A Nude for Every Mood and Every Look! Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo No.2

Heads up guys! Nude lips are going to be huge this fall! And one of my FAVOURITE brands, Hourglass Cosmetics is going to change the way you think about nude lips AND about lip crayons, cause yeah-this is another one of those!

The Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo Collection is called “Notorious Nudes,” because according to the company, there are few things as strikingly beautiful as nude lips. I think it’s a great tagline, because a great nude lipstick can be notoriously hard to find! Hourglass has created six shades of nudes that of course you can match to compliment your skin tone, but the company wants you to think OUTSIDE the nude box. They’ve created shades that can be used to match your look-from fresh-faced ingénue to edgy bohemian, or your mood-artistic, minimalistic, spontaneous or provocative. There’s an Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo for every mood and every look! This is GENIUS.

Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo

The Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo($35 CDN, $30 USD) is sleek and is the shmexxxxiest lip crayon out there! It’s weighted and feels substantial and luxurious. It’s retractable and never needs sharpening.

The shade I was sent is Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo No.2, which is described as a warm honeyed-beige nude and I say that’s pretty spot on:

The Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo formula is a creamy,medium to full coverage formula with a satin finish. Vitamin E helps nourish, protect, and moisturize lips.

Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo No.2

I find Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo No.2 goes on really smooth and satiny at first, but with time becomes pretty close to a matte look. It lasts quite a long time for a lip crayon-a good 3 hours for me. It doesn’t transfer very much either, and I know this because I drink a lot of water you guys-like all day-and I saw no lip marks on my glass whilst testing the wear. It can feel a bit drying as time goes on though, so I do think you need to put some lip balm on before application to take care of that.

I love it! And now I really want to check out the other shades of Hourglass Femme Nudes! They’ll be available at Sephora mid-August! Having a wardrobe of great nude lipsticks is something that’s possible thanks to Hourglass! The idea of having a nude to suit my mood, or to go with “looks” is really appealing!

To go with each Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo, celebrity makeup artist Moani Lee created some amazing makeup looks:

product sent by PR for review, notoriously nude lips can be yours as well! 🙂

  • what a gorgeous apricot nude! I like it a lot 🙂

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks! It’s really unique!

  • that looks great on you! and i think having a nude lipstick is amazingly versatile so i agree w/ matching a nude to your look. it really helps make dramatic eyes that much more dramatic

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks! Agree!! I like the idea of having a few for different looks a lot.

  • I love nude lips especially for mod looks! I’m totally crushing on all these shades, Tracy!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Me too! Mod is FUN!!

  • oh my gosh oh my gosh oh my gosh I’m SO EXCITED over these. Looks gorgeous on you! Didn’t your husband say nudes were his favorite lip color on you, too? Smart man 😉

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Hahaha yes! Thanks! I’m excited to see the rest for sure! Which shade appeals to you?

  • Oh oh oh! That’s the shade I wanted! Looks fab on you! I love that it’s more orange than pink.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Yeah me too! Peachier nudes are better for me. And you too!

  • Hey Tracy, I can’t wear anything too beige but it looks great on you! I’ll be taking a look at the more rosy shade in this range for sure!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      🙂 The rosy one would look really pretty on you Sunny!

  • How did I not know your were growing your hair out?! This *whole time* I thought you had super short hair. I love the length! The packaging on these Hourglass crayons really is sexy. I love that there were looks put together for each shade. I always appreciate when brands do that so anyone who needs guidance but loves makeup can still be included in the awesomeness (I am one of those who previously – and sometimes still – needed guidance!).

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      LOL haha I don’t know? 🙂 It’s actually even longer, but you know the curls make it look shorter. If I blow dry it it comes past my shoulders actually. I’ve been growing it so that I have enough length of grey eventually to get it cut short haha!

  • TracyBeautyReflections

    Thanks Meryl! You are sweet! xo

  • Liz

    Oh wow, that’s pretty! 🙂 I agree with your assessment so far.

    I’m having a bit of hard time trying to get No. 6 to work, but I think it’s just a matter of doing the rest of the face right. Nudes are difficult, lol.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Hahaha yeah, and certain nude shades need certain looks. I used to hate nudes, but this year I really like them a lot! I find I can wear them really easily now for some reason, and do so all the time actually. You just gotta get used to it I think-maybe haha!

  • I love a good nude lip, so classic and always pretty when you get the right shade! The packaging of these is gorgeous too x

    Evelyn @ We Were Raised By Wolves

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Agree! These make it really easy too!

  • This is such a perfect nude shade on you, Tracy! I got #3 but have yet to start testing.
    I’m super excited though! And LOVE that the packaging has a bit more heft to it compared to the Lip Treatment Oil they released. It’s super nice!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks Becca! I’m excited and want everyone to get reviewing the shades so I can pick another LOL!

  • Icaria

    Ok that’s it! These “crayons” are gorgeous and one will be mine! Only question is, which one? 🙂

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Haha I think any of them would be a great choice!

  • Lily

    The packaging is definitely posh! And I love this shade on you!!! Gah, Hourglass… get your butt here!! LOL

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Hahahaha they need to go to you for sure! thanks Lily! xo

  • you look soo beautiful in this picture. I love that this nude doesn’t wash you out by even an ounce – its really lovely on you.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Awww, thanks Shivani! You are sweet!

  • I’m really not huge on nudes (I think I have 2 lippies and 2 glosses), but you’ve made me reconsider. Who knew there were so many shades of nude?

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Haha I know, right? 🙂

  • A great “nude” is really hard to find! I saw a swatch of #4 somewhere and I think that’s my shade! I don’t really have any nudes. It seems like the ones I’ve tried make me look cray-cray b/c it lightens my natural lip color so much. I don’t want to look like a soap opera actress in a hospital scene, ya know?! This color is really flattering on you and I too had no idea your hair was so long! You look great with long OR short hair!

  • Emma Bovary

    Hourglass products just look so luxe, I want some just to hold and stare at I think.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Hahaha I know! This is the prettiest lip crayon around!

  • Jayne

    Now that Sephora has that points event, I don’t feel quite so badly about spending $35 on one of these babies!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Hahaha yes do it! You’ll love them!

  • I love the way you do your makeup, it looks so effortless and natural. Thumbs up! And… Hourglass is amazing! I love their Ambient Lighting Powder and I tried the Veil Fluid foundation, it’s gorgeous but I wish they had a better range of colours. I couldn’t find a good match 🙁

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Awww, thanks MAria! That so kind of you!
      I agree they need a wider range of colours. The Ambient Powders are my fave!

  • Toya

    Hmm, INTERESTING concept on nude lips! Hourglass is so pimp. LOL. I will most definitely be checking these out, the brand pretty much can do no wrong in my eyes!

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Right? I agree, everything they do I love!

  • makeupmagpieblog

    So pretty! This color suits you 🙂 I want to try one of these but can’t make up my mind which one. I’m leaning towards this one or No. 5.

    • TracyBeautyReflections

      Thanks! 🙂 #5 is really pretty!
