I was dying to try this fairly newly launched Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo's as I have been recently loving all things nude.
When I was back in the UK in September I went into my fave Space NK (Hans Crescent next to Harrods) and spoke to my favourite make up expert (seek out Alice) and told her I wanted to try them but I didn't want a shade that was 'my lips but better'. I don't understand such shades, I may as well just put vaseline on, that makes my lips look better! Alice assured me that these lip stylo's weren't and recommended number 4 to me as my perfect nude. She has a great eye as it is indeed gorgeous. I also picked up 6 and wish I had picked up 3 and 5-I do have some NDulge points I need to spend so...
I love these lip stylos. Which is really a posh word for chunky lip pencil. Packaging in bronze and gold, they are quite hefty and feel luxe. They are super super easy to apply straight to the lips, giving a wash of opaque colour with one swipe. The finish seems to be semi matte, lightweight and non sticky. Perfect for lazy girls like me as no sharpening is required due to the twist up mechanism.
Both shades are so wearable and a instant staple in my make up bag for an on the go polished look.
It's definitely nude lip love with these two!
