Hope you're well :o)
I recently filmed and wrote a review on the Hourglass Aura Sheer Cheek Stain for Makeupgeekxtra and I thought I would share it on my Blog as well.
Here is the video review:
And here is some more info and my thoughts on it:
Retails for $45 on the Hourglass Website.
It comes in three shades – Petal, Flush and Rouge. The particular one I tried was Flush.
It is oil free and fragrance free which is good to prevent breakouts and it’s actually water based and light weight so it lets your skin breath. It has Vitamin E to nourish your skin as well. It says that it is to provide a natural, subtle glow to your cheeks with light reflecting elements and the colour is to last all day.
How you apply it is by twisting the bottom which is a click mechanism – you can work out how many clicks you prefer for each application so you make sure that you have the same amount of product for each cheek. You dot it onto the apples of your cheeks and blend from there and you can then layer for more colour if you like.
You only need a tiny amount, it’s very pigmented. The product is very bright when you dispense it but once you apply and blend it, then it just gives a natural glow. The only thing is that you can’t use too much powder before using this cheek stain as it doesn’t sit properly on your skin – can look blotchy.
An added bonus is that you can use it as a lip stain as well – it doesn’t last as long as on the cheeks though.
Overall I really enjoy using this product - it is a bit pricey but you only need a tiny amount for it to work.
If you’re looking for an all day glow on your cheeks then you should check out the Hourglass Aura Cheek Stain.
I hope this review was helpful for you!
