Hey everyone, this is just a quick review about a new lip product that I've recently discovered and fallen completely head over heels in love with. The lip product in question is Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Edition (such a mouthful). I was just browsing through Space NK's selection of beauty products when this liquid lipstick caught my eye. I will admit that I'm a complete lip balm/stick/gloss addict and have a huge collection that is constantly growing, so after a little while researching this product I decided it would be wise to invest. The Liquid Lipstick is essentially a lipgloss that dries to create a matte lipstick that apparently lasts for 14 hours without flaking or drying out your lips. An amazing claim I'm sure you'll agree.
The packaging pleases me greatly, it's a dark grey colour with a transparent panel, and tapered ends - I can't explain why I like it other than it's nice to hold, is that weird?
The lipstick is a coral pink with tiny pieces of gold shimmer, it's so beautiful and is highly pigmented I only needed one coat until it was opaque (as the name suggests). The lipstick comes in 9 different shades and I want every single one! As that's probably not going to happen, I do have my eye on the shades Muse and Ballet.
The lipstick is easy to apply with its doe-foot applicator, just like a lipgloss, and within seconds it starts drying to create a matte lipstick effect. Even though it is matte it's not drying, and still makes the lips look nourished and moisturised although I would suggest applying a lip balm before you apply this lipstick.
I guess it's a bit of a novelty, having a lipgloss that's technically a lipstick but even so, it's an amazing lip product! I haven't worn it for 14 hours, and I probably never will, but I did wear it for a good few hours, ate my lunch, drank some drinks and it was still perfect!
You can buy Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick from Space NK for £23.
