This is my one and only Hourglass liquid lipstick and after trying this one I know I am going to try more of them. This is in color “Icon”. The name speaks for itself, as it is a classic true red color with cool undertones. Pretty much any skin color can pull this lipstick color off, because it is a true red. The color payoff is wonderful, one swipe is enough for full coverage. Application is very smooth and has a luxurious feel to it. It is described as an “extreme sheen” lipstick. I personally a matte lipstick lover, but this one does have a very distinct, yet elegant glossy sheen to it. Surprisingly the sheen is very long lasting. I wore this lipstick for four hours straight and neither the glossiness, nor the intensity of the color showed any signs of fading.
In a way, it reminds me of MAC “Rooby Woo”, except for “Rooby Woo” being matte and having more blue undertones to it.
The smell is very subtle and reminds me of vanilla ice cream. It does leave a stain behind, but it is easily removed.
Best matching lip liner: MAC “Cherry”.
