To help you achieve the perfect nude lip for fall, Hourglass Cosmetics brings us Femme Nude Lip Stylo, a new collection of nude lip crayons to suit every mood and skintone.
The Lip Stylo comes in a luxe-looking chubby pencil with a clever retractable design so all you have to do is twist up and apply directly onto the lips – talk about nice and easy! Ingredients include castor seed oil and Vitamin E to nourish and protect lips. It is also paraben, phthalates, fragrance and sulfate free.
There are 6 shades available, ranging from light to deep nudes with pink, beige and mauve undertones. Nude No.3 is a gorgeous medium nude with pink undertones, that is perfect for my NC30 skin. NARS Biscayne Park Satin Lip Pencil is slightly pinker; NARS Isola Bella Satin Lip Pencil is darker and warmer; MAC 3N Lipstick is just a tinge lighter and glossier.
Like the NARS Satin Lip Pencils that I loved, this felt very creamy and glided on easily and evenly, giving great coverage with just one stroke. However, it did not feel as moisturizing on my dry lips and had a tendency to highlight flakes and fine lines. The finish was soft and satiny and the color managed to stay on well for 2-3 hours.
Oh and did I mention how easy application was and no sharpening is ever required?
Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo is available at Sephora, Barneys New York, Bergdorf Goodman and Space NK for $30.
