Beauty, MakeupTreat Your Lips Right

I’ve been looking for the perfect bright coral lipstick for awhile now.  I had some serious contenders, but all of them were too… something.  Either too bright or not bright enough or too glossy or just… not right.  (I’m picky, I admit it!)  Lucky for me, Hourglass sent over two of their new Opaque Rouge Liquid Lipsticks for me to try and one of them is perfect! 

Riviera is described as a tangerine shade – it’s definitely bright and not for the faint of heart, but it’s not so neon that it’s all people will be able to focus on either.  I love keeping the rest of my makeup neutral and then slicking Riviera on – it’s such a fun pop of color, especially as we head into the gloomy months of winter.  (Although someone should tell Los Angeles that – it’s supposed to be in the high 80′s here this weekend again!)  I also tried out Empress, which is a deep aubergine shade – so pretty with the plum shadows that I like to wear with my green eyes.  The formula on these is great – they look like glosses, complete with doe foot applicator, but once on, they dry matte and look like a lipstick.  They’re not glossy at all.  Very pretty and long-lasting too, which is always a plus.  I haven’t gotten my hands on it yet, but I hear that Icon, a blue red, is THE must have red for the holiday season.  Can’t wait to see it in person!
