Hourglass Cosmetics is a line that I’ve seen in passing, but hadn’t stopped to really look into for some reason.   That was until I received an email from them asking me to try their lip gloss in this new, unusual packaging called Prodigy Hydrating Lip Gloss.  Certainly!  

I received this right before I went on vacation and I decided to take it with me, damned be the TSA restrictions, this fit within their guidelines.      This is the most innovative packaging in lip glosses that I have seen in a very long time.  And it’s not one that is so kooky that you would say “what are they thinking” but instead, “I want one of those”.   In fact, when I pulled this out of my pocked while on vacation, one of the people I was with looked at me and wondered aloud with major curiousity what is that little thingy you are using?   They thought it was genius too!

It’s about 3″ tall, about 1 1/2″ wide and less than 1/2″ thick.   The company says it’s perfect to fit in  your back pocket, which it is, but I honestly don’t know many women who walk around with things in their back pockets.   But, it does fit in a front pocket without feeling like lump in your pocket or a tiny clutch for night time too.   I have been addicted to this little gloss since I got it.  It’s creamy without being sticky and I love the Hypnotic shade.  It’s a medium dark rosy shade with some bronzy shimmer, lovely.  

The Hourglass line is also made without such things as parabens, sulfates, phthalates and artificial fragrances.   Great for those of us that are worried about bad ingredients in our cosmetics.   It’s $26, available at Sephora online and in stores now, as well as Hourglass Cosmetics online.
