Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation Review

With flawless skin shaping up to be the core beauty trend for spring summer 2012 finding the right foundation with the right finish is essential. While some might prefer a dewy finish, an oil-free matte look is growing increasingly popular.

If you suffer with oily skin though, a matte finish can be an on-going struggle that is only eased with a trusty powder compact. Luckily Hourglass has come up with an easier alternative. Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation promises to absorb oil and provide long-lasting results without the need for touch ups.

Like many new foundations, Hourglass’ latest invention does offer more than just coverage. Using two new ingredients, phytostem edelweiss and lavandox, Hourglass’ foundation also works as an anti-ageing product. The first, phyostem edelweiss is derived from a rare Himalayan plant and helps slow collagen deterioration, while lavandox, which extracted from Spanish lavender, reduce the appearance of wrinkles.

The liquid to powder formula is lightweight, easy to blend with your skin tone and dries quickly like a second skin. It is ideal for those who suffer with an oily T-zone and the effects do last throughout the day, however you might need to freshen up your make-up for the evening and those with dry to combination skin might find the finish a bit cakey and powdery, especially if you use too much.

Whatever skin type you have it is best to proceed with caution and start with a small amount as you’ll be surprised how far the formula goes.

Hourglass’ Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation is available in eight shades and is priced at £40. The foundation can be purchased at from mid-February 2012.  

Rating: 10/10 for oily skin types – This is a groundbreaking beauty buy if you suffer with an oily T-zone and well worth investing in.
2/10 for dry/combination skin types – You would have to seriously hydrate and prep your skin if you wanted to use this foundation, especially if you have dry skin. There are more suitable and significantly cheaper foundations on the market that suit these skin types.
