HOURGLASS Film Noir Lash Lacquer

You may have noticed us talking about Hourglass products recently, we are new to the brand and so far have loved what we have tried. Hourglass is an expensive range, but the products are unique and gorgeous. 
This product is a lash lacquer and is such a handy and effective product, one of those products that once in your makeup bag, you could never not have it to hand. The lacquer is an inky black forumla, with a runny consistency that basically you can use in a variety of ways. You apply the product after applying your mascara (Hourglass, of course, recommend that you use their Full Spectrum mascara), but it is amazing with any other mascara, and it totally transforms your lashes, adding more drama, definition and intensity, it is great for taking lashes from day to night in just a couple of strokes. It is easy to use, I just glide the brush along the base of my lashes then work the brush up in zigzag movements to coat my lashes fully, and voila, refreshed and transformed lashes in seconds.

It doesn't stick lashes together or clog them at all. A handy product for any kit as it does creates length and fullness. The small brush applicator makes getting to the very root of the lash a breeze. The colour is rich and dark which really transcends onto the lashes. 
Hourglass pride themselves on using the best quality ingredients that are designed to be good to your skin but also providing make-up that has maximum effectiveness and beauty enhancement. As you can image then, the products are all paraben and fragrance free, and do not test on animals. 

Hourglass is available at Sephora in the US and has recently launched at Liberty in London, this product being exclusive to the store retailing at £25.


  1. Nice packaging. The wand looks really odd though. I wont be able to get this though sadly.. no where near anywhere that sells it D:

  2. Interesting product, thanks for sharing!

  3. This product seems quite unique and definitely interesting! I am really glad to hear that Hourglass are paraben and fragrance free, so it's a lot better for us, and to round it off they don't test on animals yayy! I shall definitely be checking them out :)

    Absolutely loving the brushes Samantha, I bought the stippling brush today!

    Love you girls xo

  4. What an odd product, never seen anything like it before. Could you use it in one of your tutorials? I am curious about the effect!
    I have one of the lipglosses by Hourglass, Siren. It's the most gorgeous metallic orangey red I have ever seen and I highly recommend it!

  5. Interesting! I'd like to see this "in action" to watch how to apply it and how it changes the look.

  6. I'm a HUGE fan of Hourglass products and I was so excited when I first found the concession in Liberty (I'd been buying from Zuneta before that, they also stock the complete line). I even had my makeup done at the counter by Gina Brooke a little while ago which was a real thrill!

    I have the lash lacquer and you've inspired me to crack it out today. Have you tried the Film Noir mascara? That's one of my absolute favourites.

  7. Hello,

    I don't know where else to ask this and I cannot seem to find it anywhere.

    Is there a lacquer on the market that you apply to eyeliner to keep it from transferring? I have hooded eyes, and I use primer, but black and dark brown end up above my crease everytime....

    Thank you!!!

  8. Sounds promising! Please use it in your tutorial. I'd like to see the transformation from day to night lashes. Thank you.

  9. I never really understood the difference in using this and coating your lashes in black liquid liner... Is the effect really that dramatic by comparison? x
