Oh gosh! I am having a bit of a moment over here! I have literally gone from not knowing anything at all about these new palettes to gasping repeatedly when I saw the photos to nearly fainting when I got my very own sample in my hand! Slight exagg but you know!! Please be my guest and feast your eyes on the Hourglass Modernist Exposure Eye Palette. Incredible doesn’t even begin to get near it…

It is quite literally one of the most amazing things I have seen. I was almost too afraid to touch it but you want to see the swatches right?

I am so pleased that I got the Exposure palette sample because I think it’s the one I was really drawn to and I think it will be a winner for many.

Oh my goodness what is not to love about this!

And the moment you have been waiting for – those little stripes of magic on my ridiculously pale arm! You should know that these are very light swatches as I was afraid to hurt it! I hugged the palette a lot after!

The texture is so soft and beautiful that it was like angels crying on my fingertips (sorry, the melodrama is back!). In fact, it is perhaps a little too soft as there is quite a lot of powder flying when you first go in, but the shadows are so smooth and buttery that I can forgive it. Also, the shades in this particular palette apply really smoothly.

To check out all the details – see my original post HERE. I hope you enjoyed my Hourglass Modernist Exposure Eye Palette Swatches…I know I did!

Hourglass Modernist Eyeshadow Palettes launch February 2015 for £56. You’ll find them at Liberty, Space NK, and John Lewis

UPDATE: It is so expensive – I am not entirely sure they are worth it, but they are so different and beautiful, and Exposure is such good shade range for me that I use mine pretty much every day. I have heard that application with some of the palettes are patchy but I definitely don’t have that complaint with Exposure. I really love it.
