Yesterday I attended a fabulous and fun Yelp Elite Event at the Hourglass Cosmetics Flagship store in Venice and it was the bees knees!

As a long-time fangirl of this brand, I soaked up all their skincare and beauty tips/tricks and learned about new products. VP of Global Artistry and Training Laura Janes rocked the Complexion Master Class–debriefing us about the story of Hourglass, demo-ing why Hourglass reigns supreme (even demonstrating on herself a face of makeup within 10 minutes without a mirror), and showcasing their new products–and I was smitten.

A luxury cosmetics brand that is against animal testing, free of parabens, phthalates, sulfates, synthetic fragrances, synthetic dyes, vegan-friendly, and gluten-free (no, not to eat but for those with gluten skin sensitivity). Best of all? They’re revolutionizing the way we see and use skincare and makeup.

The Ambient Lighting products are incredible. Think of it as an IG filter #IRL. It’ll transform your #selfie game, for serious!

I feasted on an elaborate cheese, fruit, and breadboard. Such a treat. I LOVE the swag bag of a full-size Girl Lip in Believer, travel-size of the Veil Mineral Primer, 1.5mm Mechanical Gel Eye Liner in Obsidian. Thanks, Yelp LA and Brittany for another awesome YE event. My skin looks unreal right now!

My Holy Grail Hourglass Products

If you haven’t tried their products, these are my holy grail Hourglass products:
Hourglass Cosmetics Veil Mineral Primer SPF 15 1 fl oz. // Their best-selling item, selling 1 bottle every minute! I can see why this award-winning, state-of-the-art primer is a staple in many makeup artists’ bags because it extends the wear of foundation for a perfect complexion that lasts; an oil-free and water-resistant primer not only creates a smooth, even canvas for makeup, but also conceals redness, minimizes the appearance of pores, fine lines and wrinkles; and provides broad spectrum SPF 15 protection.
HOURGLASS Ambient Lighting Palette: Dim light -Incandescent Light -Radiant Light // Glow, baby, glow! I’m a sucker for palettes not only because it’s a value but because these shades are unreal! Their Ambient Lighting Powders utilize Photoluminescent Technology to filter out harsh light and refine the appearance of the complexion. Each of these high-tech, soft-focus finishing powders recreate an exquisitely flattering light source. Easy translation: That lit from within IG filter #IRL. The powders can be applied individually or layered to imbue skin with a multidimensional glow.
Hourglass Ambient Lighting Blush Incandescent Electra (BNIB) (Cool Peach color) // I always get compliments on how healthy my skin looks. I owe it all to this product. It’s a natural flush of color that gives my skin look vibrant and glowing. This captivating hybrid blush combines the illuminating effects of Ambient® Strobe Lighting Powder with breathtakingly modern hues to instantly brighten cheeks for seamless, glowing, lit from within color.  INCANDESCENT ELECTRA is a cool peach blush blended with Incandescent Strobe Light for a celestial glow.

Friends of Ours.

Hello, and welcome to It’s Jou Life! We’re Wayne and Jennifer, a (relatively) newly wed couple who found love in the most unexpecting place. This is our DIY / lifestyle blog—musing about natural, healthy, artisanal living, and everything in between.

We started this blog because our family and friends always ask us how we grow our own organic vegetables, what is Wayne woodworking on now, to send over our miso black cod recipe, what snacks stock our pantry, a tutorial on that cute zippered pouch, tips for marathon running, where do we worship, what to bring for a camping trip, what’s Jennifer’s skincare regimen… you get the idea. This is our way to share life’s loves.
