Here’s another one of the items from my recent Boots & Space NK Hauls – an Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo in Nude number 6.
I’ve been wanting to try Hourglass cosmetics for a while now, but they are pretty expensive, £22 for a lip crayon is definitlely a treat for me! I was on the Space NK site so thought I might as well!
The Lip Stylo comes in brown metallic casing, it definitely feels luxurious. The product is described as ‘A seductive collection of nude lip crayons delivering a creamy, full-coverage formula and satin finish. Enclosed in a luxurious retractable stylo, Femme Nude enhances the natural sensuality of your lips by adding fullness, dimension and balance. With six shades to choose from there’s a nude for every mood.’
The colour I went for was number 6, it’s a lovely natural nude pinky beige.
Now I’m not going to lie, I did have high expectations for this product, as you do when you purchase something for a lot of money, you assume you must be getting a good quality product. Well I wasn’t disappointed, but on the other hand I wasn’t amazed either. The Stylo was creamy and smooth on application, it had what I would describe as a more of semi matte finish than satin. I love mattes though so this is a point! It wasn’t drying and was very comfortable on my lips. I think if this was around a £10 – £15 price point I’d be raving about it as I do really like the product, but at £22 it was a nice treat, not an every day product though simply due to the price.
I hope you enjoyed my review xxx
