If you can’t live without lipgloss but your makeup bag is already overspilling with products, check out Hourglass Cosmetics Prodigy Hydrating Lip Gloss!


The Prodigy Hydrating Lip Gloss comes in a sleek, one-of-a-kind tube to save you space while adding shine to your lips. The uber thin, metalized outer shell packaging feels very light and fits perfectly in my palm and pocket of my jeans. It also reminds me of L’oreal HiP Colour Presso, but classier and much more user-friendly (yay somebody finally got it right!)

There are 6 colors available – Eden, Hypnotic, Legend, Opium, Pulse and Surreal – which all seem pretty wearable on most skin tones. I was sent Surreal and it is a pearly salmon color that gives my lips a pretty, peachy sheen.

The lip gloss itself has a really nice, non-tacky texture and I never get that nasty white ring inside my lips like I do with MAC Lipglass. I also love that it is enhanced with Vitamin E and it keeps my constantly chapped lips moisturized without flaking.

Pigmentation-wise, the Prodigy Hydrating Lip Gloss is not very opaque but it does provide a nice pop of color with lots of shine. The color also does not rub off or disappear easily. Thanks Hourglass Cosmetics for creating such a nice gloss!

  3. Julie,

    I’ve never tried their lipsticks. How do they compare to say MAC or YSL?

  4. Nice Minna! You will love the gloss! The color looks a lot prettier on than in the tube.
