The Review ~ Hourglass Opaque Rouge


Everybody needs to find their perfect red, and this ladies and gents is pretty perfect. 

The Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Icon, is a light-weight , richly pigmented , long lasting lipstick. It gives you the color and lasting power you need without the dry patches (I'm looking at  you MAC Ruby Woo). The small applicator allows for a precise and smooth application, and the color is exactly what I want in a red. Hourglass describes Icon as a blue based red, which I agree with, its a very classic red that plenty of skin tones will be able to pull off. There's a depth to it that I wasn't able to capture on my camera but the color is definitely a lot deeper. I love that it is easy and comfortable to wear and I have been reaching for this almost all month. The wear time, even with food and drink, is about 10 hours. I will say that it can get a little caky if you have to reapply over top of the already existing lipstick, so thin layers are important. It does a great job of staying put and it wont smear or move around the lips/face/teeth.

Do you have a go to red lipstick?
