You know you have a winner in your hands when the straight intern at your office says to you first thing in the morning, "That's a great lipstick!" Well Ethan, it ain't a lipstick, but you got one thing right: it is pretty great. He was, of course, referring to the Hourglass Unreal High Shine Volumizing Lip Gloss. I was wearing Icon, a super pigmented raspberry red that finishes as juicy as the fruit. Its luminescence was positively glass-like! It smelled minty and felt appropriately cooling too — not stinging — for a super plumped effect. I already have thick lips but man, Hourglass made my Jessica Rabbit dreams come true. Came lunch time, I dug into some bak kut teh, during which the lip gloss clung onto me for dear life. I would say about 20% of the product remained after my final sip of the soup. Not a lot, but I could deal with how it faded — softly, leaving a tint where the gloss was, and a little halo of shine around the rim of my lips, one I was able to blend out before heading back to work for a proper touch up. My second application however, pretty much lasted the rest of the day. Yes, there was transfer (naturally, it's a gloss after all) on my teacup but it was no biggie. My lips always felt soft and hydrated, something that almost never happens without constant lip balm touch up. As for its non-sticky claims, my lips felt more bouncy than gluey when I smacked them together, though strands that get caught in the goo won't exactly fly off on their own. Duh. 5/5.
