a very wearable colour during daytime. for me it neutralises the yellowness in my eyelids, and this cream-beige colours contains very subtle shimmer that brightens my eyes. likewise, it can be used as a 'highlighter' at the tearducts/ lower lash line (a bit of 'wet' look). tested this product under hot & humid weather (30 deg C, >70% humidity) with UD primer beneath, the shadow stood well for 8 hours, after that it creased; but to be frank I can't complain because my eyelids usually get very oily after wearing makeup for long hours.

I have already raved about my love for the Infallible shadow formula, finish and packaging in my reviews for other shades, so for this review I'll simply say the Infallibles are just wonderful!
I believe, although I am not certain, that Hourglass Beige is called Iced Latte in North America. It is a light shimmery beige/cream shade, and at first swatch I was afraid it would be too light and cool toned on my skin as most shadows in this colour range tend to be. When I tried it on my eyes, thankfully, I was wrong. It makes a lovely and luminous inner corner highlight, without looking chalky or white on me. While it is still a bit too light for under brows, it works so well in the inner corner that I am perfectly happy restricting it to this purpose. Again, the finish is simply beautiful and the staying power is wonderful!
