Hourglass If I Could is a moderately cool-toned, dark berry with a cream finish. It is a permanent lipstick that retails for $34.00 and contains 0.03 oz.
Hourglass If I Could Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Lipstick ($34.00 for 0.03 oz.) is a brighter, medium-dark plum with subtle, warm undertones and a creamy, lightly glossy finish. It had semi-opaque pigmentation that was slightly buildable but had a more emollient quality to the texture that made it less amenable to building up. It was easy to apply, never tugged as I glided it across the lips, but it had a noticeable translucency from the more slippery consistency. The lipstick applied evenly, though, which was an upside. It wore well for five and a half hours, was somewhat hydrating, and left a very subtle stain behind.
