Hourglass Nectar Extreme Sheen Lipgloss

Hourglass Nectar Extreme Sheen Lipgloss ($28.00 for 0.12 oz.) is a brightened coral with subtle pink undertones. It applies nearly opaque, but it doesn’t apply as evenly as I’d like–close but there are still a few uneven areas. It has a high gloss finish with lots of shine and gives lips a rather juicy look from the creamy finish.

my thoughts on the formula: It is such a rich, luxurious gloss that applies beautifully and evenly while delivering opaque color with very little product. The formula is thick without being goopy, non-sticky, and very moisturizing. I get three to four hours of wear. There is a light, sweet scent–reminiscent of perhaps creme brulee–that doesn’t feel overwhelming nor smell synthetic.

  • Product: 27/30
  • Value: 7/10
  • Ease of Use: 4/5
  • Packaging: 4/5

final thoughts: Unfortunately for Nectar, Siren was the first Extreme Sheen I tried and such a dazzling shade at that, I find it hard to be as enthusiastic about Nectar as I was over Siren. Personal preferences and all that, you know!  If this applied more evenly, it would have been rated higher.

  6. Olivia

    Oh, that’s ok! They are really expensive for a cheek stain anyway :P

    not impressed by swatches but looks nice on you. definitely not a shade I would wear. not a fan of orange/coral lipstuff. siren was much more appealing.

    (I just tend to look at colors and put them in different places on a face:
    red/pink/rose/crimson= lips
    peach/pink/coral= cheeks
    blue/green/purple= eyes
    black/brown= lining/defining

    I know people can & do mix things up and get creative but I tend to think the further you stray the better your skills have to be for it to remain attractive & I do not rate my skills that highly.)

      Wow, ditto! *LOL*
      Except, I rarely do blue eyeshadow.

  8. Have you ever tried Truth? I love it, and I bet it’d look great on you.

  9. It looks really creamy and pretty on you!

  10. Whitney

    Where is the Love it or Leave it poll?

  11. Adelita

    It looks gorgeous on you!
    Too bad I can’t wear coral-orangey lippie without looking hideous. I think I prefer Siren over this one….

  12. Oh my gosh, what a gorgeous color!!! It looks like it goes on really smooth too.

  13. Avin

    Siren WAS gorgeous and had so much depth it blew my mind, but this is FAR more suited to my style. Thanks for the great swatches!!

    Im pretty sure the Revlon Colorburst lipgloss in Papaya is a dupe for this! Except Papaya has very tiny shimmer parricles in it
