Lip Service: Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick

Hourglass is getting into the ‘liquid lipstick’ business in a major way. Most formulas offer a gloss like texture with a shiny finish… but the Hourglass version is distinctly matte, and can take some getting used to.

I’ll be doing a series of reviews on this formula and colors (which I’m still working through) likely in the form of FOTD (instead of a separate review for each shade). But I have to dedicate a complete post to my favorite shade… a bright orange called Riviera:

 The containers for these are small. About the length of the fat little lipglosses, and the width of the tall lip glosses. Not to worry. A little bit of this product goes a very long way.

As you can see, this color is NOT for the timid.
I was worried about trying this formula on a dry lip (since it sets matte), so I heavily moisturized my lips and scrubbed them a bit before applying the liquid lipstick. The more smooth the lip surface, the better this formula will perform.

I’m still testing road-worthiness and longevity on this opaque orange goodness. I’ll be sure to report back as I gather more intel. In the meantime, you can check out Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick HERE.
