Last Thursday 9/18/14, we were invited to attend the launch of the Hourglass flagship store, perfectly positioned on iconic Abbot Kinney Blvd in Venice Beach, CA. I have long praised the exquisite Hourglass line…from the Ambient Lighting Powder Palette and Immaculate Liquid Powder Founadtion to the 1.5MM Mechanical Gel Eyeliner and Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss (for the quintessential nude lip), Hourglass is the marriage of form and function with some of the most advanced ingredients on the market! The flagship store is all one would expect from Hourglass…clean, classic and aesthetically stunning, the fluid lines and timeless design perfectly resonate with the beauty of the Hourglass products themselves.
