Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick


Lately, cosmetics companies have been all about the liquid lipstick (while last year, it seemed everyone and their mother was coming out with a sheer gloss/lipstick hybrid in a classic roll-up tube). Hourglass’ Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick just crossed our desks...and therefore our mouths, right after lunch...and stood out amongst the crowd for its insanely long wear time (the brand says 14 hours; we're inclined to agree), clutch-friendly, smushed-bullet-like packaging, and matte, 'dried paint' finish. It comes in a few straightforward shadeslike Icon, a dark cherry, and Raven, an attractive tomatoand settles into your mouth like a good stain should. It also doesn’t come off on anything (if this was a commercial, we'd be smooching a good-looking guy in a trench coat and laughing coquettishly in the movie-rain right about now. Maybe with a wink thrown in, for good measure.) Watch out, Ruby Woo—there’s a new red in town.

Lips pictured were painted with several coats of Raven.

    I've been looking for a new red lip stain. This one sounds like a keeper, I'm going to have to try it out!

    Wow wow, I detest lipstick because of its consistency, but love anything that can stain my lips well. I'll have to look into this product. My mother is always harping "Define your mouth! A man is attracted to beautiful lips."

      LOL I thought my Mum was the only person who did this. "Make sure you put something on your lips before you go out!"

    Oh my!
    Liquid lipstick? Somehow, that just seems like lipgloss to me.
    Though I must admit, I am definitely not beauty intelligent in any way at all!

    When I think about it though, liquid lipstick does sound pretty marvelous.
    A matte finish, gorgeous color, and very sensible packaging?
    Why yes, please don't mind me if I try that!
    And yes, I would like to be in a commercial kissing a good-looking guy in a trench coat. Yes, there would be rain and yes, I would still look glamorous in spite of that. And yes, of course, it would be perfect and I would look out of this world.
    Commercials ain't got nothing on me :)

    But seriously, that Raven color is very fierce. I need some of that fierceness in my life! :)

    I bought this in Icon (a vibrant, clear red) a few weeks ago and absolutely love it! What amazing, long-wearing formula.



  • Elle

    Although I applaud the long-wear ability and intensity of pigment of this lip product, it has the unfortunate habit of accentuating fine lines on the lips and touch-ups can quickly turn the finish into something heavy-looking. I must say, however, that Icon is a beautiful deep berry shade (whose dupe I subsequently found in the MAC store for nearly half the price, texture notwithstanding).

    I so wanted to love this, but it absolutely decimated my lips. Awful. Unbelievably drying on me. The packaging is amazing, tho!

  • Anne Regan

    I'm really loving the Raven. I was a MAC Ruby Woo gal but it was too drying...I love the matte look but hate how it ravages your lips. This Hourglass Raven stays on all day, needing only minor touch ups after meals, but it seriously goes the distance. As with all matte lipsticks, you need to apply a lip balm or regular lip moisturizer in the evenings to rejuvenate. If you're able to stick with that routine, it's the perfect red lip.

    Liquid lipsticks are the best for me. Great color.
