G’morning and happy hump day, lovebugs. Some of your comments on Monday got me even MORE interested in the Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Creme Lipsticks (click here for the review), so I stopped by Sephora yesterday to get an even closer look.
I took swatches of the whole
shebang collection (for reference, I’m an NC35). Take a gander, and let me know what you think.

Readers Klara and Phuongk wondered how Femme Rouge in Noctural compares to NARS Scarlet Empress lipstick and Benefit No Competition lipstick (good call, ladies!); here’s a comparison swatch:

See anything you like?
That reminds me, I was browsing one of my favorite blogs yesterday and found this article explaining why some lipsticks, like Hourglass Femme Rouge, are using that funky square tip. Turns out that some folks think the shape makes it easier to load a lot of color onto lip brushes.
Hmm… Time for a test, I think.
