A friend of mine recently gifted me an Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick, I was super excited to give it a go as I'd heard great things about these and you know how much I adore my long lasting lip colours. Muse - the colour looked gorgeous, a beautiful, bright coral - Ok it's a little late and probably a tad off season but if there's anything about me you should know, it's that I'll wear what I want, when I want to! So even though shade would be so well suited to Summer it doesn't mean you can't rock the brights in the darker days!
I'm going to be brutally honest with you and tell you that I didn't like the consistency of this lip product at all. I found it dried too quickly on the lips which made the lip colour difficult to apply, it also made the finish appear patchy and uneven (even though I don't think this comes across in the photographs!) I also found it to be really drying once on my lips, it felt tight and quite uncomfortable to wear. I am more than used to long wearing lip products but this is one that didn't really work for me.
The colour was pretty on, but for someone who adores a strong, vibrant lipstick I thought that, maybe it was just a tad TOO bright. Again, It doesn't appear that way in the pics but in reality the colour was a little more neon than I would usually opt for.
I was so excited to try the Hourglass Opaque Rouge but I must admit I couldn't help but feel a little disappointed, Don't get me wrong it could just be the shade? Sometimes certain colours contain specific pigments that alters the consistency, either way I don't think I'll be rushing to try any more of these any time soon.
Have any of you tried the Hourglass Opaque Rouge's? What do you think? Personally I think I will be sticking to my Sephora lip stains! (As always!)
