Euphoric Fusion

Hourglass Euphoric Fusion Ambient Strobe Lighting Blush ($38.00 for 0.15 oz.) is a soft, medium pinky-plum with warmer undertones and a luminous sheen. The powder was incredibly smooth and finely-milled, though it kicked up excess powder in the pan and looked dusty when swatched, but the more I blended it out, the smoother and more luminous it looked on the skin (without looking dusty or dry). It had medium, buildable coverage (up to semi-opaque) and the shimmery finish never emphasized my skin’s natural texture. The color stayed on well for eight hours before fading on me.

The Ambient Strobe Lighting Powder is designed to have the “illuminating effects” of their Strobe Lighting Powder with “vivid cheek colors.” The formula features “buildable color” with a “natural-looking, radiant finish.” The texture of the powder is very, very silky and finely-milled, which can result in noticeable powder that gets kicked up in the pan, though they apply beautifully to the skin and never look dry or dusty actually applied (which is where it counts!). One of the things I have noticed over the years is that the depth of color can vary dramatically depending on the marbling of the powders; some have more of the “Strobe” shade and others have more of the “blush” shade.

The Best & Worst: Hourglass GIRL Lip Stylo

Hourglass GIRL Lip Stylo
Hourglass GIRL Lip Stylo

Hourglass GIRL Lip Stylo ($34.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a new, permanent twist-up jumbo lip crayon available in 20 shades. The formula had semi-opaque, buildable coverage with a smooth, creamy, and lightweight consistency. I felt like I could apply a little here, a little there, and then spread the color out by pressing my lips together for sheerer coverage, or I could apply a single layer and get semi-opaque coverage fairly easily. The formula was incredibly comfortable to wear: lightweight, hydrating, and smoothing. Some balm-like formulas that have more coverage can sit in lip lines, but I felt like these filled them and made them look softer for the most part. I didn’t notice any scent or taste.

Liberator

Hourglass Liberator GIRL Lip Stylo ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark berry with reddish undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that applied beautifully to the lips with smooth, even coverage. The finish was luminous without being too glossy or emollient, so the wear time wasn’t compromised, but my lips looked smoother and plumper. This shade wore well for just over five hours and left a subtle stain behind. The formula felt hydrating to my lips.

The GIRL Lip Stylo formula is supposed to have “modern color with luxurious hydration for a lustrous finish,” while the brand founder is quoted (on Sephora) stating, “I can build as much–or as little–color as I like.” I would describe the coverage semi-opaque and buildable, which seemed to fit the brand’s description. The consistency was smooth, creamy, and lightweight, but the color still adhered well to the lips (three to five hours, depending on the shade). I definitely felt like I could apply a little here, a little there, and then spread the color out by pressing my lips together for sheerer coverage, or I could apply a single layer and get semi-opaque coverage fairly easily. The formula was incredibly comfortable to wear: lightweight, hydrating, and smoothing.

Hourglass Seeker GIRL Lip Stylo ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a bright, pop of pink with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque coverage, though it required two layers for truly full coverage results. The soft, emollient, and balm-like texture made application easy and comfortable to do straight from the tube, but it also made it possible to get sheerer coverage by applying less and smoothing the color out by pressing my lips together, if desired. On me, the color wore well for four and a half hours and felt moisturizing over time.

Believer

Hourglass Believer GIRL Lip Stylo ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a medium, pinky beige with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that applied somewhat evenly. The lighter color paired with the more balm-like texture seemed to result in slight unevenness and a greater tendency for the color to dwell in my lip lines. I also saw slight “lines” if I pressed my lips together. It had a creamy, comfortable-to-wear kind of texture that didn’t tug on the lips and felt hydrating over the three hours it lasted on me.
