Hourglass Imagine Extreme Sheen Lipgloss

Hourglass Imagine Extreme Sheen Lipgloss ($28.00 for 0.24 oz.) is described as a “peach champagne shimmer.” It’s a milky peach gloss with lots of peach and peach-gold shimmer. It doesn’t have a ton of color, but it does lighten and add some warmth to my natural lip color, along with lots of shimmer. MAC Naked Space is more pigmented and orange-toned. Dior Satin Peach has more color. NP Set Mauritius has a milkier color and more of a sheen. Cle de Peau #2 has more shimmer and sheen. Chanel Pin-up and MAC Nymphette are slightly pinker.

The Extreme Sheen formula is supposed to have high-shine, rich pigment, no feathering, and be moisturizing. The brand’s description is frustrating, because while some shades are most certainly intensely pigmented, many of the shades are sheer and seem sheer in a deliberate way. In this instance, Imagine is semi-opaque but my natural lip color peeks through because the pigmentation is primarily in the form of shimmer. On more pigmented lips, I would expect this to look rather different.

The texture is thick without being goopy, non-sticky, and moisturizing. It smells a little like creme brulee to me, lightly sweet but ont cloying. The wear is just under three hours, but the shimmer doesn’t feel gritty, and you won’t find it travels while you wear it either. The glossy shine is definitely there.

P.S. — I have the older tube, which is only 0.12 oz., but a Google search showed that the new tubes seem to have 0.24 oz., which makes sense given that the smaller tubes (same style packaging, just miniature) from holiday were 0.12 oz. each.

Lovely! And your eye makeup looks STUNNING! I absolutely love it! Would you by chance be able to let us know what you’re wearing? I love how it brings out the greenish hues in your eyes. 🙂

Your eye makeup is gorgeous! I know you mostly do reviews but it would be nice if you did a tutorial on it or at least tell me me what you used? =)
