Hourglass Femme Nude Lip Stylo No. 6 Mauve Beige Review!

 Purchased by me (Affiliate Links)

I love Hourglass, plain and simple. Their products are consistently superb in quality, outstanding in texture and application, and simply a joy to use. Their Femme Nude Lip Stylo line of lipsticks have rightfully been flying off of store shelves since their launch, and frankly I can't imagine that changing. If you love nude lipsticks, then you really need to try these out, and my guess is that you will probably need at least one of these beauties in your stash.
According to Hourglass, their Femme Nude Lip Stylo is,

A seductive collection of nude lip crayons delivering a full-coverage formula and satin finish. Enclosed in a luxurious retractable stylo, Femme Nude enhances the natural sensuality of your lips by adding fullness, dimension and balance. With six shades to choose from there’s a nude for every mood.
Available in 6 Shades:

• Nude No.1 – A pale pink nude, the lightest of the collection.
• Nude No.2 – A honey beige nude with a warm tint.
• Nude No.3 – A medium rose nude, with a hint of pink.
• Nude No.4 – A pink beige nude, with a touch of deep rose.
• Nude No.5 – A golden peach nude with luminosity.
• Nude No.6 – A mauve nude, the deepest nude of the collection.

• Free of parabens, fragrance, phthalates, and sulfates
I chose No. 6 because a mauve nude is essentially a my lips but better shade for me, and choosing a color that mimics the color of one's own lips is one of the most flattering ways to select the perfect nude for one's specific coloring. It boasts full opaque coverage, a luscious creamy texture, and the perfect amount of cushion. The finish is satin, but a single blot renders it nearly matte. It is tremendously versatile, and can be worn alone, or under gloss. It can be dressed up or dressed down, and is equally gorgeous with intense makeup, or a barely-there natural look. It lasts at least 4 hours on me without the need to touch up, and isn't in the least drying on my lips. Additionally, the packaging is exquisite-- it is weighty and comfortable in the hand, and the twist up applicator mitigates any waste from sharpening. Every aspect of the Femme Lip Stylo product line was extremely well considered and executed.

  1. These all look so pretty on other people, but they are so terrible on me! They all turn a very nasty shade of brown on me, so that they look like different forms of putty on my lips. So sad, because I'm also madly in love with Hourglass.

    1. Hi Kate! I'm sorry to hear that they all turn brown on you-- especially sad because I know how much you love Hourglass! That said, you look so stunning in bold vibrant lip colors that it's hard to imagine you reaching for nude lip products when you have the rare ability to look so fabulous in rich vibrant colors! :-)

  2. Wow this sounds and looks amazing! It's been on my "curiousity list" since they were released but now I think I "need" this! Great post xx

    1. Hi Ellie! I'm super happy with it-- they are definitely worth taking another look at-- particularly if you love nude lipsticks! I'm glad you liked the post :-) Thanks for taking the time to stop by! xo
