Sorry, Anne-Marie Slaughter—it looks like women can have it all, at least when it comes to cosmetics. With Hourglass, beauty maven Carisa Janes gives us high performance makeup, a beautiful buffet of colors and to top it all off, luxurious packaging.

Now what exactly do we mean by “high performance makeup?” We’ll leave that to Ms. Janes, founder and CEO of Hourglass, to describe. But think complex no-compromise formulations with SPF, antioxidants and  light-refracting technology. The Ambient Lighting Palette, for example, brightens the skin appropriately for different types of lighting and times of day. Nifty!

Check out the video below to learn more about the story behind Hourglass.


Intrigued? Stop by our Beverly Hills store Friday, October 18th from
3 to 5 p.m. to meet Ms. Janes in person.
