In 2008, Hourglass moves to Venice, California. The location of the Hourglass offices is strongly rooted in the company culture, and is also home to founder Carisa Janes.
At the forefront of biotech research is Hourglass’ first skincare collection. Equilibrium Biomimetic Skin Active Serum is the first product, launching in 2014 at the Hourglass flagship store in Venice, California.
Ambient Lighting Powders debuted in 2013 with a new take on pressed powders. Inspired by founder Carisa’s mother’s affinity for creating flattering light with pink lightbulbs throughout the family home, Ambient Lighting Powders are designed to recreate a range of flattering lighting effects, regardless of skin tone or type.
