MVP Of The Week

I've pretty much been wearing the same face all week: concealer under my eyes, some powder to blot shine on my forehead, NARS Turks and Caicos, a quick wash of a neural shadow, Stila Smudge Stick in Purple Tang and a quick swipe of gloss. I've grabbed Hourglass Extreme Sheen Gloss in Truth on my way ou the door a few times this week and have been pleasantly surprised.

My love for these glosses is well documented, but I haven't reached for them in a while and I have to say that the love affair has been rekindled. In addition to being completely smooth and non-tacky, they are moisturizing, do not leave that white gummy residue on the lips or cause them to flake (hello, Trish McEvoy Beauty Booster gloss!) and yet last quite a while, leaving behind a soft stain. Truth seems to go with almost everything. It's shimmer-free and a perfect combination of peach and blush. Every time I've warn it, I've glanced in the mirror and said to myself "I love this gloss! I have to wear it more often!" It adds just the right depth and polish without giving the impact of a full-on lip.


  1. That color is perfect on you.

  2. Thanks, Ammie! It's become a real workhorse for me.

  3. You have beautiful lips. The gloss looks like a perfect shade for you too.

  4. Ditto! Great lips and this looks fantastic on you

  5. I love Hourglass glosses, but find that the Extreme Shines don't last very long on me, possibly because the formula is on the thin side...

    do you have the same problem?

    I have Truth too and love the colour to death though so i just reapply like a mofo hehe
