Hourglass Extreme Sheen Lipgloss - Extreme is an understatement!

Color of the Year

If you're a lip gloss junkie, you owe it to yourself to try at least one tube of Hourglass Extreme Sheen Gloss. Yes, it's on the pricier side at roughly $28, but it's WORTH IT for this little dose of daily luxury. It's so shiny that your lips look like glass, giving even the nude shades a real eye catching va va va voom. It's not super sticky (it doesn't grab onto my hair like double stick tape!) and has a lovely light vanilla scent. Enriched with vitamin e, it actually feels like a nourishing lip treatment as opposed to just a gloss. Your lips don't feather and it makes a fantastic gloss enhancer over drier lippies. I especially love it in the drier winter months when fake heat makes my lips peel like crazypants. The shape of the tubes is another fantastic selling point, they've got a cool flattened tube making them convenient for pockets and evening bags or wristlets. I like the nude shade Truth and I especially like to wear it with a bold eye and a nude lip liner underneath it for extra staying power. So yeah- the one complaint is that like many glosses, you will need to reapply through out the day- don't leave your tube at home, especially if you want to maintain the glassy shine. If you're looking for really high pigments, you might want to look elsewhere;with a few exceptions, these are mostly pretty sheer colors. I'm also a huge fan of the handy dandy doefoot applicator.

Truth, a good neutral nude

As you can see, many of the nudes are quite similar in shade with slight variations of undertones to complement different skin tones.
