GIRL Lip Stylo
We love that GIRL Lip Stylo beautifully delivers on its promises of "the color intensity of a lipstick fused with a luxurious blend of shea butter, jojoba, mimosa and sunflower seed for softer, fuller lips."
This retractable, chubby stick lip color has a light balm-like texture that feels comfortably smooth as it hydrates lips. Although it's not a long-wearing lipstick, it delivers full-bodied color for the couple of hours that it lasts, and true to claim, the satin finish helps lips appear fuller.
There are so many gorgeous shades that you may find it difficult to narrow it down to just one. The colors range from lighter nude tones to brighter or deeper hues, some of which leave a stain of color after the top layer has worn off.
The light vanilla scent comes from vanillin, one of the few truly gentle, non-irritating flavoring/fragrance ingredients there is. The shea butter and several of the plant oils in this formula also happen to beneficial for skin, which is a nice bonus.
If you're looking for budge-proof lipstick, GIRL Lip Stylo isn't your best bet, but if you want plush, hydrating color, then this is a great choice!
- Comfortably smooth light balm texture hydrates lips.
- True to claim, the plush satin finish helps lips appear fuller.
- Lots of gorgeous shades to choose from.
- Contains beneficial shea butter and plant oils.
- If you're looking for budge-proof color, this isn't the product for you.
Hourglass Cosmetics bills itself as luxury performance makeup, and for the most part that description is apt. The luxury aspect is apparent in the brand's packaging, which evokes sophistication and glamour. As for what's inside, while not every Hourglass product is a blockbuster, it has a number of strong products in its lineup, particularly its Ambient Lighting collection of powder makeup products. There are also some standout options for lip colors, and its Veil Fluid Makeup Oil SPF 15 foundation is a blogger and Beautypedia favorite for good reason (you can find out exactly why in our individual review). Hourglass does offer a small selection of skincare, but when it comes to this brand makeup is truly where its strengths lie.
