Is Hourglass Concealer Water Based?


Hourglass is one of the luxury makeup brands that I personally like quite a bit. Not only because they provide premium products but also because they are a 100% cruelty-free brand. They launched a liquid concealer in 2020 which is becoming pretty popular for it being almost weightless. As a makeup artist, I use Hourglass Vanish™ Airbrush Concealer on my vegan clients with confidence as it is a vegan product. I do get a question quite often regarding the product which is whether the hourglass concealer is water-based or not.

Yes, Hourglass Vanish™ Airbrush Concealer is water-based. Being water-based makes it super light and easy to apply on the skin. You can conceal any blemish on your face; it is almost impossible to tell if you have a concealer.
