Aura

Hourglass Aura Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium copper with warm, rosy undertones and a sparkling sheen. It had sheer coverage applied in a single layer, and it was buildable to medium coverage in two to three layers. I tried to achieve opaque coverage with this shade and needed four layers and a dampened brush. My guess was that the drier, more flaky texture in the pot resulted in a consistency that was harder to pick up, apply, and blend out. It lasted for seven and a half hours on me with slight fallout over time.

Formula Overview

$29.00/0.12 oz. - $241.67 Per Ounce

The formula is supposed to have "buildable" coverage from "a sheer crystal-like shimmer to an opaque prismatic glitter finish." It is a "hybrid cream formula" that "dries down." Each pot has a plastic stopper that sits on top of the eyeshadow, which can be used to press the product together if it loosens over time.

The texture was very dense, felt more like a creamy powder than a cream--like if someone hadn't told me it was a hybrid, I would have just assumed it was a powder product. The brand recommends using fingertips for application, and that is the better way to apply for coverage and least fallout.

I tried dry and dampened brushes to varying degrees of success (some shades were easier to work with than others). The pigmentation varied, too, from buildable to semi-opaque. They were fairly blendable and had slight fallout during initial application. They lasted between seven and eight hours on me with slight, additional fallout over time (but did not irritate my eyes).

Blaze

Hourglass Blaze Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark copper with warm, rusty red undertones and a sparkling sheen. It had medium coverage applied in one layer, which was buildable to opaque coverage with a second layer. The texture was smoother, lightly creamy, and thin without being too thin or too slippery on my skin, so it applied evenly and blended out well without losing its intensity. There was a touch of fallout when I blended it out on my lid, and then there was a little more after eight hours of wear.

Foil

Hourglass Foil Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium copper with strong, warm golden undertones and a sparkling, metallic sheen. It had a stronger reflective quality to it than other shades, partially because it was one of the lighter/brighter hues, too. The texture was fairly smooth, lightly creamy, but it felt more like a powdery than a cream to me (almost like it was a little dried out already). It had medium coverage applied in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with two to three layers. I found this applied best with a dampened brush over fingertips or a dry brush. It wore well for eight hours with slight fallout over time.

Reflect

Hourglass Reflect Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a soft, rosy copper with warm undertones and a metallic sheen. It had semi-sheer pigmentation in a single layer, which was buildable to full coverage with two to three layers. The consistency was smooth, lightly creamy, and thin without being clingy or difficult to apply or blend out along the edges. The color stayed on well for eight and a half hours on me and didn’t seem to have any fallout.

Smoke

Hourglass Smoke Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium taupe with warmer undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. The eyeshadow had semi-sheer pigmentation in a single layer, which built up to full coverage with two to three layers. It had a smoother, lightly creamy texture that applied evenly to bare skin and blended out with little effort. On me, it lasted well for eight and a half hours before fading slightly. This shade had a minimal amount of fallout present at the end of wear.

Even though I see 3 shades that I really love, I cannot help but see these as nothing more than an overpriced ColourPop SSS eyeshadow ripoff? Perhaps I’m being a little too harsh in my judgment? But no, I don’t think so.

Smoke, Blaze and Reflect are the ones I love the the loos of, but I do have dupes for miles! (thank goodness)

Christine, would you mind elaborating on the differences between these and the Colourpop SSS? It’s been a while since I’ve placed a CP order, so it’s hard for me to do a proper comparison, and when I searched the HG aim Sephora I definitely thought, “aren’t these just like Colourpop, but pricier?”

I would consider these like a pressed loose powder, not a cream eyeshadow. Super Shock Shadows are wet to the touch – they are much, much more emollient. They’re not comparable in feel/texture/application, IMO.

They’re A LOT (I’m talking like near exactly the same!) like the “eco soul glam eyes” shadows from the Saem and are also made in Korea. Imo better to save the $$$ and get it from the Saem unless there’s a shade that’s really not dupeable.

H’mmm. I’ve never been a huge fan of Hourglass and this isn’t doing anything to change my mind. Pretty, safe, neutral colours in a new format – nothing deep, dramatic or bold.

Meh.

These look pretty, but the packaging and formula is almost identical to Korean brand The Saem’s Eco Soul Glam Eyes… except they’re a third of the price!

These are all gorgeous shades, but so many of them seem fairly similar to each other, with only a small difference. But I do love them. A really lovely eye look Christine.

I agree, I think it’s a shame they released shades that are so similar in tones to each other. I’d love to try the formula but every single shades seems rosy, and I don’t like rosy tones on my eyes at all. I don’t mind neutrals, but where are the taupes, the silvers, the cool browns?

I actually have these. I love them. They make my eyes look glowy and dewy even. I apply them with my fingers. As expensive as they are, they should apply well with different tools, but they’re so lovely on me that I’m ok with just using my fingers.

I have aura and it’s a gorgeous color on me. I put it on top of a matte taupe shadow and it really popped. I’m not sure why you gave it a c- Compared to the other colors ? I love it

Have you had a chance to try them yet? I can’t tell if they look ho-hum based on my swatches or from what you tried, lol!

I have tried, but I do not love. I think my disappointment stems from my eye shape and skin age. I imagine if I had big unhooded eyes, it would showcase to better effect. Still, this isn’t my first kick at the can and these shimmer/glitter hybrids are now going to be a firm no.

I’m intrigued by these but they look underwhelming from the swatches BUT it seems like really shiny things like gloss don’t photograph well.

I am disappointed they aren’t more cool toned I’ll be trying Smoke.

Thanks Christine!

I bought reflect a week ago and been wearing it ever since. Just this, applied with fingertips and my last extensions. I am in love. I really like cream/liquid shadows as they are super fast and I’m super lazy… I have at least 7 others formulas and this is my favorite by far. No fallout, color stays on for my 10 hours shift (I’m a nurse so I have 0 time for touch up!!) and it takes about 20 seconds to do both eyes. I plan on getting more but they are expensive!! But IMO they are worth it!

I have Aura and love, love, love it. I am actually surprised by how much I love it. As a mom of two, I wanted something that could be quickly swiped on as I usually only have a few minutes to get ready in the morning. Either by itself or layered over other eyeshadows, I find it stays on all day and night with minimal fallout and no creasing – and I have hooded eyes that are seriously crease prone. I will definitely be buying more colours.
