Hourglass Scattered Light Glitter Eyeshadow


I am so excited to talk about these eyeshadows! When Trend Mood previewed these, I knew I had to get my hands on them. Side note, Trend Mood is a very dangerous and addictive Instagram account. For those of you that are not familiar with Hourglass, they are a luxury brand. The quality and attention to detail shown in their products is amazing. Every time they release something, I get so excited because I have never been disappointed by what I have purchased from them. It’s safe to say that Hourglass is one of my favourite brands out there!

The Scattered Light Glitter eyeshadows come in 5 colours. I bought 2 of the shades I was most attracted to and they are Aura and Smoke. If you are curious about the other colours, check out Sephora.

The eyeshadows contain 3.5 g of product and retail for $38 (CAN).


Scattered Light Glitter eyeshadows are creamy but not so creamy that they fall apart on the finger or fall of the eye. The opacity of the colour is really beautiful and soft. My favourite thing about these is that the glitter is tiny or as Sephora better describes it as “micro”. Sephora also states that the glitter is “infused with light reflecting pearls” which I do agree with because they catch the light and sparkle so beautifully. Every single time I have worn these, people have told me that they love my eye makeup or have asked me what I’m wearing on my eyes. They glide on easily and work well with other eyeshadows, especially with a cream texture. My favourite way of applying these is using my fingers. For areas where it feels awkward to use fingers, I use a thin flat synthetic eyeshadow brush.


The eyeshadows are made without Parabens, Sulfates and Phthalates and are cruelty free as are all of Hourglass products.


Aura is a really unique, warm pink.


Smoke is a cool toned taupe.

The Scattered Light Glitter eyeshadows are for everyone who enjoys glitter, especially for people who are interested in a more “sophisticated” glitter. I think these are beautiful during the day but can be worn on a fun night out. Because the glitter is so tiny (or micro), a lot of women within different age groups can enjoy these. I’ve been wearing these since I received them in the mail and have been considering buying another colour. I’m hoping these do well and Hourglass expands the colour range!

Hope to see you soon,
