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.
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.
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:
