Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation

Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation ($46.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a new stick foundation that’s supposed to have full coverage, be long-wearing (12-hours) and waterproof, and feel “weightless” like a powder. There are 26 shades available, so it has a solid range of shades to choose from (I think some of the more comprehensive ranges are closer to 35-45 shades deep), and one thing I liked was that the brand gave descriptions for each shade, not just shades, which is a good starting point in picking from new shades. The brand also has a handy chart that compares matches from their other base products to the new foundation (see it here).

Introduction to Hourglass

Introduction to Hourglass

I’m new to this brand. Where should I start?

A Few Notes | When I reviewed the brand’s eyeshadow palettes, it seemed that the majority of readers had similar issues of sheerer, more powdery product, but there are still some who like them. That being said, if you like really sheer, silky eyeshadows, you may enjoy the Hourglass formula. Hourglass also makes some nice brushes and base products, like their Veil Mineral No. 28 Primers. Their Lip Oil is also a fantastic lip treatment if you have very dry lips.

What would you recommend to someone just trying Hourglass for the first time?
