Hourglass is one of those brands that I often see come up on Twitter and other social platforms as an overhype. Certainly, the Ambient Lighting palettes caused much division in opinion although personally, I liked them. So, now we have the Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette – the sample above is Atmosphere – and it consists of matte shades, beautifully presented with a sand dune type effect.

The texture is a creamy powder – actually rather lovely to work with but it does kick up some dust. I’ve used a sponge applicator here to get the ‘stripes’ right, but if you’re using a brush you won’t get quite this intensity and will need to work on building the lighter shades. Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette is a whopping £56 – there’s no way in the world we can talk about this as ‘good value’ but it’s meant for the luxury market and is priced as such. Personally, at that price, it’s a pass from me – there are so many amazing nude spectrum palettes around that I can’t make any sense of the spend for the shades. But, Hourglass fans I think will be all over these and loving them! There are six variants (some with shimmer) of the Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palette HERE.
