QUICK REVIEW: I expected more. Hourglass products have always impressed me – from back when they were doing eyeshadow/blush palette “books”. I’m a fan of their N° 28 Primer Serum and Ambient Lighting Powders. Femme Nude left me feeling…like I was wearing a winter coat to the beach. The formulation was too thick, too matte and too heavy to be comfortably nude. A nude should be light, glossy, sexy. The shades are also too pale – mostly flat beiges instead of glorious nudes or YLBB tones. Even No. 6, which is described as a deep mauve nude – and the darkest of the available shades, leaves me looking pale, even on my slightly pinkish lips.
Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo does make a nice base for nude gloss though – but for $30, it should deliver a gorgeous pout on its own. It sadly, does not.
No. 1 – Pale pink nude with a white base. No. 2 – Pale honey based beige with slight warm tint. No. 3 – Light rose nude with touch of pink. No. 6 – Deep mauve nude. No. 5 – Medium golden peach nude with slight shimmer. No. 4 – Pinkish beige with touch of rose, medium tone.
