This is probably the worst foundation I have ever used.

I tried it out in store with my friend at Harvey Nichols, and we were so impressed with how smooth this looks. OK fine - I only tried it out on the back of my hand (I wasn't going to ruin my makeup that day). My friend was the one who had it applied to her face as she wasn't wearing any makeup that day.

Anyway …

Hourglass has just launched in Poland and I was invited to one of their events in my local Sephora. A lovely rep demonstrated this foundation for me and although I was looking for the Immaculate one, I was talked into buing the Vanish. I bought into the hype and now I regret it. Here’s why:

Not for dry skin, because it makes it look like paper, accentuates dry patches, deepens my lines …

In the store I thought I had found a wonderful foundation. Sadly when using it a home the product turned out badly for me. It separated on the skin after a short time and gave a horrible finish. It is also very expensive so it was such a bad purchase

I'd like to start by saying my high scoring is not for Hourglass the company, I am in the UK and struggle to find stores that sell this near me, Hourglass told me to visit a John Lewis store but it turns out they only it sell online so I had a wasted trip. I ended up going to Leeds Harvey Nichols and the consultant there matched me up to Ivory, I felt it was dark so asked for a sample and …Read more

I have been considering this for several weeks. I usually love Hourglass, however, on my mature dry skin this was a disaster and I am returning it unopened. The Sephora person applied this to my lower face with a brush. For one, the color match was off, and with all the shades offered (32) that was amazing that there was not a better match. By the time I arrived home in about an hour, this …Read more

My friend received the entire color range in PR, so I got to try this foundation. So, it's $56 and for that price, you basically have to work your a$$ off to blend this stuff in order to look semi presentable to leave the house. I have clear skin with no dry patches. But I do have fairly large pores on my cheeks and nose and my god, was I made aware of them with this foundation! It truly …Read more

First of all, be warned if you have dry skin, this foundation really works best for those with oilier skin. Secondly, as many have said before, this is a very full coverage foundation. A pea size amount of this foundation is all you will need to cover your entire face. Starting out with a small amount, working in sections, and moisturizing your skin before applying will all help. I found that applying this with a brush ended up highlighting dry areas. I ended up figuring out that applying this with a lightly damp beauty blender or makeup sponge was the way to go. The best way to use the foundation was by dabbing it on with little "bounces" one area at a time was the only way I could apply this without accentuating dry areas. I do like that this is fragrance free, but I …Read more

The stick version is much much better in terms of application (glides and spreads better) and lasting power. I bough this seeing all the blogger and instagram reviews, BIG mistake, come to MUA first. I bought Natural which is a good match for NC25, this dries very quickly so you will need a quick hand. It's patchy to apply as well. it's quite light but it settles into every nook and …Read more

Ok so here’s an update.


This foundation is HARD to work with and tricky.

You HAVE to use not even HALF OF A DROP and work with one tiny finger tip drop at a time and blend with a brush. Not a flat top brush something like a zoeva silk blending..
The beauty blender doesn’t work for this one
If you dot it all over it’s gonna dry before you can blend …

I would like to begin by stating: this foundation is diabolical.

I used it today for the first time, in the shade 'Buff', and whilst swatching it on my face it was already clinging to dry patches on my face, a general sign that this foundation is going to be a mess. I then applied it as recommended (1/2 pump for the entire face). The scent was pleasant; it smelled like …
