Received the @hourglasscosmetics #confession box from @influenster! I was super excited to try this luxe, skinny #montblanc pen looking like lipstick- it’s actually a refillable tube, and is can be used with refills in all colors from the line. That thing is cute! I mean look at the packaging! Howeverrrrr as detailed below, I didn’t get to flex.
But first- here’s the description of this little jewel from the @hourglasscosmetics website: “Each ultra slim refillable lipstick delivers saturated, longwearing color with a satin finish. Featuring the ultimate luxury lip accessory, the sleek gold applicator is designed to be used interchangeably with the entire collection of Confession Ultra Slim Lipstick Refills. Elevate lipstick to a new level of luxury.” Ooooh!
I received the color “I’ll never stop” from @influenster , which was the darkest shade among the three I was offered to choose from. I won’t lie- I’m very disappointed in the color match (see second picture) . I mean you can see for yourself: it’s ridiculous and there’s literally no way I can make this work; no lip liner under the sun will ever make this palatable on me. And even if there are, I refuse to put that amount of work into making a lip color work- I’d be blending until the #Rapture.
@influenster , please keep us #melanin rich girls in mind. We also love makeup, and experiences like this are disheartening- especially after we are hand picked as being good matches for cool campaigns, hyped up, and then sent beige lipstick.
I therefore have zero opinion on the product- I can’t estimate anything because I haven’t used it; I am however still intrigued by it, and would be willing to eventually try a deeper color refill.
I was sent this complimentary product by @influenster to try and give an honest review.
