After purchasing my Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo, I couldn’t wait to try something else out from their range. If you haven’t heard of Hourglass, they are a fabulous luxury cosmetics company founded in 2004 and can be purchased from Space NK. Hourglass products definitely sit at the high end of the cosmetics spectrum – the brand is acclaimed for its breakthrough formulations, technological innovations and unwavering commitment to reinvention with top quality ingredients (don’t ya know!). I’m such a sucker for high end products in pretty packaging!! 🙂
So off I went and ordered the Hourglass Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss in Child. The colour ‘Child’ is a gorgeous sheer warm golden shimmer.
Now this is going to sound silly, but unless you’ve ever held an Hourglass Lipgloss you probably won’t understand (either that or I’m just plain crazy!) The gloss tube is really nice to hold and use, I’d actually go as far as saying it’s ergonomic! It’s kind of a partly flattened cylinder shape. It’s just really nice to hold! Sorry if that sounds a bit weird!! 🙂
Anyway, more about the gloss!
Pure pigment, pure shine, pure luxury—this intensely-hued, super lustrous lip gloss is formulated with active ingredients that hydrate and restore lips for an immediately soft and smooth effect.
• Richly pigmented, high-shine lip gloss also hydrates lips
• Vitamin E-enhanced formula keeps lips from cracking or chapping
• Wears alone or layers over lipstick and liner to impart opulent shine
• Free of parabens, phthalates and sulfates
This is definitely one of the best lip glosses I’ve used in a long time. From opening the box, the product looks and feels luxurious. The gloss itself is the perfect formula, it’s not sticky and glides on the lips smoothly. The gorgeous golden shimmer sparkles and catches the light, it’s definitely going to be a staple in my makeup bag this summer!
Hourglass Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Glosses are currently £21 at Space NK, which is fairly expensive, but we all need a treat sometimes, right? 😉
I hope you enjoyed my review xxx
