Hourglass Confession Lipstick

There’s something quite 80’s about a long handled lipstick but none the less it does feel very glamorous albeit slightly unnecessary.
 The latest Hourglass lipsticks are an ultra slimline, high intensity refillable lipstick.

When you purchase your colour of choice it will come along with a gold long handled applicator (£28 for lipstick and applicator together). Once you have finished your lipstick you can then simply buy the refills to click into your applicator. The refills are £18 each. You could just purchase the refills on their own if you’re not fussed with the glam applicator. It still functions as a normal lipstick.

Let’s talk about the lipstick intensity! WOW! These are like applying a layer of creamy paint onto your lips. Opaque, rich pigment that translates deeper in colour tone than you expect. It covers the lip in one swipe and delivers a creamy thick layer that is actually pretty hard to remove. You need to use something oil based to get them off. They have a balmy matte finish and although it feels totally comfortable and non-drying on the lips, it would be too exposing for a dry textured or cracked skin. The matte finish highlights any flaws in the natural lip.

Beautiful array of colours, which cater for all skin tones. The slim angled tip allows great precision and because the handle is weighted it feels very comfortable and controlled to apply.

The thick texture means you don’t need to layer or re apply much which is good because you would get through this lipstick super fast if you had to touch up regularly.

If you love the finish and colour choices you can simply buy alternative colours and interchange them in your applicator.

Here are the shades…
