Here’s a short ‘n’ sweet recap of my reviews of the holiday Hourglass Sculpture Collection , which included an Ambient Lighting Palette, Quad, and Trio (Nordstrom exclusive) along with a lipstick duo. All of the products were consistent with past releases/permanent iterations, so if the smaller pan-sizes of the various palettes doesn’t bother you, they are certainly easy to use and live up to majority of the brand’s claims.

It bears repeating: it remains disappointing that Hourglass fails to put out more inclusive product ranges. They really had the perfect opportunity to do so with the quad format, too.

We appreciate enthusiasm for new releases but ask readers to please hold questions regarding if/when a review will be posted as we can't commit to or guarantee product reviews. We don't want to set expectations and then disappoint readers as even products that are swatched don't always end up being reviewed due to time constraints and changes in priorities! Thank you for understanding!

The Sculpture quad is very high on my WL, because two years in a row, I had to pass on the Unlocked Palette due to either unavailability by the time I had the dough or last year’s big move that I had to save for.

Have to say, whether one likes Hourglass or not, they always deliver in quality when it comes to their powdered blushes/highlighters/finishing powders.
