Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick Review, Photos, Swatches

Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick ($28) is a newly launched liquid lipstick from the brand for Fall 2012. Hourglass created these with a matte super pigmented finish and a 14 hour contentious wear without being drying or flaking.

They had me at the non drying, flaking part because I tend to do rather poorly with matte lipstick. I’ve run across a few matte formulas I enjoy using but if I’m honest I’m always reaching for the clear gloss to wear them with.

Let’s take a look at Hourglass Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipstick.


Hourglass No 28 Primer Serum Review and Swatches

There aren’t a ton of products that really grab my attention. It’s hard getting excited about beauty some times when I see a ton of repetitive ideas plus combine Musings of a Muse with my own obsessive beauty junkie ways and it’s understandable that occasionally I go into beauty burn out mode.

But sometimes something wonderful runs across my desk and I proceed to dance around and crow at the glory of it all. Hourglass No 28 Primer Serum is that some kind of wonderful for me.

I haven’t been this excited about a primer since Make Up For Ever introduced HD Elixir.

Facts is facts, this is expensive stuff but worth every single penny.

You NEED it.


Hourglass Cosmetics Veil Mineral Primer Review & Swatces

Hourglass Cosmetics Veil Mineral Primer is turning into a super fast fav of mine. I buy a ton of different primers but I typically like using hydrating ones and they aren’t exactly great for keeping makeup long wearing.

Hourglass Cosmetics Veil Mineral Primer kinda combines the best of both worlds here with a hydrating feel but enough silicone to allow for a smooth surface for makeup to adhere to.

Take a look!


Hourglass Aura Sheer Cheek Stain Review & Swatches

Being generally obsessed with cheek stain anything has taken me down the road to youthful, playfully pretty looks for most of makeup life. I’ve always gone the cheek stain route versus powders and creams because of the long wear time and the lovely little pop of color they give my cheeks and face.

In recent years, I started to use more and more powder blush which isn’t particularly forgiving on drier skin. Why oh, why did I ever stop using cheek stains?

Hourglass Aura Sheer Cheek Stain is the Cadillac of stains, seriously, this is gorgeous stuff although the near $50 price tag hurts my feelings a fair bit.


Lady Gaga Gaga Workshop Beauty Collection

I admit it, I’ve disembarked from the crazy train and I’m no longer Gaga’s fan girl.


Please don’t hate me.

She’s just become a little too much for me.

But I do so want to shop the good shop at her Barney’s Gaga Workshop particularly when goodies like Lipstick Queen Monster Red is calling my name!
