The Femme Rouge Velvet Creme lipsticks by Hourglass are one of the very few that possess the qualities to make it your HG of lipsticks. The casing is fantastic, as it has those nice magnetic "clicks" so you know you've closed it. Plus, the cap will most likely not separate from the tube in your purse. I took off one lippie because I wished it would last longer, and the fact that the tip is an unusual shape which I have to practice in my applications.
For instance, "Whisper" is that perfect opaque nude that lasts much longer than other run of the mill "light" lipsticks. It is opaque, moisturizing, and lasts a good 4 hours. It's a cross between a pink and peach, and closely resembles my all-time HG which is Georgio Armani #102. It feels good on the lips. It is not drying and pulls on lips. Nor does it settle into the lines in lips, but instead, it creates the illusion of larger lips which I so desire!
I definitely will explore and sample other lipsticks by Hourglass. They have a winner in these under-rated lipsticks, and hopefully, this review will reach an audience that is ready to splurge on a fantastic lipstick.
