Hourglass Opaque Rouge Lip Polish – In Edition

Saturday, 7 March 2015

I picked this Hourglass Lip Polish up in a blog sale and to be honest, I bought it because I love everything I have ever owned from Hourglass, and because it was a bargain. I had looked at the range before in Space NK, but at £23 for the smallest tube I have ever seen (it looks like a sample size) I just couldn’t bear to fork out! All hail the bargainous blog sale!!! 

Apart from being teeny tiny, the packaging is as gorgeous as you would expect from Hourglass, the familiar bronzey-gold colour scheme broken up by a window showing the colour of the product inside. The Lip Polish can be applied directly to the lips using the doe foot applicator that comes with it but for precision, I like to use my Bobby Brown lip brush.

The colour I chose was Edition – a pinky-coral or coral-pink yes probably coral-pink best describes it –  whatevs, it is a bright, bold, confident shade that I can’t wait to try with a tan. 

The formula is really thick and initially quite sticky but just let it dry ( it takes about 30 secs) and once it has, it will stick to your lips like glue. And when I say stick, I mean for 6 hours easily. Six hours of eating and drinking with maybe the odd snog thrown in, did not faze this baby at all. Genuinely, this is the first ever lip product I was conscious of removing at the end of the night.

In short, I LOVE the Hourglass Lip Polish and can’t wait to pick up some more shades. Have you ever tried this product? What shades do you recommend I pick up next?
