Lip Service: Hourglass ICON

This Holiday Season, pucker up with the ultimate collection of red lippies!

It’s no mystery why Hourglass appropriately named its blue-red shades of Lipstick, gloss, matte lacquer, and lip pencil ICON. The weight and feel of the lipstick packaging alone makes it… well… iconic. It feels like Old Hollywood. It’s luxurious without being obnoxious. It’s definitely something you want to pull out of your purse in public for a quick touch up.

Each one of these products is amazing in its own right. Each is high in pigmentation and feel amazing on the lips.

All of these lippies exceed expectations in terms of wear and comfort. The gloss is non-sticky, the opaque rouge wears like a moisturizing stain, and the lipstick wears like a comfortable lip balm. I applied all with no additional moisturizing or exfoliating.
I am over the moon at this collection of reds. They are a luxurious way to to truly make you feel like an ICON.

Tom Ford Holiday 2012: Diabolique

For Holiday 2012, Tom Ford released a complimentary lipstick collection to accompany the Jasmin Rouge Fragrance. The four lipsticks are all shades of red, meant to flatter every skin tone. There are two shimmer, and two matte colors. The darkest matte color, Diabolique, is the one that caught my eye.

Why are the color labels always crooked on these lipsticks? SMH. You’d think that for $55 a pop, they’d at least get the packaging labels straight. They’re ALWAYS crooked. Doesn’t matter what color. It’s just something I’ve noticed…
I do love the new lipstick packaging so much better than the old white version though.

The formula is creamy, but a little dry. I’d suggest a healthy dose of lip balm before putting it on. But the color is rich and highly saturated. I think that this is meant to be a ‘blue’ based red… but I notice that it wears warm and dark on me… like maybe there’s a little bit of brown in there as well.
