Hourglass Siren is an “extreme sheen” lip gloss. Even though it is advertised as a “lip gloss”, I prefer to classify this particular shade as a liquid lipstick. Reason is, Hourglass Siren is not only super glossy, but also is super pigmented. Now, not every lip gloss from this Hourglass gloss collection is this pigmented.
I am absolutely in love with this product also because of how super glossy it is. It created a sure reflective glass like surface on the lips and the best part is that the shine does not fade away for 3 to 4 hours! Which is pretty amazing, considering the other lip glosses have the tendency to fade away within an hour or so.
It glides on the lips very smoothly and evenly and has this special thick and luxurious feel to it. It wears for 4-5 hours. Since it is a gloss, it does transfer when eating or drinking and touching up is necessary. It is quite moisturizing and not will not feather or bleed, which is great! It has a light, delicious vanilla scent that fades away once on the lips.
The color is a shimmery dark terracota with a metallic finish. It definitely has warm, red undertones, which makes this color ideal for girls with medium, olive and dark skin tones. Both cool and warm undertones can pull it off.
Overall, I love this gloss and will definitely repurchase.
Who can pull off: medium, dark and olive skin tones
