How far would you go for the perfect nude lipstick? What would (or wouldn’t) you do? To what ends would you traverse?? Girl, because I know I’d go far! I’d wake up from a dead sleep at the witching hour, and THEN walk several miles, uphill, both ways, IN THE SNOW, to find a perfect nude lipstick.
I’m dedicated to mah nudes! And the one thing I want from them more than any other? — that they play nicely with my lip lines and don’t settle in them.
Well, that and that they don’t make me look half dead… You know what I’m talking about. Those nude lipsticks that wash you out, and make you look like a throwback to Michael Jackson’s Thriller video?
I’m so happy that this second batch of 10 new Hourglass Girl Lip Stylos — the nudes, pinks, peaches corals and browns — is just as smooth and pigmented as the 10 bolder, brighter colors we looked at the other day. They’re fantastic!
Light like a lip balm, these Girl Lip Stylos are pigmented like a medium-to-full-coverage lipstick (depending on the shade). They have a faint vanilla flavor and scent, and the non-stick formula lasts about two hours on my lips, which isn’t long, but it’s what I expect considering the texture.
Another thing I like about these: the powerful names. They have names like Believer, Activist and Futurist, which is such a refreshing change from the usual variations on “Girl Boss” and “Sexy Slayer” that I keep seeing.
Yeah, they’re lipsticks…but they’re also fabulous. And they’re fabulous little reminders, too, that we’re more than just our makeup. The tagline is “Recognition, not competition.” Recognize the good in yourself and the good in others, and I think that’s a lovely message. 🙂
I love all of these, but keep an eye out for Believer (it’s a cool pink nude), Creator (a warm, peachy pink nude), Explorer (a coral) and Seeker (a medium rosy pink). Those are my faves in this batch.
They’re all $32 each — which is kind of expensive, but that’s Hourglass — and they’re available now, if you’re curious.
