Hourglass Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss

Is the ultimate of all lip glosses that I have tried till date! 

I usually am not a lip gloss girl to be honest. I just like to stain my lips with a bright lip colour and that's it really. I cannot stand the stickiness and mess involved in using a gloss. 

However when I come across multifunctional, heavenly products like such, exceptions have to be made you see. I have an Hourglass Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss in Truth which looks pretty simple from its packaging but is a gem of product. 


The colour itself is a universally flattering, out of this world dusky pink. Have a look yourself, isn't it simply delicious looking? 

Can you see the superb pigmentation? This is great news for Indian girls like myself who don't have evenly pigmented lips. I despise that look when the original lip colour peeps through. *cringes*


It gives a fully opaque coverage with no signs of original lip colour or uneven pigmentation peeping through. This also means that I can easily wear this on its own, without the need of slathering a full-on lipstick underneath.

It is just a tad bit sticky but nothing major in comparison to MAC glosses. It has a divine vanilla smell to it and applies so luxuriously, adapting to the lip colour ever so slightly. I am also happy to report that it does not feather outwards whilst on and stays put for quite a few hours.

Do you see the minuscule amount of finely milled golden shimmer in it? I think it helps in giving the illusion that one has fuller lips. Of course, as the product name goes, it does give an 'Extreme Sheen' to the lips.


It is heavily priced around £21 but is totally worth it for someone fussy like me who only wears something on the lips occasionally and if I do not find a flattering colour, I'll just go bare on the lips. Thank god for this!

You can find Hourglass Cosmetics at Liberty in London, Sephora in the US, Zuneta.com and Hourglasscosmetics.com

I've never heard of this brand but you have intrigued me! It is so pretty and your right, very universally flattering. I love glosses you can throw on without a mirror and not have to worry about a bit ol' mess.
