Hourglass Cosmetics Launches New Lipstick and Mascara With Celebrity Makeup Artist Gina Brooke!

Hourglass Cosmetics finally launched the much-anticipated collaboration with Madonna’s makeup artist and Hourglass’ very own Artistic Director, Gina Brooke!

The collaboration consists of a new collection of Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipsticks ($30) and Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara ($28).

The lipsticks come in an engraved case that is refillable with a total of 12 gorgeous shades that range from vibrant reds, creamy nudes to hot pinks available. The mascara, on the other hand, features a triple-cut, hourglass-shaped brush to add instant volume and length to lashes without clumping or flaking.

I was very lucky to have met the uber talented Gina in person earlier this year (did I mention she was L-O-V-E-L-Y?!) and she listed the mascara as one of her must-haves, plus Hourglass products have never failed me. Will report back with reviews once I get my hands on these!

The Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipsticks and Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara are now available at hourglasscosmetics.com and will hit Barneys New York and Sephora starting August 26th.

  1. I just ordered some products from Sephora and it came with a deluxe sample of this mascara which I have yet to open and try out. I’m currently trying to use up some oldies that are at the point of expiring some time soon (Maybelline’s Lash Stiletto and Dior’s Extase). Can’t wait to hear your review and see what you think of it!
