Seeker

Hourglass Seeker GIRL Lip Stylo ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a bright, pop of pink with warm undertones and a natural sheen. It had nearly opaque coverage, though it required two layers for truly full coverage results. The soft, emollient, and balm-like texture made application easy and comfortable to do straight from the tube, but it also made it possible to get sheerer coverage by applying less and smoothing the color out by pressing my lips together, if desired. On me, the color wore well for four and a half hours and felt moisturizing over time.

The GIRL Lip Stylo formula is supposed to have “modern color with luxurious hydration for a lustrous finish,” while the brand founder is quoted (on Sephora) stating, “I can build as much–or as little–color as I like.” I would describe the coverage semi-opaque and buildable, which seemed to fit the brand’s description. The consistency was smooth, creamy, and lightweight, but the color still adhered well to the lips (three to five hours, depending on the shade). I definitely felt like I could apply a little here, a little there, and then spread the color out by pressing my lips together for sheerer coverage, or I could apply a single layer and get semi-opaque coverage fairly easily. The formula was incredibly comfortable to wear: lightweight, hydrating, and smoothing. Some balm-like formulas that have more coverage can sit in lip lines, but I felt like these filled them and made them look softer. I didn’t notice any scent or taste.

Activist

Hourglass Activist GIRL Lip Stylo ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a soft, muted, medium-dark rosy plum with warm undertones and a cream finish. It had good color coverage that was buildable to opaque coverage in two layers. The lipstick had a smooth, lightly emollient texture that felt as comfortable as a lip balm but adhered better and didn’t feel as thick or as slippery. It wore well for four and a half hours and left my lips feeling hydrated.

Achiever

Hourglass Achiever GIRL Lip Stylo ($32.00 for 0.09 oz.) is a muted, medium-dark brown with a hint of plum paired with a lightly glossy sheen. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was buildable to full coverage with two layers. It was incredibly comfortable to wear, as the texture was smooth, creamy without being heavy, and hydrating over the four and a half hours it lasted.

Activist is perfection for me. Just right for one of those very easy to wear with anything more creative and crazy that I may do with my eye looks. Plus the name is me. If no others, this and Protector must be mine!

These colors are so pretty, but probably wouldn’t make me look that good. I might try them on if I get the opportunity, though 🙂

These have all looked so nice but I just can’t justify the price point since drugstore lip products have gotten quite good over the years.

Achiever is my kind of color! The dupes made me smile: in December I got Bobbi Brown’s Downtown Plum! My favorite shade ever (it comes out cooler on my lips) I love the formula of that lipstick too, so I am still safe on the no buy boat. 😀
