Second up for my “Brands that don’t suck” feature is Hourglass.
Known for their high-end and almost excessively luxurious products, Hourglass is not a brand for those of you on a strict budget. Their products are always high quality, but that quality comes with a price tag to match. In saying that, however, I find the products I use from them (apart from primers which I go through like nobody’s business) last quite a while. It’s also worth noting that Hourglass is a cruelty free brand, not owned by any parent company which is not, so they’re a good pick for those of you looking for brands that meet that criteria.
Hourglass is probably best suited to those of us who like more natural looks. Their products are all about bringing out natural beauty (barring their foundations which err on the full coverage side of the spectrum).
Many of Hourglass’s products are considered Cult favourites so let’s see if they’re really worth the hype.
