Hourglass Opaque Rouge liquid lipstick

Hourglass is a prestige luxury cosmetic line that uses it's knowledge of skincare and mixes it with cosmetics to create longwearing, skin flattering products.
Over the christmas party season it's vital for makeup to stay put so that we can concentrate on having a good time and not touching up our makeup.
I suffer from dry lips so I am always a little scared to try long wearing lip products as they can often sit on the dry skin and exacerbate the problem.

Opaque Rouge liquid lipstick is an intense coloured lipstick that dries to a velvet-like matte finish.
I love it's small, slimline packaging that fits neatly into the smallest clutch bag!
The application is a doe foot sponge applicator that allows precise application.
Product glides over the lips with immediate bold colour. No real need to build up the layers as one sweep and you're good to go!
Lipstick dries quickly with no tackiness.

I have been wearing this all morning and colour pay off has remained true with no feathering or bleeding.
Obviously this product will feel permantly dry on the skin as it has no gloss finish but it does not feel any drier than a standard matte lipstick.
Available in nine vibrant shades these are more of an expensive lip product at £23.
We sampled the following colours. 
The colour in Raven is amazing and definitely one i'll be wearing this festive season. If you love MAC Lady Danger then this colour is one to look out for. 

In the UK you can purchase these from Liberty   
or SpaceNK  
For other stockists check out the Hourglass website
