TOP 5 | Best of Hourglass Cosmetics Review + Swatches

Over the years, I have been asked repeatedly for introductory brand guides, so I have been focusing heavily on these Top 5 edits this quarter. Since I am often short on time and cannot always dedicate extra time to permanent products when limited edition collections roll out faster and faster each year, these curated reviews have allowed me to share old favorites. I am thrilled to spotlight one of my favorite niche brands, Hourglass Cosmetics, now available via Nordstrom. Hourglass has been rather elusive over the years, so this first department store launch will finally make their incredible products accessible to more of my readers!

Dolce&Gabbana Beauty has been reinventing classics since the line first launched in 2009. The luxurious gilded packaging and diverse color range are nearly irresistible, and now you can find these phenomenal products at Nordstrom. I have dabbled with most of the brand's offerings, but here I will share my favorites are shared and reviewed in order of my preference after the jump!

TOP 5 | Best of Kate Somerville Skin Care Review

Kate Somerville has been one of my regular skin care brands since I was in college. Fast forward nearly six years later, and I'm still loving her ExfoliKate treatment. It just goes to show that Kate really has produced a cult classic, and that is why I continue to go back to it, even after all these years. The range has expanded quite a bit recently, so here is mix of new and old favorites from the brand! I highly recommend Kate Somerville skin care because it is effective yet affordable. I realize that not everyone can or wants to budget for SK-II and 3LAB products, so I wanted to share these awesome alternatives with you. I've actually tried a substantial amount more from Kate Somerville than what I have reviewed for you today, but this selection was curated specifically to share the must-try standouts!

Long-Lasting Holiday Hair Curling Tutorial feat. NuMe Titan 3 Wand (19mm)

Searching for a low maintenance hair style to try? Look no further than these long-lasting curls using a titanium curling wand. Titanium is lighter in weight and heats up hotter than tourmaline, so the Titan 3 makes for quicker styling that lasts for days! The Lustrum barrels do make my hair feel softer and bouncier, but the titanium makes curling my hair so fast and easy, which is more ideal during these hectic holiday months. I highly recommend wearing the heat protectant glove at all times, however, since the heat from the Titan 3 is very intense!

NuMe White Truffle Hair Primer
NuMe Titan 3 Curling Wand (19mm)
