Hourglass Prodigy Lip Gloss in Hypnotic had me at hello

While I was on holiday in New York a few months ago I took advantage of the strong Aussie dollar and bought myself some Hourglass lip glosses (Hypnotic, Eden, Truth) from Sephora. Today I’ll be doing a review of Hourglass Prodigy Lip Gloss in Hypnotic.


Hourglass Prodigy Lipgloss in Hypnotic


Hourglass Cosmetics is a luxury line created by beauty veteran Carisa Janes. I discovered it a year ago after seeing photos Hourglass Cosmetics on the models at the F/W 2010 La Perla fashion show during New York Fashion Week.

Hypnotic is a darkened pink with fine golden and peach shimmer. Applied on the lips it gives a beautiful sense of dimension and juiciness.

The Hourglass Prodigy lip glosses are my holy grail in terms of texture. It is non-sticky but with a perfect amount of thickness to stop it sliding around the lips. Enriched with vitamin E, it is by far the most moisturizing gloss I have worn and feels delightful on the lips. Wear time is about average on me (2hrs before reapplication).

I’ve heard rave reviews about their primer and foundation as well but haven’t yet tried it for myself.
