Hourglass Cosmetics Brings High Shine For Summer With New Shades Of Their Panoramic Long Wear Lip Liner & Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss

Press Sample

By Sheila Arkee

If it were possible to go steady with a cosmetics brand, my choice would be Hourglass Cosmetics. Offering luxurious, high quality makeup that packs a punch and rarely disappoints, they are pure elegance from product to packaging.  Just in time for Summer, Hourglass has released five new shades of their Panoramic Long Wear Lip Liner and  three new colors of the Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss. Today I have Eden and Ballet to share with you.

The Hourglass Cosmetics Panoramic Long Wear Lip Pencil is a dual ended pencil that comes along with a very handy lip brush.

The pencil is very easy to apply and blend, and is indeed extremely long wearing and won’t fade or feather.

It’s lovely paired with the Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss, but also lovely when worn alone and will not dry out your lips.

The Hourglass Cosmetics Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss comes with an unique gel technology to deliver long-wearing results that will not bleed.

The texture is very plush, not annoying or heavy at all, with a beautiful high shine. Ballet is a beautiful bright pink that would work well with any number of makeup looks.

I tested this lip combination on a day that required heavy chatting and chewing, and was amazed to find the gloss remained through it all. In fact, five hours later I was still rocking that gloss. Even my assistant approved!

My Final Thoughts: While Hourglass Cosmetics is a tad on the pricey side, in my opinion the quality of the products makes the brand a worthwhile splurge. I’m captivated by the Panoramic Long Wear Lip Liner in Eden and Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss in Ballet, both excellent colors for the Summer months.

P.S. The much loved, once limited-edition Ambient Lighting Palette is now a permanent addition to the line and back in stock at Sephora!

    I love Hourglass products but sometimes I just can’t get past the price! But it’s true you do get what you pay for.

    Just curious, did the gloss have a scent at all? Nothing stinks more then …well… a stinky gloss

  • Anastasia

    I haven’t had a chance to try Hourglass lip products, but I really plan on getting a couple as soon as I get a paycheck that will make me feel comfortable dishing out $$$ on them. Fabulous shades on you, btw!

    I have several of the Hourglass Ambient powders, and one sample of a very light lipgloss. I’d love that pink one! I’m not sure about the brush on the lipliner, though. I’d forget to wash it!

  • BTBAshley

    The lipgloss is SO beyond pretty. I actually haven’t tried anything from their lippie line yet. I might have to nab the gloss.

  • Cintia (Vanilla Dreams)

    I mostly use lipsticks but I am addicted for long lasting effect.
