When they say it's long lasting, they mean it!!!
That lipstick comes in an elegant packaging (as the rest of the products of the brand...), the format it's similar to a lipgloss. You only need a single application to see the true color. And it really lasts. I can say from my experience that is drinking proof and almost, almost eating proof. When I say almost bare in mind that hellooooo you're eaaaatiiiinnnggg... It fades a bit after but I'm so happy with the lasting power and how it performs. I own the shades Rose (a neutral pink), and my favorite so far, Empress (a beautiful aubergine color), but I'm planning to get a few more =) You might feel the lips a bit dry but oh well it's a matte lipstick after all what did you expect? The official price in the website is $28. So yes, it's high end but if your pocket can afford it, I think is really worth to try, you can't go wrong with them.

Impressive <333 although I think it's pricey...
I gotta admit that I'm very impressed by this foundation, (actually by all the Hourglass products I've tried so far but that's another story...) I have a combination to oily skin that in hot weather tends to go to the oily side, and usually it's difficult for me to find a foundation that isn't too thick for summer, or way too matte, or not long lasting... This one in my opinion does the job amazingly well! I applied it one pump after my skin care routine and the Hourglass Mineral Veil Primer, and on top I powdered ever so slightly with Hourglass Ambient Lighting powder in Ethereal Light. In terms of lasting power I realized that after 8h. I still had that natural satin finish on my face, and was only after 9 or 10h. that I could see shine on my forehead, nose (a lot), and chin. But only there in a hot, humid weather. Like I said impressive! For reference I'm NW20-NW25 in Mac and I got shade Porcelain when I saw it for the 1st time in my hand I thought It had a a tiny bit of yellow(ish) undertones and I was worried about it, but once applied and blended you can see yellow nowhere. Actually it seems to neutralize my pink undertones so well =) Let's talk about coverage. The official website says medium, but in my opinion it's more like light to medium I guess you can say it's build-able. But doesn't look cakey. It cover minor redness and blemishes. But If you are trying to cover more than that, I don't think this foundation is gonna do it. About the skin care benefits I think it's too soon to tell, what it's true is that you feel the skin soft and smooth. Bare in mind that every skin it's a different world and what works for me it might not work for you or viceversa. As bottom line I'd say that I'm very, very, very, pleased with this foundation for me the only downside of it is the price, especially if you consider that the only way to get it here in Spain is online.
