CLEO (Malaysia) - - THE BEAUTY BOX -

When I cre­ated Hour­glass, I wanted a brand that would stand apart from all other lux­ury brands. I wanted us to fo­cus on in­no­va­tion from start to fin­ish and wanted those sci­ence-driven prod­ucts to not only pro­duce re­sults, but still feel and look lux­u­ri­ous. and sup­ple. Af­ter the prod­uct launched, we held a con­sumer study to re­search more into the foun­da­tion’s skin­care ben­e­fits – those with oily, acne-prone skin saw dra­matic, vis­i­ble im­prove­ments in their com­plex­ion, and their skin was less greasy over­all. Grow­ing up, my mother had pink light bulbs in all of the lamps through­out the house. She loved that hue be­cause it was the soft­est and most flat­ter­ing for the com­plex­ion, al­most like can­dle­light. This con­cept was the in­spi­ra­tion for our Am­bi­ent Light­ing Pow­ders. Af­ter the pow­ders launched and be­came more and more pop­u­lar, we wanted to of­fer a se­lec­tion of them in one pal­ette. When we cre­ated the Am­bi­ent Light­ing Pal­ette, we in­cluded two of our best­selling shades – Dim Light and Ra­di­ant Light – plus a third that was, at the time, ex­clu­sive to the pal­ette. The lat­ter is now avail­able for in­di­vid­ual pur­chase as In­can­des­cent Strobe Light in the Am­bi­ent Strobe Light­ing Pow­ders col­lec­tion.
