Hourglass simply does the best statement matt lipgloss in my opinion. I have a couple of glosses I use regularly, but I find I always go back to Hourglass, and I wonder why I ever bothered to stray. The pigment is beautifully rich and it glides on easily. It has a matt finish, but it’s not cakey or drying, which means it doesn’t need an expert hand for application. This bright geranium red works for both summer and winter.
