Makeup Review- Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation

You guys all know I’m a “rusher” right? I’m always late therefore always rushing to everything in life, including work. I found that dealing with liquid foundations in the car (which is usually where I get to do my makeup on most days) can be hellish so I have been looking for something that is less messy.

I got Black Up’s Two Way Cake (review here) which I really like but because it’s a powder, you only get light coverage. I decided to try a cream foundation for something that’s easy to work with that provides medium coverage at least.

Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation

Would you believe that I had never heard about this brand until it got recommended to me by an MUA in Sephora? I went in seeking opinions about the best stick/cream foundation and the mutual consensus was Hourglass. After I got matched to the shade “Golden Almond” I decided to give it a try….

I really wanted to like this foundation but it’s not for me at all. First of all, I have yellow undertones so I thought Golden Almond will be a great match but it isn’t. It ends up looking orangey on me..This is my grouse with most foundations because more often than not they are red based. I have found love with NARS (review here) though and I’m never going back. 

This foundation is also really difficult to blend. Like, it requires some serious arm-work to get it to move, no jokes,  After I struggled with it a few times, I decided to try spraying my face with Fix Plus before blending and that worked really well. Stress though…my morning don’t permit such a grand show when it comes to makeup. 

Blended…see how orange it is compared to my skin?

The Hourglass Seamless Finish Foundation retails for $46 which is not cheap so it doesn’t even win on price.

Issa NO from me on this one….

    I have heard so many different opinions on this foundation. I can't wait to try it out for myself.
