Bright Lips On A Rainy Day

One of the easiest way to cheer myself up on a dark and rainy day is to bust out the bright lipstick. This fall, Hourglass came out with their new range of matte liquid lipsticks called Opaque Rouge... aaaaand they're amazing.

I mentioned my love for the shade "Canvas" before on my YouTube channel, but this time the shade Muse has all the attention. These lip products go on smoothly like a gloss (with a doe foot applicator) and immediately dry to a perfectly matte finish. 

They feel lightweight and comfortable on the lips. The product does tend to bunch up close to the inside of the lips throughout the day so a good exfoliation beforehand is key. Here is Muse in all its glory:


You literally have to scrub this off with makeup remover at the end of the day. Staying power is awesome. Since the colour is so loud (and I love love love it), I kept the rest of the makeup very minimal and just wore a bit of light brown eyeshadow in the crease, a bit of bronzer and liquid liner.


I highly recommend these lipsticks if you're on the search for something bold and matte to switch things up.

What are your favourite bold lipsticks?

  5. Wow, Muse looks lovely on you! I recently bought an Opaque Rouge in Icon and I absolutely love it. A really pretty cherry red! And I agree, I often turn to bright lipsticks to brighten things up on a gloomy day :)

  10. I just bought Muse in the US and I love it!
    Unfortunately I think the texture is a little bit drying...I have to try it with completely 'healthy' lips.
    Muse looks GREAT on you!
