Hourglass // Girl Lip Stylo
A couple years back, one of the first things I purchased from Hourglass was their Femme Nude Lip Stylo. I'm a sucker for crayon-shaped lippies and nude shades so this was right up my alley. Hourglass was a new brand to me, at the time, and I loved the packaging and sleek styling. I still have that lipstick as it holds a very special place in my heart.
Needless to say, I was SO excited when I saw all these GIRL Lip Stylos! I picked up:
- Visionary - a beautiful brick color that isn't too brown nor red. It's incredibly wearable for such a "dramatic" type color.
- Lover - this is the perfect red with just a hint of orange. It's one of my favorite shades for summer when I get a little tan.
- Futurist - a nude, my-lips-but-better type shade. I love this color. It has a slightly cool undertone which makes it very wearable on my skin tone.
- Peacemaker - very similar to Futurist, but with a hint of peach making it a more girly, feminine and typically prettier shade.
Right off the bat, I'm going to say that these are what I was hoping the Chanel Jumbo Lip Crayons to be. The sleek, expensive-feeling packaging with a cap that clicks on, and the formula is smooth going on, but doesn't feel too slippery. It also dries down to a lovely satin finish that doesn't feel drying.
These have a slight sweet scent (vanilla? cocoa? I can never tell) which disappears once it's applied. Here are lip swatches:
I'm getting the itch to buy more and there are so many shades to choose from. I think I may go with Influencer... or maybe Activist? Have you tried these? Have a favorite color?
