I Believe

Hourglass I Believe Confession Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a bright, medium fuchsia pink with cool, blue undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque color coverage that glided onto the lips evenly and smoothly without tugging on the lips during application. The consistency was lightweight, creamy but not slippery, and comfortable to wear. It lasted for five hours and was lightly hydrating.

The formula is supposed to have “creamy, saturated, longwearing color with a satin finish.” It’s a light-medium thick formula that was typically opaque with a lightly creamy texture that glided on without tugging but did not slide around while worn. The majority of shades had a natural to satin finish, and they lasted anywhere from four to seven hours with light hydration. The best performing shades were light to dark while the lightest and deepest shades weren’t quite as consistent.

The lipstick can be purchased with the full packaging/applicator for $34 or as a refill-only for $22. The refill packaging is substantial enough that it is usable on its own, as there’s a detachable base that the refillable cap clicks onto (with an audible click), but they are very slim–and that’s not a surprise given they only contain 0.03 oz. making them one of the smaller lipsticks on the market. Slim lipsticks typically contain around 0.07 oz. of product and are usually smaller than the average standard lipstick tube (which tends to be between 0.10 and 0.12 oz.).

I Can't Wait

Hourglass I Can’t Wait Confession Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a slightly muted, medium-dark plum with warm, red undertones and a cream finish. It was richly pigmented and yielded smooth, even coverage as the formula was lightly creamy and glided on with ease. The texture did not feel overly slippery or too emollient, so it sat well on the lips and stayed on for a solid five and a half hours. It felt moisturizing while worn.

I Live For

Hourglass I Live For Confession Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a bold, medium-dark orange with warm, red undertones and a cream finish. It had opaque color payoff in a single layer, while the texture was lightweight, smooth, and creamy enough to spread across the lips without dragging or tugging but not feel slippery or move around while worn. The formula was lightly moisturizing over the five hours this shade wore for.
