I was drawn to the Hourglass Eye Shadow Duos when I saw pics on other blogs. I never knew where to get them, and was excited when I saw you could order them from Apothica.com. Imagine my complete GLEE when I noticed a small display at my local Sephora! I had NO idea Sephora was going to be carrying this line! Sure enough, it's on the website as well.
From the Sephora.com website:
Visionaire Eye Shadow Duo

Prism(slate blue shimmer/ black with micro glitter) is a GORGEOUS duo. Perfect for the sultry & sexy smoky eye. The black looks like it would feel grainy, but it's smooth and PIGMENTED as all get out. I picked up WAY more product for the swatch than I wanted, so be careful when you're grabbing up that one to apply to your eye. Start out small, you can always add more!!
I'm not gonna lie. It was the packaging that got me first. It has a swivel mirror on top. VERY cool. I love the color of the packaging as well, however (as you can see from the pics) it's VERY prone to fingerprints, and doesn't look so pretty once that happens. My OCD requires constant cleaning of this! I was surprised the packaging is not heavy, like Guerlain packaging. It's pretty light, and I'm not sure if it's some kind of metal?
Hourglass Eye Shadow Duo's are pricey at $38 each and can be picked up at Sephora and Apothica. I recommend that if you do want to pick them up, you grab items that you know you'll use quite a bit. Like, if you love neutral shades, pick up an Eye Shadow Duo like Suede or Gypsy.
