Rant or Rave?

A new lick of paint

Hourglass Film Noir Lacquer Review

Hot on the heels of meye (geddit!) last mascara themed post is a review of Hourglass' Film Noir Lash Lacquer.

Hourglass is relatively new to the UK but is fast becoming my brand of choice, I am slowly but surely working my way through their whole line and no complaints thus far! 

The lacquer looks a lot like a lipgloss for the lashes (try saying that fast!). First off points for innovation, I have not come across anything else remotely like this on the market. 

It is meant to work as a top coat for your mascara, adding length, volume and shine.

The brush does take quite a bit of getting used to. I find the best way to apply it is to brush the lashes up and down whilst blinking my lashes, but each to their own. It is designed to be worn on top of mascara and the formula is specifically designed to be clump free.

I have road tested this a few times and not a clump in sight! It adds a whole another dimension to your standard mascara look. Glossy, inky, wetlook. To me it conjures up an image of black squid ink, someone watches wayyy too many cooking programmes! Or maybe wetlook leggings for your lashes?

Now whilst this is not something you need for a day to day basis, for those night outs it can take you look to the next level. It fans out each individual lash to sensational proportions, colours them a deep dark black, and pumps up the volume. A great little product to keep in your 'work' makeup bag for an instant day to night transformation.

Not for the light hearted this lacquer really packs a punch.

The left eye has just mascara, the right mascara and lacquer

I cannot lap up this latex enough

Relatively easy to use, smudge and clump free, false lash effect without the spider leg feeling, really what else could you ask for?

Lets do some makeup maths. Dior's serum + Hourglass' Lacquer = SHOWSTOPPING peepers

Hourglass Lash Lacquer is available for £25 from Space NK
