Project Focus 10 ❥ Hourglass & Lancôme

Project Focus Winter 2016

Week 8 & 9

Week 8 & 9 of our Project Focus 10Be sure to have a look at Joy, Jodi & Stashy’s posts, my friends in this interesting and challenging adventure.

Note: Sorry if I was a no show last week, the flu got the best out of me.

Project’s Recap so far…

The last two weeks, I’ve been sporting a bare face. Now I’m feeling better and I’m hungry for some new makeup! Already, the last few days, I was sporting my war makeup just to get the ball rolling…

♥Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush♥

Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush (Ethereal Glow)

Oh! boy what a waist of money! If I didn’t have this blush for 2 months prior to using it, I would have return it so fast  that I’m sure that I would have made the Canadian Olympic running team …


Blends like a charm,

So finely milled that you can’t really speak of “sparkle” about it, but it definitely has a luminescence that could be gorgeous,

Perfect for everyone, even mature skin and girls with texture on their faces,

So why on earth do I regret buying this product??? The Shade Ethereal Glow. It just doesn’t show on my fair skin. Since there is no way I can return it, I apply this all over my face to add a subtle glow. For god sake, I wanted a pink blush. So all in all, it’s really not the brand fault but mostly mine; I should have try it before buying… I’m still using the product and I’m able to get the most out of it; I would even buy another one in a heart beat but I would surely pick the darkest shade available.

If you are interested in trying this Hourglass blush, try it in store! 45$ down the drain for me personally is gut wrenching, worst when it doesn’t add any color whatsoever on your cheeks.

♥Lancôme Le Lipstique – Lip Colouring Stick with Brush♥

Lancôme Le Lipstique Liner (Natural Mauve)

I got it in the Natural Mauve color and it is Gorgeous. It’s a great base for all my nude or pink lipsticks, but honestly, I almost always wear it alone and I love it! Great color payoff, long wearing, lovely texture & mostly, glides effortless on the lips. I usually apply it all over my lips (blending it with my fingers) and I put my favourite gloss on top and man does it look good!!!

Hourglass Lancôme

It’s so sad because I never hear girls talk about this amazing Lancôme Lip liner …

Thanks for stopping by my beauties

  1. I love Lancome Le Lipstiques! (Esp. back in the day when lipliner was a bigger thing.) I could never get them to sharpen without getting smooshed, though, so I’ve never bought one 😦

    Shame about that blush! How odd.

    1. I know the blush situation is ridiculous! Oh! well, it’s my fault 😦
      The Lancôme Liners that I own don’t get smooshed when I sharpen them ! I think that lipliners are making a comeback 😉

      1. I use two bruses! until I got my NARS Yachiyo Brush I used a denser one from Hakuhodo, one from the J series! I’m sure you’l find it on my blog in one of my FOTDs! 😉 now, I’m obsessed with my Yachiyo! both work just fine! 😉 xx

  2. send them to me!! HAHA.. I love my Hourglass Ambient Blush palette.. they are my ultimate blush palette of all my blushes.. I have a fair skin so I guess any shade suits me?? I guess.. maybe?? but too bad that didn’t work for you.. 😦

    1. Do you own Ethereal Glow ??? I have fair skin too and it doesn’t show up on me 😦
      I should have bought the Ambient Blush palette too… Next Holiday, I will buy one for sure!
      I will not waist it but I surely won’t buy the same color again…

      1. I didn’t have the Ethereal Glow I have the (Luminous Flush, Incandescent Electra, Mood Exposure)


    1. Radiant Magenta is the shade I should have bought !!! It’s my fault because as you know the formula is EXTRAORDINARY.
      Thanks for stopping by Mandy xo’s


  3. I’m shocked this is your product regret!!! 😮
    What kind of brush are you using with this? A synthetic bristle one? I find that with most baked products, I need to use a natural haired brush to pick up pigment. Try that to see if you notice a difference. 😕

      1. I think you never heard anybody talk negatively about these blushes solely because no one must be buying Ethereal Glow !!! I made the mistake and yes try it in store 😀

    1. I chose the wrong shade that’s my fault 😦 The formulation is so good … I will probably buy Radiant Magenta or Incandescent Electra next (or wait for the next Christmas palette) !!! At least I look ALIVE with this blush all over my entire face 😀

    1. I know it’s ridiculously expensive !!! The deeper shades must look so good … The Lancôme Lip Liner is fabulous, the best thing is that it doesn’t budge all day long 🙂
      Thanks for your comment xo’s
