I Want

Hourglass I Want Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity LipstickHourglass I Want Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a light-medium, peachy brown with warm, orange undertones and a satin sheen. It was richly pigmented and yielded opaque, even coverage in a single layer. The texture felt lightweight, creamy enough that it glided on with ease but did not slide around when worn. It lasted for four and a half hours on me and felt 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.).

FURTHER READING: Formula Overview for details on general performance and characteristics (like scent).

I Woke Up

Hourglass I Woke Up Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity LipstickHourglass I Woke Up Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a soft, medium pink with warm, yellow undertones and a satin sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that covered the lips evenly and without streaking. The lipstick was creamy enough to glide across the lips without tugging but not feel slippery when worn, so it stayed on for a solid four and a half hours and did not gather in my lip lines. It was slightly hydrating while worn.

If Only

Hourglass If Only Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity LipstickHourglass If Only Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a medium-dark plum with warm undertones and a cream finish.

If Only is really pretty, perfect for that summer to fall transition. Going to check out the dupes of course.
Thank you so much for listing the dupes for these btw Christine! :0

I’m in trouble with so many shades I like from this range. πŸ™ lol From these 3 I Woke Up and If Only caught my eye.

Sephora sale for me, I think I can wait.

I curious if the refills works without the gold outer packaging? They are a whole 30% cheaper in the CAN price so that might be where I buy most of the shades if they can work solo.

They have such nice shades!

Yes, the refills are totally workable on their own – they will feel cheaper/less stable since they are incredibly thin, but the cap clicks closed over the refill so they really are standalone products, IMO.

Ugh. I just bought I’m Addicted. I should have waited for If Only and I Woke Up. Well, what’s done is done!

Aaaaccck!!! I don’t have dupes for any of these, will be frantically scouring the dupes list, hoping I can find something that’s close and better value

Favorite out of this batch? If Only! But would still go for its $5 dupe instead. Not just because of the price, but CP Faded looks more rich and smooth on the lips. Not sure if CP still has it, though.

None of these are really doing it for me, I have Torte and I feel like I have a darker version of I woke up somewhere in my Bite stash.

All easy passes for me. If Only is the only one that might suit me, but at the price it would have to be a knock out colour to make me feel tempted.
