It’s the time of year when I see a lot of nude lips in my future, and I can definitely see myself getting up close and personal with Hourglass Cosmetics brand new Femme Nude Lip Stylo collection.
When Hourglass Cosmetics does anything, they do it right. From packaging to product, I’ve never been let down by their commitment to luxury and quality that cannot be denied. With that in mind, I was excited to try their latest for Fall 2013, Femme Nude Lip Stylo.
Femme Nude Lip Stylo is a collection of six nude retractable lip crayons with with a creamy, full-coverage formula and satin finish. With a tagline of “Notorious Nudes”, you know you’re getting something a little more than the ordinary. These are more than just any old nude lip color, they’re have a little bit of “oomph” to add fullness and dimension with no worries of going flat. They’re currently available online and in Sephora stores and will be available at Barney’s New York, Bergdorf Goodman, and Space NK in August 2013.
The six shades include:
– Nude No. 2: A honey beige nude with a warm tint.
– Nude No. 3: A medium rose nude with a hint of pink.
– Nude No. 4: A pink beige nude with a touch of deep rose.
– Nude No. 5: A golden pink nude with luminosity.
– Nude No. 6: A mauve nude, the deepest of the collection.
The shade I selected is Nude No. 5.
How gorgeous is this warm-toned nude?
I love this color because it doesn’t fall flat and it feels great on your lips. The wearing power is great and it doesn’t fly off your lips in a minute, which is fantastic.
My Final Thoughts: After using the lovely Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo in shade Nude No. 5, I’ve become a big fan of these creamy nude lip pencils. You won’t find these shades in any other line around! However, the downfall of this lovely lip product is the price tag of $30.
Rating: B + (docked some points for the price)
