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.).

My Favorite

Hourglass My Favorite Confession Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a brighter, medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a natural sheen. The color payoff was fantastic–opaque and even–with a smooth, lightly creamy consistency that glided across the lips effortlessly but applied the color well. While it had a light sheen, the formula itself wasn’t slippery, so the color stayed in place well. On me, it lasted for five hours and was lightly hydrating.

When I'm Alone

Hourglass When I’m Alone Confession Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a deep plum with subtle, warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had good pigmentation, though it wasn’t full coverage, with a smooth, even color application. The consistency was lightweight, creamy without being slippery, and it sat well on the lips. The lipstick never tugged on the lips, and the color did not feather over time but had a miniscule amount of color that settled into my deepest lip line after a couple of hours of wear (but I could smooth it back out if desired). On me, this shade stayed on well for six hours and left a subtle stain behind while being somewhat moisturizing.

I Wish

Hourglass I Wish Confession Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a light peach with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had nearly opaque pigmentaiton in a single layer that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips without dragging. The texture was very lightweight but was thicker than the average lipstick, and I did have a bit of color that pulled into my lip lines with this particular shade. It wore well for four hours and was lightly moisturizing.

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 pcakaging/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.

Hourglass Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.03 oz.) is new formula that is available in 32 shades (two are exclusive to Hourglass’ website and are not pictured below). The lipsticks are available with packaging for $34 (includes the shade you purchase, it’s not an empty tube!) or as refills for $22. The refill packaging is sufficient for standalone use, as it has a cap that clicks back into place and has its own base that allows you to twist it up.

Worth noting, 0.03 oz. is one of the smallest lipstick sizes I’ve come across (even slim lipsticks are typically 0.07 oz., whereas more standard tubes contain 0.10 oz. or 0.12 oz.), and by the ounce, it ended up being one of the most expensive lipsticks on the market (I’ll have more specific comparisons in my first review).
