Here is a look at the brand new Hourglass Vanish Airbrush Concealer which I have been testing. I am mad for concealer. It is one of the beauty products that I wouldn’t want to live without. This particular launch got me really excited because I love this brand’s take on skin. I have photos and swatches for you.
This is a liquid concealer that comes in the same packaging as Hourglass’ gorgeous lip gloss collection, the Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lip Gloss.

Hourglass Vanish Airbrush Concealer Swatches
I have three of the 22 shades to show you – Birch, Cotton and Oat:
I started off thinking that I was in between Birch and Cotton, so I applied the Birch under my eyes and Cotton on the other areas that needed concealing:
I actually think that Cotton will work for me all over, and I can use Birch when I was extra brightness under the eyes.
Before & After
Here’s a shot with no makeup:
Here’s with foundation (the new Urban Decay All Nighter Primer and a little Givenchy Everwear foundation):
And here it is with the concealer applied (mainly Cotton):
I think I might love this concealer! It has a lovely light creamy texture, offers amazing coverage yet looks and feels really light on the skin. The formula blends like a dream, doesn’t settle into fine lines and resists creasing brilliantly.
The level of pigmentation is great for covering darkness, and purple tones under the eyes, and also balances redness instantly. As well as covering, it is also super brightening, and gives just the right amount of glow making it ideal for the eye area.
When you blend out from around the eye area and the nose, you can lightly buff it over visible pores and it blurs them effortlessly for a real airbrushed effect.
It is also really good on imperfections and blemishes. I have a stubborn spot, which is still hanging around from cheese-overload at Christmas, and it made short work of it with the tiniest amount of product.
I didn’t feel like I needed to set it with powder under my eyes and it lasted very well. It is like a second skin. I set my chin and mouth area as I have a spot and I didn’t want the product to move at all.
You just need a few dots and a little goes a long way. It can be built up without going cakey and it looks and feels super smooth.
Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Concealer Brush
I also absolutely love the new brush too. It is literally the perfect shape for blending under the eye area and also buffing around the nose and patting in over blemishes. If I could design a concealer brush, it would look like this.
It has a unique half-moon shape deigned for controlled application to the contours of the face, especially under the eyes.
