Hourglass are certainly a cult beauty brand, hitting the nail on the end with every product they release (ever heard of a thing called Ambient Lighting Powder, yep?). Due to their unbelievable hype surrounding them and the promises of warmer climates I decided to try out the Opaque Rouge in their infamous shade Icon (a classic red).

 The packaging is sleek however it is surprisingly small, I was expecting something similar sized to the Rimmel Apocalips. However, the size may come in handy in teeny tiny clutches for night outs. 

The shade is what I would describe as a blood red. A beautiful deep, dark red which has a very vampy feel to it without being berry toned. A very versatile shade which can look incredibly dark and sexy or very clean and elegant.

It is a liquid lipstick which dries, almost instantly, to a stain. Like most traditional stains, it is not at all drying and this really does last for hours without needing a touch up! Eat, sweat, swim, drink, kiss, you can do it all without this smudging, smearing or feathering!

 Overall this is a STAR product. Long lasting, comfortable lip colour is all a girl can ask for, especially this girl! So much so that I am already eyeing up their orange shade in Riviera! You can pick up this up or any of the other 8 shades at Space NK for £23, which may seem pricey however is totally worth it if you want a long lasting lip colour!

Have you tried Hourglass Opaque Rouge?
