*UPDATE 1* All 26 shades of this Hourglass Vanish Seamless Foundation are currently available at hourglasscosmetics.com for $46.
In you can never have too many foundations news, there is a new foundation line on the horizon and it’s the Hourglass Vanish Seamless Foundation which is set to launch sometime in August 2016. This is great news for lovers of Hourglass products. It does have an interesting triangular design which I’m loving. Very sleek in its design.
It looks like a stick foundation which is actually my favorite way to apply foundation and I think it would also be also a great way to contour or highlight with if you can find a contour and/or highlight shade in this Hourglass stick foundation.
This Hourglass Vanish Seamless Foundation will feature a total of 26 shades
although it doesn’t look like there will be shades for very deep skin like mine from the image above which is a shame but nothing new with Hourglass and from the image below and the website, it looks like there are a variety of shades for very dark skin so I’m pleasantly surprised (and these shades can also be used for contouring for lighter skin tones.)
In line with Hourglass’ blueprint, this foundation is supposed to give you a “your skin but better” result with sheer or buildable coverage that is undetectable. It is also waterproof and supposed to provide about 12 hours of wear.
A foundation and concealer in one, Vanish Foundation’s concentrated formula is infused with double the amount of pigment versus traditional foundations for instant full coverage in one application. The long-wearing, waterproof formula provides 12 hour coverage, and the innovative formula adjusts to your body temperature to effortlessly blend into the skin. Encased in a unique triangular bullet for precise application along the contours of the face, it can be used to contour and highlight. It features an array of shades and it’s designed specifically to be used with the Vanish Foundation Brush for the most seamless finish.
The following are 20 out of 26 swatches of the foundation from Hourglass’ Instagram. Unfortunately no names for the different shades were given but I did get the darkest shade (espresso) and it is the perfect match for me (see my review here.)
