Hourglass Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss






I'd probably be writing a much favorable review of Hourglass Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss had it not been for the godawful brush. Of course, this could be a one-time, faulty mutant of a tube, so I'm not completely writing off Hourglass and their glosses, but I've never come across such a mess. This is why I usually try to test at least two different colors of just about any new-to-me product, but I bought this gloss online and wasn't convinced by any of the available swatches. Note to brands and stores: show us better swatches and photos if you want us to buy your products.

So, what do we have here (other than coarse, uneven and unruly bristles)? Extreme Sheen whatever is actually a nice lip gloss. It's not too sticky, feels nice and definitely keeps lips moisturized and happy. It's not unique enough to stand out among dozens of similar products, but if it weren't for the applicator I'd reach for it quite often.

Primal is a red based pink of medium intensity and shimmer. It's pretty and flattering against my skin, so I'd be willing to forgive the strong cupcake scent if not for the bigger issue here.

Bottom line: Meh.

Hourglass Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss ($28) is available from Barneys and Sephora.
Photos: Mine, of course.
