Hourglass Burnish, Rapture, Ray, Vivid Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadows Reviews & Swatches

Burnish

Hourglass Burnish Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a light-medium, coppery brown with warm undertones and a sparkling, metallic finish. It was less metallic compared to most shades in the range, though it was still quite shimmery/sparkly. The texture was lightly creamy, denser in the pot but not too thick or heavy, so it applied evenly and didn’t emphasize my lid texture. It had opaque pigmentation that was easy to apply and diffuse for a softer level of coverage. This shade stayed on well for nine hours on me with very minimal fallout before fading noticeably.

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).

Rapture

Hourglass Rapture Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a medium-dark red with strong, warm undertones and a mix of gold and pink sparkle. It had rich color coverage in one layer, which applied evenly and smoothly to my lid without sheering out too readily nor having issues with fallout. The texture was smooth to the touch, lightly creamy but thin enough to pick up well with fluffier brushes. It wore nicely for nine hours on me before fading a bit, though it had almost no fallout that I could detect over time.

Ray

Hourglass Ray Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadow ($29.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a bright, lighter bronzy brown with warm, slightly rosy undertones and cooler gold and teal sparkle. It had opaque pigmentation paired with a smooth, lightly creamy texture that was a bit thicker and denser compared to the other shades in the range, but it didn’t prove problematic for application as it went on evenly and didn’t emphasize my lid’s natural texture. It seemed to have a greater amount of sparkle in it, so I noticed that when I blended it out, there was more noticeable migration of sparkles along the edges in particular. This shade lasted well for nine hours on me before creasing faintly, and it had a touch of fallout over time.

It stayed on well for nine hours on me before fading a bit and had very minimal fallout over time.

No wonder I love Ray so much; it has a 90% dupe in MAC To Boldly Go pressed pigment!
But, I still feel like it packs more punch than TBG in the glitter/shimmer department.

I love Vivid but have about 4 listed dupes and the same is true of Ray; Lise Watier, a fabulous Canadian brand, has similar shadows that are readily available where I live and at a lower price point. These are lovely, though!

These are all beautiful, but a touch expensive for singles. I love the shade range and think they are also easily duped. Thank you for reviewing these Christine.

I am so underwhelmed by the amount of glitteriness x conservativeness of the shades they chose x the price and volume of product. Maybe I need to see them in person, but from here these look like “Office Glitter”, which may mean they’re totally brilliant! They inspire me to layer my Stila liquid glitter shadows over my Urban Decay Moondust shadows (which I can’t believe I haven’t done yet!) and then finish the look with a full face of MAC Bling Things. So now I know what I’m wearing today!!

I love Vivid but I have a lot of the dupes so not going to pick it up. It does remind me of a Shiseido shadow I had back in the 70’s and that I have mentioned here on the blog, before. It was called Silkspun Green/Gold and was a magical shadow. Something about it was just perfect. I think I wore it everyday for about 8 months!!

I bought the shades Rapture and Vivid and they are very pretty. The glitter fallout is minimal. I wore vivid for the whole day with primer and some darker green shadow on the edges and crease and it lasted me very well without creasing.
