So, it was a ridiculously extended sabbatical I took and this is my first review in about 3 months or so. I won’t lie, it is overwhelming to start over, it is almost as if I have forgotten how to type! (I hadn’t published this for a while) I wish I had chosen a product I was totally in love with, as opposed to this one, but I have been itching to share what I truly feel about this one. So without any further distractions, let’s get to the point and discuss Hourglass Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo in Dune ($44 cdn).
First things first, Hourglass is a brand I totally admire; I love how the brand is structured – minimal, classy and luxurious. It is very much a grown (and refined!) woman’s brand. Every piece looks defined and regal and yes, you want to take ‘em all home. The packaging just oozes finesse. And products are supposed to perform. What’s not to love? Unfortunately, when a brand is so hyped up and markets itself as a luxury brand, expectations are bound to soar. Especially if that person is me. Before I proceed, I don’t know what exactly caused my mild disappointment with this duo; whether it simply did not work for me or because my expectations were soaring high, but the fact remains that it did not.
Dune is made up of champagne and shimmering olive, the darker colour is especially more unique. The texture is smooth, but it did not feel like the most pigmented eyeshadow out there. The biggest issue that I have is that even with a primer, it lasts 4 hours tops. The packaging is stellar and absolutely classy, but Hourglass Dune left me desiring for more.
Hourglass Visionaire Eyeshadow Duo in Dune sure looks like a luxury product, but certainly does not perform like one, for me, at least. I want to give Hourglass one more shot, but my initial impression is not up to the hype.
