About
Hourglass

Hourglass was established in 2004 when founder and CEO, Carisa Janes, developed a luxury cosmetics brand with a focus on active ingredients, modern design and exceptional functionality. Debuting first at Barneys New York, the brand has since expanded into Bergdorf Goodman, Sephora, Nordstrom, and Space NK in the US and more than 500 stores worldwide including flagship stores in Venice, CA and New York, NY. Hourglass products are free from parabens and sulfates, predominantly vegan and never tested on animals. 

Hourglass exists at the revolutionary intersection of science, beauty and luxury. The brand is acclaimed for its breakthrough formulations, technological innovations and unwavering commitment to reinvention. Complexion products are infused with the most groundbreaking active ingredients available to create unbelievably surreal skin. Distinguished by sensorial textures, modern color collections, and sleek custom packaging—Hourglass puts the art in state-of-the-art.
