I've Been

Hourglass I’ve Been Confession Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a medium, plummy brown with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had rich, opaque pigmentation that applied evenly and smoothly across the lips. The texture was lightweight, creamy without being slippery, and glided on with ease. This shade wore well for five hours and was lightly hydrating over time.

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.).

One Time

Hourglass One Time Confession Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a medium-dark, rosy plum with subtle, warm undertones and a satin sheen. It had nearly opaque pigmentation that covered the lips with smooth, even coverage. The lipstick was creamy enough that it did not tug when applied but sat well on the lips and did not slide around over time. It lasted for five hours, left a subtle stain behind, and was lightly moisturizing.

When I'm With You

Hourglass When I’m With You Confession Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a dark berry with cool undertones and satin finish. It had good color coverage, though it was not quite opaque, that applied evenly on the lips and felt comfortable to apply as it did not tug or drag on the lips. The texture was lightweight, smooth and lightly creamy but did not feel slippery or move around on the lips over time. On me, it stayed on well for six hours, left a fuchsia stain behind, and was somewhat hydrating over time.

Oh, noooo!
When I’m With You looks so so gorgeous, and PERFECT for me!
AND Hourglass is cruelty-free!
And the durned lipstick is $34!
Oh, well; I could stand to cut down on eating, anyhow … 🙂

Oh, mercy; now I’m eyeing One Time, as well; it looks a bit more rose, less purple, than When I’m, and that might serve me better.
If these weren’t 34 freakin’ dollars, I’d buy BOTH.
I may, anyhow …
Let’s see, who said, “I don’t mind paying more for cruelty-free!”?
I think it was … Carla!

I love I’ve Been. It pulls quite a bit cooler on me but I have very rosy pigmented lips. Impatiently waiting for One Time to arrive! It looks beautiful on you, Christine.

I’ve been wearing some of the lighter shades (I Want, I Woke Up) and am not really feeling it. I Want is a perfectly nice nude but perfectly nice nudes can be bought for less. Now the darker shades on the other hand….those are fabulous.

I love and want them all! These are all my kinda colors for fall. Especially I’ve Been. That one is my favorite!

Thanks for the price breakdown, Christine! I’m glad to see that my Pat McGrath Mattetrance splurge was actually a sound economic decision. 😂😂😂
