Hourglass Fortune LOTD and Review

This Summer, Hourglass Cosmetics is adding Fortune, a metallic pink gold shade to their ever popular Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss collection, and I was lucky enough to score a tube to review.

Quick take: Does as promised on the packaging. Not the cheapest but it makes up for it in quality. Not a fan of lipglosses that smell like food. B+

Product Claims
*Laminactine™ deeply penetrates, reinforcing fragile tissues damaged by excessive sun exposure while enhancing collagen and elastin production to smooth fine lines and form definition.
*Provides intense hydration to keep lips from cracking or chapping.
*Treated with super-antioxidant vitamin E to nurture and shelter lips from damaging environmental elements.
*Wears alone or layers over lipstick and liner to impart instant shine.
*Paraben-, sulfate-, synthetic-dye, and phthalate-free. 

Fortune looks gorgeous in the tube. It applies as a warm metallic golden pink.

Side note: man it’s so weird looking at my lips up close and personal! I was going to post a full face picture but I had a pretty bad allergic reaction to an SPF lotion I was testing out. Boo to octinoxate!

No lippie= SCARY!

What I liked: 
*It felt very smooth on my lips with no tackiness.
*Thin but opaque application.
*Super shiny and gorgeous color!
*Did not settle into lines.
*Moisturizing on the lips.
*It wears about 4 hours before I feel I need to reapply it.

No likey:
*The price, but any good gloss is going to set you back (hello Chanel!)
*Smells like cake frosting. I don’t like glosses that smell like food, however many people do. The smell faded after a little while.

Available May 2010 at Sephora and Barneys New York ($28)

Disclosure: I was provided a sample of the product by PR. I was not paid to do this review. My commitment is to my readers, and I will remain truthful to you.
