Picture in your mind the softest suede fabric with its luxurious feel. That’s the touch equivalent of Hourglass Suede Visionaire Eyeshadow duo. This pair of eyeshadows is as soft and creamy in texture as it is in color.
I recently reviewed Hourglass Dune which I bought at the same time. I wore Dune first and was amazed at the intensity of it. The pigmentation is off the charts with Dune. Suede on the other hand has the softest yet sweetest pigment around. It contains a very light taupe as well as a light beige. While the colors are distinctly different when I first applied them I wondered if the taupe would even show up. The queen of taupe eyeshadows (aka PinkSith) would be appalled to see that I said that this has a touch of taupe but I do see a touch of it on my eyes even though it’s classified more as a beige. Her review for this duo gives you another reason to consider buying it.
When I swatch I rarely use a primer although I always use one on my eye. Suede barely shows up in my swatches but it’s a beautiful look on my eyes. It’s so subtle yet so elegant. It’s the perfect eyeshadow combination for those of us who aren’t spring chickens anymore. But it’s also perfect for those of you who aren’t into vivid shades or too much eyeshadow. Hourglass describes the shades as ivory shimmer and light beige shimmer so you can see what I mean when I call it subtle. The shimmer in this is so soft and fine that even those that are afraid when they see that word shouldn’t fear it. It just adds brightening.
I buy my Hourglass through Dermstore. I’ve got my eye on more Hourglass Visionaire Eyeshadow Duos, especially Gypsy. This is the kind of luxury that we all need every once in a while.– Marcia

I paid for this duo myself but if you choose to buy through Shop Our Favorites then Beauty Info Zone would make a small amount of money to help pay for further products to review. There’s no photo of Hourglass but any picture will take you to the site. Thanks for considering this.
