Hourglass Prodigy Lip Gloss in Heroine on lips
The girls of summer are here! Meet the two new chicas joining the Hourglass Prodigy Lip Gloss line, a sheer pink called Heroine and her sheer beige sister, Ingenue ($26 each).
Both of these girls live up to Prodigy line with a hydrating, non-sticky, unscented and unflavored texture and light, natural-looking shine. I get about 90 minutes of wear time with them before having to reapply.
If you are/were a fan of the now defunct Chanel Aqualumieres (RIP!), you might like these a lot as I think they look and feel quite similar.

Ingenue on lips
Prodigy glosses don’t pack a heavy color punch, and these are probably some of the sheerest I’ve tried from the line. Both delicate shades look almost transparent on my pigmented lips, so I’ll probably end up using these more to add a kiss of shine atop lip liners and lipsticks than by themselves; however, if your pucker’s less pigmented than mine, they should pack more pop.
The price-to-pigment ratio isn’t great here. You don’t get much color for the money, but I think they do feel great on my lips. And the sleek, skinny packaging slips discretely into the pockets of my fave pair of J Brand 811 jeans (which are like denim from heaven for shorties), and that’s a big plus. They’re also free of parabens, sulfates, phthalates and synthetic fragrances, yea!
