Hourglass Suede Visionaire Eyeshadow Duo – a soft and gentle review

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.

Suede on top, Dune on bottom

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.

Hourglass Suede

Swatched

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

  1. This is so gorgeous!! Want want want!

  2. this is so my go to duo when I’m feeling ridiculously lazy. I love everything about it. Needless to say, it’s got some serious dippage lol

  3. It works so well alone plus it’s great with other shadows. Love it too Brooke.

  4. Lola, the Hourglass are so interesting. Either they are totally intense like Dune and Prism or they are soft and sweet like Suede. I think Gypsy is in between but closer to Suede.

  5. I’ve been debating which Hourglass to buy and this looks like a perfect choice.

  6. I had Gypsy sitting in my vanity for ages and I finally got around wearing it a few weeks ago. You, my dear Marcia will love it! I need to do a review ASAP!

    P.S.-from your review, I can tell that Gypsy is much more pigmented than Suede

  7. Darn it. I knew I needed Gypsy and now you are forcing me to get it. I love Suede for it’s softness. It’s perfect for when I want to wear shadow but shouldn’t.

  8. I’ve never tried Hourglass but these look and sound like they would be heavenly.

  9. Wow, the beige side looks amazing!

  10. This duo looks beautiful.

  11. I’ve never tried any of their eyeshadows, but they look gorgeous!!

  12. I love these colors, they look great for Fall!
