Caudalie isn't the only beauty brand spilling their science-based, skin-saving secrets in Venice. Innovative insider-beloved cosmetics company Hourglass is also opening a boutique in the beachside nabe. Founder and beauty industry vet Carisa Janes first revealed the news to WWD earlier this spring, and we can confirm that the luxe label's set to debut their flagship September 15.
Known for its sleek packaging and celeb-backed bestsellers (like their foolproof liquid eyeliner and flawless Veil Mineral Primer), Hourglass will be located at 1351 Abbot Kinney, right across the street from TOMS. In addition to stocking the brand's full line of makeup, the shop will also offer Hourglass' new skincare line, Janes told Forbes last month. In that chat, she also divulged details on the store's Ambient Lighting Bar, which will allow beauty buffs to customize their own powder palettes.
