’t let the featherlight texture fool you, these powders have the power to transform your complexion and leave it with a gorgeous, natural-looking glow. Carisa created them in a pre-Instagram, pre-filter age and each powder cheats the effect of good lighting. Dust across your face where light naturally hits and enjoy the filter-free life.

Unlocked Instant Extensions Mascara, £ 31,00

Hourglass Caution Extreme Lash is one of the top selling mascaras at Space NK and if you’re serious about your mascara you’ve probably already tried it. The clever two-in-one brush has a tapered end and ensures every part of each lash is evenly coated. Expect the kind of finish that gets people asking which mascara you use.

Vanish™ Airbrush Primer, £ 24,00

Tapping into the beauty trend for skincare-makeup hybrids, this lightweight gel blurs the appearance pores and controls shine without leaving your skin with a film-like feeling. While it sits under your foundation or tinted moisturiser perfectly, we’ve also been wearing it with just concealer when we want to channel the 'no makeup' makeup look.

Vanish Seamless Finish Liquid Foundation, N/A

Full coverage foundation has a reputation for being heavy and cakey, but anyone who thinks this hasn't tried Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Liquid Foundation. It's lightweight, long-lasting and blends easily. Plus, we love that you don't need a primer or setting powder to ensure it stays in place - even during peak summer.
