Hourglass cosmetics review

I first heard about Hourglass Cosmetics when one of their ligglosses were featured in a Sephora holiday catalog. The lip swatch shown in the catalog immediately caught my eye (and my interest!). Sephora shared "Siren" extreme sheen lip gloss to me, and now I am sharing it with you -that is, if you're not in love with Hourglass Cosmetics already! I'm also going to introduce Prodigy hydrating lip gloss in this review!
Extreme Sheen Lip Gloss in "Siren"
I LOVE THIS! The color is a perfect red infused with copper (or at least that's how it appears on my lips). The shine is stunning, the pigmentation is BEAUTIFUL. And the smell! I think it smells just like butter cream frosting! It seriously smells so good! I think this color would suit nearly every complexion. It's not overwhelming on my fair skin, and it complements my hair perfectly! It also looked great on my sister who has a very golden olive complexion. I imagine this would look amazing on deep skin tones as well. This is just a really beautiful lip color. I wear reds on my lips often, so I usually top my red lipstick with a bit of this gloss. However, "Siren" is pigmented enough to wear on its own. It feels very comfortable on my lips, not sticky or overly thick. This color = instant glamour.

Prodigy Hydrating Lip Gloss in "Pulse"
This is probably one of the most comfortable lip glosses I have ever worn. The color is a stunning golden pink! The packaging is unlike any other to the exent of my knowledge. It's super slim and very compact and doesn't take up much space! You could probably slide this gloss into the cell phone pocket of your purse, that's how small and thin it is! I think the package packs a lot of pigment for being so tiny! In the photo swatch, notice how pigmented this gloss is! I only used a tiny bit to show the color, and it's just so pigmented! I see myself using this shade very often during this Spring and Summer!
