This is Hourglass Femme Rouge Velvet Crème Lipstick in Muse ($35, Sephora), a bright reddish coral. Copying my previous review, this cream finish lipstick is a bit on the dry side, but that also means that it lasts longer than the usual cream lipstick. It gives the lips a plump appearance by imparting a slight sheen on the lips. It is fully opaque in one pass. The lipstick is lightly scented and I find it quite pleasant.

Muse is the kind of shade that hits you in the face hard, and it hurts so good and you like it. ;) It’s very much a summer shade, but I’m not one to follow seasonal colour “rules” anyway. Muse is my sunny getaway in the dead of winter.

For those who worry about harmful ingredients in their cosmetics, Hourglass formulates the lipstick to contain no parabens, sulfates, synthetic dyes, or phthalates. If you fall in love with this lipstick, lipstick refill cartridges are available to buy as well. Look good and feel good, am I right? :)

 I totally love these lipsticks and if the price is right for you, I totally recommend them. They have a wide range of colours to choose from and I know you’ll find one (or many!) you’ll love.

    This is gorgiepants! I wasn’t thinking I’d like it (orange-y reds make me look borderline cracked out) but it’s such an interesting color and looks kind of AMAZING! Love!
