Do you have oily and/or acne prone skin? Then I may have found your miracle foundation. Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation is a breakthrough liquid-to-powder foundation formula that absorbs oil, camouflages imperfections, and delivers a long-lasting, velvet-matte finish. Seriously.
This key component of this foundation is cashmere kaolinite clay, which has exceptional oil absorption properties – absorbing 75 percent of its weight in sebum while retaining the skin’s natural moisture. The oil-free, humidity-proof, and water-resistant formula (that is free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates, gluten, fragrance, synthetic dyes and nanoparticles) transforms instantly from a liquid mousse to powder. The all-day finish camouflages imperfections and never looks dull or flat. Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation’s superfine treated pigments provide full coverage without looking cakey or mask-like. It is also waterproof, making it the perfect melt-proof makeup option to resist moisture from humidity and sweat in the warm weather to come.
After an influx of emails from customers claiming Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation had cleared their skin, Hourglass came to the realization that it wasn’t just helping people with oil-absorption and shine-diffusion, it was also remedying their skin:
• 100% reported an improvement in overall skin appearance and skin smoothness
• 100% reported that the product worked without drying skin out
• 83% reported a decrease in oil production and the need for touch-ups
• 80% reported a visible improvement in acne scars
• 70% reported a visible improvement in pore size
• 63% reported a reduction in the severity of breakouts
Therefore Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation bridges the gap between skincare and cosmetics with its paradigm-shifting formula, without using ingredients like salicylic acid that can lead to dryness and flaking. For women dealing with problematic skin, the idea of a foundation that provides a flawless matte finish while simultaneously clearing your complexion is a godsend! If you are concerned this may be too drying for you know that it is infused with clinical levels of two powerful anti-aging ingredients—phytostem edelweiss and lavandox.
I no longer have oily skin, but I sure have aging skin and have been wearing Hourglass Immaculate Liquid Powder Foundation over my SPF for a few days now and when I tell you I don’t need to touch up or even powder my nose, I’m not kidding. I have even worked out in it and can attest that this foundation does not budge and my skin looks flawless. This foundation will remain my go-to throughout the summer…maybe longer.
