Review: Hourglass Film Noir Lash Lacquer

I get giddy when I hear about a new kind of beauty product like this next one. It’s essentially why I started in the first place. The line is HOURGLASS COSMETICS and the product is called Film Noir Lash Lacquer.

What it is: “an ultra-glossy, inky black top coat for lashes that creates length, volume and high-gloss shine using a unique brush applicator and latex-like formula that fans lashes.”

How it works: It’s applied after mascara (but the end of the wand is not a spooly, it’s a small brush. The kind I wish every lip gloss came with but that’s another story) like their Film Noir Full Spectrum Mascara (you don’t have to use it with their mascara but they do recommend not using a thickening, tubing or otherwise heavy mascara) and takes lashes from a day look to a full-effect night look. You just literally paint the formula onto your already mascara’d lashes. It seems like they got this idea from the cake mascaras of yester-year.

Hourglass-Cosmetics-Film-Noir-Lash-Laquer-pictures My take: I followed the New York launch of this a few weeks ago and just couldn’t understand how it worked but obviously now I do. It did make my lashes glossier looking and just amp’d them up overall, which is nice since there really is no way to add to mascara after it’s dried, short of taking it all off and starting again. What did it feel like on lashes? Like my favorite Kiss Me Mascara! Most formulas feel crumbly and thin on my lashes, like they’re going to flake off at any moment, but not this stuff. And it removes super easily with very little makeup remover.

So my final Springer thoughts are …

The proof is in the pudding …

A picture is worth a thousand words …

Hi EyeLashLOVEr - you mean just use the Film Noir Mascara or use that mascara with this product? It probably does make a difference.
