In my first post on Hourglass, I shared my love for the brand and their new Modernist Eyeshadow Palettes. Luckily for me, I was invited back to experience their event at Harrods, celebrating the launch of their new eyeshadows! I can’t even describe my excitement. During my time there, I was very fortunate to have my make up done by the brand’s Global Training Director, Laura Janes. We decided to go for a different smoky eye look this time, using the Modernist Palette in Graphite.
I usually go for warmer tones on my eyes, so I was really looking forward to being made up with this palette which features a really striking dark blue.
Hourglass have always set out to combine beauty, science and luxury with their brand. So, it was amazing to discover that it takes two minutes to press every individual shade of their eyeshadows into each palette. Usually, other brands only press each colour in for two seconds! That time really makes a difference, and you can certainly feel and see the the added quality in their products, especially compared to other cosmetic brands.
Of course, when my make up was complete I had fallen in love with their Graphite eyeshadow, so decided to treat myself to it (I knew I had to have at least one of their palettes!), and of course one of their beautiful Ambient Palettes. I can safely say I walked away very happy from this experience, and also received some free gifts! I felt so lucky!
