Do you remember the pen-style Hourglass Aura Collection cheek and lip stain we looked at back in January? It was called Flush? I kid you not, I’ve been stalking the Sephora by my house to spot the other colors in the line every week since.
That’s why I had to stifle a scream (“Eureka!”) in Sephora the other day when I stumbled upon the Hourglass display at the top. I’d just sniffed the new Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Fresh, which is fab, by the way, so I was already thrilled.
About the Hourglass Aura Collection Cheek and Lip Stains…
It’s like the brand has their fingers on the pulse of lazy girls like moi. The Aura Sheer Cheek Stains ($45 each) and Sheer Lip Stains ($26 each) are designed for ease of use. No brushes are required with Aura’s portable, pen-style applicators. Twisting the bottom of each one dispenses product through the sponge tip applicator at the other end, and it makes these sheer, buildable liquid stains practically foolproof to use.
Knowing it was my beauty duty to share this discovery, I quickly liberated swatches of the full collection (just three colors each of the stains for cheeks/lips). Let me know what you think.
