Hourglass Cosmetics Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss in Origami review

Described as a bubblegum pink, Hourglass Cosmetics Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss in Origami is a non sticky, hydrating lip gloss with a very faint yummy cupcake frosting scent 

I haven't tried other Hourglass products yet; often for me to take interest in a brand, I have to be impressed by their lip glosses first =P

While not classed as natural/organic, Extreme Sheen High Shine Lip Gloss is formulated without parabens, sulphates, and phthalates. A gloss I'll happily use!

Packaging is sleek, modern, and will stand out in any lip gloss collection. The flat doe foot applicator is very practical, because its flexibility allows a more controlled application as well as being foolproof. No wastage either.

The formula is absolutely incredible - super shiny, creamy, feels light and very, very comfortable on my lips. It feels more like a lip balm than a lip gloss! Origami is on the sheerer side; it just looks very pigmented in the tube.

I wouldn't say that the colour lasts all day; more like 4-5 hours, so through a meal and a few drinks, which is long enough for me. Don't think it's even possible for a non superglue lip gloss to last the entire day on its own.


Needless to say this is one of my current favourites! Now I need more Hourglass products...
