I've been contemplating on how to write a review for the Hourglass foundation I had recently bought. I'm a big fan of vegan beauty products, and when I heard that the Hourglass foundation was also vegan product as well, I decided to give it a shot. I wasn't really sure how I felt about the texture of the foundation on my skin when I first applied it, comparing to my last foundation that I had always been using--The Urban Decay Naked Skin Weightless Foundation.
The PROS and the CONS
Pros: long lasting, smooth finish, oil-free, light, great coverage, comfortable.
Cons: sticky feeling
My conclusion to this foundation is that when I'm wearing this, I don't really feel cakey... but when I look at myself in the mirror, I tend to see shines on my face even after applying powder or translucent powder. I love that it feels like I'm not wearing any makeup, but when I touch my face, it feels very sticky like I had sweated all day. Would I purchase this foundation again? Not quite sure, but I really hope they would figure out a way to fix the sticky shine problem soon.
So, after wearing it for quite a while, I decided to just toss the Hourglass Foundation to the side because it just does not feel good on my face. It felt so sticky and I always felt like I had an oily face whenever I looked in the mirror. I rate this product, probably 3/5.
