As promised, here is another review of the Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipsticks, this time in shade Canvas! If you read my last review on the the shade Icon, which is probably my favourite red lipstick product in the world right now, it is just too good, you’d know that I am besotted with these Hourglass Liquid Lipsticks. They are the just the perfect combination of matte and creamy. My lips never dry out when wearing them and they stay in place, and on, outstandingly. Absolutely zero flaking, too.
Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Canvas* is quite a dulled pink shade, almost a pink nude. On me, it’s a great shade for mimicking a natural pink lip colour – however I have noticed on others it doesn’t look as ‘fleshy’ as it does on me. It’s actually what I would class as a ‘Brigitte Bardot lippy’, as it reminds me quite a bit of her famous pink pout back in the day. Like Bridge, I love teaming it with strong eyes or even a natural face, and I mostly smudge out the edges of the lipline with my finger so it looks even more natural and plump!
Please forgive this semi-recycled pic taken from last week when I was shooting my hair chalks – the weather here has been so hot I’ve just done away with make-up altogether, especially face foundation-y stuff. JUST CAN’T BE DEALING WITH IT. So, yeah..
I have to say, whilst Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick in Icon lasted superbly on, Canvas for me isn’t boasting quite the same insanely brilliant results. It could be down to a number of things, but most likely the fact that I’m less careful when wearing it as if it smudges slightly it’s not the end of the world (being a pale colour and less obvious). So for me the staying power isn’t as great, but it’s still very good for a lipstick. I doubt you’d be disappointed, especially if you’re migrating from a traditional bullet lipstick.
When I’m not wearing my other Hourglass Liquid Lipstick (Icon), I pretty much always reach for this. And I even have plans to add several more to my collection so every occasion is covered! Another rave for the Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipsticks! They really are in a league of their own.
