If you loved the Vanish Foundation stick from Hourglass, you will be interested in this. Here’s the low down on the brand new Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Liquid Foundation. I have had so many questions about it as it is pretty pricey, so I thought I’d make a video to show you how it performs. Also check out my swatches, photos and thoughts below.
Available HERE now!
I am a fan of the Vanish products from Hourglass. I love the stick foundation and also the Flash highlighting sticks. The formula is beautiful for both – melting yet long lasting and so convenient to use and travel with. The next step is a liquid version of the foundation, which is very exciting because liquid is my favourite format for base.

Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Liquid Foundation Shades
So this newbie comes in 32 shades which is great. The stick launched in 26 shades so there’s more on offer here if you didn’t find your match the first time around. I tend to use shade Vanilla in the stick. I think Porcelain is more my match now for the liquid.
Hourglass Vanish Seamless Finish Liquid Foundation Swatches
I have shades Porcelain, Vanilla and Shell in the liquid:
Here’s the finished look with Porcelain (check out the video for application and before and after):
I do really like this foundation but I think it’s tiny bit on the matte side for me. It is luminous, but I like things a bit dewier and I found that the stick ticked that box much more for me.
This foundation wears well. It stayed true to colour and kept the redness and pigmentation in my skin well covered, so I was really pleased with that. It is quite long wearing although it did wear off a little around my nose, as I have been a little sniffly, and also on my chin a bit. I think it’s best if you don’t touch your face too much.
The question is, is it worth £51? Personally, I prefer the stick version which is £42. It has a dewier finish which is more my kind of finish! I think if you like a more velvet matte finish, the new liquid may be more up your street, and it could potentially work quite well for oilier skin types. I am going to keep trying this and see if it grows on me because I do really like it, it just isn’t love quite yet.
Check out the NARS Natural Longwear Radiant Foundation (£35) which I think is still my fave.
