Hourglass Cosmetics has created a new lipstick and mascara for Fall 2010, which was created in collaboration with Gina Brooks.  Gina is a well known celebrity makeup artist with clients such as Madonna, Anne Hathaway and Naomi Campbell.

Shown above is the new Femme Rouge lipstick in color Fresco.   The case is a solid feeling metal case in Hourglass’ signature bronze tone metal and the Hourglass logo is imprinted into the the tube of lipstick.  Personally, I love this particular shade on me.   It’s a beautiful rosy brown shade that goes on fairly sheer and is buildable in color.  

Besides the beautiful color and case, this lipstick is guaranteed to be one of my all-time favorites!   The texture is so incredible!   It’s soft and creamy, not a heavy creamy, but a soft silk velvet feeling.   Pure luxury in a tube.

Femme Rouge is moisturizing with Vitamin E and has protecting anti-oxidants.  You won’t find parabens in this lipstick either.  Surprisingly, this lipstick is refillable too!  $30 and available at Barney’s and Sephora and Sephora.com.

The other piece in the Fall 2010 Collection is Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara.   The brush is an hourglass shape with “pinwheel” bristles and gives me “wow” lashes.   Very full, voluminous lashes that do not clump, flake or dry.  Created with Pro-Vitamin B5 for conditioning and hydrating and is paraben, sulfate and phthalate free.  This too, is in the signature bronze shade metal tube like the lipstick.  

On Friday, September 10th, Hourglass will host a “Runway to Realway” Fashion’s Night Out event at the Sephora store in New York City’s Union Square. Artistic Director Gina Brooke (shown above) and a team of makeup artists will create a performance art, avant-garde makeup show featuring the Fall 2010 collection, followed by consultations and Q&A. The event will take place from 5:00 pm – 10:00 pm, with Gina’s performance at 7:00 pm.
