Christmas ain't over yet, with Hourglass gifting us new foundation shades and stunning highlighters!

UPDATE: Look, we don't want to say I told you so... but we kind of told you so.

Two days ago hourglass revealed a new drop of foundation shades and the cheeky reveal of only one new highlighter. However, we had a hunch there was more to come and boy, we're happy we were right.

The beloved cosmetic brand is releasing not one but FIVE new highlighting sticks in an array of shades that I need all over my body, like, right now. These aim to have the same effect as the foundation; being weightless, seamless and pigmented yet still looking like skin.

There are five beautiful shades, all with pretty self explanatory names, to get your hands on including Champagne Flash, Pink Flash, Gold Flash, Rose Gold Flash and Bronze.

These bad boys will be dropping next year on January 9th to American stores so hopefully, we can expect to see these quite soon in the new year. If you simply can't wait till then you can shop the already existing foundation range at the official stockists for Hourglass Cosmetics in Australia at our fave, MECCA.


I'm sure I'm not the only one who gets a little post-Christmas depression. I mean, one day it's the most exciting day of the year and after Boxing Day, it's just... nothing. But never fear, Hourglass Cosmetics has come through and is picking up our spirits. There's only less than a week left in the year but hey, if they want to drop some new and exciting products, who am I to say no? In a year where Fenty Beauty dropped a line with an enormous 42 shade foundation range, it's safe to say a bar was set. Not too long after, Huda Beauty followed with the 30 shade Faux Filter foundation showing that the cosmetics industry is changing to cater for skin tones of a number of shades, especially darker ones.

The Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Foundation Stick already stands on its own podium. With a 4/5 star review on MECCA, the foundation is described as "the ultra-perfected complexion you've always dreamed of" and let me tell you, it's just that. Having purchased this myself, the foundation blurs your skin with its high coverage but melts into your skin for an undetectable and seamless look.

The foundation range will now be increasing to 32 different shades to cater for those of more lighter and darker skin tones but the excitement doesn't stop there. Just to be a little bit extra, the beloved vegan and cruelty-free brand will be releasing stick highlighters so your complexion game is about to get a whole lot stronger.

The highlighter we have seen so far, "Rose Gold Flash" is a stunning pink and gold under-toned highlighter. However, there are rumours that we can expect to see five shades of the new product so we will have our eyes peeled!

The current range of Hourglass Cosmetics is available at MECCA. If you simply can't wait though, the MECCA Boxing Day sale is still going strong so you can shop 'til your little heart's content!
