Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Icon

IMG_4044I’ve only tried a handful of the minis from the Sephora Give Me More Lip gift set so far but i have a feeling I’ve already found the best one. It’s a matte, long lasting liquid lipstick – right up my street and already on my wishlist but as yet haven’t purchased because of its hefty price tag. I have it in a mini size which I believe is available from Sephora in the states but I haven’t found a regular UK seller. It’s £23 full price so not something I’m about to go out and buy every shade of but definitely something I’d happily collect a few more colours of.

IMG_4041IMG_4042It’s a thin consistency and you really do only need a little to get a good opaque layer. With products like this less tends to be more, the thicker you apply is the more it can flake but a thin layer and it’s there as long (if not longer) than you want it. I wore it for an entire day, ate, drank coffee etc etc.. didn’t budge. One of the most amazing lip products I’ve ever tried. The applicator appears to be a bog standard same ole same ole but it’s actually very flexible and allows much more control than your average doe foot. Although the size I have is small I don’t wear a red lip every day so I can’t imagine I’ll make my way through it however I plan to pick up a more neutral pink shade so expect to hear more on how a larger size compared very very soon!

    I love the look of all Hourglass makeup, just based on the packaging alone. I would love some ambient lighting powders but I would be gutted to spend so much money for it to be nothing special.

    I love this color. I have never tried anything by Hourglass but I keep getting reminded by beautiful people such as yourself that I should!
