I am seriously one lucky woman. Recently I struck a conversation with a lovely woman (who happens to be my yoga student) regarding a wedding I am about to attend in the Philippines, and the lack of decent lipstick I own. Coincidentally, this woman works for a company that carries makeup and decided to shower me with Hourglass Liquid Lipsticks in four shade as my going away gift. I was so grateful for her and I could not wait to try them out. The one that truly stood out for me and I thought was appropriate for my event was the one pictured above and below.
The shade it called Edition and it is a beautiful pink. Literally it is a liquid lipstick. It wear and stays on like a regular lipstick. Its is awesome because it comes with a lip brush (like you get in some glosses) and I can easily wear this on my lips without messing up. It is a matte color, so it does not wear like a shiny gloss, but I like the matte for an event like a wedding. There is no stickiness nor flaking or drying. I tried it on and for 12 hours (I was testing the waters while out with friends!) it remained beautifully pink. Sticking with classy and elegant, this color really goes so well with anything.
So I give this a 5 star rating, and I would take off one star for pricing but heck, I got it for free so I can’t complain! Just remember to moisturize and exfoliate the lips before application!
