INTRODUCING HOURGLASS AURA CHEEK AND LIP STAINS FOR A BLISSFUL GLOW


Just in time for spring come Hourglass Cosmetics’ Aura, water-based, liquid gel stains for cheeks and lips. The pair can be worn together or solo. Either way they imbue the complexion with an ethereal, transparent flush and can be used to simulate the 70s-inspired, Californian look seen on spring runways. If spring makeup is about looking effortlessly chic, then the Aura range is right on the mark. The products enhance, illuminate and highlight without color overkill.

“The Aura collection is the ideal prescription for those in search of a lighter, more natural look,” says Carisa Janes, Founder and CEO of Hourglass Cosmetics. “They offer a totally unique finish between a tint and a stain.”

This new Aura cheek stain  is simply amazing! Its not too dark so those normally afraid of stains this is for you, it leaves the perfect tint to your cheeks that lasts. I tried the Petal color and its the perfect peachy blush and it went on great over my foundation. I love that the product is water based it feel great going on and I love how long it lasts.

The lip stain has been perfected! I love  my Hourglass Aura Lip stain, the water based formula doesn’t dry my lips like some of the other stains I ‘ve tried. The great scent is a plus and I love the perfect tint it leaves my lips.

I have the Petal in the lip stain at first I worried it might be too orange but it comes out a soft peachy pink that leaves my lips looking natural but with a perfect pink color.

Daily Beauty Tip: White Eyeliner!

Launching her book Elixir in Paris, Hilary Duff kept her look fresh, shimmery and accessible. One of the best ways to acheive a similar feel? A few swipes of iridescent white liner underneath the bottom lashes. It adds definition in the subtlest way, both opening the eyes and drawing attention to them without being vampy or overbearing. Just be sure to choose a sheer formula with a hint of sparkle—matte versions can look chalky.
