Hourglass Cosmetics Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss in Fortune Review and Lip Swatches

I really like the  High Shine Lip Gloss from Hourglass Cosmetics.

The shade that I have is called  Fortune and it’s a very unique colour, or at least I don’t have anything like that. I would describe it as a warm duochrome metallic peachy pink.

The gloss comes with a brush which, as I find, applies the gloss evenly and precisely.  The brand promises  hydrating formula and it does glide on the lips easily and smoothly without enhancing the dry patches, lips definitely feel and look better. And it is a great bonus for winter!

I don’t find the formula to be  sticky but it does have a rather strong scent which some lip products have; but I personally don’t mind at all.

I hope you can see how beautiful and unique fortune is from the photos above which were taken without and with flash.  Not only the colour is amazing but the pigmentation is great. It gives a wonderful colour payoff only with one layer.

Although I like this shade a lot, I will be saving it for summer when my skin gets darker and will have a warmer tone. I just find that it would look more flattering then. Right now it’s  just ‘too warm and too metallic for me’ …

You should also know that Hourglass’ lip glosses are also without parabens, sulfates and phthalates.

Here is the swatch in the natural light and with a flash. It kind of reminds me of NARS Orgasmpeachy .

The price is £21/$28
