Hourglass Influencer GIRL Lip Stylo ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a soft, medium brown with subtle, rosy undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable pigmentation that covered the lips with even, smooth color. The texture was creamy, lightweight, and easy to work with as the color glided across the lips. It softened the look of a lot of my lip lines, too, which gave my lips a more hydrated, plumper appearance. The color lasted for four hours on me, and the formula felt hydrating over time.

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. 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. I didn’t notice any scent or taste.

Hourglass Leader GIRL Lip Stylo ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a bright, medium-dark fuchsia pink with subtle, cool undertones and a soft sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable color payoff that covered the lips with even, smooth color. The texture was creamy, thin without being clingy or emphasizing, and softened the look of my lip lines. This shade did not seem quite as hydrating as others in the line, though it was still lightly moisturizing over the four and a half hours it lasted. It also left a subtle stain behind.

Hourglass Icon GIRL Lip Stylo ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a bold, medium-dark red with cool, pink undertones and a natural sheen. It had semi-opaque, buildable color coverage that applied evenly and smoothly. It had a creamy, thin (but not too thin!) texture that glided across the lips nicely but didn’t melt too much that it was hard to be precise. The soft sheen and creamier consistency made it appear almost like a lip stain. The color lasted for five hours, was hydrating, and very comfortable to wear.

Spring 2017

Hourglass Holiday 2016 Ambient Strobe Lighting Blush Palette ($62.00 for 0.27 oz.) is a new, limited edition trio of shimmering blushes for the holidays.

From my understanding, the palette actually contains a new formula–a mix between the Ambient Lighting Blushes and the Ambient Strobe Lighting Powders–which is code for “shimmery blush.” The formula is supposed to impart “glowing color and a natural-looking, radiant finish.” In terms of value, both the Ambient Lighting Blushes and Ambient Strobe Lighting Powders retail for $38, while the blushes contain 0.15 oz. and the highlighters contain 0.16 oz., so let’s call a 50/50 mix and go with 0.155 oz. for calculations, which is $245.16/oz. The palette contains $66.19 worth of product. If you just do a per-ounce calculation against the standalone blush, then it has a value of $68.40, and if you do it against the standalone highlighter, then it has a value of $64.13. In all cases, you are getting a bit more than what you’re paying for, but you will get three shades for less than the cost of two (not that any of these are available on their own).

I was a bit confused over the inclusion of Incandescent Electra in the palette, as a shade by the same existed in another trio, and while it had similar colors in its pan, the one in this palette is dominated by the coral, so it was quite different–much more colorful, darker, and only really shares the undertone of the previously-released shade. Hourglass’ website says that it is the same as the previously-released shade, though. The products are marbled, so there can be variation in depth based from shade to shade, but this was beyond a mere variation! Also, per Hourglass, this is a holiday palette!
