Hourglass Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Refillable Lipstick: One Day

In my last trip to Sephora, I picked up the Hourglass Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Refillable Lipstick ($42 CAD) in shade One Day. This is a weird system: I think Hourglass has priced the gold component and the actual lipstick (in the black case) separately, but I dont know where the option is to buy them separately.

The gold component is quite heavy and comes to a sharp end. No doubt that it is beautiful, but $42 CAD beautiful? If Hourglass is giving us the option to skip the golden weapon looking thing, then I would take it.

The actual product does not contain a lot of lipstick (0.03oz or .9G). For reference, a MAC lipstick contains 0.1 oz / 3 grams of product at about half the price ($24 CAD).

Hourglass Confession Ultra Slim High Intensity Refillable Lipstick One Day

The shade One Day is a medium, warm tone pinky brown colour. This has a nice cream finish, is soft upon application (but not so soft where I’m afraid of breaking the bullet) and leaves my lips with a healthy shine. After two swipes on my lips I get an opaque coverage that is even and really comfortable on the lips

This lasts on me as well as my normal cream lipsticks do (about 3-4 hours without eating). The lipstick is really nice, the shade is a beautiful nude (although not extremely unique)  and the component is extra, but nice. All in all this is a nice lip product, but not $42CAD nice. Everyone has their budget that they’re comfortable spending in and with Hourglass, you will get a pricer product. I like it, but I wont repurchase it or buy another shade so for me, its not beauty swatched approved.

      SO CHIC! lolol I’m living for that image. If it makes you feel better, it’s quite heavy so it can double as a self defence weapon 👨🏼‍🚒

        AHAHAHAHAHAHAHAH. No need for multi-use. I have accepted that I have succumbed to the marketing Gods and I am willing to spend a ridiculous amount of money on unjustified beauty items. I am at peace with my gullibility.

          Yesss!!!! I love that. Let me exit planet denial and enter the acceptance phase. The lies I tell myself are low key RIDICULOUS! I couldn’t justify buying the Tom Ford traceless foundation where I live so I picked it up whilst traveling in the UK as a “souvenir” even though it was more expensive with exchange FML.
