Hourglass Bare is a moderately warm-toned, light coral with a jelly finish. It is a permanent lip balm that retails for $49.00 and contains 0.25 oz.
Hourglass Bare No. 28 Lip Treatment Oil (Tinted) ($49.00 for 0.25 oz.) is a medium, pinky-coral with warm undertones and a glossy, jelly-like finish. It had medium coverage that could have applied more evenly. The product settled into my lip lines noticeably--not just deeper, vertical lines but horizontal and then some. The texture was lightweight, creamy and more like a plush gel that wasn't tacky. While it was moisturizing, it lasted for three and a half hours on me.
Note: I had significant issues getting three of the six shades in this formula to dispense product due to the packaging. I was able to successfully manipulate the packaging enough to get it to eventually dispense product, but please make sure you check out the overview for a full sob story on what that entailed (and what nobody should have to deal with on a $49-a-pop product!).
FURTHER READING: Formula Overview, which is a detailed review of the range as a whole.
No. 28 Lip Treatment Oil is dispensed with an opulent 24 karat, antibacterial, gold-plated tip to create a soothing effect on the lips. It’s available in one clear shade with a high shine finish and three flattering shades to provide the lips with a rich flush of healthy color.
